The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – A Dream Can Come True

I have come to the conclusion that nothing can stop you – A Dream Can Come True!

We may get started on living our “dream” to find yet another roadblock in life!  We just need to put on our Marvel costume of choice😉😉 , while we are flying over yet another challenge!!  Not to worry; let these roadblocks help build your character while you are becoming more and more accepting.  Stare at these challenges, give them a wink, and move forward!

The bottom line is this:

We cannot let anything, and I mean ANYTHING get in the way of making our dreams come true!  We may have to sacrifice staying at home, staying away from friends and family, and staying away from life as we knew it, but this is temporary!

Take this time to dive into your dream from a different perspective!  A planning perspective!  This is your time to harness absolutely everything needed to continue with your dreams in life.  It is time to perhaps, do more researching, reach out to those in the industry you are interested in (trust me, they have lots of time to answer any questions you may have), plan your steps, join some networks or groups, and create that step-by-step guide to Reaching Your Dreams!

This is your creative time, your visualization time, time for you to look back and see if you need to make any changes so that you can achieve your dreams, and time to actually “enjoy” each step of the way (we tend to forget to enjoy each stage).

This is your time!  Enjoy your dreams!  Wrap yourself up in every day knowing you are that much closer to achieving your dreams.  This time in your life, has been placed before you to gain wisdom, to gain gratitude for each day, to appreciate those in your life just a little bit more than you already do, and to become just a little bit more humble.

Your dreams can come true!  Stay Positive!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – We Are Learning!

During this time in our lives, we as a family, are learning!  We are going through, what I like to refer to it as,  a reality check!

How quickly life can change, out of our control.  How quickly you can be working your dream job and then poof, your not!  How quickly you can own a thriving business, the surprise it’s gone!  What we think of as normal, is now so far out of reach (for now!)

However, there is a better way of looking at it!

I want to make sure you understand, we are all doing this together!  This is why I am sharing with you, what I’ve learned and how it has comforted me.  There will be options for you to consider if you are needing them.

Yes, there is no hiding it, there is loss all over the World; that is our new reality.  Loss does not have to remain loss!  Loss is a time to get creative, not just in work, but in your lifestyle.

Start planning for a simple future!  Do we need all those bills?  Do we need a high mortgage?  Do we need to pay an even higher rent to cover someone else’s mortgage and expenses?  Do you feel trapped knowing you will still need to pay these things?  I haven’t even spoke about Gas and Power bills yet…guess what I don’t feel I need too…they are still there!

However, the answer to all of that is NO!

You have options!  The question is, are you willing to live a more simple life in order to not have the pressure of a huge financial load?

My family and I, have taken the past month, to look at our lives, and to find ways of cutting costs.  Minimize life!

We have been researching different “home” options out there and to be honest, they give me more excitement to look forward too one day.  Everything from full-time RV living (mind you, there are currently very minimal choices in that department for people to stay at), shipping container homes (supplies can be recycled to finish the inside of the container), renting land to place trailers or shipping containers on, Yurt’s, tiny homes, and commune living (not religious commune’s but that is your choice) where you rent land or buy farm land “together” with friends or family and place numerous trailers, containers, etc. on the land and have a community garden, laundry, etc.

The lives we live now, have taught us that being humble in our approach is a gift!  We are going to go back to living a simple life.  We have no detailed answers as to all the questions in how we are going to do this, or which option we are going to take, but at least we have decided to live a life where we are at Peace.

This lifestyle is not for everyone, but we have learned, the last thing we want to worry about is astronomical loss.  We are all going through that now, we don’t want to go through it again.  Living having learned valuable lessons is a Gift!  We are going to make sure we share that gift with our experiences to as many people as possible.

Keep Sharing The Love!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Pink Flamingo’s at the Campsite!

This is the time of year, in our neck of the woods (cottage country) where we are from, where lots and lots of campers, families using their cottages, and full-time RV families, will be using the endless amount of campsites in our Province of Ontario.

