The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Stress and Your Mental Health!

STOP!!!  How many times have you said that in your lifetime, when everything was getting to be too much?  In case you are wondering, it is okay to do so!  Yell it out loud!  You are releasing the hold stress can have on you and your mental health!

When you are feeling the weight of stress, I encourage you to yell and scream, to release the grip!  Once you do this, let the healing begin!😊

When we look at our lives, whether or not it is the people in our lives or our career for example, and they are causing us stress, it is okay to take a much needed break to heal yourself.  We are under the impression, we need to “put up with” the toxic grip people and careers can place on us; NOT TRUE!!  You have a life too!  Take control, say, “STOP!” and take time for you!

For on the job stress, I’d like you to think about this for just a minute – whether it is a person or your career, where is it written you need to be placed under so much stress you can’t breathe, for the positive gain for them?

Once you are done thinking about that; think about this!!  In the work place, it has become a practice for employees to take “health and safety”, “workplace harassment”, and “other miscellaneous, on the job related, get a long with others, etc.” courses as part of the “have too” in order to be employed!  They have done their job in having you take these prerequisites, now take what you have learned from those and let it work for you!

You have more support than you think!

I say, “STOP! To anything that places an “unnecessary” grip on our stress levels!  Enough already!  Live, Love, and Laugh your way through anything or anyone who crosses your path with ill-intentions!  Take hold of your life!  You have options out there!

Live the life you are passionate about!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – My Eyes Are Open

The one thing I have learned in my 50 years; the beauty of Wisdom should be celebrated!  My Eyes Are Open!

I look at the age of 50, not in being old, but instead of having more experience in life to be comfortable with the Wisdom I have gained.  My Eyes Are Open!

Every single day, there is always someone who makes me shake my head at how they respond in such a negative way; by watching these people gives me even more Wisdom. My Eyes Are Open!

I see a little child who has more common sense than some people out there, who like to think they “know it all”.  I gain Wisdom from this little soul.  My Eyes Are Open!

I watch, I listen, I learn, and I pay attention to my surroundings; I gain more Wisdom.  My Eyes Are Open!

My heart continues to feel every emotion = My Eyes Are Open!

You don’t need to see in order to have your eyes open; listen to your heart!  Listen to your heart; you will gain Wisdom and your eyes will be opened!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Life’s Daily Menu

Life’s Daily Menu consists of many things; work, family, friends, hobbies, goals, responsibilities, finances, etc!  Are you starting to feel full yet?

I decided to become creative with my life; I created a “menu” for myself, so that my days became more enjoyable, more fun, and just interesting!  Just like looking at a menu in a restaurant!  What stands out, what draws my attention, and what will make my life more fulfilled!

When I started using this approach, and when the odd negative situation would arise, I would, literally “sweeten” it up!  Just like eating food that isn’t so appealing; for me anything that makes my lips pucker, needs a little sweetener!

Here is an example:

When approached by a person who is angry, I would stop, “invite” them to sit down, smile at them, and hear them out.  In a way, it is just like letting a fine wine age, or if you are a meat lover, letting it marinate.  You are providing this beverage or food, time to “do its thing” in order to get better!  Just like anyone who needs to vent; they need to say what they need to, in order to feel better.  You are giving this person their uninterrupted “time” to do so!

I feel, everyone needs their own Daily Menu!  Create your menu that appeals to you, include items that make you happy, healthy, and brings you peace!  Get creative with Life!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Rehab For Stress

Just a thought for the day…

As I’ve been creating my blog posts, the thought of creating a “rehab for stress” swirled around in my mind.

When stress takes over our lives, “some” dive into drugs and alcohol to cope.  Rehab for drugs and alcohol have been very popular due to the increase in life struggles, stress on the job, and in general, drug and alcohol use.  I often wondered, why a Spa seemed to be the only alternative for stress and relaxation; why not a Rehab for Stress!  Why not have an option for people to attend a rehab for stress before the drugs and alcohol kick in?

I feel it is so important to learn more about coping with stress in a healthy way, rather than “thinking” drugs and alcohol are the only alternative.  Some people have so much stress, they could use a place to go to, to not only rejuvenate, but learn how to cope at the same time.

We see commercials on television for rehab centers helping people with addictions, but you never seem them for learning to cope with stress.  At least, we don’t where we live!  If they do exist, then they definitely need more “air time” on television!!

Yes, I know part of the rehab for drug and alcohol use has a “coping with stress” component, but I would like to think having a rehab that is 100% based on helping people to cope with stress who “are not” on drugs or alcohol would be beneficial.  Why does a person have to have addictions to enter a rehab to help them deal with their lives?

Rehabilitate your life and your patterns to help deal with stress!

I like to look outside the box and see where we can really help people deal with their challenges, before it is too late.  More options, the better!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Pink Nails

It is funny, what stands out about a person in your mind, after they are gone.

