The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Son of A “Bad Word”

Boy! Did that make me laugh!!

A couple weeks ago, it seemed no matter what I was listening too, whether it was on the radio, or on TV, I would hear the phrase, “son of a bad word”; I literally laughed out loud!

I thought to myself, finally a way of expressing ourselves without offending someone! It still packs a punch if you need to “get it out”, but at the same time shows class and respect to those around you, who may be easily offended.

I also thought to myself, “guess someone has run out of swear words”; regardless I thought it was great!

We have all been there, where we needed to let a good ol’ swear come flying out of our mouths! We are all guilty of letting one slip! I will be honest, I am guilty of having let a good one rip, every now and then; part of being human!

The more I thought about it, the more I thought how by saying, “son of a bad word”, would actually smooth things over between two parties, if someone was actually calling someone else the alternate (SOB).

Picture it: Two individuals are not so happy with each other, and then one of them says, “boy, you are such a son of a bad word!” Can you just see the look on the other person’s face? Kind of like a dog who looks confused! 😂😂😂 They would probably forget, at that very moment, what they were arguing about!

The next time you feel the need to let someone have it, with not so nice words, give it a try! I bet before you know it, you both will be laughing and forgetting why your argument even warranted anger with bad words.

Just a thought, and certainly worth a try!

New World, New Way of Thinking, New Perspective!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – You Look Perfect

Wow…what a different World we live in!  We were living a normal life, then in a blink of an eye, we were living in isolation.  During this time, boy did most of us change.  Some went from wearing make-up to going “oh natural”, from dying our hair to letting the roots come on in, from getting dressed up every morning to wearing pj’s all day long and from getting used to going to the gym to (YIPES!) becoming a couch potato!

Through it all, “you all looked perfect!”  The true you came shining through!  Our personal canvas, our outer shell, was there in its vulnerable state; it was embraced.  At that very moment, we all realized we were “all” in this together and we were all experiencing being raw.  Vanity didn’t matter so much anymore.

Isn’t it amazing, when we really understand that we are all the same; how we look at ourselves in a different light.

Now, we are adding masks to our wardrobe.  Some are buying all the latest trends in masks – who would have thought?  Guess what?  You Look Perfect!

Wearing masks are now allowing us to all look at each other through the eyes.  The eyes into the soul!  Where we should have been looking from the start!  It isn’t about vanity; it is about seeing the soul in someone’s eyes.  Let the eyes speak to you!  You will see who you are meant to see.

Just remember, “You Look Perfect!”

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Creating A Sanctuary

Since we have been cleaning and cleaning our home, for what seems like an endless amount of time, product, and muscle, it is now time to focus on creating a sanctuary.  Change it up a bit!  Move some furniture around!  Create a different look!

When the virus broke out, we packed up all our dust collectors, our pictures, items we were not using, and left a blank canvas for a home.  We cleaned and cleaned some more, to make sure we were following the proper steps for fighting the virus.  I know it seems a little obsessive, but when dealing with something we have never dealt with before, we didn’t want to risk anything.  Proactive at its finest!

The benefit of this project of packing and cleaning, made us see just what we could live without and what we actually needed.  It was a gift to look at our home empty, except for the necessities.  We created an environment that could breathe better!  The energy flow in our home was calmer and flowed more freely.

As time has gone by, and we are getting accustomed to how we are now living in the New World and living in a new realization, it is now time to start to create our sanctuary.

We needed to take this time in our lives, to not put pressure on ourselves in trying to understand our New World.  We needed to take this time to not panic, but instead to learn how to accept.  We needed to take this time to look at our lives and see where our creativity could take us and how we could make a life where we were more self sustaining, more resourceful, and more reliant on our abilities that we had at one time taken for granted.

It is funny what you learn about yourself, when you just take that moment to sit back, breathe, and tap into “you”.  My abilities of writing, cooking, growing vegetables, making homemade products, for example, have now become my full-time career.  I found a way to turn what I do on a daily basis, into a career.  A career in sharing!  Sharing what I have learned on this new journey!  The Good Vibes Only Roadshow has now become something larger, but yet something more valuable – it has become life changing.

Our sanctuary is going to reflect all what we have learned in the past couple of months, it is going to reflect our connection with each other and our goals for the future.  Our sanctuary is not about material items, it will be more about peace, calm, and reflection.

