If you stir poop with a stick does it smell worse?

The answer to my question is pretty obvious. Yes, a pile of resting cow manure, if stirred even the slightest, can smell up an entire area! Why does it matter? It really doesn’t however, it is good to know.

Life is similar to this. I realize sometimes, open discussion is the only way to heal. However, to stand and stir the pile to say you enjoy the aroma is ludicrous. When in a healing mode, get in patch the wound to allow it to heal on its own, then get out! Try not to stay in the smelly area and continue to stir and dig deeper, the outcome will not smell like roses, I promise.

When you are living in the midst of a pile of manure, you do not want to stay there do you? Also, haven’t we established that learning from the past is all you can do? You can not alter or change what has already been done, can you?

If you agreed with the above questions then put your stick down, right now! Change your conversations to exciting upcoming events, planning new adventures and creating a happier paradigm. Let the healing continue in the background.

To wrap it up! The more you stir poop the worse it smells. Let the decomposers do their job and you go ahead and create a better smelling future.

Movie Kind of Weekend

As I curl up to watch one of my all time favorite movies Bruce Almighty! It becomes clear it is a perfect analogy of you get what you ask for. Think about it there are only two rules 1. You can’t tell anyone you are God and trust me you don’t want that attention. 2. Can’t mess with Free Will And he responds with can I ask Why? God responds with, yes you can ask why, that’s the beauty of it!

The next few scenes are exact demonstrations of the law of attraction, everything he asked or anything anyone else asked for, they received. If they were not goal setting they could be aimlessly controlled. Jim Carrey in his character Bruce Almighty, shows us how simplistic life can be and joyous. But just like we can not truly control all the choices our children will make neither can God (was one of their messages). Therefore, our only choice is to set goals that make us happy and create the emotional attachment we desire. They even utilize funny, blaten symbolism to show how silly we are because we constantly have signs showing us the BEST path for us. Yet, we choose to say, “Oh no, I don’t need any help or I couldn’t deserve that good of a life or to be that happy.”

How many times can you remember making a choice you didn’t feel good about and it turned out to be a disaster? Or a decision that felt so right for you and even though some people questioned you, you knew like you knew. No matter what when you made that decision you knew it was right for you. Guess what? It turned out perfect or even better than you expected, didn’t it?

It’s because you made a decision on how you feel, it made you feel happy.

I have written it before and I will write it again and again and again….

Life is meant to live to feel good, be happy, enjoy, experience, fulfillment and much more. Set your goals and then enjoy the journey. The events along your road to success are fun and extraordinary.

‘Be Happy’

Deez Butts Bar-B-Que

Along the side of interstate 65 South, there is a marvelous sign advertising one of the world’s most awesome flea markets! Not sure what exit, but I know it is in Shepherdsville Kentucky. As we traveled to Bowling Green for a family reunion, last Saturday a new sign caught my eye. Dee’s Butt BBQ. It was adorable.

Of course, I must provide you with a scene: I am driving down the interstate, on a time line, mom is in the passenger’s seat. We are chit chatting back and forth. She is making fun of me for being Ms. Social Butterfly in Dollar Store and appears to be fretting over the time frame because we are supposed to be at the reunion by 1 o’clock, their time. She hasn’t told me she is worried, but I know. However, I had planned accordingly and was confident we would arrive promptly at 1.

Then it happened once again! I saw the sign of the cute pig, with her back to us and it was advertising some of the best BBQ in the area. The first sign I ignored. Then the second sign appeared and I believe there was a third, but secretly I might have made that up! My body was screaming BBQ, my mind was saying, “Do it. Turn off. You have time. Enjoy the journey if BBQ is what you want, stop and pick it up.”

I decided to make myself almost nauseated so I had an excuse! Finally, the exit was coming up…what do I do? My palms are sweaty, my stomach is burning for fear of what mommy is going to do or say. I knew I was about to upset her. I Weave in and out of traffic, Oh know a trucker has pulled between me and the exit! Oh forget it, I will eat at the reunion. I dropped my head and just kept listening. It’s okay I know we need to arrive on time. Truthfully, I didn’t need any BBQ anyways. (Keep reading I will tell you about my infatuation with BBQ and why I think I have it!) I was sad, but it’s okay maybe next time!

PSYCHE! Are you kidding me? If you have read anything I have written lately, you will know I miss nothing that is fun and adventurous! Yes, a truck did pull between me and the glorious BBQ! However, I checked behind me, braked, zipped over and shew I made it!!! Now, where is that BBQ?

In her mind, my mother was freaking out, but I reassured her, we would arrive at the family reunion no later than 1 o’clock!

We drove down the road a bit, searching for Dee’s. I must admit I was becoming concerned! What if I don’t find it, I should have stuck to the course. Then the arrow appeared this way to BBQ! Oh no!!!!! It is at the Flea Market! We drove in the gigantic parking lot, booths everywhere, people shopping, signs of corn dogs, fresh veggies and lemon shake-ups, but no BBQ. Finally, someone pointed to the building and told me it was inside. Left mom in the car and I was on the hunt. Funniest thing ever! When I walked in and requested more specific directions, it was on the opposite end of the building. When I finally reached destination Dee’s Butts, a line of twenty people or more were standing there just as excited as me. I will admit I almost turned around, but my heart kept saying no you deserve this, you have come too far, a little wait will not hurt you.

