My First recorded SUNSHINE MESSAGE! I am so excited!! Up very soon a ‘Happy Message’ daily! If you are struggling with the past this will HELP!!!
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!
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!

I smiled today…knowing that No Matter WHAT ‘THIS TOO SHALL PASS.’
I smiled today…for the moment you read this message! & that today you made a great CHOICE…You Lived, Loved & Carried On!
Life is to be Lived ‘HAPPY’ 99% of the time the other % is for you to re- evaluate and return to HAPPY!
Thank you for reading! Sending you great vibrations and happiness.

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!)

Have you ever thought about shooting a bow & arrow? What does it take? Is it simple, can anyone pick it up and directly hit the bullseye? Maybe, 1 in 1,000,000!
The fact is launching an arrow from the bow, is a learned skill set within itself. Not to mention hitting a bullseye!
During the wee hours of the morning, I tossed and turned, as I observed myself and several others learning to shoot a bow and arrow. The unknown instructor would explain, demonstrate and repeat over and over again. Next, we would follow his every move until…LAUNCH!
Many arrows fell directly at our feet, some would wildly shoot into the darkness. Those of us that struggled over and over again would become frustrated and aggitated to the point of giving up!
Then it happened! Our instructor said, “Lay down your bows. Close your eyes. Listen to my words”…as they explained step by step just the same as before, they would pause after each instruction, to allow us to visualize the actions needed to be successful.
The last instruction was, “Pick up your bow, place your fingers in the correct position, pull back and launch…feel the arrow as it soars through the air and plunges directly in the middle, BULLSEYE!!!!
Do you celebrate the small accomplishments or are you constantly desiring more?
Begin to allow yourself to celebrate. Feel the sense of accomplishment! What would your action be?
Would you thrust your arms into the air to send a vibration of YES, HOORAY, HIP-HIP-HOORAY? Feel the emotions that accompany your moment of success!”
As each person in my dream picked up their bow and arrow, they seemed to become illuminated. Along with the target. The darkness filled the empty spaces. Step, by step…each person practiced feeling their way to a bullseye! Some cheered as success filled their being with tingly emotions of ACCOMPLISHMENT.
Yet, others never hit the bullseye. However, something was different this time around. Those who didn’t hit the bullseye weren’t upset…Instead, they were uplifted and full of determination. In other words they had been given a second and third chance.
What about you? Have you taken time to visualize ‘how you want to feel’ after you have accomplished the ultimate bullseye?
Have you learned of what your true desires are? Sometimes we are attracting nothing or living based on a default program called auto-pilot. Do this at 9, be here at 10, ballgames until 8, supper, bed, sleep, repeat.
It takes only a moment to visualize. Yet, it takes some of us a lifetime to understand how similar life is to archery.
1. Archery: You need a skilled educator to teach you and guide you.
Life: Loved ones, mentors, friends
2. Observe, gather, and learn.
Life: from the day you are born you are observing, gathering ideas, beliefs and developing the skills set you need to survive.
3. Visualize, feel the celebratory outcome and cheer!
Life: How many accomplishments have you made, that you have shuffled under the carpet? Instead of illuminating your own experiences and talents.
4. Do it! Pick it up and launch the arrow!
Life: Are your launched arrows dropping at your feet? Due to failure to see the end feeling or for lack of launching at all?
You will hit many more bullseyes the more arrows you launch. But if you do not allow yourself to know what your target is, your arrows will either fall at your feet with a dud. Or launch into the darkness never to reappear.
Take the time to know at least what you most desire right now and begin to take the necessary steps to learn how to ‘launch’ you arrow. Before long you will hit a bullseye like it is second nature because you ‘know’ where it is going and how to ensure it makes it SMACK DAB in the middle!!!! BULLSEYE!!!
Hello there! I am super happy to share with you.
Come along and follow me! I may be able to help you attract the life you have always desired!
Or you may have something to assist me in HITTING MY BULLSEYE.
So come follow me as we take this MILLIONAIRE by law of attraction journey! Who knows this could be FUN!
