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 – 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 – 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 – Happy Birthday Big Daddy!

Happy Birthday to my husband and best-friend, John a.k.a Big Daddy!

I feel very fortunate to have John in my life; we have had 13 years of great experiences!  I’ve learned so much from every one of them!  Our experiences together, have been ones of growth in all areas of our lives.

The beauty of our relationship, first and foremost, is we were friends for a year before we even decided to date.  This allowed our communication with each other to be completely open.  In blending a family together, our bond as friends allowed this process to be one with a concrete foundation.  We have appreciated each others opinions, beliefs, and ideas with openness and respect.  For this I am truly grateful 💖

Two years ago, John’s Mom passed away on his birthday; this has been something very hard to adjust too, but at the same time, we have acknowledged her passing on his birthday as “her way” of saying, “I’m still here with you 💖”

Since both John and I have had to say “good-bye” to both our parents, it never really is “good-bye”;  I’d like to think that our parents, in their passing, are just 3 feet above us and over to the left a bit watching over us – their spirits are still here comforting us along our journey!

On his birthday, the best gift I can think of giving him, is the constant reminder “your Mom picked you!”  That to me, is the best gift!  Even though she isn’t physically with us, in her passing she has reminded us she is in spirit!  I feel that is the best gift to receive from the passing of a loved one!

I am so grateful for his love!  I am grateful for the father he is and the friend he is too many!  I am grateful for his constant friendship, his encouragement, and his drive for our future plans as a family!  Today is a great day!

With all the love in my heart, I wish my husband the best day ever!  With Good Vibes Only – Happy Birthday Big Daddy!💖

 

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Bohemian Lifestyle

Bohemian:  A person, musician, artist, or writer who lives a free-spirited life and believes in truth, freedom and love!  ABSOLUTELY!!!  Who wouldn’t want to live this type of lifestyle?  You don’t need to be an artistic individual to crave this existence!

The truth is, I not always lived this type of lifestyle!  There was a time where I was caught up in the thought that life was all about monetary success and your environment needed to scream, “material girl!!”.  I look at that time in my life as allowing myself to be totally brainwashed into believing the old-fashioned traditions!  Thank Goodness I Snapped Out Of It!!

You don’t have to be a Hippie to live a Bohemian Lifestyle; it is a mindset, not a fashion statement!  Yes, the Bohemian lifestyle, when you look at decor, fashion, etc., is total eclectic and relaxed and I myself live this type of lifestyle in our home, but for others wanting this lifestyle, it is not a necessity to refurnish your home or go out and buy an entire new wardrobe.  You can focus on the mindset first!  The decor and wardrobe are a personal choice and in time, if you feel you are ready and “need” this in your life, then enjoy this transition.

The Bohemian Lifestyle has comforted me in my personal journey in not only finding peace in my life, but in creating The Good Vibes Only Roadshow blog and book.  I found a new comfort in my lifestyle; for this I have much gratitude!

A Lifestyle is a personal choice; the choice, if made with your heart, will bring  you Peace!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Getting Your Hands Dirty

The element of Earth!  Grounding!  Your soul needs to feel grounded and secure.

Spring is here and if you garden, I’m sure you are doing cartwheels right about now!  Get your hands dirty with life!  Gardening brings out the kid in me; I’ll even take the time to make the odd mud pie!  Makes me smile!

If you do not garden, place your hands in the dirt and feel it in between your fingers.  Feel the energy the earth brings to your hands.

Recently, I read where people are gravitating more to mud baths for the grounding sensation it gives to the mind, body, and soul.  Your body is immersed in the combination of mud powder to bring you to a natural state of calm.

Grounding is so important in life; helps us to live in a calming way 💖

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Living Together As A Family

Living our lives together as a family, consists of so much!  I am a woman who has a belief system, you don’t have to move out of the family home once you turn 18 or graduate from school.  I understand independence, but when the time is right.  Age should not dictate, “when a person is ready” to move out and start their lives.

Experience and Wisdom will allow the feeling of being comfortable to “want” to move out of the family home.

For our family, we have the belief that if you can all still live together and “want” to live together as a family, then why not!  It does not stop anyone from growing “independently” or “having responsibility”, in fact it has created a stronger bond, one that our dreams in life are focused on.

We have provided options to our kids; if they want to stay with us, they can.  If they want to live on their own, they can do that as well.  Freedom of choice!

When you force your child to, “move out”, they are starting their independent life with fewer choices.  The chances of them having a difficult time in life, providing for themselves (especially in today’s World) are going to be more of a struggle for them.  You can help your child grow and gain their independence under the same roof.  We are not living in the 1950’s, we need to adjust to the World we live in and support each other; creating new traditions.

I know everyone has their own opinion on this topic and all kids are different; but I’d like to believe in order for our children to succeed in life, they need to venture out when they are ready and not by being forced out the door.

Everything we do in life, from living together, loving each other, supporting each other, and caring for each other, needs to be done without pressure – the World is a different place today, but we can still live in Peace.
