The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Son of A “Bad Word”

Boy! Did that make me laugh!!

A couple weeks ago, it seemed no matter what I was listening too, whether it was on the radio, or on TV, I would hear the phrase, “son of a bad word”; I literally laughed out loud!

I thought to myself, finally a way of expressing ourselves without offending someone! It still packs a punch if you need to “get it out”, but at the same time shows class and respect to those around you, who may be easily offended.

I also thought to myself, “guess someone has run out of swear words”; regardless I thought it was great!

We have all been there, where we needed to let a good ol’ swear come flying out of our mouths! We are all guilty of letting one slip! I will be honest, I am guilty of having let a good one rip, every now and then; part of being human!

The more I thought about it, the more I thought how by saying, “son of a bad word”, would actually smooth things over between two parties, if someone was actually calling someone else the alternate (SOB).

Picture it: Two individuals are not so happy with each other, and then one of them says, “boy, you are such a son of a bad word!” Can you just see the look on the other person’s face? Kind of like a dog who looks confused! 😂😂😂 They would probably forget, at that very moment, what they were arguing about!

The next time you feel the need to let someone have it, with not so nice words, give it a try! I bet before you know it, you both will be laughing and forgetting why your argument even warranted anger with bad words.

Just a thought, and certainly worth a try!

New World, New Way of Thinking, New Perspective!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Living in Harmony

I took a couple of days, with my family, to dive into organizing our new way of life; living in harmony!  I know when you think of living in harmony, the first thing a person thinks of is getting along with the other people you are living with!  Don’t get me wrong, we all get along quite well; what I’m referring to is what we all do in our lives, contributes to living in harmony.  The things that bring us more peace in our lives, brings more harmony!

With the World changing, we decided we needed to change along with it.  We are planning to change our entire lifestyle.  Some changes are going to be a bit on the drastic side, while others not so much.  The main thing, is we are making positive changes.

It would be easy to allow a negative cloud to continue to hang over us, during this time in our World, so we decided when given lemons, we are going to do our best to make the best pitcher of lemonade you could possibly taste!  Tasting Harmony!

When in Harmony, it tends to affect all the senses!  You see, taste, touch, hear, and smell so much better when you live your life in harmony.  When living in harmony, you are living a more balanced life.  When I think of harmony, I also think of rhythm!  So when you sway to music, you are balancing back and forth.

It doesn’t take much to create more harmony in your lives; it just takes a dedication to “not let the negative win”.  We are living in a period of, what I call, “the meantime”, and it is what you do with your time, is what matters.  The more positive the better!  The more creative the better!  The more loving the better!  The more kind the better!  The more happy the better!  The more smiles the better!

In planning our future, we set a goal to change our environment to one of complete calm.  Calm in our indoor and outdoor space, calm by becoming more self sustaining, calm in how we recycle more, calm by building or creating everything we need in our homes by using recycled products, calm in growing everything we need for food, calm by knowing we will have an environment to adopt and bring some loving fur babies into our lives again, and a calm in knowing we are doing all of this to help our World.

Living in Harmony became a very large picture for us, it wasn’t about just getting along with others, it was getting along more with our World, our Earth, and our Nature.  We saw how everything in our World “cleared up” since we have all been kept inside.  The pollution left the sky’s, the waters became clearer, the animals were able to roam freely, and the holes in the ozone were repairing itself.  Quite the concept!

What we are doing now, and what we plan to do in the future, will decide what type of World we will continue to live in.  I pick the continued healing of our World, our Earth and our Nature!  I pick the healing of everyone and everything whom call Earth their home!  I pick the healing of our minds, let us all look at our lives as precious; let us look at our lives as Harmony!

I’d like to continue Living in Harmony this way!  Let the Healing continue in our World!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Shopping Online

I’ll be honest with you, I’ve done some online shopping in my life, but for the most part, I’ve been one to go out and do my shopping, especially for food.  However, times are changing and wouldn’t you know it, the online shopping World is now becoming our new daily normal.

I know you’ve heard me say, “book an appointment with yourself”, well at that time, I was referring to booking an appointment with yourself to do some self-wellness activity.  Who would of thought I would be saying, “book an appointment with yourself to do some daily online shopping” – New World!!

I suppose I took for granted that you were already doing at least some online shopping.