Okay, if you do not know me, let me reassure you this journey is gonna be the time of your life! So please come share with me!!!! Come cocreate, coexist and persist to be happy 99% of the time.
Let’s begin with the old Arabic folklore…A Genie in the bottle! How many times have you been in a spot where that Genie and their three wishes would come in handy? Wishing, praying, hoping for answers to your problems? Now let me ask you…if you received this opportunity would you take it?
You probably just rolled your eyes and thought, “Duh! Teena everyone would take it…you would be a fool not to!
AND YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY CORRECT!
But what if? What if the government fails, we are all starving, and living in poverty, only focusing on the terrible current circumstances? Would you still use those three wishes?
I guess a better question could be, would you know what to wish for or what you desire most of all? Let’s practice…wave my hands in the air, turn around, sit down say the magical words,”YOU MY FRIEND, BECAUSE YOU’ KNOW’ ME I can grant you this… YOU HAVE THREE WISHES!”
Get ready, set, go…
What? What were your wishes? Hmmm let me guess…I want more dollars. Why? Because I know money can ease my pain and suffering.How? (You might ask) Oh good question!
If I had more money…I could pay my student loans off, my credit cards, property, and my MEDICAL BILLS. Or I can have the surgery I need to feel better ect.
BUT what if I had more than more money? That would be my next wish. Oh I could really ‘change’ things up! That’s why I play the lottery because if I win…my wish coming true will take care of my children, grandchildren and all my friends. And the charities I would give more than the writer of Harry Potter, who is known for giving the most money to charities than anyone on the planet? Wow, I just realized J.K. Rowling ‘could’ have become a forerunner for all Billionaires to follow…Instead of who can earn the most it will be who can give the most!!! Hmmmm I like the way you think J.K.!💖💖💖💖💖💖
Okay so MONEY would definetly be one wish on almost everyone’s list!!! What else would you wish for? Go ahead allow yourself to wish! After all I am not a Genie and this blog is not a magical bottle, you stumbled upon… (a long inhale-exhale) OR IS IT?👀
Shhhh, I can’t tell you all I know and have learned, at this point but I can ALLOW YOU TO TRY IT!!!!👄👅💟💄
Try for only today…to create a wish list! What do you deeply desire? If there were an APP that you could go to and type in…’I wish for _______!’
What would your wish look like, feel like, create for you? Go ahead create your ‘Genie’ in a bottle wish list!
Then come back tomorrow to read the next portion of this story. But promise me this, if you receive something on your list before tomorrow please LET ME KNOW! I will shout you out at the end of my post.
I am so excited for us!!!! Come along with me as I write with one intention…To Show You How to Find, Allow, and Receive your Genie. But let’s leave the bottle empty to become a home for bottom feeders. Let’s enjoy this moment of freedom together!
I am so excited I hope you feel the GOOD VIBRATIONS!!!
Tomorrow’s title…Do you realize how many times you kill your own Genie?
Like the spider in this picture…if you know me, you know I am terrified of spiders, but I felt empowered by my writing session this morning. Therefore, I decided to be this little spiders ‘Genie’ but his fears overcame him. Everytime I attempted to allow him to jump off…he ran the opposite direction! Until he jumped to his own death and drowned in my coffee! Why????? Why do I care? I guess I understood him after attending @The World Tour in Nashville Tn. for Karatbars. The company who is changing the world by allowing the world to choose Abundance (A post for a later date if you have received a personal invitation from me you should feel privileged. IF you haven’t you have my permission to yell at me publicly and I will send you one😉😉!).
If you need some help with those ‘Life Issues’ get in touch with me!! I will do whatever it takes to fulfill my mission…Change the World with One Happy Thought, at a TIME!!!!
You guys can’t even imagine how exciting this journey is!!!!
Written by: Teena Drake the author, visionary, girl (haha), who loves sharing happy thoughts with you to Co create a better world for us to share and for generations to come to enjoy! After all our universal goal is to Better, isn’t it? And the woman who has ALOT of Gold, oops sorry that was a secret message to all my @Karatbar friends!
