The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Love You!

Love – the best 4 letter word you can say!

The word “Love” does not always mean “to fall in love with someone”, but instead I believe Love should start with “falling in love with yourself” first.

You can love so many people, animals, places, food, things, information, and the World itself, but not many people will say, “I love myself” first when asked the question, “what is it that you love?  Who do you love?”

In starting this new year, I decided to start my day off with Affirmations!  You know, the “I Am” process which everyone should do.  That’s just my opinion 😊 I found in starting my day off in a positive way before my feet even hit the floor in the morning, I was loving myself more and more.  I was loving myself from the “inside” which then made my love for the “outside” of myself better.

We are all guilty of being our worst critics, but what about being are greatest supporters?  By supporting yourself and finding the positive in yourself, you in turn starting loving yourself more and more every single day!

I feel it is so very important to Love Yourself!  With so much negativity in the World (which I might add, could all be solved with a good old fashioned “love thy neighbor” workshop), we need to focus on Love.  When you love yourself, you smile more.  When you love yourself, you are more kind to others. When you love yourself, you have a sense of Peace.

There is so much to be grateful for in your life; start by being grateful for yourself!  Start by loving who you are, your thoughts, your dreams, your kindness towards others, and your compassion!  These are just a few areas of your life you can start with, then each day, add one or two more characteristics about yourself that you should and could love.

Share your love for yourself; love is contagious and should be shared!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Let The Sun Shine!

Depending on where you live and depending on the type of weather you experience, this time of year can bring on the “hum drum” sadness.  Cold and snowy weather can cause us to sink into a tiny bit of depression.  We don’t realize just how much we rely on a beautiful sunny day.

This is when I like to harness creative visualization to get me through those days.

It is funny, just how powerful our minds are, when we visualize sunny days, or anything positive for that matter.  Our environment is a reflection of who we are, and especially when weather affects us, it is important to dive into our creative ability to change our environment to help guide us out of the “hum drum” state.

What I like to do, is create a warm destination in my own home.  I will have a nice citrus candle or aromatherapy burner going, I will take a bath filled with tropical senses, and if I happen to be staying home for the day, I will dress as if it is 90 degrees outside – nothing wrong with wearing your flip flops in the house and freeing your feet.  I will turn on some Hawaiian music, and I will even cook a summer dinner.  It works!  I don’t even have to look outside and see the 3 feet of snow; my mind has created a nice sunny day with beautiful flowers.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is something that should be taken seriously; if you find yourself experiencing SAD, then it is important to start with your environment.  Your Home!  Our senses are the way to helping yourself feel better.  From the sense of smell, taste, and hearing.  Give yourself the gift of treating your senses to a burst of sunlight!

Remember, this weather is temporary and we will all get through it!  We will all enjoy the sun that is shining and making us smile soon enough; but for now, there is nothing wrong with creating this atmosphere in your home.

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – It Takes Nothing To Apologize

One thing that seems consistent in this World we live in, is there is not enough apologizing.  We all make mistakes, we all say things that could offend, we all wish we could take those words back.  Are you sorry?  Is it ego?  Is it being stubborn?  What is it?

We never remind ourselves, what it would be like if the shoe was on the other foot!

We don’t always intentionally hurt the feelings of others, so then why is it so hard to tell those we have hurt, we are sorry?

It truly takes nothing to apologize; how hard is it?

It is time to look in the mirror and first apologize to ourselves for not being brave enough to apologize to those who truly need to hear it.  Then go out and wear your heart on your sleeve and tell them you are sorry.  Not only will this help remove the bricks off your shoulders from carrying that weight of regret, but you will put a smile on someone’s face who truly deserves to be able to smile again.

Honesty is key!  Free your mind, free your soul, and free the hurt that is caused by not apologizing.  It takes only two words, and in fact, just one second to say!

I’m Sorry!

You will feel better, the person who hears your apology will feel better and guess what?  The energy around you will feel better!!  No more dark cloud, but instead sunshine!  Smiles!  Hugs!  Feelings from the Heart!

Free Your Mind!  Apologize!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – The Question: What Are You Thankful For?

Every morning, when I open my eyes from my sleep, I take a moment to think about what I am thankful for, before I even get out of my bed.  I know it sounds easy to do, but to be honest it took discipline.

