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 – This Mama Dances! What Music Are You Listening Too?

In our household, we always have music on during the day; to be honest, lately, it has helped to pass the time with being at home full-time. Music has been our distraction, our stress reliever, and our exercise. We DANCE!!

When I wake up every morning, I can’t wait to put the music on! Generally, I start with some soothing Reiki music to start my morning off, while I am catching up on messages and having my first coffee. Breaks me in too the day, in a calming way.

Then it happens! I put on a little Good Vibes or Reggae and let the beat get a hold of my soul! In fact, as I’m typing this post, I am listening to Reggae Classics on Spotify; what a great selection of music.

Every single day, the music will differ; as we can’t forget the good old 80’s hair bands and their rock music. Now, I put on AC/DC, Queen, Poison, Def Leppard, and Aerosmith when I’m writing Fiction!

During all of this, I will dance and enjoy! I let the music help me to escape into a World where I’ve never been; it could be a World I will write about, but it is a World of pure bliss. I take my bliss and I will dance into the kitchen to cook dinner, I will take my bliss and sway back and forth while making my bed, and I will take my bliss and let all my creativity out!

It is like painting on a canvas for me, without the paint or the canvas. I feel the strokes of the paint brush touching the canvas in the beat of the music. I know I sound like a Free Spirit Hippie; I guess my true self comes out through music.

My question to you is this:

What music are you listening too? What music brings you to this blissful place? What song “can’t” you get out of your head? What music makes you dance?

We need to share 😀😀 we may be helping someone find the harmony in music and dance!

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 – Shopping Online

I’ll be honest with you, I’ve done some online shopping in my life, but for the most part, I’ve been one to go out and do my shopping, especially for food.  However, times are changing and wouldn’t you know it, the online shopping World is now becoming our new daily normal.

I know you’ve heard me say, “book an appointment with yourself”, well at that time, I was referring to booking an appointment with yourself to do some self-wellness activity.  Who would of thought I would be saying, “book an appointment with yourself to do some daily online shopping” – New World!!

I suppose I took for granted that you were already doing at least some online shopping.

I have been researching products, deliveries, costs, and trying to get into a system where our family does not have to leave our home so much.  I’m happy to announce, after 4 solid days of research and organization, our family is now 100% online (delivery) and online (curbside) for every one of our needs.

Feels good to know by doing so, we have created more space in the grocery stores/essential stores for those who do not have access to online shopping

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!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – How Are You Doing?

I won’t lie, the past month has been quite the year!!!  How are you all doing?

I feel it is very important to check in with each other, more now than ever.  Opening up the lines of communication, opening up your heart, and just saying a great big, “Hello!  How are you doing?”

I have been doing a whole lot of thinking these days!  I must tell you, I am learning quite a bit about life and how grateful I am for everyone in my life.  I’m not just grateful for my family and friends, but I find myself grateful for absolutely everyone on this planet!

I am grateful for the picture of the little kids coloring pictures for our healthcare workers.  I am grateful for the news broadcasters who are also risking their lives to protect us with the latest news.  I am grateful for all emergency crews, for grocery store clerks, for pharmacists providing medicine to those in need, for our sanitation crews still picking up our garbage, recycling and composting.  I am grateful for delivery companies, truck drivers bringing supplies to our stores, and for post office employees still delivering mail.  I am grateful for our Governments who are trying desperately to work together with Peace, health, and our futures in mind.  It can’t be an easy job; our patience is required while they try to do the best for us.

I am extremely grateful for social media and the internet!  Without it we wouldn’t be able to help each other and lift each other up through these different times.  I would be lost without all of you!  I am so grateful to be able to talk to you all, and will forever be grateful for this platform.

I am grateful to have Facebook!  I can see my family who do not live with us.  I can still tell them I love them!  I can still see my friends and support their hopes for a better tomorrow.  I can support my followers and provide them with as much inspiration as I can, knowing that if I help just one person a day, then I’m doing my part in this World!

There are so many more people I am grateful for, the list is endless, but I must say, I am very grateful for the pictures of pets and animals.  They have no idea what is going on, but their images bring so much comfort to many.

I wake up each day, hoping and praying that everyone is doing well, they are safe, and they are remaining in their homes to remain healthy.

This is how I am doing in my life; how are you doing?

I want to hear you, I want you to use your voice and express yourself, and I want you to do this knowing you are safe to wear your heart on your sleeve.  You will be heard!  Share your days, your hopes and your dreams.

I wish you all comfort ❤

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Summer’s Cozy Corner – An Introverts Perspective

We have a new addition to tell you about!

Summer’s Cozy Corner

This site is focused on bringing great “lifestyle” information to you, based on an introverts perspective.  We have had a lot of fun putting this together and hope that you will enjoy, Summer’s Cozy Corner!

ABOUT SUMMER’S COZY CORNER – http://www.summerscozycorner.com

 

I am introverted. If you meet me in person, I may offer a small wave as a “hello” or “nice to meet you”. At the same time my mind is constantly filled with ideas and concepts that I can’t get out fast enough. I’ve always felt that I had so much to say but could never spit it out properly.