I truly am in awe of my new found skill set. I took these pictures and created this video, but the best part is I produced the music!
When I first sent this to my dad he asked about the pics but didn’t realize that was my music. I laughed and said, “It wasn’t about the photos that was My music or vibrational pleasing sounds.”
I recognize there needs to be some editing done, but I felt like someone needed for me to share!
Without further blabbing from me…go ahead and click on my first attempt at assisting you with happy vibrations!
While you are there subscribe to my YouTube channel so you won’t miss my next recordings!
If you are feeling UGH or at the end of your rope…please I am urging you to realize we all have cruddy times but I promise if you will hold on…one more minute this too shall pass!

Ever had a friend like this? No matter what the conversation, it is how much they hate something about you, their ex, and sometimes even their children.
Ever analyzed or pondered what they are actually saying? “I Hate ME!” And everytime ‘I hate’ is stated it is not about anyone else, but rather ourselves or whoever says it. (Whether positive or negative the vibration always returns to where it came from).
Let me see if I can explain it differently…
If you hate math and continually tell others how much you hate math. How useless it is and how you will never be good at math. You are focusing on what is, ‘I hate Math.’
After you begin to LIVE this pattern of ‘hating’ math you tell others why, when, where, and how you are never going to love math. Yet it continually shows up in your life. Every state exam, GED, even Science and Social Studies, math shows up. But you won’t give up and neither will it. Evertime you exhibit the emotion towards math the emotion returns over and over again. Because the truth is life without math is not complete ;).
How do you get off the horse, bouncing up and down, on the Merry go round? Change your vocabulary. One at a time. Find everything you do love about math!
Wow! I love knowing how to tell time because I know when it is five o’clock or break time. Or I love earning money (which is all about math… time+effort+desire=outcome/monetary reward). Or what about vacation…how much, how far, time, destination and AWE five o’clock cocktail under the cabana!
If you are continually telling the story of, “I hate you, I hate her, him and all of them!”
You will quickly find others will regurgitate whatever you tell them. For example, I have this dear friend of mine and he told me all the things he hated in fifteen minutes or less about four or five people. I allowed him this opportunity, intentionally. When I paused and requested to know what he liked (not loved) just liked, he continued to spout off all the negative crud he is receiving and ‘what is’ being done to him by a select group of people.
A few days later I was in town and spoke to a few of the people he had been complaining about. Guess what? They said, “He hates us, now. He has done this, that and oh so much more. I don’t care anymore he is damaged and isn’t going to improve. He only likes himself.”
Hmmmmm do you see any similarities? After listening to their side I quietly asked, “Do you believe all that?”
But guess who did believe all those hateful acqusations? He did. Therefore, his life had become filled with what he was focusing, talking, and dwelling on.
Was this his intention? NOOOO. And with just a little tweaking of his vocaulary he could altar the outcome.
What if we all paused immediatly after stating something crappy about someone else and asked ourselves, “Why did we even think to say that? What part about them do I not like and in return, I don’t like about myself?”
I know it is ‘difficult’ to accept that we create our own destiny. And if you would like to discuss this bold and true statement I am more than happy to oblige.
What is the story you choose to tell? Is it the poor me or the bold, beautiful, powerful me? Enjoy your choice, if your story is not generating joy…CHANGE IT!

Freddy the Pink Flamingo was hanging out with his friends. They played games, cooked out, and laughed, all day long.
As Freddy was retrieving the hoola hoop from ring the neck of a Flamingo, he saw a gigantic moving truck pull in.
He ran back to his friends with great excitement screeching, “A new Flamingo is moving in! Hey! Hey! I just saw a moving truck and a new Flamingo is moving in!”
Frank, Fillip, Frances, and some of the other Flamingos gathered around Freddy to hear what he was so excited about! “Aren’t you all excited? I wonder if they like to cook out, play games…” Freddy questioned.
“Of course they will like everything we like, they are Pink Flamingos!” Frank commented, acting as if Freddy was silly for being so excited. “Come on let’s finish this game I am winning!” he continued.
But Freddy was too excited to meet his new neighbors!
