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!

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!!!

Proud to Be An American!

As Debbie and I recorded I recognized an issue, which popped up, that I hadn’t thought about since July 4th. it was about some live interviews, asking people,”If they were proud to be an American?”

When they responded with a big NO, Eric and I were like angry Apes screaming at the radio!

Therefore, here are my thoughts on the topic!

If you ate a meal, any meal yesterday…You can be proud to be an American!

If you have a day off, any day off and you are over 18… (Meaning not a child laborer) American proud.

If you are purchasing back to school items and not begging on the streets, to all the tourist for enough money, to GET to attend school for one day…Proud to be an American!

If you are a woman and you have rights AND you get to live today because no one is going to beat or terrorize you for the clothes you wear or any other silly reason…WOMEN SAY IT LOUD & SAY IT PROUD…”I AM PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN!”

If you are a Christian, Jew, Catholic, Atheist, Jehova Witness, Protestant, Muslim or any other Religion…I hope, with all my heart you are a PROUD AMERICAN!

If you own your own business…yep Stand Strong and be proud to be AN AMERICAN!

I could write on and on, but I think I will allow you to take it from here.

Why are you PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN?

Idc what your political views are this isn’t about POLITICIANS this is about YOU and ME!

PLEASE don’t let someone/anyone take your pride. Because just like this time and all other times that will be…THIS TOO SHALL PASS! The politicians will change, leadership will transition, but you and I…we will still continue on.

Let’s choose ‘together’ to let her glory shine, be the American you want to be and see our beautiful country as…

The land of the FREE & BRAVE!

I am PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN!

Thank you to all the active military and veterans! You always make me proud and I am super grateful for you! (Including my 2 nephews, Jade, Uncle Rod, Poppy & many more ūüėä)

As always, thank you for reading. And if you so choose, let us know, Why you are proud to be an America or even in AMERICA.

Sending you great love!

The ripples intrigue me…

As I sit and ponder my next great adventure, I quickly notice the abrupt change in the flow of the Ohio River.

When I first arrived at the studio it looked like glass with out a peep of ripples to be noticed. Within seconds I looked out and half of the river continued to hold steady, allowing the trees to reflect their natural beauty. The other half had began to dance in a sweet melodious manner. Swaying back and forth as if the life under the water was just waking up.

Peaceful, intriguing, fabulous, calm, breezy, not quiet but rather sound waves surrounding the area. Filling this beautiful environment with sweet singing of birds, jets zooming by high in the sky, a breeze rustling the leaves, AND what did I just catch a glimpse of? An EAGLE soaring in all her glory!

Have you ever stopped and thought what are my intentions? How do I want to feel? How do I want others to feel?

The sweet whisper escapes my lips- For my part in YOUR reality & mine…I Love you, I am so sorry, please forgive me, and thank you!

We all have moments of doubt, anger, sadness, and depression…however, it’s all about your perspective that will either hold you to all the yesterday’s (which you cannot change) or you can change what you are focusing on. Leave the past back with all the would, shoulds, coulds, and can’ts.

If I were to hand you a new life…what would you change?

As always we are here for you. Life (coaching) can help with divorce, weight, breaking nasty habits, building healthy relationships, depression, parenting, tutoring (for all ages) and much more. But most importantly we want you to…

Watch “First Attempt Nonedited, Sound Bath” on YouTube

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!

Good, Good, Good Vibrations…

Woke up this morning with the song Good Vibrations running through my head. Then I began to think about how important music and vibrations are to living a full life.

What does it mean to have good vibrations? Does what you are thinking about make a difference? I mean there are very few Avengers, who can read your mind in your everyday life, right? Why do you or anyone else care what you think or feel?

Guess what? Other people may not be able to read your mind or even understand what you are saying, but they CAN FEEL your vibrations.

Take a moment to read that last statement…one more time. Does what you are thinking make a difference? YES it does.

Instead of telling you let me show you!

Your emotions/thoughts– I am broke, have a bunch of bills. I cry all the time. I always say or do the wrong things. I don’t like my body. I don’t know how to feel better. I am afraid. I am fat and I know what I need to do, but ugh…I don’t want to.

A better emotion/thought in response to redirect you¬†– Before you read the next few paragraphs, STOP reading and turn on some music or begin to hum or sing. You probably already feel better, but if ¬†you don’t mind please, keep on reading.

Now feel how the next few statements FEEL to you...I am alive. I am breathing. I feel free. I don’t need sight to feel good. My tears are now filled with joy for I now see! What’s best for me will always be. Please forgive me, if I said something to offend you, but remember your vibration is only YOUR reflection.¬†

Ohhhh, how I love you fat cells, for all our fun times. I now know you were only protecting me by reminding me, I was always protected. Protected from others, starvation, survival, to never feel poor again and so much more. But I have learned that I am already protected. I know I am worthy, I will always have enough. I am loved, protected, happy, free and you can let me be. I feel good. I no longer need any extra protection. No, no…I understand you have been wonderful. I am good, I will keep what I need, but extra protection I don’t need any longer. (Wow! That felt good even typing, I hope it felt as good to you!).

How do you change or divert fear? This one is simple and yet not recognized well enough for us to feel’ how simple it truly is. Here it goes—To divert fear immediately is to create a comfortable and new vibration. How? Sing! Sing in silence! Sing out loud! Turn on music and sing! Create a vibration greater than the low, negative vibrations you were sending out.

As I searched for an older commercial with the Good Vibrations song, I could feel the advertisers objective. To ensure their audience feels good. Take this Sunkist Soda commercial, I actually envisioned being with a group of my friends, at the beach, singing the lyrics of a ¬†catchy commercial. I honestly don’t think I have had a Sunkist in ten years, but I want one now! LOL

 

Do good vibrations make a difference? Can music change the world? It is not the questions of whether vibrations = difference or music = change, but rather if you choose to raise your frequency to feel better.

What you are thinking and feeling creates the vibration around you. Regardless of how many ‘Avengers’ you have in your life, who really can read your mind. Everyone can feel your vibrations. Choose to feel good and good will feel its way vibrating back to you!¬†
