What’s your ‘Happy’ color? How to find it, if you don’t know…

Most do this naturally, but once you recognize the silent joy, something as simple as a color can bring you…life becomes magically COLORFUL!

Background: I began researching the color pink many years ago. How it increases sells, draws people in, & is an instant magnet. However, this research was to assist small business owners in growing their business, with colors.

Then I opened Livelove and entitled myself a Pinkologost, one who studies pink. At first it was kind of a joke, but as our business evolved, more & more request came in about the connection between color and joy.

That’s when I transitioned the pinkologist to a working title.

How colors can change Everything.

Throughout my research I would interview people who were bold in showing off their favorite color (like me) & those who seemed to be colorless.

I noticed those who had an idea of their favorite color/s seemed to be more at peace. All, had a sense of happiness & joy, which followed them, wherever they went. Those who were unaware of their favorite colors or tones, seemed to mimic the lack of color in their lives. They discussed gloom & doom topics & dismissed the thought that a COLOR could change their attitude.

How to find your color that brightens your life?

1. Become more aware of which ones you are attracted to.

2. When you see a color that draws you in (if possible) touch it, stare at it, & allow your emotions to take over.

3. Now begin to add that color or tone into your life. I use the term tone, as well, because I found that if someone loves blue, they have several blue hues, that make them smile. The same with me…I love one particular pink immensely, but I enjoy all tones of pink.

4. If you enjoy this a great deal, entitle yourself…a blueologist or like me a pinkologist! It means you study the color that brings you joy! (Doesnt that sound like fun?)

You don’t have to spray paint your hair for this to work! Lol!!!! I only do this occasionally, for a good laugh! But the amount of ‘pink’ in this picture does make me Smile.

Go ahead, begin to search for that color that can instantly put a smile on your face or comfort you from all types of harm.

Then begin to embrace and utilize your ‘color’. It becomes similar to a game of hide & seek. You will begin to buy those clothes that you are drawn to and yes you will be amazed at how many are based on your favorite color.

Happy Color Hunting!

How do you know what you want? & how to receive it…

How do you know what you want? By understanding what you love.

Begin with a quick list of what you KNOW, without question, that you love.

For example: Start saying what you love right now…GO

Name your children, family, friends, animated objects, activities, sports, travel, places, ect.

Please do not think about it too much, but rather enjoy and begin to shine brighter the more you list.

(The first time I did this I couldn’t stop. Throughout the day, I would remember more and my list kept growing. It is a fun activity.)

This beginning process is not a task to begin and end, but rather a continual process which grows and grows for you. Similar to a beautiful garden in Hawaii. Although there are specific growing seasons just like everywhere else, the abundance of vegetation growth is amazing and never ending. Therefore, you don’t focus on the lack of. Instead, the beauty of the over abundance & diversity, continues to fill the land of paradise. Same with LOVE.

Next, add to your questioning and list creating. Ask yourself, What do I want?

For example, I want a new car, a baby, a lover, a lifetime partner, joy, happiness, more abundance, more money, a new home, a new career, more friends, to be…

This list is the same as your love one, all you need to do is ramble it off. State your desires and as you continue to add new ones, allow yourself to ask.

Once you have began these two separate, but combined evolving lists, it’s now time to recognize what you have already accomplished with little to no effort.

By asking those two questions & allowing yourself to answer, freely…you have already accomplished:

1. Changing your mindset.

2. Redirected YOUR FOCUS from everyone else to just YOU!

3. Rediscovered many blessings you already have by creating your love list.

4. Recognized that asking for what you desire is due to creating your love list…which in turn creates,’Your Why!’

How do you know what you want?

A. Find what you love.

B. Find your desires.

C. Discover your, Why?

D. Allow your joy to over take you, as you combine the two lists…to understand Your Why.

For example: If you want to be a New York’s Best Seller, that is your desire. Why?

Because in your ‘love list’ you probably said, “I Love to help others.”

And you realize the NY’s Best Seller list will ensure that your writings will reach a wide variety of people.

