The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Life’s Laundry

There are times in life, where certain things need to be cleaned up!  I call it, “Life’s Laundry”.

Everyone has their experiences in life that need a good cleaning!  Just because you have something negative happen in your life, does not mean it can’t be cleaned up to become a benefit.

Whether it is a second chance at something, rectifying a problem, or fixing a relationship, not matter what, it can all be cleaned up.  We then come out of it with a positive outlook at what we learned along the way.

If we do not make an attempt at cleaning up our challenges, then our dirty laundry will linger.  This only causes regret and bad/hurt feelings.  We need to love ourselves enough to go that extra mile to clean up to bring positive resolutions.

Dirty laundry needs to be cleaned and in doing so will bring not only wisdom, but less bricks on our shoulders.  The response you may receive while trying to clean the laundry of life, may not always be positive, but know this, by attempting to clean up a mess, this will leave you with no regrets.

Let’s make every day laundry day and keep our lives as clean as possible.

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow -Loving What You Do!

I can’t stress to you enough the importance of loving what you do!  I spent many years, craving to love my career, until I decided there is no reason why I couldn’t love what I do.

We tend to settle for a job or career to get us by in life, and sometimes, circumstances “need” us to do so.  We have all been there; the one thing I didn’t realize is that even in the times I struggled, there were still things I could do to balance my life.

We all need to support ourselves, our families, etc., and the stress can get to us at times, but if we learn to calm our minds knowing we are doing what we “need” to do, then we will eventually be able to do what we “want” to do.  Turn the frustration into a positive; it will help you during the day doing what you “need” to do.

I’ve always had a passion for writing; I may not be an award winner, but I still have stories to tell.  This kept me going when I found myself in jobs which truly did not suit me.  When I found myself in a frustrating job, I looked forward to coming home to dive into my creative writing – it was the balance I personally needed.

Eventually, I was able to move forward into doing what I really wanted to do in life.  I like to think by changing my mindset, as I’ve mentioned above, I was putting out positive affirmations into the Universe to help me to get to where I truly wanted to be – sharing Good Vibes.

I wish you all positive thoughts, encouragement to find what you love to do, and I share with you the confidence in yourself to know you can do it!

Good Vibes Only!


The Good Vibes Only Roadshow -It’s Coffee Time

I woke up this morning to -44 degrees and thought to myself, “It’s a great day for coffee, bundling up on the couch and blogging!”  Living in Northern Ontario, Canada, has convinced me, I live in an area where there are only two seasons:  Winter from November until May, or at least that is when the snow is finally gone, then there is June until October, which would be considered Summer, but in our household it is called, “Baseball Season”.

Today finds me in the deep freeze of Winter and I am not going to complain one bit.  I am grateful for my community, my family, and blogging!  I love days like these, where I can have a nice cup of hot coffee, and contemplate how I would like to express my thoughts to all of you.

I have an endless amount of posts I will be sharing with you; sharing our plans for the future and how I wish it could happen tomorrow!

For now, I will enjoy my coffee!  Good Vibes For A Wonderful Weekend!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – The Happiness Jar

The Happiness Jar is the greatest project I can think of to teach our children, grandchildren, co-workers, friends, and family!

What a great and creative way to start the day!  You don’t need to start this jar on January 1st, you can make any day the start of a new beginning for the Happiness Jar!  Wake Up and show gratitude towards yourself and write a happy note for your future self to read!

What a great concept!  We tend to forget the smallest thing that can bring us happiness, but when we look back after a year of saving up these notes to ourselves, and read what we did not take for granted is such a gift!

I feel schools should be teaching the children and especially teenagers, just how such a simple project can change your entire way of thinking.  Imagine a World with not one bit of bullying?  Time for change!  The Time is Now!  I can’t think of a better project to incorporate into our school programs that could help save lives by teaching the kids to enjoy a positive mindset!

I believe our children, no matter what age they are, deserve the chance to learn just how easy it is to have happy thoughts and to possibly change a cycle that their own families didn’t have the tools to change.