I have been researching products, deliveries, costs, and trying to get into a system where our family does not have to leave our home so much.  I’m happy to announce, after 4 solid days of research and organization, our family is now 100% online (delivery) and online (curbside) for every one of our needs.

Feels good to know by doing so, we have created more space in the grocery stores/essential stores for those who do not have access to online shopping

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow -A Few Special Friends

I’ve always done this, but more so now than ever, I’ve been thinking a lot about my friends 💞

Friends from my childhood, friends from my young adult days, friends that I’ve worked with in the past, and friends I have now.  I’m grateful there is somewhat of a crossover with my childhood to now, and from my past to now, and even from my career to now, but it doesn’t matter what part of my life my friends came from, I’ve been thinking of them.

I know I’m not alone in thinking about them or the memories they have brought to me; we are all probably finding ourselves walking down this lane.  I’m grateful for the adventure these memories have taken me on.  Plus I’m grateful for being able to still talk to these individuals.

I suppose you could say, “we are making new memories together!”

This last week, I found myself wanting badly to travel to go visit some of these friends, and of course knowing that I couldn’t was a bit difficult.  Before I became to sad or depressed, I decided to research ways of communicating instead of using Messenger or Texting.  Along with the rest of the World, I came across Zoom.  I’m excited to get started with it; part of me is nervous, but for the most part I’m excited.

I miss my friends quite a bit; there are some I haven’t spoken to in many years, but I also know that the minute we start talking it will be like we never stopped.  Those are my “special friends”, the ones where you have that chemistry, the bond, and the utmost respect for each other, that nothing can stand in the way of picking up where you left off.

The old saying (1970’s) used to be, “pick up the phone and reach out and touch somebody”, but now the way I look at it, it wouldn’t surprise me if the saying became, “reach out and Zoom somebody!”  As a kid, the first saying never made much sense to me either, because I couldn’t figure out how you could touch someone through the phone!  Keep in mind, I was only 8 or 9 at that point!! 😂😂 Times are changing!

My message for you today:

Reach out and communicate with those you are missing!  Pick up your phone, try Zoom, text, Messenger, or even FaceTime!  We have options!  Let your friends know you are thinking of them, talk about the good times, and do some walking down memory lane!  Stay connected!  Remind them they are loved, they are needed in your life, and remind them of how much happiness they brought to your life and continue to do so.  Appreciation for your Special Friends!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – We All Need Excitement In Our Lives

More now than ever, we need to find some excitement in our lives!  I have a bit of a plan😉😉

I will start by letting you know, I have no problem diving into childlike thinking at times;  remembering my youth!  Not so much who I was at a young age, but instead all the hopes and dreams I had as a child.  If you want to take a moment to smile, then please start thinking of all those dreams you had as a child.

As I start thinking back to my mind as a child and who I wanted to be, where I wanted to live, what I wanted to do when I “grew up”, and how I was going to do all of this, I also start thinking about all the kids I went to elementary school with and then it all comes back; I remember their dreams too ❤ you may even want to start reaching out to those friends you had and striking up a new friendship.

How exciting it was as a child, to have such big hopes and dreams!  The thrill and happiness it brought to my face, at just the thought of actually achieving those dreams.

It then dawned on me, why can’t I achieve those dreams now?  Oh My Gosh!!  I was feeling excited at just the thought!  I couldn’t wait to get started!

In that one thought, I created “added” excitement in my life!  I was like a scientist rubbing her hands together over her experiment at the possibility she could have come up with the latest cure!

The passion I had as a young girl for my dreams, was like no other; the excitement I felt as a child for my dreams, came back to me.

I really gave myself something more to look forward too!

If you are finding yourself bored with being at home, having already watched all of Netflix, and not sure what to do next, then I would recommend you sit down, grab a pen and paper and write down all your childhood dreams!  You will start to laugh, you may even start to cry, but at the end of the day, you will have found the excitement was back in your heart as you had as a little child.

I believe that is a gift you can give yourself!  You gave yourself the gift of excitement in your life and it didn’t cost you anything and you didn’t have to leave your home to find it.  Harness the dreams of a child, start researching them online, and you just never know, maybe you will be able to accomplish one of them!  Where there is a will there is always a way!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – How Are You Doing?

