The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Living a Stress Free Life

Living a stress free life does not mean, you have lots of money sitting in the bank.  Isn’t it funny how, when we hear someone is stress free, they tend to think they have lots of money?  This is not always the case.

For me, living a stress free life means, we know how to remain calm in negative situations, we know how to live one day at a time, and we know how to find the happiness in every single day.

Something very important:   You need to understand, every issue you may find yourself dealing with is temporary.  You have heard the phrase, “this too shall pass”; it is true!

When challenges creep up on us, we tend to think, these challenges will be with us forever, but they never stay that long.  By understanding challenges are temporary, will help you to remain calm when these challenges show up.  It will also help you to deal with them and to make right decisions.  Developing this mindset is the beginning of living a stress free life.

It is in our approach to every situation which sets the tone for how we live each day.

Yes, we need money to be able to buy the necessities in life; food, shelter, clothing, etc., but it does not have to dictate whether you are stress free or not.  To be honest, the pressure some people put on themselves to have more money in the bank, tends to create stress.

I enjoy waking up each morning happy, regardless if I have some challenges coming my way, than waking up worried about how much I have in the bank.

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Vintage Market Finds

With Spring just around the corner, I can’t help but have the urge to go to yard sales, garage sales, vintage markets, and used stores.

I find, going on a vintage adventure, brings out more creativity in me.  There is a story behind every treasure you find at these venues.  From books to signs, from clothing to dishes, there is always something for everyone.

In planning The Good Vibes Only Roadshow 2024 North American Tour, part of our itinerary is to map out vintage markets and perhaps participate in one or two.  I’m so excited to be planning this part of the tour.   I’m looking forward to not only seeing all the treasures, but speaking with the people who are selling them.  I’m preparing myself to hear all kinds of stories; fueling my creativity along the way.

Please feel free to recommend a vintage market you may have in mind; I would love to hear all about it!

With Good Vibes Only and Vintage Market Finds!  I Wish You Many Beautiful Stories in Your Own Treasures You May Find!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Changing a Vibration

Approximately 8 months ago, I met a woman who instantly came across extremely negative.  It didn’t matter what we spoke about; she found a way to put a negative spin on the conversation.

Over time, she has maintained this persona of being a negative woman.

Two months ago, I decided to talk to her about “positive” things that have been happening.  Well, she wouldn’t have it!  I finally looked at her with compassion and said, “are you not tired of thinking of negative responses to every conversation?  It must be so exhausting for you.”

For a split second, I found myself thinking, “oh boy, she is going to let me have it!”

Instead, she looked at me in shock, tears welled up in her eyes, and she shook her head, “yes”.

I said, “can I help you find some positive in your life with you?”  We all need comfort in our lives; by extending my help, she didn’t feel all alone.

She finally smiled!  I couldn’t believe my eyes!  The beauty that came across her face with that smile, was amazing!  There was a beautiful person inside that wounded shell.  Her eyes were brighter, color came back to her face, and she looked taller (this happens when your shoulders are not attached to your ears with tension) as her shoulders dropped to where they were supposed to be.

Her vibration was attractive!  Now every day that I see her, she smiles at me, you don’t hear her finding the negative in everything, and she is starting to show quite the personality now.  I know, it will be a “one day at a time” project for her, but at the very least the energy she is radiating is a positive one.

It is possible to change a vibration!  What a relief to see this beautiful woman not look so tired!  Vibration can lift you up!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Stepfamily

Anyone can be a Mother, Father,  Stepmom, or Stepdad, but it takes a fearless warrior to be a great parent!  Absolutely true!

Technically, my husband and I are both stepparents to our children.  In trying to have some fun with being a stepparent, I used to refer to being a stepmom as, “Mom The Sequel!”  😊😊

The stereotype of being a stepparent has its ups and downs and to be honest, it is kind of blah to me; I like to look at it in a fun way!

As stepparents, we need to constantly be respectful of the children’s feelings who have experienced the divorce of their parents.  Lets face it, these little humans have feelings too 💖 we need to be respectful, as this is also a way of teaching them to be respectful of their parents and others.

At first, everything is about adjustment; this can last for many years.  Again, feelings don’t heal overnight, and we need to have compassion for our children who may be dealing with this confusion in their lives.  Patience is a complete virtue!

Over time, things will and do get better.  With compassion, the children will soon learn as they mature, the new parents in their lives, are not there to destroy the relationship between their own parents, but instead to add to the love of the child.  We are there to show love, compassion, kindness, and generosity.  More love to a child, makes for a happier child.  They will also learn these values in life quicker and will then be able to find more positive in life than negative.

Whether you look at a stepfamily as “just a step family”, or whether you see it as an “extended” family, as long as there is love, then this will help you get through the challenging times.

Be a friend!  Create a bond as a friend; the child will start to feel comfortable and will tend to open up more to you with difficult topics.  We as parents need to keep lines of communication open with all our children; establishing that “friend” part of being a parent will make them feel free to talk to you about anything.

We took this approach with our children, and let me tell you, there isn’t anything we haven’t discussed with all our children.  The lines of communication are completely open 💖

I’m sharing this with you, as I believe if we take 10% of what someone is telling us and tuck it away in our memory, you just never know when it may come in handy.  We don’t have the answers to everything; we are learning as we go, but if something positive is the outcome, then feel free to keep sharing with others.

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow -The Best Is Yet To Come

Every now and then, we may find ourselves in a bit of a rut; easily depressed and possibly stressed out.  It happens and if we let it, the rut gets deeper and deeper until we cannot breathe.  Yikes!  Just typing those two sentences, gave me the sensation of choking!  Who needs that?  I know I don’t!!

