The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Bringing Family Together

Good Afternoon!

I know it’s been a while since I have shared with you any updates; I thought I would start with this one!  Bringing Family Together!

Over the summer, we were test driving our ambition in living in an RV full-time; it was a great experience.  It brought family and friends to our campsite to enjoy each others company.  Relations strengthened and it was a true blessing!

Since, we decided that we would save our RV for recreation for the next 5 years, instead of taking it on the road full-time.  We still have some wisdom to gain in this process, which we have no regrets in admitting.

We have moved into our home, where we have also started having family Sunday dinners again.  Bringing family together once a week, has been the best thing we started to do again.  Our family and friend relationships have grown and strengthened; it has been such a positive experience.

As I was thinking of this blog post, I was thinking of family members who may not see eye-to-eye and hence a wall goes up.  How easy would it be to simply put your differences aside and invite that family member over to share a meal with you.  You do not need to even talk about your differences, but simply share a meal with each other.  Meals are prepared with love and care; the same ingredients which go into relationships of all kinds.  A meal warms the heart!

After sharing a meal, you then feel a sense of satisfaction and comfort, and guess what?  You are enjoying this meal and feeling this way in the comfort of someone you didn’t see eye-to-eye with.  Changes the mood, and makes you think.  Sometimes, we get so upset at the small things, that we don’t take time to think that those small things that have upset us, are really not worth putting a wall between you and this person.  Share that meal!

As a family, we have found ourselves bonding even more with each other, by showing the love in a meal and sharing it with each other.  Please give this suggestion a little try, before you know it, no conversation is needed, there will just be a simple, “I’m sorry” where needed and the healing will begin.  A very simple approach, sometimes is all that is needed.

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Stand Up For What You Believe In!!

Stand Up For What You Believe In!!  Absolutely!!

In my lifetime, there have been many times, I’ve moved on from situations that were toxic; employment and relationships.  In doing so, some individuals would say, “you are running, instead of dealing”, or “now they are winning!”

This is not the case!  I simply Stood Up For What I Believed In and followed my “own” path!  We do not need to “settle” for a toxic environment; you can and you are allowed to follow your own path.  This path will bring you Peace, Happiness, and Comfort!

By standing up for what you believe in, you are caring about yourself and loving yourself, and truly that is all that matters!  Greatness will come to those who seek out what your soul is craving!  When you are happy in your life, then all those who you keep close to your heart, will be happy too!  To me, that is a great concept to keep in the back of your mind.

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – I Will Never Forget You!

I Will Never Forget You!

This phrase will be part of your life forever!  We meet people who, in their own way, allow us to learn.  It could have been a negative experience we learn from, but it can also be a positive one.  Regardless, we will never forget the people who come into our lives to help us grow.

If you have experienced a negative person who “made” you grow, after time passes, they have actually “helped” you to grow.  Without them, you could never learn valuable lessons.  I know it seems funny to acknowledge a negative person in your life who has changed you, but without them, you wouldn’t have learned.  I’m not saying, their negative actions were right, but instead, their actions were placed in your path for you to gain wisdom and become who you are today.

There are many people in my life, who I think of every now and then, whom I will never forget.  In fact, there are people in my life who have put me through test after test, and at times, I feel as if I would have liked to have erased them from my life completely, but instead I have learned a very valuable lesson in forgiveness.  I will never forget the challenges they have created for me, the test of trust, loyalty, and strength they put me through, but I’d like to think I came out of these tests better than I was before.  I am more proud of myself because of them.  I love myself more!

I have been through some wonderful experiences in my life and I have much gratitude for everything I’ve been through; the good, the bad, and the ugly situations made me who I am today and who I will continue to be!

I know, “I will never forget you”, will be in my future as well; I will harness every situation I go through in a positive way, knowing I will learn even more, I will love myself more each day, and I will be stronger.  Positive and/or negative situations will bring me more clarity about life and the journey I am on.

I wish you the same clarity, the same love for yourself, and the strength to forgive in order for you to move forward in a positive way!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – What Makes You Think?

Every single day, there seems to be a list a mile long, of what makes me think!  The “mile long list” makes me think of one thing that truly is important in life – Happiness!

If it isn’t something that someone says, watching the news on television, reading articles on social media, or hearing the “emergency alerts” go off on my cell phone with the latest missing child, there is always something to make me think.  I find myself thinking about, “what went wrong” in someone’s life, why is there so much negativity, and how can we change the World we live in.

At the end of the day, it is about the lack of happiness in their lives.  After listening to some of their stories; I think some more.

Life, sure knows ways of handing it to us!  It is seeking out the help we need to help us get back to Happiness!  I know at times, it seems hard to even believe that you could find happiness, but in all honesty, I think it is worth a try!

Even though, I’m just one person in this huge World, I’d like to try and help as many people as I possibly can!  Sometimes, it is just sharing a smile with someone hurting, give a shoulder to cry on, and an ear to listen – I’m willing to do this to help someone see there are people who genuinely care.

In, “what makes me think”, I think it is time to help one person at a time.

If you feel blessed, then become a blessing to someone else!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Because Of You!

I wanted to take a moment to thank each and every one of you; because of you, I am inspired, motivated, and more passionate about my “blogging” and “writing” lifestyle.

I have noticed, I have become more creative, more driven, and happy because of you!

Every morning when I wake up, I see your “follows”, your “likes” and your “comments”; it has been the best start to my day!

I appreciate my blog, but most importantly, I appreciate all of you.  Your kindness in following my blog has warmed my heart!

I will forever be grateful!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Love Is Love!

I never understood, why there is so much focus on “who” we fall in love with; as long as there is love, that’s all that should matter!

I’m not going to dive into the “religious” or “political” themes associated with this topic, but I will say this, “love thy neighbor” did not have any “except for…” attached to it!

I’m a firm believer in “live and let live”, as growing up, I never heard any “except for…” attached to that either!

In other words, as long as there is love, this is all that should matter!  Love yourself, love the person who warms your heart, love your friends, and simply love everyone who brings joy to your World!

Love should not be judged!  Regardless who we fall in love with; to be able to love is something we all strive for in our lives!  Let your heart tell you who you love; after all, love is not a crime, so don’t let others judge you for loving!

Love, love, and love some more!  Love With Your Heart and Soul!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – I Wonder How They Are Doing

How many times have you said to yourself, “I wonder how they are doing?”

What is stopping you from reaching out?  Did you end a friendship on a bad note?  Time heals!  If you are wondering how someone is doing, then pick up the phone!  Yes it is still nice to hear a voice!  Set aside the worry of whether or not your call would be accepted; make it and mend something that had possibly been broken.  Be the person who reaches out to let a person know they are thought of!  That is the Gift!

If they are in your mind, then they are in your heart!  Whether the relationship is good or bad, pick up that phone and let them know how important they are to you!  We need more of this in the World!  Take the time to reach out!

I also know at times, we wonder how our loved ones are doing, who have passed away!  It is nice to believe their spirits are still with us, so why not sit down and write a letter to them?  There is absolutely nothing wrong with writing a letter to someone we have lost; after all  some of the best music is written this way!  This is the best way to heal; you can say everything you need to say to your loved one.  You will receive the gift of their answer in life.  Believe me, when writing to a loved one who has passed away, you will start feeling comforted.  That is the real gift you will receive by getting your thoughts out on paper.

Regardless, if you are wondering how someone is doing, then reach out!  They may need you more than you know.  💖