You see, your why becomes unnecessary, after awhile. Almost like a silent step that you must take, but due to knowing your love & desires, the why step becomes automatic. Therefore, this process evolves into a FEELING activity.

The universe doesn’t care what your desires are. That’s why it is up to you to know what you love & desire. This way YOU are in control of YOUR LIFE and not tending to someone elses.

Have you already began your lists?

Do what you love & love what you do…isn’t this what we all ‘desire’? To be better?

Go for it, make your day, & begin to focus on what you really want! Leave the worries behind you. Focus on your own desires.

You have got this!

Delicious Individual Eating Traditions…I think I like that!

I think introducing a new concept is the best way to introduce a new writing/show/dance…Oh my the opportunities are abundant!

If you were to be sitting with me at this time, you would find a writer, smiling from ear to ear, typing away, in her beautiful, deep, pink Muu Muu. Yes, you read correctly my Muu Muu. However, it is only fitting for me to introduce my most exciting, a bit scary, extremely beneficial adventure, of my entire LIFETIME. 

My brain is racing. The house is quiet as a mouse, lights are dim…it is just you & me…and my computer. Oh and the dogs, cats…(Whisper), “I am stalling! Can you tell?” 

Big INHALE and now EXHALE, EXHALE, EXHALE, EXHALE…

I have written, created, and am now about to share with you…My GREATEST CREATION YET! The Podcast is entitled, “Muu Muu Talk With Teena.” The e-book, writings, club information will all be found here on the http://www.teenadrakeblog.com or Livelove & Carry On.

All of this information will be authentic, researched based by real people, just like you & me, and has been proven to improve your life. Although it is entitled DIET, Muu Muu Talk With Teena is designed for the betterment of our lives. Whether that be beauty, body, travel, parenting, love, money, law of attraction or mentally healthy topics…My promise is all of the information will be for you to receive and decide for yourself, if it is for you. 

As we keep growing we will continue to add services, which will assist you with your DIET plan. But beware, after you embark on this lifestyle, you will cringe at the thought of  returning to the ‘struggling’ to lose those twenty pounds, you have been losing and gaining your entire life. This particular mind set will disappear. In fact the terminology of struggling will be considering a life lesson. Because when we receive those ‘life lessons’ we rarely repeat them, in fear of feeling that struggle once again. Trust me.

Your new mind set will be filled with a deep love & appreciation for you. Yes, you will shape up and feel better than you have ever felt. Yes, people will notice and ask, “How you are losing the pounds?”

Yes, this is FUN! FUN! FUN! So if you are ready for this…then save this post, follow me on WordPress & any other socual media, and LET’S GET READY TO: DANCE YOUR MUU MUU OFF! I am on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, & Snapchat.

Frankie & Freddy Decide to Let it go? Not quite…

To be Continued:

Last we heard from Freddy he was continuing to mope around. He wouldn’t talk to anyone and when Frankie attempted to explain, he rejected her attempts…multiple times!

What else can Frankie do besides move on? Many of Freddy’s friend group had tried to talk to both of them and assist in this terrible misunderstanding.

Would these two, BEST FRIENDS, ever be friends, once again?

Two weeks, had passed and for two more weeks, Freddy was not on the ‘family’ bus, laughing and giggling, with all the beautiful, multi-colored Flamingos and his favorite one…Frankie!

His mommy was extremely concerned about her son. She attempted to discuss the situation with Freddy, but he would always reply with, “Mommy, you wouldn’t understand!”

The Ekard home atmosphere was very gloomy. When Mr. Ekard, Freddy’s daddy, arrived, after his business trip, he had a long discussion with Freddy.

He explained how his mom and himself were concerned about Feddy’s behavior.

His daddy continued to teach Freddy a ‘life lesson’ about mistakes, perspectives, forgiveness, and the value of A Good FRIENDSHIP!

Freddy was overwhelmed with joy and ambitiously ready to FORGIVE. He begged his daddy to drive him to the movie theater to find Frankie.

He could barely sit in his seat while Freddy’s dad drove 55 mph. “Couldn’t you break the law a little bit, I want to get there before she leaves?”