Instead, when you do find the possibility these times are approaching you, please remind yourself, “The Best Is Yet To Come!”  These “ruts” are tests, and if you learn to acknowledge them as “tests”, then your mind will prepare you for greatness which will be just around the corner.

Trust me, I know, it is a test of strength to not allow depression and stress to take over, but by training your mind to turn lemons into lemonade and to learn to accept challenges with a wink 😉 you will live a calmer and more productive life!  YOUR LIFE IS WORTH IT!

The Best Is Yet To Come!!

We need to be productive with our challenges; learn from them, gain the wisdom, and share the experiences with others in hopes to help them along their own journey.

By helping others is “YOU” at your BEST!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Blended Family

My family and I, are what you would call, a Blended Family.  To be honest, I don’t see a need to specify if we are family, or a blended family, as to be honest we are simply, FAMILY!

The truth is, we are not related by blood, but our hearts have become ONE, and we have established unique relationships with each other based on appreciation.

When you bring two families together, in a blended way, I don’t see why it should be any different from bringing two families together in a marriage where there are no children involved.  Either way, it is two different families coming together.

I know the children may not have been a result in this new blended family, but the way I look at it, by caring for these children, as if they were your own biologically, makes them your sons and daughters.  The love you feel and share with these children is no different from the love you feel for your own children.  At least, that is how I look at it.

It isn’t easy bringing two families together, there can be challenges, but if you remain true to who you are and your intentions which come from your heart, then over time things will improve.

Our family is unique;  we love each other, we compliment each other with our personalities and we share great memories.  Allowing growth and understanding in a blended family, will help not only the adjustment, but will also bring more love.

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – People Admiring (Watching)

Whenever my parents would go to the mall for some shopping, my Dad would wait on the bench and “people watch”, as he would like to say.  As a young child, I could never understand, why he was wanting to “watch” a person.  What was he looking for?

Over time, I decided to change “people watching” into “people admiring”; it sounded better!😉

It is human nature to look and watch other people, but you really don’t hear the term, “I’m admiring that person”, if asked why you are looking at them.  Every now and then you may hear it, but for the most part, people are just watching.

We live in an age where if you are caught in the act of “watching” someone, the labels start.  Stereotypes are not the most pleasant, but I believe if we focus on compliments rather than stares, then not only are you making someone’s day, but you are starting to change a persona.

In my own little World,  I started what I call the “People Admiration Project”.  When I see a complete stranger and they, for whatever reason, stand out to me, I’m going to compliment them.  If they stand out to me in concern, then I’m going to ask, “is everything okay?”  Either way, this individual will know that someone cares.  Sometimes that’s all that is needed.

The World we live in has become one of, “you can’t do this, and you can’t do that”, everyone is so guarded and I understand why, but it is time to drop the shield and become One again.  If you see someone looking sad, you can acknowledge them.  It truly is okay to do so.  You may be saving someone without even knowing it, by just asking if they are okay.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with telling someone, “you have a beautiful smile”, “you have beautiful eyes”, or “I love what you are wearing, do you mind if I ask where you bought that?”  To be honest, what if this person you just complimented, was under mental/emotional abuse just hours before from their significant other?  By complimenting them, you just helped “just a little bit”, to give them some self-esteem.

You don’t know someone’s story, especially a complete stranger, never assume, they may need your kind words, more than you know.

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Connection

Just a little thought for the day:

Guess what?  We are all connected!!  Amazing, isn’t it?

For me, I am so excited to know that I am connected to all of you!  I’m connected to not only my family and friends, but I’m connected to everyone!  We are connected as our Race is Human!

I wonder if everyone looked at their neighbor as being “connected” to them, would it make a difference?  Would you be happier knowing this?  What about your coworker?  Or better yet, your BOSS!!!  Would that improve your working relationships and environment?

I’d like to think all relationships would improve, if we all realized we are all connected to each other.

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Free Spirit Way Of Life

There is no doubt about it, I am a Free Spirit!  Everything that crosses my path, I look at in a peaceful way!

I had a conversation with my husband last night, as he was watching a history show on television.  I asked him, “why do you think fighting or War was even a thought from the very beginning?”  His answer stemmed around the greed of others.

Personally, I never understood the reasoning behind actual fighting.  Fighting has become the first instinct for many.  Why couldn’t people just communicate their differences and acknowledge we all have our own beliefs?  Why do some feel the need to make it their mission to change people?  Isn’t our differences something that make us unique?  I believe the more people who get involved in trying to change someone’s beliefs, the more harm they are doing, as it causes such negativity.  I’m not talking about religion; I am focusing on just every day beliefs aside from faith.

There are so many questions as to why the World is the way it is, but it is really in how we look at our differences that helps make it a better place to live.  I’ve maintained a “free spirit” attitude for many years now; I don’t want to change anyone, I just want everyone to be happy.  I really don’t think that is too much to ask.  Be happy with your life, find the goodness in it and share positive vibes to everyone!  Could you imagine if everyone were to do this, there would be nothing to complain or fight about.

I know there are many people out there that won’t be happy until they change an others opinion; if they only realized that perhaps, one may change their opinion in their own time.  It’s when they feel pressure to change, is when the odds are, they won’t.

I live a life as a Free Spirit; no matter if negativity does cross my path, I look at it as if this negativity is just “in the meantime” and one day this negativity will stop as it has moved forward into something great!

I find the love in everything I do, everyone I come across, and every moment during my day.  The freedom I feel by doing so, is without a doubt the best feeling I could ever feel.  I’m Free!
