Need your help!

Here it goes, Lights, Camera and Action! Livelove’s YouTube channel is about to go Crazy! I get so excited every time I think about it. However, I have a few issues, that I could honestly, use your help with. As a new on-line business, with a mission, that contains a great deal of LOVE, for YOU…I am struggling with a few decisions. Therefore, I wondered if you would like to be a part of the ‘decision’ making process. If so, continue to read and participate, if not we will catch you later (you might want to skip over reading the rest of this one). If you already know about Livelove and are interested in having an input, as our family (business) grows and brands themselves, then skip down to number five.



  1. We have the business registered and services in place.
  2. Trademark for Freddy the Pink Flamingo, is all completed (those of you who helped choose him, Thank you).
  3.  Slogan is being registered as we speak.
  4. Services: One on one coaching, professional motivational workshops, for those companies who need extra help with company moral and team work. A new e-book and audible book with the Happy Curriculum embedded into the series, to allow you to learn and enjoy, at your own pace, is almost completed. Educational Seminar for school districts to educate the children, on choosing life/living, rather than suicide. Some exciting new items will be available shortly :).
  5. So what am I missing? Your input on all of this! To be exact…
    • Where would you like to attend a ‘How to’ ‘Be Happy’ seminar/workshop? Is there a preferable location for example? Would you sign up to attend a Livelove seminar in Kauai, Outer Banks North Carolina, Los Angeles? Texas? Or Kansas City? Or in another country? Maybe Italy? or Mexico? You tell me, list it in the comments on Facebook, WordPress, messenger or email us… I want to know where you would like for our event planning specialist to begin focusing?
    • Last but not least…Do you like our newest member to Livelove LLC? The only problem is she is nameless, for now. Therefore, I did a mini photo shoot for you! She will be creating educational videos for our ‘kiddos’ who are watching Livelove!
    • This is your chance to give a thumbs up or down to _______________, our newest member. Again you can comment on WordPress, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, messenger, email us at, or check into our website and leave us a message.
    • Questions to answer:
      • What should her name be? I have Momma Teena, Pinky, Pinkalicious (this one scares me a bit, sounds a little umm, IDK), or my middle name is Gay after my aunt, I could use her name which means ‘happy’. Or, you provide suggestions.
      • Do you like the pink hair? For educational videos?
      • Glasses? or no glasses?
      • Type of outfit she should have made? (If you didn’t know Physical Fit Flower the Clown was me, but I had to move away from being a white face clown, too many horror films 😦 .
      • How long of videos do you prefer? Five minutes, fifteen or twenty-five…we realize when guest are on the show, they may be over twenty-five, but regularly? (Educational Videos, songs, how to’s, interesting journeys, and much more)
      • Do you think we should post once a day, week bi-weekly or monthly?
  6. Anything else you can think of or suggest for us to help you, let us know!

Livelove is super excited to share with you in 2018! Looking forward to meeting you in person! I will announce her name as soon as we know the final decision.

God Bless!






Happy Coaching 101 (Day 2, free trial)

This segment was for a beautiful woman, who was struggling with depression, divorce, and detoxing from a toxic relationship. She has been through a great deal this past year. However, I know, her messages assisted her in more ways than one.

My friend, you are worthy of being happy and you deserve it. At this time it is time for you to let go of a lot of crud!! It is the time for you to begin allowing, receiving, and let go!! Life is meant to be happy!!!! Nothing else matters!! Oh sure you will have down times, but they are simple reminders of what you do not want!!! The difference is now you know the reason for these paths of least resistance (Abraham-Hicks) therefore, any negativity or hurtful times will only last a short amount of time! Once you recognize why you are feeling this resistance, then you change it.

You are amazing and I know how difficult it can be to let go and accept that life is so simple but it is!!!! The meaning of life is….hmmm think it’s time to figure that out for yourself.




A Bit Sentimental Today! 3 hrs. @ Gym…

You won’t believe what I did today! Since 7, yes seven in the morning I have been at the gym!! I know that sounds crazy, but I literally spent three hours there. AND…when I left I thought to myself, if I wasn’t so darn hungry, I would not be leaving.