Mr. Ekard doesn’t hurry for anyone! Freddy knew that. But one strong belief he did have was ABIDING by the law. And if you questioned his integrity…ohhhh he had a way to make you feel guilty!

He continues to stare at the road, in silence, hands on the wheel and he squawks before he speaks, “Son (clears his throat) Son, I have always told you Freedom is a choice. I choose to never have a guilty conscious.”

“If I rushed over to the movies to allow you to do something terrific, but…I hit a little puppy or something worse, would I continue to be upholding my end of the deal to take you to the theater safely?”

Freddy sank down in his chair, allowing the seatbelts to slip up…to demonstrate his feelings of rebellion. Quietly he replied with,”I know and no, I wouldn’t want your integrity to ever be questioned.” Rolling his eyes to redirect his focus to the outside.

FINALLY, THEY HAD ARRIVED! Freddy was so excited he tried jumping out with his seatbelt on. His father helped pushed the button to release the latch…out tumbled Freddy. As he recovered himself and checked for any injuries, he looked up and his dad was attempting to hold a contagious laugh..when their eyes met, his dad immediately burst into laughter.

Spewing a mouthful of Cola all over Freddy!

They both froze for a split second…then burst into laughter.

Freddy almost forgot what he was doing they laughed so much! After quite some time they regained their composure. Freddy turned around and fast paced walked into the movie theater.

He asked Larry the ticket sales guy which movie they were watching. It is not difficult to remember ten diverse flamingos and their two beautiful mommies. Who shine so bright they always take a blanket to the movies to cover their brightness, lol.

Larry pointed Freddy in the correct direction and the hunt was on. He weaved in and out of the rows.

Until he heard a precious voice, “Freddy? Freddy is that you?”

He turned around, grinned from ear to ear, and said, “No, its Ralph! Of course, it is me. Is that you Frankie?”

“Yes, come here…he saw a slight glimpse of his best friends beautiful green shimmering feathers waving in the camera’s light.

He made his way back to her and she had a seat saved for him. She had a RIGHT SIDED seat…which is important to remember, because Freddy is predominantly left winged. Which means if you want him to share his popcorn with you, he must be on your right side! Only Frankie knew these little quirks about Freddy.

He snuggled his behind into the cushiony seat, looked over at Frankie smiled real big and said, “I am sorry for being a jerk and I love you. Please do not ever go that long again without being my friend. I was miserable!”

Frankie leaned in and whispered, “I was always your friend, you chose not to be mine.”

The two overlapped wings, in the popcorn bowl and contently starred at the wide movie screen.

You might think that is the Happy Ending and all is well in the neighborhood, but let’s take a gander back to the aftermath of Freddy’s request.

He asked for this dispute to be over. For his friend to never ‘leave’ him again. He also apologized for something he is unsure of because he wanted it to be complete.

Let’s see what happens next and pay attention to how your feelings might change, throughout the story.

As the two newly, reunited, Best Friends walked out… it sounded like squawking to everyone around them. First one would say, “I have so much to tell you.”

Then the other would interrupt to ask,”Did you see the new episode?” (As they caught up on their daily conversations about school, television, and life).

All of the sisters climbed on the bus, Frankie hugged Freddy goodbye and as Freddy opened his eyes to end the long desired hug…he saw Ralph sneaking on the bus.

Freddy pulled away from Frankie, jerked his head to the side (snapping his neck a bit and it hurt), and screetched in a questioning tone, “RALPH?”

“Why are you getting on the bus? Since when did you receive a seat on the Fabulous Flamingo Family Bus?” Freddy continued to spout out questions, to Ralph, himself, Frankie and Mabel, who was attempting to pull Ralph on the bus…who was now FROZEN on the second step wondering if he should be fearful, mad, sad, embarrassed or confused.