The line moved pretty quickly and I was up to order. I picked it up and went as fast as I could to the car. We stopped at a gas station and gobbled it up. As for the BBQ, it was good. I would definitely recommend Deez Butts Bar-B-Que,  in Shepherdsville Kentucky.

You see, it wasn’t all about the BBQ. It was more about the feeling attached to wandering off the course. Yes, I will admit these BBQ cravings have become hilarious since I broke my leg. I don’t know if my body is craving the protein, for healing or if it is something else. However, I now love BBQ and I love to stop, chase down a stand and enjoy the feeling of hmmm…let’s call it Big Butts BBQ. I love the adventure, I love to taste it and savor it.

We arrived at ten till one and everyone was happy to see us. It turned out to be a magnificent day visiting with family, eating more food and being together. (The BBQ was a precursor to how amazing our trip was going to be!)

If it is BBQ or canoeing it doesn’t really matter what brings you joy, but if you want more joy then do more of whatever it is. There are many paths to take in life, the greatest part is you get to choose when to change paths or want to continue on. Live to be happy!!! You deserve it.

Inspire me??

Inspire me, love me, caress me, give me adventure, give me a life, make me happy, I need you, I need…I, me, myself, oh there is a you? 

I know the beginning of this entry is a bit bizarre, but it wouldn’t be me writing if it was ‘normal’. 

As I search for inspiration on this beautiful Friday, I almost become overwhelmed with topics to write about. Then it happened, I realized my topic today is ME or should I say YOU! 

KEEP READING IT’S NOT REALLY JUST ABOUT ME!

As you have probably figured out by now my soul purpose in life is to research, create an atmosphere and educate you on how to be happy! Yes, that is my mission and vision. My belief is that my new knowledge combined with my past learning (critical thinking past students) I believe I can teach the entire world how to find their own happiness!!! 

Therefore, here is the first idea you must understand before anything you learn, from me, can help you. 

Ready? Anticipation building? You feel your very special spirit and all your cells jumping up and down, to hear what your first step is? Okayyyyy….

ONLY YOU, ONLY YOU, ONLY YOU, ONLY YOU CAN CREATE YOUR HAPPINESS. Now that I shouted that statement let me do my little educator trick… (I am whispering like the tiny voice in your head does all the time called you concious) you and only you can create your own happiness no matter what no, if, ands or butts! 

After reading that you are probably saying…”Wow!! Teena that was a big fat let down. I already knew that, but if I knew how, I would do it. That’s why I expect everyone else to make me happy. I am trying to be what they want me to be. I do for them to make them happy why can’t I have the same in return?” 

Please don’t give up on my lessons for you yet!!!! I do understand everything you are saying. To validate my last statement, let me attempt to give YOU some of YOUR THOUGHTS. (If you don’t need validation from me, skip the next paragraph).

“Butt (no I am not misspelling but I believe the word should almost always have the definition of ass) Teena he did this to me. He beat me, he cheated on me, he didn’t give me enough attention. Or she bitches all the time, she is boring, she gives too much to the kids. Or you don’t understand I am sick and no one understands how much I have suffered. My mom is mean. My family is abusive.”

I could literally go on for pages and pages with the statements I have heard why they aren’t happy, due to an outside incident. 

“So how could it be true? How if I have all this baggage or what I entitle- paradigm, could it be possible that only I can make me happy?”

That above question is for both you and I. I always asked the same question. Idk how I just know the answer is YES! It is true you and only you can make or create your own happiness.

Think about a time when you were entering a situation and something didn’t Feel right, butt you shoved your questioning or not good feeling aside. The person in the situation even convinced you to not listen to your own intuition.  Therefore, you, proceeded only to result in a moment of misery or worse depression. That situation or that person didn’t make you miserable nor did he or she make you happy! You had the feeling of, hmmm I am not sure I feel good about this. Yet you continued to persist almost begging for the outside people or event to MAKE or CREATE your happiness. 

It is you who creates your happiness or sadness. Why do you think religions teach “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” 

Or Scientist teach for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. 

Because how you feel is from you and if you feel happy, you will be happy. You will see happiness in others. It is extremely difficult to feel happy and bubbly around someone who is gloom and doom. 

Please do not misunderstand I have had my fair share of low points in my life. I have felt the outside forces pulling me down. However, after several months of sitting in silence mostly by myself or at least in my own brain, I promise you and I create our own happiness! 

I do not know how many more times I will write this message, because it keeps coming up. However, I promise it is the first and only first step you must take or concept you must accept before you can be successful at finding your own happiness. 

To me myself and I- I love you!! Try it…look in the mirror and say I LOVE YOU. Next begin to feel the happy feeling. Even if it is for a fleeting moment you will begin to desire that feeling and search for more ways to create your happiness.