Eric and I realize, we are typical Americans, who set crazy New Year’s Resolutions and yes, you guessed it, decided to join a Fitness Gym! However, I truly don’t think that was Eric’s ‘true’ thought about this ordeal. He says we need to get in shape, because he quit smoking this year and you know what that does to your body. (I know it is terrific when anyone quits smoking, but it isn’t the easiest when trying to maintain your younger figure LOL).

However, my belief is he wanted ME to get back into the gym. NO! Ladies do not get offened thinking he is insulting me, REMEMBER who the writer is! (If you don’t know me, here is a little clue, I am one of those…who has a fabulous husband and wonderful life and I am super grateful!) Anywhoo, I do believe Eric, secretly realized I couldn’t maintain a lifestyle of eating, watching television and/or attending a nightly pub for a few drinks day in and day out. Don’t get me wrong, I love being with him so much, that I will attempt to lead whatever his lifestyle may be, but I fear it was wearing on me.

He started talking about looking into a gym shortly after our trip to Hawaii. I blew it off and didn’t think much about it. During our stay on the farm I didn’t have one spare moment.  I was either running to Louisville to see Ashby, meeting with friends, hanging out with mom or Nick, meeting about Livelove  or working with Kentuckiana News. He even mentioned how happy and busy I was. Then we came out here, had a lovely evening with our friends the Tovey’s and Lebrannos. The next, first week of 2018, I was kind of sad. Not seriously depressed or anything, just a little sad. Wanted to stay in bed, didn’t even feel like writing! I just felt blah. He took me out to see some of our friends at the bar. That was fun, but I continued to feel like something was missing.

Friday morning, Eric wakes me up and says, “Hey, we are being a guest at Lifetime Sunday. Okay?”

I rolled over and rubbed my eyes, “Okay? You sure you want to do this?”

Of course he blew it off and was rambling something as he left like, “Of course, I have always wanted to walk into a gigantic gym and feel wonderful…blah, blah, blah.”

Even when Sunday came, I must admit I tried to back out of it! I was like naaa, we don’t have to do this. Although I was not saying it outloud, Eric heard me, somehow. I know he heard what I was thinking because he said, “Oh, no! You aren’t backing out, we are going and at least look at it.”

I reluctantly, agreed. At first, I felt like a nobody, walking into a gym and thinking, “Everyone is going to laugh at me or stare at me.”

I remembered my years as an aerobics and dance instructor. Anytime, I saw someone coming in new, I would quickly approach them to ensure they felt important. I never let a new person come into the gym without me introducing myself and making them feel welcome. Truthfully, many of the country clubs or fitness clubs I worked at, did not care about customer service. They almost had a snobbish feeling about them. That is probably why I was super sensitive towards the new people.

However, this trip was NICE! It was different for me to have Eric with me. I told him I couldn’t think of a time we had ever been in a gym together. He said, “That’s because I have never been in one. I worked out at football in our fitness room, but nothing like this.”

After I paused a minute, I realized he was correct. The reason I couldn’t remember was because he hadn’t come with me. I was amazed. I allowed him to do most of the talking, question asking. At the end he said, “Yes, we will join today.”

If you can imagine my face. I think my jaw dropped to the floor. I sat there and looked at this man, whom I have adored for many years, we have been best friends forever and I taught fitness classes, gosh, for at least fifteen years of our marriage, and I was speechless. As the customer service rep went out of his office, I continued to stare at him in almost a panic! LMAO. Then I said, in a sweet, calm, extremely quiet voice, “Are you sure?”

He went on to explain why he made his decision and how it was at a low price for the ‘New Year’s People’ like us. He also continually said, “Hey and there are no annual fees or contracts. So, if I get too busy, I can drop anytime I want.”

I began to lighten up. He was correct, we were in need of some health changes, to keep up with all the fun activities we want to do. We set up appointments and were on our way. It was fun! We began meal planning, as well as prepping, immediatly. He began working out last night. Yes, he whinned a little bit, but it was a cute whine. Truthfully, he liked it. I am not sure it is as far as he ‘loved’ it, but he seemed to be okay.

