The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – TGIF Every Day!

This is just a little thought that crossed my mind this Friday morning:

Animals, babies, infants, and toddlers are the only Gifts in this World who do not understand the concept of, “TGIF!”  For me, I am grateful they don’t!

Could you imagine, if animals, babies, infants, and toddlers could understand TGIF, just how much faster their lives would seem to fly by?  It seems, we are always in a rush for Friday to come around, then when it does, we say to ourselves, “boy, that week just flew by!”

Enjoy each and every single day of your life, as if it were, “TGIF!” I have a feeling, if you were to celebrate every day this way, then you won’t feel like life is “passing” you by!

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 -The Administrative Team! They Are Assets!

Before you know it, April 24th will be here and it will be Administrative Professionals Day!

I spent 30 years of my career in this field, and I’ve seen and heard it all.  I’ve even been told, Administrative workers are liabilities to company’s, as they don’t bring in money to the company.  CAN YOU BELIEVE IT!  They only do the work, prepare the documents you need to bring in money, and assist in the Sales and Marketing department where money is generated from!  They support everyone from the President of the company, to entire departments, they even answer the calls so that you can create business partnerships.  After all, who is the first voice you hear when you call a company?  The Receptionist who is part of the Administrative Team!

April 24th – Administrative Professionals Day does not mean you have to spend money on your administrative employee to show them you appreciate them; really all you need to do is take as little as 5 minutes “telling” them just how much they are appreciated.  You will be amazed at how far this compliment will go!

Administrative Professionals have lives just like the Executive!  They have family stresses, financial stress, and relationship stress, just like everyone else.  The only difference is that they are trained to “not bring their personal life to work”,  no matter how hard it may be for them.  They put you (the Executive) first!  This is what they are trained to do!  Not only do they manage your work life, but at times, they are also expected to manage areas in the Executive’s personal life as well, for example buying gifts for their families.

Administrative Professionals go beyond what is expected of them, they sacrifice hours with their own families to make sure the company they work for are maintaining their own schedules.

Please remember, on this Administrative Professionals Day, a compliment can go a long way!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Gridlock – Why Are You Honking Your Horn?

In managing a very large apartment building, there are a variety of personalities.  The other day, I found myself being “put on the spot in a degrading way based on ASSUMPTION”, by someone who lives a very angry life.  In fact, he needs emotional healing.   Until, he acknowledges where his anger is “really” stemming from and figures it out, he will continue to be this way, which is unfortunate, but we all learn in our own time.  In the meantime, I will remain compassionate towards his issues, as I do daily.

HOWEVER!!  During this, unnecessary degrading expedition he was on, I found myself thinking about the GRIDLOCK we experienced on our holiday last month in Toronto, Ontario.  All we could hear were horns honking!  I thought to myself, “what is the point in honking your horn, when the Police have the intersection blocked off and are rerouting cars in a different direction, plus all vehicles were at a standstill for a very long time.”  Seriously, what I would have done to have a horn to honk during the degrading expedition!!

So I found some humor to get me through his vent session!  We all need to vent every now and then, but sometimes, we need to also remind ourselves, our problems are not always everyone else’s fault!

One thing I will always remind people of, is when you assume, for the most part you will be 100% wrong!  Before you go off on a tangent with an assumption, I feel the relationship which this could be affecting deserves communication first.  A question and answer session!

Assumption = GRIDLOCK!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – When The Time Is Right!

When the time is right, it will present itself!

I used to think, if I pushed and pushed, then I could force, “when the time is right!”  Not the case!  When the time is right, you will see the signs!  You will feel it in your heart, you will literally see signs (could be on TV, could be in a conversation, or even from a complete stranger), and your soul will be speaking to you!  This is when you need to listen!

With regards to seeing the signs, for example, if you are wanting a new career, you will see the following:

  1. You could pick up a magazine and start reading and then POOF – there is an ad staring right at you with regards to the new career you would like.  Perhaps it is an ad for a “free” on-line course that you could apply to pursuing your new career.
  2. You could be driving down the highway and see a billboard with your dream career plastered all over it!
  3. You could turn on a TV show or documentary and there it is again!  Your dream job!

The signs are endless; it is when these signs start showing up, we need to start paying more attention.

We started doing this in our lives; lately those signs won’t stop showing up, which is fine by me!  This just tells me what we are planning, is the path we are meant to be on!

I’m glad I stopped forcing what wasn’t meant to happen at the time; it is when I let things happen when they were meant to happen is when things came to me faster.

When the time is right, it will happen!  You just need to be patient and pay attention to all the greatness around you.  Look outside the box, stay open to those signs presenting themselves, and let your heart guide you.

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – I Love Hearing From You!