Well, lets just say, “plans have changed for the majority of these families”.  Although, for now these sites are not listed as “essential”, there will be a time where they will be.  When you think about it, a very high percentage of campers are living the “full-time RV lifestyle” and need to be able to park their “homes” somewhere.

We need to be able to get our Pink Flamingo’s out of storage and display them as they should be!!  Right in front of our home at camp! 😉😉

My family and I have a 5th wheel at our camp, however we are unable to access it due to the latest happenings in the news today.  In fact, we are not even allowed to move our trailer at all; we are only allowed to make appointments in the event we need to remove items from “out of” our trailer.  But I am not complaining; instead I am grateful the campgrounds are following the Government orders.  The more people that don’t follow, then the longer it will take for us to get back to the lives we knew.

I have one little suggestion that may help while we are riding out this latest wave.

If you are able to, and what we all need to do as one large Team in the World, is this:

If you have a home that has a larger driveway, yard, or even acreage, please offer some “temporary” space to these full-time RV families, with the stipulation that social distancing must be followed.  Not all RV families, have extended families they can stay with, nor do they have the large amounts budgeted to pay for the rental of homes or apartments.  That’s one of the reasons why they made the choice to RV full-time; works better in a budget.

Please do an act of kindness for these families; one act of kindness goes a very long way.  Eventually, once things get a bit more organized, the Governments will have some adjusted rules to perhaps make it easier for “seasonal” campers to set up their homes again.  To be honest, it is no different than living in a regular house; you still have neighbors to watch out for and to practice social distancing with, so it shouldn’t be a problem for RV families who have been doing this full-time.

Lets make sure we work together to help free the Pink Flamingo’s once again, to brighten up this World and show that it is still okay to live life, regardless if you live in a house, apartment or trailer.

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 – Summer’s Cozy Corner – An Introverts Perspective

We have a new addition to tell you about!

Summer’s Cozy Corner

This site is focused on bringing great “lifestyle” information to you, based on an introverts perspective.  We have had a lot of fun putting this together and hope that you will enjoy, Summer’s Cozy Corner!

ABOUT SUMMER’S COZY CORNER – http://www.summerscozycorner.com

 

I am introverted. If you meet me in person, I may offer a small wave as a “hello” or “nice to meet you”. At the same time my mind is constantly filled with ideas and concepts that I can’t get out fast enough. I’ve always felt that I had so much to say but could never spit it out properly.

Especially in writing, it is not my forte. It has taken me a long time to figure out how to go about this blog. Probably about 5 years I’d say. I’d have an outburst of ideas and simultaneously get overwhelmed trying to put them in order so that it would make sense. Frustration would ensue and I would step away from it for months. I’ve apparently had a breakthrough, finally!!

I have many interests in my life that I am equally passionate about. I could not just pick one focus. I’ve dubbed this the Cozy Corner because one constant in my world is that I always seek comfort. In one way or another. Whether it’s food, shopping, rearranging the house, I am doing these things simply to feel better. It works every time, so why not talk about it full time!

Usually it takes a spark of inspiration to get the ball rolling. Once it does get going, I could go on for hours. Long story short, in telling my stories, I hope that they spark an inspiration in your world.

I will be publishing my first book – Love Grandma by Summer’s Cozy Corner.  I hope you will all follow my site, as I will be sharing some of my Grandma’s favorite recipes that made her family feel full of love!

Please feel free to follow Summer’s Cozy Corner at http://www.summerscozycorner.com and share with all your friends, family, and followers.

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Healing the Soul

There come’s a time in our lives, where we just need to sit back, be quiet and just listen to our soul.  Listen to what it is trying to tell you.  Does it need healing?

I know throughout my life, I’ve had to take those moments to just listen to what my soul was saying to me, instead of blocking it out!  When your soul needs some healing is when you start to feel overwhelmed.  For me, that is the first sign, I need to take a break from those around me and from situations that are causing me grief.

For example, when you are trying to just talk to someone and no matter what, the finger is always pointed at you?  They do not care to listen?  It’s always your fault?  Well that is one of the signs that it is time to take a break, reevaluate different approaches to take, and to also give that other person in your life a break.  Nothing gets resolved when you don’t acknowledge when it is time to step away and just breathe.