THEN TODAY HAPPENED! Oh my, let me tell you my friends, I am on wave nine! (Instead of clouds, I love waves, so I am on wave nine). After reading this portion of my post, you will see why I am pretty sure, WE joined the gym.

I arrived at 6:45 AM. Completed the assessment. Then thought, hey, I could go do some physical therapy, in the pool. As I approached the lap pool, I will admit, I felt a little bit uncomfortable. I kept my towle wrapped around me, sat on the edge, and slid my toes in the 88 degree lane, filled with water. The water felt so good. I began with a few, easy laps. Stretching my arms out as far in front of me as they would go, then thrusted my legs behind me to propel me a little further. I could almost feel each water molecule, spinning as my body displaced them, creating a wonderful feeling of freedom. No restraints, no worries about falling, my leg didn’t ache nor did I feel as though it needed protection.

An hour went by and I was almost ready to go when one of the sweetest ladies approached me and said, “Would you like to join us for water aerobics?”

She introduced herself and I replied with, “YES, yes I would like to join.”

Before, I knew it I had been at the gym for three hours. I felt and feel TERRIFIC! I met several people and we plan to meet up once again, tomorrow.

Now, you see why, I have my conspiracy? My honey, does want to improve his flexibility. He does have a multitude of goals, but I think he had other motives, as well. While I was writing this, he called and asked me all about today. I know I sounded like a little kid with my, and thens, or next. I described my entire morning with out taking a breath.

Why did I feel compelled to share this with you? It is actually for both you and me, this time. As our company evolves and we continue to look for more and more techniques to help you find your happiness, I feel that this new/old lifestyle will attract more greatness for us to share. As I learn I will continue to share with you.

The greatest thing I learned today. Surround yourself with people who want to improve, and the desire will become contagious! When greatness is all around you, you will want to be great too.

I am a bit sentimental today, but it is in a good way. I am grateful for my life, my husband, my children, mother, entire family, friends, my talents, gifts and more, than I could ever list, without boring you to tears.

You are already GREAT! Just allow yourself to be.

More recent Thanksgiving Past…

As most of you know Eric and I went to Hawaii to see mom and dad as well as, celebrate our twenty fifth anniversary. What you may not know is it was their forty ninth Wedding Anniversary on November 2nd! It was awesome. Therefore, Eric and I, took them out to eat for a special dining experience, on the ocean to celebrate.

Betty and I got all dressed up in our aloha dresses, adorned our beautiful outfits with Jewlry, by none other than Beautiful Bling by Betty. We were the cats meow!

As we drove up to the restaurant the torches were lit and the dancing fire illuminated the walk way, to a ambiance for love and romance. Ocean breeze, family and friends. Both our heads were spinning. Stop! Selfie time. I took a group photo with my handy dandy selfie stick. I really think we were floating on a cloud of happy emotions, to the extreme that we began reminiscing about times past, that we were all together and how wonderful it was.

Now let me stop right here! Don’t take me the wrong way, we all had a wonderful, fabulous, delicious dinner that night on November 2nd, 2017. But read on and see if you can see why I blame the ‘ambiance’ of this romantic evening on the stupidity, Betty and myself were about to begin and continue.

As we told our friends, who were joining us, about the different family gathering memories, we had. Everyone could feel the flucuations of happiness then the wave of, just a smidge, of sadness. (Not because we were unhappy now, but sometimes it is sad when so many traditions have changed).

That’s when it happened. I had one martini and I don’t know which one of us spoke up first, but one of, Betty or I, said, “We should have an old fashion Thanksgiving dinner. Mmmm all that good food, Uncle Ben’s Wild Rice, gravy, broccoli casserole. That is it.! Let’s do it!”

We both so eagerly shook our heads in an accepting manner of how ‘good’ of girls and wives, as we truly are! Almost as if all of the grand things we have done for our families, came down to the most memorable times.