I won’t lie, the past month has been quite the year!!!  How are you all doing?

I feel it is very important to check in with each other, more now than ever.  Opening up the lines of communication, opening up your heart, and just saying a great big, “Hello!  How are you doing?”

I have been doing a whole lot of thinking these days!  I must tell you, I am learning quite a bit about life and how grateful I am for everyone in my life.  I’m not just grateful for my family and friends, but I find myself grateful for absolutely everyone on this planet!

I am grateful for the picture of the little kids coloring pictures for our healthcare workers.  I am grateful for the news broadcasters who are also risking their lives to protect us with the latest news.  I am grateful for all emergency crews, for grocery store clerks, for pharmacists providing medicine to those in need, for our sanitation crews still picking up our garbage, recycling and composting.  I am grateful for delivery companies, truck drivers bringing supplies to our stores, and for post office employees still delivering mail.  I am grateful for our Governments who are trying desperately to work together with Peace, health, and our futures in mind.  It can’t be an easy job; our patience is required while they try to do the best for us.

I am extremely grateful for social media and the internet!  Without it we wouldn’t be able to help each other and lift each other up through these different times.  I would be lost without all of you!  I am so grateful to be able to talk to you all, and will forever be grateful for this platform.

I am grateful to have Facebook!  I can see my family who do not live with us.  I can still tell them I love them!  I can still see my friends and support their hopes for a better tomorrow.  I can support my followers and provide them with as much inspiration as I can, knowing that if I help just one person a day, then I’m doing my part in this World!

There are so many more people I am grateful for, the list is endless, but I must say, I am very grateful for the pictures of pets and animals.  They have no idea what is going on, but their images bring so much comfort to many.

I wake up each day, hoping and praying that everyone is doing well, they are safe, and they are remaining in their homes to remain healthy.

This is how I am doing in my life; how are you doing?

I want to hear you, I want you to use your voice and express yourself, and I want you to do this knowing you are safe to wear your heart on your sleeve.  You will be heard!  Share your days, your hopes and your dreams.

I wish you all comfort ❤

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Turning Pain Into Power

We can easily let our pain and emotional turmoil control us to the point where there is no return, but no matter how hard it is, it is important to force yourself to turn your pain into power!

What good can come out of our pain?  Can we make a difference in this World by turning our pain into power?  I’d like to think so ❤ even the power of a virtual hug

I’m not trying to be insensitive, in fact, I’m trying to be extremely supportive towards mental health.  We all need encouragement in our lives – we need to know it is okay to take our pain and try to help someone else with the power of experience.

There will always be someone in the World who has had a similar experience as you have.  Instead of saying, “you have no idea what I’m feeling”, you can say, “I understand we have been through something very similar to each other, and I appreciate the fact that we can come together knowing we are not alone”.  Doesn’t that feel better?

We need to be supportive through our pain, through our struggles, and also through our lessons learned.  That is where the Power lies!  Learning through our pain!  It is okay to embrace your pain, knowing you are gaining power to help others, to make a difference in the World, or to simply live a more positive life.

During this time, we need to understand that the World is experiencing a whole new level of pain, BUT, we can still make a difference by not letting this control the lasting effects of pain.

Become a pillar in someone’s life; we all need to stand up and be there for everyone.  Let the Power help you to become that light for someone else.  What a way to give a gift to a struggling soul.  Pick them up, dust them off, and give them the strength to find their own power.

We can do this together! One virtual hug at a time!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – We Are Making History! We Are All In This Together!

Facebook asks me every morning, “What’s on my mind?”
Then it hit me like a Mack Truck!
AT THE MOMENT, WE ARE ALL MAKING HISTORY!
The World has finally all come together as ONE and are working as a Team with nothing but care and compassion in their Hearts
The enemy in this case is invisible and we NEED each other to fight it off!  In my eyes, this is World War III and we are not fighting each other.
We truly are ONE!
The thought that we are doing this brought tears to my eyes.  The thought of what it took to bring us all together, made me cry even more, but the reality of it is that we were not fighting each other to get us to this point.
It is possible to live in Peace, to actually love each other enough (as we are doing now) to be kind to everyone, and it is possible to live a life where we do not cause pain to another human being or animal!
We are living the proof right now, that we can continue doing so!  Life is precious!

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!