I believe in possibilities, I believe in looking outside the box, and I believe in our youth.  They need the support to make positive changes in this World and it all starts with a little jar, a piece of paper and a pen/pencil.

Good Vibes!!


The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Variety in Life

Having a variety in life is so exciting!  Never deny trying new things!  Variety truly is the spice of life.  Whether you find variety in food, entertainment, watching new movies, reading new books, travel to new destinations, trying a new color of paint on the walls in your home, trying a new supplement, or changing your perspective of looking outside the box; this will all bring a new variety to your life.

You just never know what you can try to bring more positive to your life.

One thing I will never do is deny the opportunity of meeting new people.  Never judge a book by its cover speaks volumes to adding variety to your life.  By making new friends could bring to you a new sense of fun!  A person may have the sense of humor you are needing in your life, they may bring a new sense of peace, compassion and calm.

Harness this “new” in your life and enjoy every experience it may bring.  Variety adds character to our lives, adds a new outlook and a new perspective.  The World needs variety; when you find you are down, variety may bring the escape you are needing to creating something fantastic!

Enjoy this stage! Good Vibes With Variety!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Live Happier Every Single Day

I know when you read the title of this post, “Live Happier Every Single Day”, you may think to yourself, “ya…right!”  I will be honest, in the past, I was guilty of having just this mindset.

Guess What?  I changed my thoughts, my perspective, and I thought to myself, “what can it hurt?”  You can do the same; you can change your very own way of thinking.  I know it isn’t easy to wake up and change your morning thoughts, but it can happen.  Wake up and instead of thinking to yourself, “oh crap, I’ve got to go to work!”, think, “thank goodness I’m alive!”

I started doing this, and it worked!  I used to wake up and think, “I can’t wait for Friday when I could just sleep in; I want this day to be over already”, this just set the tone for the day to be filled with regret and negativity.  I then woke up one day and thought, “my gosh, I’m lucky to be able to have a bed to sleep in, and I’m still able to get up and see another beautiful day!”

Gratitude set in!

When I had this breakthrough, I then felt happier each and every single day.  Granted, I still had my challenges in life, just like everyone else, however, I was able to smile through them.  Something I much rather do!

Give It A Try!  Wake Up Happy!  Maybe you will spread this contagious awakening to others!  Who knows?  I think it is worth a shot!

Good Vibes!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – The Kindness Connection

The Kindness Connection is a bond that cannot be broken.  When you show kindness to another, you are creating a bond of strength.  By being kind to someone,  you are telling them they matter.

When we feel like we matter, this gives us hope, possibilities, and ignites a passion inside of us to believe there is greatness just around the corner.

The Kindness Connection ignites within us a flame of joy.  Kindness comes from the heart and not so much the mind.  Let the heart show you the way to kindness; let the heart show you the way to bring joy to others.

To be kind does not have to cost anything; to be kind just takes a bit of your time.  To be honest, to be kind is the gift to give the World.  There is no reason to “not” be kind; set an example of kindness and connect with those who are in need.  Your kindness can and will change a life – kindness is contagious!

Good Vibes!!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Don’t Wait For Retirement

For the life of me, I could never understand why people would wait for retirement to do things they enjoyed.  To me, this is time wasted!

Every single day, we should be doing something we enjoy.  Whether you focus on a hobby, a sport, or something that puts you one step further to retirement should be celebrated every day.

We, as a family, are doing just that!  We have set some positive goals in our lives; ones that are focused on creativity and helping others.  We are doing this as a family and enjoying the process.

Every day should be looked at as retirement.  Yes, we may work each day, but there is nothing wrong with booking an appointment with yourself to focus on something special that gives you the gift of hope for a positive retirement.  Don’t wait, get up, get going, and start celebrating life each day.  By doing this, even if you work until you are 80 years old, you will still have lived a life filled with so many cherished memories that you did not wait years to make.

Good Vibes!!