The guys attempted to talk us out of this grandious, hair brain scheme of ours. But no, no they weren’t talking us out of it! We were sure this would be a fun time and we were jumping in with both feet first!

As the days and nights went by, we were busy, busy. Hoola class, beach hoping and bike riding. Shopping and enjoying each other’s company. Until, Dum Diddy dum!!!! (Drum roll please) The day for Thanksgiving Dinner had arrived! Gosh has it already been two weeks? Naaaaa surely not!

The best way I can explain the affects of Hawaii is; every inch of your body is JELLO. Worries cross your mind, but flee as quick as they enter. If one thing I know, for sure, is going backwards to ‘The Good Ole Days’ isn’t as much fun as soaking up the sun in our ‘BEST’ days!

At least I felt like that. I was unsure if Betty felt like this so, I rolled out of bed and began to create a list. The entire time I was writing I would write a dish and then write beside it a label…difficult or simple. Which meant I was already back pedaling from all of this ‘traditional’ crud. Yes, it was fun, but it was a great deal of work, especially for Betty and I because we had always been the two who seemed to expect ourselves, to work alot, to please as many as possible.

Now don’t get me wrong, we have always enjoyed our families and have both taken pride in our efforts to open our homes and demonstrate loving hospitality. (Of course she is better at being more hospitable than me, but she is a better cook too, so who cares, I love and accept myself lol).

However, at this point I was pretty sure we were both over the ‘Old Fashion’ Thanksgiving dinner. When she saw my list she began to laugh and laugh. She was like this is alot of work isn’t it?

Many funny epiphanies came to me, during my process, of getting ready and I shared them with Ray and Eric. Both men quickly reminded me,”We tried to talk you both out of this! But nooooo you insisted!”

I stood there similar to a statue, listening to everyone’s chatter. How true were their claims? In all actuality , extremely true! Brutally, honestly, TRUE!

We had done this to ourselves!

Now let me wrap up the story part, before I bring it to full circle!

We had the best visit with mom and dad than ever before. We both truly enjoyed being in their presence and in paradise. Betty and I cooked a Thanksgiving meal ‘traditional’ Drake’s style!

Of course, I assisted, but my dishes fell under the simple or some even bought category. However, we pulled it off! It was the most mouth watering, delicious, fabulous, exquisite meal I have had in quite sometime.

I am grateful for the entire vacation and will cherish the sweet memories throughout our visit.

However, I learned some valuable lessons from the entire dinner ordeal. I feel it’s best to bullet them…

  • You don’t always have to relive a tradition to enjoy the memory.
  • When you are feeling stressed about something almost like a regret, talk to that person, be honest. You never know they may feel the same way.
  • Sometimes what we think makes other people happy, is not real, ask them if it is something they feel emotional about. For example: our husbands could have cared less, what we cooked, they were grateful we cooked at all.
  • When looking back at a memory and it feels all warm and fuzzy enjoy it, but ensure before you say you want to relive it, you remember the entire story.
  • For example: I love my children so much and I must say I enjoyed raising them, but to say I would want to relive it would be ludicrous.
  • Although we were resistant the day of, we readjusted and shopped one day and cooked the next. Allow yourself readjustment time. If it is a bad time in your life pause and allow yourself to rethink and readjust, how you feel. (No this wasn’t a bad time in our life. It was actually funny how great of a time it truly was, but this works if you are having a worse time, than we were).
  • Feel it? Feel just how you feel right now. If you don’t like this feeling, then ask yourself, how do I want to feel?
  • What will bring you closer to that?

Thank you for reading this posting.

I am truly grateful for you! Wish you the best.

Written by: Momma Teena

Let’s do this!

Ever wake up with a sense of determination for whatever reason? Like you dream about something and it impresses you, so much, you want to ensure to remember, every little detail? That was my dreams last night! Last few postings I have discussed some ‘new’ techniques, I had learned from Louise Hayes. You lay down, speak outloud, what you are grateful for. Also, before you jump out of bed, inhale, exhale, and count your blessings one by one. And don’t forget the best most delicious of all…plan your day, but keep it light, to ensure you ALLOW the happy, little stops, throughout the journey.

