When I was a young girl, somewhere between the ages of 7 and 13, I remember when my Mom would be talking to another parent about another child (yes, gossip) it seemed every parent would at sometime say, “that kid needs an attitude adjustment!”
Now, as a woman, in my 50’s, I can honestly say, “some adults need an attitude adjustment!”
The bullying and negative behavior, sometimes, never stops! In observing these individuals, who figure turning 65 gives them the license to be this way, I am here to tell them, there isn’t one thing that would give them the right to be a bully no matter what age they are!
I am here to tell them, “you can get help to adjust your attitude!” Trust me, once you do, the World will be a much nicer place to live in! You will actually wake up happy and content, rather than grouchy and miserable. There will always be something for these people to focus on that can make them happy!
Adjust the Attitude with Acts of Kindness! Learn to Warm Your Own Heart by Giving The Gift of Kindness! What a cool concept!
Instead of being the bully; reach out to a child or young adult who is “being” bullied and provide an act of kindness to them. Teach them, that “yes”, there are some kind people in the World. Look at that child in the eyes, and before you speak, think of how you felt being bullied! Let’s face it, you were bullied at one time as well, you just didn’t know how to stop the madness! What was the one thing you wanted more? Comfort, kindness and to just be accepted for who you were! Am I right? Could you hurt this child? No? Then think of this child as a grown individual. Could you still hurt this person? Before you answer, remember, nothing has changed about this child, except their age! Same heart, same eyes, same feelings, and same innocence. Are you thinking?
We are not all Bully’s! Stop following in the footsteps of bullying! Show our young children and young adults, that it is okay to change a negative into a positive!
Set an example! Be an example!

STOP!!! How many times have you said that in your lifetime, when everything was getting to be too much? In case you are wondering, it is okay to do so! Yell it out loud! You are releasing the hold stress can have on you and your mental health!
When you are feeling the weight of stress, I encourage you to yell and scream, to release the grip! Once you do this, let the healing begin!😊
When we look at our lives, whether or not it is the people in our lives or our career for example, and they are causing us stress, it is okay to take a much needed break to heal yourself. We are under the impression, we need to “put up with” the toxic grip people and careers can place on us; NOT TRUE!! You have a life too! Take control, say, “STOP!” and take time for you!
For on the job stress, I’d like you to think about this for just a minute – whether it is a person or your career, where is it written you need to be placed under so much stress you can’t breathe, for the positive gain for them?
Once you are done thinking about that; think about this!! In the work place, it has become a practice for employees to take “health and safety”, “workplace harassment”, and “other miscellaneous, on the job related, get a long with others, etc.” courses as part of the “have too” in order to be employed! They have done their job in having you take these prerequisites, now take what you have learned from those and let it work for you!
You have more support than you think!
I say, “STOP! To anything that places an “unnecessary” grip on our stress levels! Enough already! Live, Love, and Laugh your way through anything or anyone who crosses your path with ill-intentions! Take hold of your life! You have options out there!
Live the life you are passionate about!

The one thing I have learned in my 50 years; the beauty of Wisdom should be celebrated! My Eyes Are Open!
I look at the age of 50, not in being old, but instead of having more experience in life to be comfortable with the Wisdom I have gained. My Eyes Are Open!
Every single day, there is always someone who makes me shake my head at how they respond in such a negative way; by watching these people gives me even more Wisdom. My Eyes Are Open!
I see a little child who has more common sense than some people out there, who like to think they “know it all”. I gain Wisdom from this little soul. My Eyes Are Open!
I watch, I listen, I learn, and I pay attention to my surroundings; I gain more Wisdom. My Eyes Are Open!
My heart continues to feel every emotion = My Eyes Are Open!
You don’t need to see in order to have your eyes open; listen to your heart! Listen to your heart; you will gain Wisdom and your eyes will be opened!

In preparing for The Good Vibes Only Roadshow North American Tour (we still have 5 years before we hit the road), we decided to become familiar with the RV lifestyle now!
In a couple of weeks, we will have a trailer set up at one of our local RV sites; even though it is only 10 minutes away from where we live, it will become our “getaway” in the evenings and on weekends.
When you are making plans for either retirement or a large goal, I feel it is important to start familiarizing yourself with all the pro’s and con’s of the bigger picture. For us, we have decided, this is a need in our lives; we need to create our getaway to not only rejuvenate (which is a necessity in life) but to also continue our journey with finding peace and sharing with others.
We are looking forward to not only being there, but creating a place that is filled with creativity and happiness.
You don’t necessarily need to buy a trailer and find an RV location to create your getaway; you can create your getaway with what suits your likes as well. Whether your getaway is camping, weekend retreats, spa visits, retail therapy (a shopping weekend), or simply a room in your home that is used strictly for your hideout, it is all about getting creative with your space and what brings you peace in rejuvenating yourself.
Diving deep within yourself to find what is important to you! Focus on what brings you happiness and then go for it!
Life is short, what are you waiting for!

Life’s Daily Menu consists of many things; work, family, friends, hobbies, goals, responsibilities, finances, etc! Are you starting to feel full yet?
I decided to become creative with my life; I created a “menu” for myself, so that my days became more enjoyable, more fun, and just interesting! Just like looking at a menu in a restaurant! What stands out, what draws my attention, and what will make my life more fulfilled!
When I started using this approach, and when the odd negative situation would arise, I would, literally “sweeten” it up! Just like eating food that isn’t so appealing; for me anything that makes my lips pucker, needs a little sweetener!
Here is an example:
When approached by a person who is angry, I would stop, “invite” them to sit down, smile at them, and hear them out. In a way, it is just like letting a fine wine age, or if you are a meat lover, letting it marinate. You are providing this beverage or food, time to “do its thing” in order to get better! Just like anyone who needs to vent; they need to say what they need to, in order to feel better. You are giving this person their uninterrupted “time” to do so!
I feel, everyone needs their own Daily Menu! Create your menu that appeals to you, include items that make you happy, healthy, and brings you peace! Get creative with Life!

Just a thought for the day…
As I’ve been creating my blog posts, the thought of creating a “rehab for stress” swirled around in my mind.
When stress takes over our lives, “some” dive into drugs and alcohol to cope. Rehab for drugs and alcohol have been very popular due to the increase in life struggles, stress on the job, and in general, drug and alcohol use. I often wondered, why a Spa seemed to be the only alternative for stress and relaxation; why not a Rehab for Stress! Why not have an option for people to attend a rehab for stress before the drugs and alcohol kick in?
I feel it is so important to learn more about coping with stress in a healthy way, rather than “thinking” drugs and alcohol are the only alternative. Some people have so much stress, they could use a place to go to, to not only rejuvenate, but learn how to cope at the same time.
We see commercials on television for rehab centers helping people with addictions, but you never seem them for learning to cope with stress. At least, we don’t where we live! If they do exist, then they definitely need more “air time” on television!!
Yes, I know part of the rehab for drug and alcohol use has a “coping with stress” component, but I would like to think having a rehab that is 100% based on helping people to cope with stress who “are not” on drugs or alcohol would be beneficial. Why does a person have to have addictions to enter a rehab to help them deal with their lives?
Rehabilitate your life and your patterns to help deal with stress!
I like to look outside the box and see where we can really help people deal with their challenges, before it is too late. More options, the better!

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.