Freddy was obviously preparing to throw a ‘baby’ fit. In attempt to diffuse the situation Frankie, nonchalantly, says, “You know what Freddy the best thing for us to do is go home. For now. We will resume this conversation later. I promise. Instead, of you throwing a fit, getting me into trouble with me mums, and all my sisters becoming mad at you again, let’s pause and resume tomorrow. Okay, my friend?” (Frankie always knows how to diffuse Freddy. She begins to speak with her English accent. No one knows if it is truly an accent from her birth place or not, but when it appears in her speaking, it is understood she means business!).

Freddy dropped his wings to his side and began to mope. “I guess, if that’s the way it has to be?”

“Yes, it is a fact. I will speak with you on our walk to school”

Freddy and Frankie hugged one last time and with a little less energy, he climbed into the passengers side of his Farher’s automobile. He didn’t say a word the entire trip home. His dad allowed him to ride in silence and they rode off into the sunset…with the top on the Corvette back & wind blowing through their feathers! If nothing else it was a terrific father/son trip.

To be continued…

Stay tuned, up next…Freddy discovers the entire evening, two weeks ago, was a set up. Frankie knew all day, Freddy was not aloud to go. But she chose not to tell him!

Go ahead and follow us to ensure you do not miss out on the next Adventure of Freddy & Frankie.

How would you feel if you were Frankie? Freddy? Mabel? Ralph? The 8 other siblings? Moms? Dad?

Do you think they will resolve the past, move on, and return to Best Friend status?

If you were Freddy would you NEED to know what happened?

Or could you let it go?

Thank you for reading and please remember everyone has down times. Everyone feels like ‘giving up’ at times, but we are singing a different tune!

We want you to Live, Live, Live & Love with all your HEART! And when you are kicked down (emotionally, physically, spiritually, economically) pick yourself back up & CARRY ON!

My daughter’s Sunshine Message (shared with you)

Sunshine Message (created for my daughters & shared with you)

Why would you apply for jobs? If that’s not what you really want? Yes, income or revenue production is key to Living. However, if a place of employment is where you will spend over 75 % of your time, why not LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT?

So how do you find the perfect job, career, employment or Entraprunal experience to ‘apply’ for?

You begin with going back and deciding what you really want and maybe, a little of why you want it, for substance…then create a list of all the wonderful possibilities you can APPLY YOURSELF FOR.

Hmmmm, let me see when applying for J.O.B….ask yourself why would I ‘desire’ to do this? What parts of this will bring me joy & How can I benefit as well as assist others?

Hmmmm, what does bring me joy? Without fear or worries or PLANS OR EVEN WHYS…what brings you true bliss?
This should only take you a few minutes because within seconds you will be like: where is that…or this…or how can I do this or that, because you will remind yourself of JOYFUL practices, you have incorporated into your life, since you were very young.
But how does this help you get a job? It doesn’t! It helps you to find a feeling, terrific LIFESTYLE!

Create the lifestyle vision in your head and do not slow down, do not look back, or frett.

Instead, put your high heels on and let your light shine!

Knowing what and how you want to feel, is all you need and the universe will rearrange to ensure you feel, have, do, and be, whatever you choose! Wow!

Parents tell me how awesome your child is…

Your children conform to your expectations! As I spend hour after hour working with children of all walks of life and across the globe, I have learned, probably the MOST IMPORTANT, parenting skill…that ALL PARENTS NEED TO KNOW!

Are you ready for this?

The words that come out of your mouth as a parent, form and transform YOUR CHILDREN!

I realize this seems obvious and simplistic, especially when discussing as complex of a role as, PARENTING!However, my research is complete and it is 100 percent true!

For example:

Scenario 1: I had not met this young man before. His father & my honey have worked together for many years, since the boy was 2 yrs. old.

But all I ever heard was how much he bragged on his baby boy. All throughout the years I would here how ‘good’ he was. How talented, amazing and terrific.

Never once did I hear or even imagine… he had any disabilities OR was abandoned by his mother…who actually told him once, “The drugs are better than being a mommy to you!” (This was told to me as an example of the positivity, one parent, can utilize and redirect their child’s life).

Thirteen years later, I had the privilege to meet Nikolas, for the first time. You, as the reader of this post, now know as much as I knew about Nik, until this past summer.

