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 – 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!”

With Good Vibes only – You Are Perfect!

 

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!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – A Lesson Learned!

I learned a very valuable lesson not to long ago; never sway from your passions!  My passions in life are based on living a peaceful life, while helping others achieve a sense of peace as well.  Whether a sense of peace is found in my blog and social media posts, from the books I have written or from the gift I have as a Reiki Master, my passion in life is to help others find an avenue to bring inspiration and positive choices into their lives.

We all go through tests in our lives; some are there to help us along the right path, but then there are tests to make sure we do not sway from our passionate path in life.

I also believe in sharing my truths, as I believe if I can help just one person a day, then I’m doing what I have set out to do in my life.

Over the years, I’ve been tested in many areas of my life.  One thing I’ve learned is that these tests, if you let them move in and take up residence in your brain, are only there to create havoc and chaos, which then creates a wrath of anxiety.  Every single time, one of these tests show up, I will admit, they check into my brain for a brief moment, but then after reflecting on what is important in my life (my passions), it leaves with a sense of release.  It almost feels as though my Crown Chakra opens up and lets all the havoc and chaos particles float on up and out of my body.

I know that sounds deep, but it is the only way I can explain it.  There were tests I’ve gone through where I’ve kept everything to myself.  Not the best thing for me to do, but like I say, “I am human”.  I’ve felt the signs of negativity these tests have brought to me, so I have learned to cry through them.  A great release for me at times!  I’ve said it before, and I will say it again, “there is nothing wrong with crying”.

This was an awakening for me!  I needed to stay true to my passions within me!  Although, these tests were job opportunities which I was approached with, they just truly weren’t for me.  I had considered them, as I thought it would be an opportunity to again help, but something was telling me it just wasn’t the right thing for me to do.  Intuition at its finest I suppose; I was listening to my gut feeling and staying true to my passions.

My passions pull at my heart!  They are mine!  They fuel me every single day!  They bring me joy!  They bring me peace!

I only hope you all can do the same!  Stay true to who you are and what brings you a sense of passion in your lives!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – 50 and Fabulous!

Turning 50 last year was life changing in such a positive way!  50 is Fabulous!

Here is a little timeline I’d like to share with you!

When I graduated from high school at 18 years old, I had a “moment”; it was time to think about what I wanted to do.

When I turned 20 I was married to my first husband.

When I turned 23 I gave birth to my daughter and 5 weeks later found myself sitting in the lawyer’s office writing up a Separation Agreement between my now ex-husband and myself.  At that time, I had another “moment” on where I wanted my life to go.

When I turned 30, I was living life as a single mother and had another “moment”; this moment was a bit more shocking, as I felt I was 30 years old and I “needed” to make something out of myself.  Oh my, the first experience with panic and anxiety!  Yipes!  I put so much pressure on myself and felt I needed to be in a rush to figure everything out about Life!

When I was 34 – 38, I found myself caring for both my parents with Cancer; with the loss of my parents, this gave me the “moment” of just how precious life truly is, and how it does come full circle – to also enjoy each day!

When I turned 38, I met and married my husband; the only thing I wished for at that time was how I wished I would have met my new husband earlier.  We have been going strong for 13 years!

When I turned 40, I had the first best “moment” – I no longer sweat the small stuff.  Life seemed to be more calmer, my reactions were based on the positive rather than stressing over such little things.  I loved my 40’s!

When 50 was just around the corner, I will admit, I thought to myself, “OMG!  This can’t be right!”

Then it happened!  I turned 50!  What a fabulous feeling!  I had my “moment” of clarity; I was going to make the best out of every single day and nothing was going to change my mindset!  My life became my dream!  Everything I wanted to do for myself, was staring right at me!  I went for it!  I love being 50 years old!  I have the wisdom which is needed for this time in my life; I have gratitude, I have everything in my mind, heart, and soul, that I was wishing for 30 years ago, but now I know “why” I needed to wait to receive this wisdom!

50 is Fabulous!  50 is Fabulous with your life experiences!  50 is Fabulous and is only a number – to be honest, I feel 29 years old with 21 years experience!!

With Good Vibes Only – 50 and Fabulous!!

 

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Menopause – It’s Not Such A Bad Word!

Menopause!  It really isn’t such a bad word!

I used to, literally, fear Menopause!  And then it happened!  What was I so worried about?  When I was younger, I didn’t have the mindset I have today – hence the need to panic over Menopause.  Now, however, I have embraced this time in my life and I am finding the laughter and the gift of this new chapter.

There is so much to look forward to in entering Menopause.  Aside from the obvious changes in our body, there are the emotional changes which have such a bad stereotype to them.  Just so you know, some look at menopause as women losing their minds while going through this new stage, and tend to refer to it as “mentalpause”, but to be honest, when I hear “mentalpause” as a reference, I say, “you know what?  You are RIGHT!”

After the shock wears off of the faces of those referring to menopause as mentalpause, I get the last laugh 😂😂  You see, to me, the phrase “mentalpause” means, I have welcomed the right to pause at anything that can affect me either emotionally, mentally, or physically in a negative way.  If I feel, something or someone is trying to manipulate me in these ways, then I can take the “pause” and make my choice to change the situation.

With Menopause, we have welcomed the right to take our control back!!  This is our time!  New chapter!

This perspective has also allowed me to laugh more when others joke about Menopause; lets face it, it can be a challenging time, but it can also be a very fun time!  It happens to every woman, so why fight it, why worry about it, why find the negative in it – EMBRACE IT!!

There is so much humor in Menopause!  For example, living in Northern Ontario, where I might add, is still snowing, I can pray for a Hot Flash and actually get one within a split second of that prayer, to melt the ice!  How about that for a Super Power!!  😉

I can also scare away a potential threat with just the blood-shot look in my eyes!  That’s from the lack of sleep by the way! 😉

On a serious note, whether it is referred to as Menopause or Mentalpause, I have taken my “pause” and have honored this new chapter in my life!   We don’t need to be the stereotype, we can be something better!