My Mom and her Pink Nails!  I still remember the name of the nail polish; Windsor by Revlon!

In thinking about my Mom, I think about our own children.  Although, they are all in their 20’s now, every chance I get, I remind them how important it is to take note of all the things we may take for granted – even the shape of nails.

This post is about, “living life with no regrets”; take note of everything about the ones you love.

Eventually, and unfortunately, we will all have to say goodbye to those we love; the gift is remembering everything about them.  The sound of their voice, their favorite nail polish color, their favorite foods, their hobbies, and the sound of their laugh.

By taking note of all their qualities, you will be able to share all your memories and characteristics to the future generations of your family.  These things will be so important in teaching new generations about life and where they came from; even the color of someone’s nail polish.

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Soul Brothers

I’d like to take a moment to dedicate this post to my husband and his Baseball Teams.

13 years ago, when our family moved to Sudbury, Ontario, where my husband is from, I was introduced to his love of baseball.  With this love for baseball, came the love for his Team.  I, myself, have played on many teams, and I understand the bond you make with your teammates.  To be honest, you are creating lifelong bonds with each other.  Created based on unconditional support for each other.

I refer to his teammates as my husband’s “soul brothers”.  For the most part, they have become more than just teammates; they are there supporting each others families as well.

For example, the other day, I received a beautiful message from one of my husband’s, “soul brothers”, complimenting me on my two books I’ve written, “In My Closet” and “Lost Soul Obsession”.  The compliment came, out of the blue, as he decided to sit down and read my books.  I wasn’t expecting this message; it warmed my heart and made me think about how important it is to embrace a Team.

I am grateful to be able to see my husband create such fantastic bonds with these men; these men have embraced not only my husband but our family, as well.

There is no other way to express the type of bonds these men have created, other than, “soul brothers”.

When you find, friends in your life who are there for you no matter what, you hang on to them.  Each life will have their own ups and downs, but it is the unconditional support you have created with each other, that will not only help each other through the challenging times, but will extend to help each others families.

Again, I am so grateful to be able to witness such friendships!

If your significant other has a team they belong too, there is nothing wrong with embracing them as well.  You will find comfort, lots of laughter, and support in doing so!

Teammates + Teamwork = A Quality of Life!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – You Know You Are On The Right Path When!

You know you are on the right path when, you feel so much love for what you are doing, it almost aches!  Aches in a good way!  Aches so much, you are wanting more!  The Ache becomes a yearning!  You cannot get enough of what you are doing!  Then you know you are on the right path!

A good friend of mine, encouraged me to go on The Camino!  I haven’t, as of yet, however, it is on my Passion List!  He suggested, once someone goes on the Camino, you will know your calling and just what path in life you are meant to go on.  Although, I have yet to make it to walk The Camino; I created my own form of Camino.

The Camino I have is a path I follow in my mind; the art of creative visualization.  By creating my path in life in my mind, it has allowed me to have a constant focus on what I am passionate about.  I know, one day, when I am walking The Camino, I will have a more spiritual awakening, but first I felt it was important to know in my mind, my passions in life.  I feel, by having an understanding of who I am and what I am all about, will only make for a more passionate awakening for me. Not everyone is the same, but for me, this is part of my path.

When you know you are on the right path, you don’t need to question this feeling of being at Home.  All you need to do is accept this Gift, embrace the warmth it brings to your life, and cherish every minute!

You will feel that tug in your heart!  You can’t stop smiling!  You will want to laugh out loud, and you will want to hug everyone!  The minute you know you are on “your” right path!  Embrace and Love Who You Will Become On Your Very Own Path!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – How To Remain Calm

I was put to the test this morning; how was I going to remain calm!

I was showing a new tenant to their apartment; we got on the elevator to come downstairs after their walk-through and then it happened!

It was obviously going to happen at some point; yes, we were stuck in the elevator at our apartment building!  It (the elevator) decided it was Monday and was not in the mood to work I guess!  Just so happens, it didn’t wait until we could get off to stop working!  Fun Times!

For the most part, I would have freaked out, as to be honest, this is not one of the things on my “passion” list to look forward too!  However, once I saw our new tenant “grab” and white knuckled the bar in the elevator, I knew I had to remain calm for her.  Funny, how when push comes to shove, we can stand up to face our own fears.

We started chatting about the excitement of living in her new place, how she was going to decorate, and how many people she was going to meet.  We were only stuck for approximately 5 minutes, but it seemed like 5 hours.  By focusing on something positive, made her smile and before you knew it, her grasp on the bars was loosened, her breathing was slower and then, wouldn’t you know it, the doors opened and we were back in the Lobby.

The Power of Positive Thoughts and Comments!  They are not just words!  They help when you are faced with a fear, they help others cope in their difficult times, and they help you face each day!  They help you to breathe!