He peeked through the small hole of the joining privacy fence, which was created by his best friend Flipper, before he moved out of town.
His right eye ball made a complete circle as he scanned the backyard. But not one sign of a new Flamingo, yet.
Until…as he began to turn around and sadly report I can’t see anyth…he was abruptly interupted by a gigantic gasp from his friends. He looked puzzled as to why they were all starring at him with a horrible look plastered on their beaks!
Freddy froze and felt like he was turning white.
Before he could sputter any words from his beak…he felt a shadow towering over him. He quickly rolled his eyes up, up, up and over his head.
“Aaaaaaaaaaa,” he began to scream and scream.
The different colored, too tall, odd shaped thingy, simply pulled her head back and slowly walked into the back door of her new home.
“What was that?” He asked.
Freddy’s friends surrounded him and everyone began to talk at once. In a chaotic Flamingo chatter.
Until…they heard a light tap, tap, tap on the gate of Freddy’s back yard.
All of the Pink Flamingos held their breath and became silent. As if the tap, tap, tap on the other side of the gate would ‘think’ no one was home.
Tap, tap, tap once again.
Finally, Freddy slowly unlocked the gate, peeked through the tiny crack and…
What did he find?
A neon green, beautiful, bright Flamingo just his size.
“Hello, I am Franky. May I come over to play, while my mommies unpack.”
Freddy was so excited that she was not the tall blue looking bird, he encountered on the other side of the fence that he replied with, “Of course come in and meet all my friends!”
Franky timidly walked through the gate, looked around, smiled and quietly introduced herself, “Hello, I am Freddy’s new neighbor, Franky.”
As Freddy danced back and forth, he grabbed a hot dog off the table and created a delicious plate of food for his new friend, he saw something happen, that was not too pleasing. 😔😢😢😔
Many of his friends were now in a group snickering and being quite rude to Franky.
Frank looked at Franky in a disgusting manner and asked,”Why is your skin Green? Yuk! And why is your name Franky if you are a GIRL?”😬😬😲😲
Several others chimed in as if they were in agreement with Frank. They all starred at poor little Franky anticipating her answer, as if she could come up with a decent answer, as to why she looks different.👽
But before Franky could answer the big, blue, thingy…peeking over the fence from earlier, yelled out, “Franky, Franky where are you?”
Franky with a sigh dropped her head and vanished behind the gate as fast as she had entered.
Freddy was mad! He ruffled his feathers and stomped his flimsy legs over to his other Pink Flamingo friends. “Why? Why were you mean to our new friend?”😠
Everyone acted like he was silly. Fillip stepped up and explained to Freddy. “We don’t like Franky.”
“Because, she is green!!!! And a girl.”
All of Freddy’s friends agreed this new neighbor, was not their friend.
Their squawks, filled with complaints, were quickly drowned out by music echoing from Franky’s yard.
All the boys rushed over to the peep hole in the privacy fence. Pink feathers were flying as they pushed and shoved to attempt to see where the music was coming from.
The big, blue, Flamingo who towered over the six foot privacy fence, hung her head over to calmly ask,”Would you like to come over?”
With their beaks pointing up really high, towards the sky, they shook their heads in perfect unison, Yes!
With their feathers ruffled as if they were taking flight, the boys took off running towards Franky’s back yard.
Freddy decided not to go because he was so mad at how rude his friends were. 😠😳
When the boys entered the gate their eyes almost popped out of their heads! Toys, a sand box, outside games, a swing set and at least ten other Flamingos. All GIRLS! And All different colors!💖💚💙💜💛
At first Ralph, Freddy’s best friend felt sad that Freddy didn’t come and began to turn around to beg him to join them.
Until, he spotted Franky slipping out the gate to go ask Freddy. Before she disappeared she paused, turned around and winked at Ralph. He smiled real big and went off to play in the sand box with Mabel the purple Flamingo.😉
To be continued…
What do you think Freddy said to Franky? Do you think he joined them or did he tell Franky all about how terrible his friends were?
What would you do? Have you ever judged someone by their outside appearance? I am sure we all have.
