We all need something to believe in! Something to look forward to!
Passion is the key to both!
Since I’ve been at home now for over 2 weeks with my family, my list of goals has become quite long. Unfortunately, it takes complete devastation in the World for people to figure out that life is short and we need to “go for it” while we can.
I’ve never wanted something so much, as I do now! It isn’t just for me either, but for my family. I want more than ever for everyone to have a belief in something; a goal and put all your efforts in too it! Stay focused on the positive goals and believe in them!
Recently, you will find more and more people not taking for granted the little things anymore. Like someone making your coffee for you! Or doing your laundry! Or making your dinner! Or simply someone taking the time to truly care about your day!
Those are also things you will see people putting on their “something to believe in” list. For example, showing gratitude more each day to those who show care for us. There is nothing wrong with saying, more “thank you’s”.
It could look something like this:
- I believe if I show more gratitude to (*name) for constantly doing all those nice things for me on a daily basis, then they will feel happier and so will I.
Something so simple can bring so much more happiness to one’s life, by just saying “thank you”.
That is just an example of how easy it is to have something to believe in. You can believe in a small dream or a large dream, just as long as you are believing 😊😊
With Good Vibes Only – Something To Believe In!
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!
With Good Vibes Only – What Is Your Biggest Dream!
Along with all of you, I’ve taken the past 2 weeks to let everything sink in. The shock of how quick life can change is slowly going away, but it has left me with a sense of wanting to take this time to grow and to share with you what I’ve learned so far.
Side note: expect a lot of blog posts from me 😉
I’ve learned that creativity is more than just finding a hobby or project to do, but instead it is essential for mental health. Finding something that brings a smile to your face is very important; we cannot fall into the trap of fear.
Yes, things are very real out there, but if we listen to what has been suggested to us in staying in our home, then we will be doing our part in ridding our World of this virus. I feel it is a small sacrifice, in order to save our World.
Okay, so that’s all I want to say about the “v” word, it has temporarily taken over and I’m not going to allow it to do that, especially here on my blog! So, here is some creative positive options for you, that I’m also going to harness:
Cooking something NEW!
Changing Old Clothing into something fun (costume)
Writing a Novel
TV Series Marathon
Flipping Through an old magazine
Watching sports (all the sports channels are playing reruns)
Get outside in your yard (we still have snow, so we will have to wait another month or so)
Make a To Do list (for once everything gets back to normal)
Clean out the closets
Go through family albums and create a memory book
Clean up the garage
Get on-line and watch a free concert
Start talking to family and friends through FaceTime
Create a Favorites List
Plan a Passion List (my name for a bucket list)
Start a free online course
Start a group online and enjoy talking about a positive subject
This list is just a list of suggestions; whatever you do, please make sure you do it in your home or in your own yard.
You can also make arrangements with a friend to do all the above with someone on-line. It’s all about getting creative! Create an appointment with friends or family to join you in a project! Hey, great time to start a book club ❤❤
With Good Vibes Only – Full Of Creativity!!
There is no hiding it – I am a Rock n’ Roll Lover! Especially the 80’s Hair Bands! I’m not sure if it was the music, or the fact I wanted to have long hair and make up like they had, but regardless, those 80’s hair bands stole my heart!
My love for music has grown over the years; I love every genre of music. I appreciate the different feelings I experience while listening to such creativity.
Every single time I sit down to start writing, I must have music playing. Today, I have a “coffeehouse” playlist which is calming and interesting at the same time. The creativity behind this music, clearly is all about emotions. Music from their hearts!
I feel very fortunate to have all these artists creating music; brings me a sense of calm, encourages me with my own creativity, and puts a smile on my face. Every now and then, music inspires me to get up and dance! Not only am I exercising my mind with music, I am exercising my body.
I’d love for you to share with me your favorite playlists – what makes you happy in Music?
Gratitude all the way for music! From the 80’s hair bands to the calm of New Age Music, I love it all! Inspiration to start my day!
With Good Vibes Only – I’m Loving My Playlists!
Over the weekend, I turned 29 “yet” again! My husband and our daughter, surprised me by inviting my sister-in-law and my niece out to our camp for a BBQ! I was so happy to see them, as it had been a while!
One thing about our family, we love to sit around the kitchen table and talk! My sister-in-law has done extremely well on her weight loss journey, and in doing so, she found “dance” to be the best exercise for her! I agreed! If there is one form of exercise to do, I love to dance.
You can use absolutely, every muscle, you can move in any direction you want to, and doing all of this with a smile on your face!
When thinking about exercise, you think of lifting weights, using the treadmill, and other pieces of equipment, but when you think about it, although they are very good for you, you never seem to see anyone smiling while they are doing this. Keep in mind, I’m not degrading this form of exercise, as I do believe in it, but I also feel it is important to incorporate a form of exercise that brings a smile to your face.
When talking to my sister-in-law, she started to smile from ear to ear when she spoke about how she dances for exercise! Feel free to dance in your kitchen, or anywhere around the house! Try it out! You will feel free!
With Good Vibes Only – All I Want To Do Is Dance! The Best Exercise! 😊