Technology is convenient, but it has (at times) created distance.  I’m not complaining about technology, I just don’t want to forget the beauty of a telephone call.

When I say, “back in the day”, I don’t mean 30 years ago, in fact it is only approximately 15 years ago, we used to actually have to pick up the phone and use our voice!  Wow, can you imagine that concept!

I’m not talking about at your place of employment; I’m talking about reaching out to family and friends via the phone!  Oh to hear their voices again!  Yes, we can video chat, and that’s great, but what I’m getting at is hearing just the voice.

I can honestly say, our family probably uses the telephone or cell phone to make an actual call 20% of the time; the 80% is all texting.  I’d like to make a change for our family.  In fact, I can’t help but think of those we have lost; what we would do to just hear their voices again!  Yes, we have letters and cards with their handwriting on them, but it’s the voice we miss!

I remember when I would get a call from my friends; to hear their voices and sit there and visualize their face as they were talking to me, was part of the enjoyment of receiving their call.  When you think about it, technology has left nothing to the imagination in a conversation.  

The beauty of “hearing” their emotions in their voices, the happiness, the laughter, and even the sadness, without using Emoji’s, is something to be cherished!

I love hearing from my friends and family via telephone or cell phone; to hear the feelings put into their call is a true gift to receive.

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – The Rest Of My Life, Will Be The Best Of My Life!

Whenever I found myself in a bit of a funk, I would always remind myself, “The Rest Of My Life, Will Be The Best Of My Life!”

We all experience challenges in our lives, but with this mantra, “the rest of my life, will be the best of my life”, I started to handle those challenges a lot better.  I have found, creative visualization and mantras are essential in our lives.

For the past two years, I have really kicked my mantra into high gear!  In doing so, the challenges I have faced in that time, are handled a lot better.  Seriously, the challenges I have been through, would literally curl someone’s hair (LOL)!  Just like getting struck by lightning!  However, I’ll have to save those for another blog post!

The rest of my life, will be the best of my life, has allowed me to relax more, feel more at peace, and enjoy each day with a smile!  I wish I would have adapted this mindset a very long time ago, but I needed more life experiences to help me to figure it all out.  One thing we cannot do is to push things along when we are not ready.  In time, the bulb will come on, but in the meantime, remember, “The Rest Of Your Life, Will Be The Best Of Your Life!”

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Planning for a Full-Time RV Lifestyle

In planning for a full-time RV lifestyle, lets just say, “we are in the visualization” stage!  This has been our dream for a very long time; to live on the road and experience every corner of North America!

We visualize all the pictures we will be taking, all the blog posts that will go along with those pictures, and all the people we will meet.  The RV Lifestyle is a community within itself and we would love to meet absolutely everyone – or at least try too!

Yesterday, we went and had a peek at a 5th Wheel that is for sale.  It is a 2008, 38 foot Wyoming by Coachman.  Although, we really need a 2 bedroom, it was nice to take the first step in actually checking one out.  By doing this, it really got the ball rolling!  With planning The Good Vibes Only Roadshow North American Tour, this is how we see ourselves traveling across the country.  I can’t wait!!

Talk about having the butterflies; I’m so excited to be planning this new chapter and visualizing how it is all going to come together.  From our home on wheels, to all the venues and RV parks we are going to be staying at – it truly is the ultimate dream for our family.

I would love to hear all your experiences with RV’s, traveling on the road, your RV lifestyle, and how you love it!  Feel free to comment and share your experiences!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Miss Layla Is In The House!

Every now and then, we get the complete honor of looking after Miss Layla!  This cute little dog, who has now become part of our family, along with her Mommy, Joy!  I’m referred to as Auntie Jackie, my husband is referred to as Big Daddy and our daughter is now Layla’s cousin…LOL!  I love the total creative fun Miss Layla has brought to our family.

Although, we get to fur babysit, every two months or so, we still get to see her every day, as she lives in the building we manage!  There is a Gift to everything in life, and this is just one of them.

We have 3 days with Miss Layla in the House!  Since our Husky Wiley passed away, November 2017, there has been that void in our home and in our hearts, but Life has placed Layla in our World and it is what has been needed to help heal our hearts.

We, as a family, can’t tell you how grateful we are for this opportunity!  Today is also my husbands birthday and looking after Miss Layla is such a gift!

If you find yourself mourning the loss of a family pet; there are options for you as well.  Volunteer to spend your time at your local SPCA and give your love to other animals; the energy you will feel from these fur babies will fill the void in your heart.  If you have a friend or family member who have animals, offer to spend time with their pets as well; after all, these beautiful animals are family too💖

We are looking forward to creating some memories with Miss Layla the next 3 days; I know we will cherish them for a very long time.  Gratitude All The Way!