I hope you take this time to reflect, change or rearrange, and create a space that is all about who you are now; who you have become.  Embrace this change; life has handed us out an experience to learn by, in more ways than one.  Make the best of your environment you are living in; let some light in, let the air flow, and feel the balance.  Calm your mind; calm your space!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Morning Person!

I’m a Morning Person!!!  There, I said it!!  Can’t help it!!  But, I love it!!

I love waking up knowing I get to make the best out of this day!  I get to smile at my family, I get to smile at my friends, and I get to smile with all of you!  Knowing I get to share my thoughts with all of you, makes me smile and brings me such happiness.  I am grateful to be able to share with you!

Our lives are not always easy, after all take a look at what we are currently dealing with!  But…I am grateful I am dealing with this pandemic with all of you, and that makes me smile even more; I wake up knowing we are all in this together and we are all going to make this World better together!  Big Smile!

I’m a Morning Person!!!  My life has not always been easy; some may think it has, but let me tell you, I have been through my own challenges.  I promised myself a long time ago, I would continue to wake up and smile and be that Morning Person!  I didn’t want the challenges in my life to win!  If I woke up crabby, then these challenges won, before the day even started!  Does that seem fair to you?  Why even get out of bed?

Becoming a Morning Person, has given “me” my own happiness.  Happiness I created for myself.  I will wake up energized and ready to create a joyful day!

I know, right now, it seems it is very difficult to smile, and I get it!  The way I look at it, is yes we are only human, and we will have our moments, we need to deal with so much loss right now, and how are we going to bounce back?  So many questions, with so little answers.  Strength!  Strength is the answer!  Strength in coming together!  Strength in knowing you are not alone!  Strength in knowing it is okay to smile and wake up ready to do something great in the times we are living in!

We need to smile!  We need to not only smile for ourselves, but for those who are hurting!  For those who are working the front lines!  For those who are dedicating their lives to saving ours!  For those who have lost loved ones!  For those who need comfort!  For those who feel lost!  They need your smiles right now!  By showing your smiles, they will not give up, but instead will feel refueled!  Your smile to them, say, “thank you”, says, “you are loved”, and says, “I’m here for you”.

Smile for EVERYONE!  We all need it right now!  Become that Morning Person!  Start your day wanting to give of yourself with a simple smile!  Being a Morning Person, will bring so much light to ones life, who desperately needs it right now!

Give the Gift of being a Morning Person!  Share kindness, share your gratitude, and share your strength!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Living in Harmony

I took a couple of days, with my family, to dive into organizing our new way of life; living in harmony!  I know when you think of living in harmony, the first thing a person thinks of is getting along with the other people you are living with!  Don’t get me wrong, we all get along quite well; what I’m referring to is what we all do in our lives, contributes to living in harmony.  The things that bring us more peace in our lives, brings more harmony!

With the World changing, we decided we needed to change along with it.  We are planning to change our entire lifestyle.  Some changes are going to be a bit on the drastic side, while others not so much.  The main thing, is we are making positive changes.

It would be easy to allow a negative cloud to continue to hang over us, during this time in our World, so we decided when given lemons, we are going to do our best to make the best pitcher of lemonade you could possibly taste!  Tasting Harmony!

When in Harmony, it tends to affect all the senses!  You see, taste, touch, hear, and smell so much better when you live your life in harmony.  When living in harmony, you are living a more balanced life.  When I think of harmony, I also think of rhythm!  So when you sway to music, you are balancing back and forth.

It doesn’t take much to create more harmony in your lives; it just takes a dedication to “not let the negative win”.  We are living in a period of, what I call, “the meantime”, and it is what you do with your time, is what matters.  The more positive the better!  The more creative the better!  The more loving the better!  The more kind the better!  The more happy the better!  The more smiles the better!

In planning our future, we set a goal to change our environment to one of complete calm.  Calm in our indoor and outdoor space, calm by becoming more self sustaining, calm in how we recycle more, calm by building or creating everything we need in our homes by using recycled products, calm in growing everything we need for food, calm by knowing we will have an environment to adopt and bring some loving fur babies into our lives again, and a calm in knowing we are doing all of this to help our World.