As the gangly, long hair (Peter Frampton style), sweet, soft spoken and might I add, DYNAMIC, young man approached the swimming pool deck he introduced himself.

At that moment my mom & I were ecstatic to meet him. We did the regular introductions and he began a conversation about swimming. Nothing out of the ordinary.

Then I mentioned (off handed) I am so excited to finally meet the awesome Nikolas, I have heard about for so long.

He replied with, “Thank you! Everywhere we go someone tells me how my dad brags on me. He is one amazing dad!”

He has lived in several states and told us of all the people he had met. And yes they all told him the same thing.

Let me ask you something? If someone were to repeat what or how you describe your kids…what would they say? How would they describe/repeat YOUR WORDS?

I knew this young man had some difficult challenges throughout his life, but I promise his dad had genuinely talked his son up soooo much that those possible ‘issues’ didn’t even appear.

I never even questioned his learning difficulties nor thought of them. I only included the two known hurdles that this young man had, to demonstrate how influential his dad’s description was…EVEN WHEN THEY WERE SEPERATED for work.

You see…we already know our downfalls, even as children. So why not illuminate the good in our children & ourselves? And watch the GOODNESS shine?

Parents! Perfection is impossible. Even in you!

Begin at this very moment to write all the GOOD about your child. Leave out the other and watch the GOODNESS GROW LIKE A BOUNTIFUL GARDEN!

This works with adult children as well! It almost seems as though by highlighting their terrific qualities the irritating ones disappear. Same with yourself!

Need a Sunshine Message for you or sent to someone? Email me or mail your request/donation to: Sunshine Messages P.O.Box 173 Milton Ky. 40045.

Everyone has down times, our mission is to ensure you know that no matter what…This Too Shall Pass & We urge you to…

Do you have a bucket list or a list of goals?

What? What’s the difference? I questioned as I listened to the sweet lady on the radio, as the DJ asked her, “What is on your bucket list?”

She began to tell of everything on her ‘list’. Go see beautiful sights, meet certain people, ect. Then the guy asked,”Were any of these on your goal list before you were diagnosed?”

Wait a minute…What? What is the difference? Is there a difference?

I anxiously waited for her response…she replied with…

UGH! A commercial break. Tell me! Were these two list the same? Was there any other list?

When they returned to the interview nothing was said about the goal question. No, not one darn thing. They skipped over it like it wasn’t even asked.

Yes, you already know it is time for a Mrs. Drake investigation!

I must know does everyone have a bucket and a goal list? Are they the same? And if not why are they different?

I began to ask these questions to family members. Their responses were all over the place. However, we all agreed on one thing the difference is a bucket list is something you think of when your possible exit date is known and a goal list is for the living.

Hmmmm I am not sure I agree with this concept.

Let me ask you this…doesn’t it make more sense to combine the two lists and begin living to ‘accomplish’ those experiences you so desire.

What if ‘get a job’ on your goal list was changed to…

Bucket list- I will find a company that appreciates my talents and what I like to do. We cocreate together to improve their business and to improve my revenue.

Goal list- Be Married by 25.

Bucket List- Fall in Love, laugh alot, enjoy them each day like it is Our last together.

Goal List- Take a trip to Italy..

Bucket List- My love and I travel to Italy and stay in quaint little Air B&Bs each night.

What are your thoughts on Goal List vs. Bucket List?

Let me know because these two words seem to be similar. However, the general perspective might be a little messed up.

I don’t know about you but I think I want to LIVE each day focusing on my bucket list, rather than making goals that I may never reach.

But if I think it could be my last day, month, or year…how much more will I accomplish versus the list of ‘goals’ that I think I SHOULD DO.

This thought is still in the works! Therefore, I will take any advice on the topic, if you would like to share!

Also I am looking for a title of my newest book…For Network Marketers and Companies to grow by leaps and bounds. My original title was…Why do I HATE/LOVE you…NETWORK MARKETERS?

I would love to know what type of title would intrigue you to purchase and read this book?

(Side note…be on the look out for this book because the first two weeks it will be at a big discount. And Karatbars Affiliates we have some surprises for you!)