I think I have now said, “I love, accept and appreciate myself over a thousand times, since I began, last Monday.

Pssst…I will tell you a little secret, it has been simply amazing!!!!! Has every little adventure been perfectly planned? No! Have I been smiling like a cat ate the canary every moment, actually, Yes I probably have.

You might ask how? How has it been simply amazing? I have observed a change in my trajectory of the way I visualize, the way I speak about me, the way I handle others conversation and most importantly, I am continually presented with more and more terrific opportunities.

No, Jimmy Fallon’s producer hasn’t called, YET!! However, the other special events, have been simply precious and awesome.

(I must go off on a rambling session for one minute, just read along, it will make you laugh and laugh).

The Jimmy Fallon discussion has turned into a funny story. The other day I was being a little more daring with my writings and tweets. You can call it a little frisky. I tweeted that Donald Trump should let me interview him AND I was ready to have the Jimmy Fallon show call me, to be a guest. If nothing else to introduce, ME. lol

Yes, I have a published book, a business (that is kind of sitting out on the Web like a pet rock, for now, holidays )

Yes, I have a wonderful message for the world. But I do realize, I have to do some more leg work before the big Cahooga!!! Jimmy Fallon.

However… (here is the funniest part of my day) I tweeted a few tweets, wrote about him and then about two hours later, I was writing, and my phone rang. (No big deal, right?) I looked at my phone and it said New York City!!!!

I heard that commercial, “NEW YORK CITY?”

I was like oh my, my little old tweets to my over 300 followers lol, must have traveled fast!!! Hahahaha, if you are not laughing yet, it’s time to begin!!! 300 followers, that’s comical in itself, can’t wait until it is 10,000. Why? I really don’t know why, just because.

Yes, I starred at the number at least through five rings. I planned what I was going to say, how and oh don’t forget to ask questions, Teena. Don’t scream in the phone! This isn’t the publishers Clearing House, even though to me it felt like it!!!! I guess you know after five rings the phone usually switches to a voice mail. It did!

No message. Hmmmm, they are probably going to call back, due to, they are so busy and all. I seriously spent the next hour writing down responses, practicing in the mirror, I even returned to 13 year old, Teena, and pretended I was speaking with Johnny on his show. Minus the colored cigarettes. Yes, as a child I would catch a glimpse of ‘Johnny’, while at a friend’s house and then come home, curl up in front of the vanity in my bathroom and light a colored cig, which had a gold tip. I would smoke it and blow out the smoke so elegantly and pretend I was responding to Johnny. (I know I was too young, but I was dedicated to playing the role). This is one reason, I feel so strongly about what we as entertainers do, I was one of those kids 😉.

Anywhoo, back to the phone call! I went about my day, checking the phone, practicing my words carefully and then a New York number called again. This time I was on it!!!! I picked that phone up, pressed the button, Hello…long pause on the other end.

Ohhh I am so excited, I knew it, in my head I am scrambling for a good date for me, to be a guest. Actually, if they would have asked, “Can you be here, tonight?” I would have been on a plane in an hour, lmao!

But we all know that wouldn’t happen, just a funny thought. (You probably already know what happen next, but I will complete the story).

Finally, after the long pause, I hear a loud room full of operators and the sweet lady says,”Can you hear me?”(in her sweet attempt to speak fluent English she couldn’t ask the question well enough to receive what she needed) Yes, she was attempting to get me to say, “Yes.” So she can record it and try to use it for identity theft or whatever, I don’t know what reason!!!.

However, instead of saying, “Yes.” I said, “What? Hello are you with the Jimmy Fallon Show?”

She repeated the question, “Hello, can you hear me?” I didn’t say yes, (I had figured this out, but it was good practice, for when the producers do call), I proceeded to say, “No, but it’s okay can you hear me? ”

She stammered around trying to find a cue card, how to confuse me or divert my crazy talk! However, that didn’t stop me!!! “Ohhh you really are from the show!!! What? You would like for me to be a guest on the Jimmy Fallon show? What day is best for me? Hmmm I love Mondays.”

