The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – All I Want To Do Is Dance! The Best Exercise!

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!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Company is Coming

A couple of years ago, I decided to have special “Sunday Dinners” for our family;  every Sunday we would focus on a different country.

Not only would we cook food from this country, but we would have the music playing and later watch a movie from this country or based on this country.

For example, when it was Italian Night, I cooked Italian Wedding Soup, made Tortellini Alfredo, and we had Tiramisu for dessert. You could hear “Italian Love Songs” by Dean Martin playing, as well, we watched Under The Tuscan Sun!  We became creative with Sunday Dinner.

I decided we, as a family, needed to introduce some culture into Sunday Dinners; our kids, who are in their 20’s, looked forward to these dinners, and would actually ask all week, “what country are we celebrating this Sunday?”

Sunday dinners became a “celebration!”

Life gets busy, and we would miss the odd Sunday, but I would love to start getting back on track with our Sunday Country Celebrations!  They were a lot of fun and this also allowed us to connect more.  In a way, it was an escape to enjoy Gifts from another Country without physically being there.

I would like to think, if everyone were to venture into Celebrating Countries with their families during a dinner, then we would have more of an understanding for them, which then brings on more appreciation!

Just a thought!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Do You Have Your Party Pants On?

When you wake up each day, tell yourself this, “Life is a Party!”  I mean this statement, as life should be celebrated every single day!

Do You Have Your Party Pants On?  Are You Ready For This Perspective?

I am!!!

I have a little ritual I do in the morning – are you ready for this?  I smile at myself in the mirror, give myself a wink, and shake it like Elvis!  You read that right!  I dance around and get my party pants on!  I’m celebrating everything about each day!

Start your day off with GRATITUDE!  Get into your rhythm!  Smile at the World!  Give it a Wink!  Why Not?  What have your really got to lose by doing this?  If anything, you will gain some giggles, which is something wonderful!

Could you imagine if everyone were to do this at the exact same time, every single day?  Think of the sounds, think of how different people would look when you see them as you are walking into work?  Visualize this process; would the World look different?  I know when I visualize this, it makes me smile and I actually giggle inside.  I feel instant comfort when I visualize the World starting their days off with their party pants on!

Life is meant to be celebrated!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – A Special Letter

I’ve been doing some Spring cleaning lately; while going through some old boxes, I came across a very special letter from my Uncle which was sent to me 16 years ago.  My Uncle  has since passed away.

He loved writing poetry and short stories; he sent this letter to me in hopes I could possibly turn his poem into a song.  I had written a couple of songs during this time;  I suppose I was just trying to find my creative edge, he encouraged me and I was grateful.

Keeping in mind, my Uncle comes from an older generation who had the privilege of witnessing all sorts of changes this World has gone through.  Once he retired, he chose to live a very quiet life, so when he wrote this letter to me, his references are from a very different time.

I’d like to share with you his poem; I wasn’t able to turn this poem into a song while he was here with us, but perhaps I can dedicate this post to him and honor his “writing” and “creativity” using The Good Vibes Only Roadshow platform.  There is a message in his writing.

Funny Paper World

It’s a Funny Paper World

The one that we live in,

It’s a Funny Paper World

A World so full of sin

Spaceships in the air

Satellites in Outer Space

Our leaders are pulling hair

God help the Human Race

Atari games for our children

and porno shows at night

Makes a person sort of wonder

Are we wrong or are we right

It’s a Funny Paper World

The one that we live in,

It’s a Funny Paper World

A World so full of sin


We lost all sense of morals

We traveled fast to space

In this funny paper World

God help the human race


The message:  I took the time to read his poem/song, and I can’t help but think of how, at his age, his generation, we shared one major thing in common – he was wanting a different World to live in.

It just goes to show you, we all want the same thing in our lives – Peace, Happiness, Joy, Respect, and much more!

Times have changed, but yet times have remained the same in certain areas.

With Good Vibes Only I Wish You Peace 😊


The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Event Planning Update!

We are in the process of planning our 2024 North American Roadshow; it seems like a long ways away, but in reality it isn’t!  When you think about how the Olympics are planned out, and then how soon they show up, it is crazy!

Most of my career has had a component of event planning included in my positions which I held, which I absolutely loved!  I couldn’t wait for the next event to come up so I could get my hands dirty in the planning stages!  I feel like this all over again!

This is the largest event I’ve ever planned, but the difference in the events I planned before, compared to our North American Roadshow Tour, is I’m putting a bit more “passion” into it.  I’ve always planned events from the heart, but our event is based on our passions in life which brings a lot of smiles!  That is for sure!

Mapping out cities, towns, smaller communities, venues, locations to stay (RV parks), and pretty much all the logistics, is where we are at currently.  Being the Free Spirit that I am, I can’t wait to arrive at RV parks (their event rooms), vintage markets, small book stores, coffee shops, and participating in the goodness of these environments!  It is important for me to capture the intimacy of these locations; this is what will be fueling my creativity for documenting our journey for a new “The Good Vibes Only Roadshow” book!!

This event is going to be a lengthy one, as we feel it is important to visit as many locations as possible; who knows maybe we can expand our tour into an endless Tour!  Now that would be AWESOME!!

Thank you so much for following my blog, it means the World to me!  

With Good Vibes Only, Gratitude, and Peace!


The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Inspired By Queen

I, along with many of you, have had the privilege of watching the new movie, Bohemian Rhapsody.  I must admit, it has become one of the most inspiring movies I’ve watched.

The most important thing I learned from this movie, was that no matter the criticism, the challenges, or the people who do not understand and disapprove, keep strong in your convictions and do what makes you happy.

What a Gift!

Queen not only showed me how to stick to what is important in my life, but it showed me the beauty of sticking together no matter what the challenges.  Sometimes it is easy to walk away, as Freddie did in this movie (temporarily), but the key here is that he came back to loyalty.  We will always experience temptations of “something is better out there”, but if we stay true to our loyalties then we will succeed in our hearts.

I can honestly say, I am in love with this movie for the messages it sent to me.  Never judge a book by its cover, always be open to someone’s suggestions (as you just never know), and love with your heart!  Be who you are meant to be without worrying about judgement.

Creativity was key for me in this movie; Queen looked outside of the box, even though many criticized their ideas.  They stayed true to their gift of creativity and look how big Queen became!  Everyone’s gifts are different, we cannot judge!  These are gifts the entire World has been given;  the gift of creativity in music!

I will forever be grateful for Queen, for Bohemian Rhapsody, for musical talent, for creativity and for all the inspiration this has left with me.

With Good Vibes Only, I Wish You Inspiration, Love, and Creativity!
