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 – Because Of You!

I wanted to take a moment to thank each and every one of you; because of you, I am inspired, motivated, and more passionate about my “blogging” and “writing” lifestyle.

I have noticed, I have become more creative, more driven, and happy because of you!

Every morning when I wake up, I see your “follows”, your “likes” and your “comments”; it has been the best start to my day!

I appreciate my blog, but most importantly, I appreciate all of you.  Your kindness in following my blog has warmed my heart!

I will forever be grateful!

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 – Gratitude On The Road

Living in Northern Ontario, we get A LOT OF SNOW!  It generally starts in November (sometimes late October) and lasts until the end of April.  The thaw lasts until mid-May!!  So it is a long season!

Depending on the severity of the Winter Storm; the roads are very well maintained!  With a combination of salt and sand, and the endless convoy of plow trucks, makes for safe driving conditions.

I feel it is very important to take the time to acknowledge “anyone” who works for a company who contributes to keeping our roads safe during this long winter season!  Not just here in Northern Ontario, but every place in this World of ours who experience snow and icy roads.

This job is a “24/7” job and at times, others can take their work they are doing for granted.  These people sacrifice their lives, time with their families, and sleep for that matter, to work through storms to keep us as safe as possible.

I, personally, can’t thank these individuals enough!  I know the job isn’t easy, but it is appreciated more than they know!