The entire time this lady is attempting to be persistant!!! However, I can hear her voice becoming irritated. “Mam! No, CAN YOU HEAR ME?”

Now let’s freeze this for one second! Obviously, lady I can hear you. No, I am not going to say yes. Why wouldn’t you give up! She finally became super frustrated with me and hung up, abruptly I might add.

Well!! I guess that was a good practice run. You know, I don’t feel bad. And to be honest I have laughed and laughed about the event.

Okay, I hope you had a good laugh, as well. Take time, today, to pause and be grateful.

Then everytime you think of it say, “I love and accept myself” or “I love and appreciate myself.” It is simple.

However, the impact on your life is POWERFUL!

No, just from beginning this process, I may not have received ‘that call.’ However, it is on its way and when it arrives, with all my practice, I will be READY! Life is meant to be enjoyed. You are wonderful, don’t forget that!

Livelove & Carryon

Ohhh PS. I have finally created or been divinely given a new writing and recording name: Momma Teena! I will write about it later on!

On a role…

Roll or role? Which is it? I have no idea, but I love them both. I woke up this morning with the most clear and intuitive thoughts. It was similar to a fog clearing and lifting from the river as the sun, peeks over the Kentucky rolling hills.

I promised myself, before I went to sleep, today would be a new day. A day of new thoughts, ideas and intuition. I began with all my blessings. I counted them one by one and still counting, with every breath I take.

You see, I have been struggling with a little bit of self doubt and confusion. As my company, which is quickly evolving into our company (with new team members being added daily), evolves and is reinvented on a moment by moment basis, I struggle with the branding portion.

I have acquired some amazing gifts and messages, that I want to share with the world. In hopes to enrich the lives of all who experience this opportunity. Sounds like a Miss America Pageant answer to World Peace , I know! You don’t have to tell me.

Skip down to last three paragraphs, the message is at the end! It says you are AWESOME!

Ohhh, so you want to be another ‘guru’ of motivational speakers changing the world? Right? (You might ask).

Hmmmm, the truth is…well to be honest… (Pause, take a deep breath in and blow it all out)…My heart is beating so loud, I can’t hear the clicking of the key pad.

Yes! No and yes!

That sums it up. I hope you understand…

Okay, the truth is one day a friend of mine said, “What if, instead of expecting anything we wake up and be grateful for what we already have and lovingly accept the new, latest and greatest ‘best’ for us, that will arrive each day.”

This was a twist from any mind set I had ever expected. The law of attraction, with the law of allowing-receiving.

I know it seems too simple, but it’s better than the alternative of thinking or expecting all negative outcomes. This twist in my perspective truly assisted me in healing after a tragic accident. Led me to many adventures and most of all illuminated, who I am.

I have spent the year of 2017 developing, researching and experimenting with a wide variety of emotions and reactions, as well as, how to live the BEST possible life, I can live. I have identified my desires/dreams/goals, that will assist me in the ultimate outcome!

So why do you struggle with your company?

The answer is, I am still on the how! How do you be financially profitable, open a company that is based on a message, vision and a dream that is so big, it feels explosive, and yet difficult to attempt to, Brand it.

That’s where this promise, to myself, came in handy. I woke up clear! Created a plan, spent most of the day being super grateful, set a small schedule, to gather items for ‘The Big Day.’

Although, very little of my plans truly occurred today, I will say this day is another one for the blessed and memorable days. Not sure I can even describe it to create a clear understanding!

Does it really matter? No because my ‘role’ and my ‘roll’ just became greater than I had ever expected! I am in awe!

If you are struggling with self doubt, regroup. Pause, for one minute, then another. This too will pass. Begin to say out loud I Love and accept or approve of myself. As Louise Hayes explains it, “Say it 200 or 300 hundred times a day. Sing it.”

You are amazing! You are acceptable. You are ____________!!! Fill in your own blank.

Share your talents with the world, we need you and your knowledge.

Think loving thoughts, the best is yet to come!

God Bless!