Living in Harmony became a very large picture for us, it wasn’t about just getting along with others, it was getting along more with our World, our Earth, and our Nature.  We saw how everything in our World “cleared up” since we have all been kept inside.  The pollution left the sky’s, the waters became clearer, the animals were able to roam freely, and the holes in the ozone were repairing itself.  Quite the concept!

What we are doing now, and what we plan to do in the future, will decide what type of World we will continue to live in.  I pick the continued healing of our World, our Earth and our Nature!  I pick the healing of everyone and everything whom call Earth their home!  I pick the healing of our minds, let us all look at our lives as precious; let us look at our lives as Harmony!

I’d like to continue Living in Harmony this way!  Let the Healing continue in our World!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – The Rebirth of the Hippie Movement

This would be the ultimate dream for me; witnessing the rebirth of the Hippie Movement!  Living in complete Peace!  Helping others from deep within our hearts!  Surviving on fruits, vegetables, nuts and grains!  Living in a time where no animals were hurt or killed!  Practicing alternative remedies “only” for our health!  Sharing the importance of kindness, love, acceptance, respect, and peace.  Recycling is a way of life!

A World where there are no wars, where everyone laughed instead of cried, and where everyone could feel safe.

A World where nature was praised, where if you built a home it was done by recycling as many products as possible.

A World where we shared freely without expectations.

A World where children could be children and not have to grow up so quick to understand that there are negatives in this current World we live in.

A World where our health was not harmed so easily; where we could cure all our ailments with the power of plants and herbs.

A World where we are not prescribed harmful drugs with side effects, but instead prescribed the antioxidants and alternative remedies.

A World where people preferred to walk more instead of drive to go just down the street.

A World where going barefoot is grounding to the soul, rather than looked at as dirty.

A World where anxieties did not exist!

A World where instead of shaking hands, we gave the sign of peace with our fingers in the air!

A World where meditation, acts of kindness, and gratitude are practiced in schools, in the workplace, and in homes.

A World where there is no reason for anger, but instead finding more reasons to share more love.

A World where a quality of life is pure and exists every single day!  Where our elderly can have a quality of life without paying thousands of dollars.  Where their quality is given more freely.

A World where we are all one!  A World where we all care about each other!

Guess what?  We may not be doing everything I’ve listed above, but we are slowing moving in that direction.  We have a lot to get through, but we are currently practicing these steps, or at least paying attention to wanting to do these steps, as one very large family!  Everyone on the planet are becoming one large hippie movement!  We are focusing on this every single day!  Ways we can, not only help our planet, but ways to help each other in a giving, peaceful, loving way!

I raise my peace sign to you!  I am happy to be able to witness this change in the World!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Family Plans!

Boy, my family and I have sure been doing some thinking!  We have made some family plans, which will change our future lifestyle, in a great way!

I’m a firm believer, things happen for a reason, whether we want them to or not.  We are meant to learn a valuable lesson when certain events happen in our lives.  There is no other answer for it!  We are here to learn!

As a family, we have decided to go back to the basics in life, with Internet of course!!  Baby steps!!  Right??

When we see how our lives, as we know it can be stopped so quickly, with no fault of our own, and how whether we wanted to or not, we had to adjust to a new way of life, made us do some serious thinking.  We wanted to have a life where we could at least limit the amount of worry.  To have a better sense of Peace.

Call it, a mix of Little House On The Prairie meets Technology!  Ya, I haven’t really figured out the mix just yet, but you get the picture!!

We have taken our lifestyle to a new level, and that is to build a homestead out of shipping containers, live self sustaining, and live off grid.  To be honest, we do not know when we are going to do this, but at least we are in the planning stages.  The main thing, is we are very excited to dive into this new way of life.  I can’t wait to focus on my career in writing, while living this new lifestyle.  I can visualize it, but I can’t wait to “feel” it!

We still have our plans, to one day, bring The Good Vibes Only Roadshow, literally “on the road”, to do our best to help others focus on positive perspectives in life.  In fact, last summer we test drove, living in a 5th wheel full-time to have a time of adjustment.  It went very well, so we know we could adjust to that lifestyle.  Happy Dance!!!

I suppose, during this time, our lives have become even more creative and that is something I look forward too every single day!  So whether or not, our plans happen now or a year down the road, they make me smile when I wake up each morning!

We are all here to learn, and we are trying to do just that; learn as we go!