Heal Your Soul!

During this time, you may see that just maybe, you were 50% wrong, but because you acknowledged you needed a break, made you heal enough to see the other persons point of view.  Yes!  This can be done!  Other people can be right in their convictions!  Even if we don’t want to accept the fact, you are not always right!

How boring it would be if we had all the answers!  There would be nothing to learn!

There is nothing more attractive than a person who can own up to when they were wrong, or they reacted badly, or they caused someone to feel sad.  When someone is sorry and owns the fact they could have handled things differently, don’t continue to make them feel bad, but instead accept their apology with compassion and empathy.  You will see, that relationship will be renewed and healed.

Both souls will feel refreshed!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – What Is Your Biggest Dream!

I’ve had a lot of time to think over the past two weeks, and to be honest with you, it is funny how just two weeks can change my entire perspective of my hopes and dreams.

One of my dreams in life is, I’ve always wanted to inspire and to encourage others to find the “positive” in life.  I suppose, watching Oprah, Ellen, and reading a truck load of self-help books, has fueled me with the passion to help others find their own outlet to happiness.

Personally, I feel it takes not just a Village to help others who are struggling, but it takes an entire World to stay on the positive track.

My dreams in life, have changed.  They have changed for the better, as if they are now dreams which are there because of wisdom.  There is so much I’d like to do, and so many I’d like to help.  Over the next while, I will be writing my “dream” list and making sure, that I check off one thing at a time each and every single day.

My dreams are to write more books, to blog more inspiring posts, to eventually travel with the Good Vibes Only Roadshow and meet people who need to share their own story.  My dreams are endless, but they are changing to become more realistic.

We all have dreams; what are some of yours?  Don’t let fear stop you from dreaming.

This experience we are all going through is “temporary”; keep planning, keep dreaming, and keep focusing on a brighter day!

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Full Of Creativity

Along with all of you, I’ve taken the past 2 weeks to let everything sink in.  The shock of how quick life can change is slowly going away, but it has left me with a sense of wanting to take this time to grow and to share with you what I’ve learned so far.

Side note:  expect a lot of blog posts from me 😉

I’ve learned that creativity is more than just finding a hobby or project to do, but instead it is essential for mental health.  Finding something that brings a smile to your face is very important; we cannot fall into the trap of fear.

Yes, things are very real out there, but if we listen to what has been suggested to us in staying in our home, then we will be doing our part in ridding our World of this virus.  I feel it is a small sacrifice, in order to save our World.

Okay, so that’s all I want to say about the “v” word, it has temporarily taken over and I’m not going to allow it to do that, especially here on my blog!  So, here is some creative positive options for you, that I’m also going to harness:

Baking

Cooking something NEW!

Coloring

Painting

Crafting

Changing Old Clothing into something fun (costume)

Sewing

Reading

Journaling

Writing a Novel

Puzzles

The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Just Going To Have Some Fun!

I made a promise to myself, to start each and every day, with the mindset of having some fun!

Everything doesn’t need to be so serious all the time!  Yes, there are already issues in the World and in our lives that requires serious concentration, but then there are the simple things in life that can welcome some fun into them!

You’ve all heard the saying, “don’t sweat the small stuff”, well I’m here to tell you it is true!  Instead of sweating the small stuff, just add some fun into the equation!  Smile at the little things!

I suppose you could say, “I had an awakening”, but to be honest, I quite like finding fun in my days!  Whether it is with fun music, in my writing, and even in looking outside.  Trust me, that is the test right there (looking outside); we get 6 months of snow and cold temperatures, so if I can find fun in that, then there is hope for you to find at least a little fun in your day!

I have fun in looking forward to the different seasons coming our way, I have fun in looking forward to writing more books, I have fun in looking forward to awakening my senses, and I look forward to watching my family find fun in their days!

You can find fun in so many things:

In a walk, in exercise, in a hobby, in a meal, in music, in a movie, in reading, in writing, in a joke…the list is endless!

Have some fun!  Smile, laugh, and enjoy your day!