I was in the habit of waking up and jumping out of bed and not really thinking about anything, aside from, “I can’t wait until 5 pm”.  I would start my day, crabby, anxious waiting for the day to end, and somewhat depressed.  Something had to change!

I decided to do myself a favor and take a moment of, “me time”, before I started my day.  I started with making a conscious effort to lay in bed and think of three (3) things I was thankful for before my feet hit the floor.  I came up with this:

I am thankful for waking up!

I am thankful for my family!

I am thankful for being able to smile!

I kept it simple and easy, but to be honest, it changed the way I looked at my day!  I was no longer in a panic for the day to end!  As my day went on, I found more positive things to be thankful for.  Whether it was the blue sky, a smile from a stranger, or being able to have clean water, I found something throughout my day to keep me focused on the bigger picture in life!  Being thankful!

My morning list has grown, and I am thankful for that as well!  We tend to find so many things to focus on which cause us anxiety; I think it is time to set those aside and focus on what brings us a sense of peace.

Calming the mind, first thing in the morning, will help you throughout your day!  Be thankful for you!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – I Laugh Too Myself!

Laughter is the Best Medicine!

Life is filled with so much to worry about; I think it is time we start focusing on what there is too laugh about!  We take the time to worry and consume ourselves with the “what ifs”, that we forget just how much more there is in life to smile or laugh at!

We have options to help ourselves laugh!

If you are feeling consumed by worry, take a break and dive into the following:

  • Turn on a comedy
  • Go into your local bookstore and read a joke book
  • Google is everyone’s best-friend, search humor
  • Use your mind and think back to a time where something made you laugh

And if that doesn’t work, and don’t ask me why this tends to make someone laugh, but “picture” someone stubbing their toe!  I’m not one for enjoying someone else’s pain, but for whatever reason, the majority will get at least a little chuckle out of watching a good ol’ toe stubbing.

There are always options to find a good laugh!  Don’t let the negative in!  Learn to laugh at it!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – What Makes You Think?

Every single day, there seems to be a list a mile long, of what makes me think!  The “mile long list” makes me think of one thing that truly is important in life – Happiness!

If it isn’t something that someone says, watching the news on television, reading articles on social media, or hearing the “emergency alerts” go off on my cell phone with the latest missing child, there is always something to make me think.  I find myself thinking about, “what went wrong” in someone’s life, why is there so much negativity, and how can we change the World we live in.

At the end of the day, it is about the lack of happiness in their lives.  After listening to some of their stories; I think some more.

Life, sure knows ways of handing it to us!  It is seeking out the help we need to help us get back to Happiness!  I know at times, it seems hard to even believe that you could find happiness, but in all honesty, I think it is worth a try!

Even though, I’m just one person in this huge World, I’d like to try and help as many people as I possibly can!  Sometimes, it is just sharing a smile with someone hurting, give a shoulder to cry on, and an ear to listen – I’m willing to do this to help someone see there are people who genuinely care.

In, “what makes me think”, I think it is time to help one person at a time.

If you feel blessed, then become a blessing to someone else!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – I Wonder How They Are Doing

How many times have you said to yourself, “I wonder how they are doing?”

What is stopping you from reaching out?  Did you end a friendship on a bad note?  Time heals!  If you are wondering how someone is doing, then pick up the phone!  Yes it is still nice to hear a voice!  Set aside the worry of whether or not your call would be accepted; make it and mend something that had possibly been broken.  Be the person who reaches out to let a person know they are thought of!  That is the Gift!

If they are in your mind, then they are in your heart!  Whether the relationship is good or bad, pick up that phone and let them know how important they are to you!  We need more of this in the World!  Take the time to reach out!

I also know at times, we wonder how our loved ones are doing, who have passed away!  It is nice to believe their spirits are still with us, so why not sit down and write a letter to them?  There is absolutely nothing wrong with writing a letter to someone we have lost; after all  some of the best music is written this way!  This is the best way to heal; you can say everything you need to say to your loved one.  You will receive the gift of their answer in life.  Believe me, when writing to a loved one who has passed away, you will start feeling comforted.  That is the real gift you will receive by getting your thoughts out on paper.

Regardless, if you are wondering how someone is doing, then reach out!  They may need you more than you know.  💖
