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.  💖

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Attitude Adjustment! 😊

When I was a young girl, somewhere between the ages of 7 and 13, I remember when my Mom would be talking to another parent about another child (yes, gossip) it seemed every parent would at sometime say, “that kid needs an attitude adjustment!”

Now, as a woman, in my 50’s, I can honestly say, “some adults need an attitude adjustment!”

The bullying and negative behavior, sometimes, never stops!  In observing these individuals, who figure turning 65 gives them the license to be this way, I am here to tell them, there isn’t one thing that would give them the right to be a bully no matter what age they are!

I am here to tell them, “you can get help to adjust your attitude!”  Trust me, once you do, the World will be a much nicer place to live in!  You will actually wake up happy and content, rather than grouchy and miserable.  There will always be something for these people to focus on that can make them happy!

Adjust the Attitude with Acts of Kindness!  Learn to Warm Your Own Heart by Giving The Gift of Kindness!  What a cool concept!

Instead of being the bully; reach out to a child or young adult who is “being” bullied and provide an act of kindness to them.  Teach them, that “yes”, there are some kind people in the World.  Look at that child in the eyes, and before you speak, think of how you felt being bullied!  Let’s face it, you were bullied at one time as well, you just didn’t know how to stop the madness!  What was the one thing you wanted more?  Comfort, kindness and to just be accepted for who you were!  Am I right?   Could you hurt this child?  No?  Then think of this child as a grown individual.  Could you still hurt this person?  Before you answer, remember, nothing has changed about this child, except their age!  Same heart, same eyes, same feelings, and same innocence.  Are you thinking?

We are not all Bully’s!  Stop following in the footsteps of bullying!  Show our young children and young adults, that it is okay to change a negative into a positive!

Set an example!  Be an example!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – They Knew Her When

They Knew Her When

They Knew Her When it was convenient for them!

They Knew Her When she was what they wanted her to be!

They Knew Her When she was hurting inside!

They Knew Her When she couldn’t find a way to smile!

They Knew Her When they wanted to disregard her feelings!

They Knew Her When she would let them hurt her!

They Knew Her When

 

Do They Know Her Now?

Do They Know how strong she has become?

Do They Know how happy she truly is?

Do They know you cannot hurt her anymore?

Do They know her passions?

Do They know her dreams?

Do They know she loves?

Do They know she cares?

Do They know the size of her heart?

 

Do They Know, She “KNEW THEM WHEN” as well?

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 – 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 – 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!