Especially in writing, it is not my forte. It has taken me a long time to figure out how to go about this blog. Probably about 5 years I’d say. I’d have an outburst of ideas and simultaneously get overwhelmed trying to put them in order so that it would make sense. Frustration would ensue and I would step away from it for months. I’ve apparently had a breakthrough, finally!!

I have many interests in my life that I am equally passionate about. I could not just pick one focus. I’ve dubbed this the Cozy Corner because one constant in my world is that I always seek comfort. In one way or another. Whether it’s food, shopping, rearranging the house, I am doing these things simply to feel better. It works every time, so why not talk about it full time!

Usually it takes a spark of inspiration to get the ball rolling. Once it does get going, I could go on for hours. Long story short, in telling my stories, I hope that they spark an inspiration in your world.

I will be publishing my first book – Love Grandma by Summer’s Cozy Corner.  I hope you will all follow my site, as I will be sharing some of my Grandma’s favorite recipes that made her family feel full of love!

Please feel free to follow Summer’s Cozy Corner at http://www.summerscozycorner.com and share with all your friends, family, and followers.

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – We Are Making History! We Are All In This Together!

Facebook asks me every morning, “What’s on my mind?”
Then it hit me like a Mack Truck!
AT THE MOMENT, WE ARE ALL MAKING HISTORY!
The World has finally all come together as ONE and are working as a Team with nothing but care and compassion in their Hearts
The enemy in this case is invisible and we NEED each other to fight it off!  In my eyes, this is World War III and we are not fighting each other.
We truly are ONE!
The thought that we are doing this brought tears to my eyes.  The thought of what it took to bring us all together, made me cry even more, but the reality of it is that we were not fighting each other to get us to this point.
It is possible to live in Peace, to actually love each other enough (as we are doing now) to be kind to everyone, and it is possible to live a life where we do not cause pain to another human being or animal!
We are living the proof right now, that we can continue doing so!  Life is precious!
With Good Vibes Only – We Are Making History!  We Are All In This Together!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – What Is Great About Today?

What is great about today?  I know it seems odd to try and think of positive things at this time, but we still need to look after our mental health.  We still need to be able to give a smile to everyone who is working hard to look after us; we need to be able to show gratitude and kindness and in order to do so, we need to think positive.  This is the least we can do to those sacrificing themselves.

When I go to the grocery store to buy my essentials, I am going to think of my following list that will bring a smile to my face, which will then “hopefully” bring a smile to the grocery store clerk and those working to provide for us.  When I see a healthcare worker, I will smile so that they know they are appreciated.  When I see anyone who is working in their essential job, they will get a huge, “thank you” for what they are doing.

Here is my list:

MUSIC!!!

That pretty much sums it up 😉😉 Seriously, there is so much more I could add to this list, but I wanted to start with the importance of MUSIC!  It can literally turn a bad mood right around, get you up dancing, and keeping you smiling inside and out!  For me, I’m dancing in my seat while I’m typing this 😉😉 MUSIC has contributed to a great day!

THE SNOW IS FINALLY MELTING!!

One more great thing to add to my list of what is great about today!  No more white stuff, we can now start to see the grass underneath.

TEMPERATURES ARE RISING!!

This is such a great sign!  The warmer it gets, the better it will be for everyone!  From what I have read, and whether or not, it is correct, it is giving me something to look forward too, but this virus (which I refer to as the “v” word) does not like heat!  So I’m praying for a heatwave!

With these three things in mind, I have set the tone for a positive day!

Before you go out for your essentials, please set the tone for a positive day in your mind; you will then spread this “contagious” vibe and those you see will be able to smile again!

Every little bit helps!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – What Is Your Biggest Dream!

I’ve had a lot of time to think over the past two weeks, and to be honest with you, it is funny how just two weeks can change my entire perspective of my hopes and dreams.

One of my dreams in life is, I’ve always wanted to inspire and to encourage others to find the “positive” in life.  I suppose, watching Oprah, Ellen, and reading a truck load of self-help books, has fueled me with the passion to help others find their own outlet to happiness.

Personally, I feel it takes not just a Village to help others who are struggling, but it takes an entire World to stay on the positive track.

My dreams in life, have changed.  They have changed for the better, as if they are now dreams which are there because of wisdom.  There is so much I’d like to do, and so many I’d like to help.  Over the next while, I will be writing my “dream” list and making sure, that I check off one thing at a time each and every single day.

My dreams are to write more books, to blog more inspiring posts, to eventually travel with the Good Vibes Only Roadshow and meet people who need to share their own story.  My dreams are endless, but they are changing to become more realistic.

We all have dreams; what are some of yours?  Don’t let fear stop you from dreaming.

This experience we are all going through is “temporary”; keep planning, keep dreaming, and keep focusing on a brighter day!
