As my day became all messed up, YES…MY FAVORITE DAY of the week MONDAY! It began as normal, get up, shower, dress, go to work…you get the idea. Except, I am unlike most people. Monday’s are my FAVORITE DAY OF THE WEEK! Therefore, I never ‘work’ anywhere or do anything on Mondays that would disrupt my beautiful day of the week!
Today, was no different. My schedule had been a bit altered, but I didn’t mind. I decided to proceed forward with a huge smile on my face.
I played Jingle Bell Rocks at least 20 times, as I choreographed our next dance. I practiced and practiced, but something was not right.
Ever had those moments where you felt like bursting into tears & curling up in fetal position, only to feel sorry for yourself? It is a strange emotion.
As the music roared throughout the house, I pressed pause, to answer my mother’s phone call. We chit chatted for a few minutes and then it happened! (My poor mother, sometimes I know she wonders why she even called lol). I burst into tears and rambled out a bunch of silly crud, that was not true. Not towards her, but about me & my selfish moment. She provided encouraging words, as always.
After I hung up, I sent her a text of apology and appreciation. She always listens to me, even when I sound silly! However, mom didn’t reply. Instead I received a number for our friend who is a Cranial Sacroil Therapist. She told me to call her for my honey bunny.
Please let me interrupt this writing to say, when I received the number and name, my first thought was,”Mother, I am the one who needs direction right now! I am the one who was crying and feeling sorry for myself. But okay, if you are more concerned about ERIC 🤨🙄🤔, then I will call her! Maybe it will get my mind off of all this crud that I cant figure out, anyways!”
Yes, I recognize how selfish that sounded, but I needed for you to understand my mentality, at that moment, for you to see the amazing blessing!!!
I read her short text, pushed the blue highlighted number and called our friend. When she answered I was unsure I had the correct number. I continued to explain how Eric had been sick bla bla bla.
She interrupted me and apologized, but she had been sick for TEN WEEKS! She explained everything and right before we hung up…I spoke up.
“Hey, maybe I can help you! I have a bunch of ‘new’ developed skill sets and I think I can help.”
She paused and said, “When? I need you as soon as possible.”
Now at that moment, my mindset did a 360! I was not the same person I was ten minutes ago. I felt alive, ecstatic, wonderful & terrific. My mind was racing to find all the possible strategies to help this well respected healer and our friend.
We set our time and I am off to meditate! With fulfilled intentions. I am so excited!
My Monday is back & just like that a blessing APPEARS!
You see, we all have down, questioning, weak moments. But in those small moments a blessing will appear! If you simply follow your heart.
I had no idea that this woman of many talents would need me. I had no idea that text would change my mindset in a split second. But even in my weakest moment, I trusted.
Have faith my friends! Have faith that what’s best for you will always be! Have faith in YOU! God LOVES YOU! YES, EVEN YOU & ME.
I pray for you to have many blessings appear.
Happy Monday…enjoy the greatest day of the week. Even if it’s for the simplest of reason…which is, YOU WOKE UP!
Ever need a vibrational reset, message Livelove, we got you covered!

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? 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!
If life gets you down, let a little Sunshine in with Sunshine Messages.
Go back to my previous post, If I could give you anything…Anything! What would you ask for? Because this posting is part two of the story about a Genie in the Bottle and your wishes.
Remember when I wrote let’s leave the bottle for the bottom feeders? That’s because your Genie doesn’t have to go into the bottle, but you do need to learn how to recognize your Genie. I can’t tell you how many times I have coached people and they say, “I don’t think I have a Genie.”
And I reply with, “Yes, you do! In fact you have limitless Genies, but you need to first stop killing them so you can begin allowing them to grant your wishes.
Let’s begin small…(phrases that you use)…I don’t understand how you can say I have a Genie or several when I have all these bills. I work all the time and yet I never have enough to make ends meet. If I could win the Lottery or if you could give me a loan then I would be ‘better’.
If a Genie says, “Your wish is my command…”
And nothing else! (Pause! Take a deep breath for the next paragraph)…
1. You killed your Genie in the very beginning with not believing. (See any comparisons religious leaders? If you don’t believe and you go around being miserable, then why would you expect others to follow your beliefs or teachings or even Savior? Keep in mind this applies to all aspects of our lives).
2. Bills! Bills! Bills! Your wish is my command…it doesn’t say you can wish them away, but even if it did you didn’t do that. Instead, you killed the Genie, then you ‘kind of’ revived it, to ask for more of? Well, the only thing you could focus on which results in receiving as a wish, was lack of money and money to pay bills! And of course you also asked for less time and for your ‘ends’ to never meet! Whatever that means!
Enough is enough! Let’s correct that phrase and then begin to redirect all of our other wishes as we, carry on.
Try this: I have always been protected since the day I was born. Call it a Genie or a higher power, I know it’s real because there have been too many times I could have given up.
My wish is to feel better. To earn more because I am being compensated for how awesome I am. (If you don’t believe you are awesome then correct the image in the mirror until you are awesome to you. Meaning you are what you say you are…and I say you have an awesome you in there, it’s up to you to find it!).
If only I had a wish…I wish for__________. Fill in your blank. But remember to not tell of what is or has been. Only allow yourself to wish. And I promise if you will continue to wish for what you want, stop killing your Genie by not believing, and believe in the creation of you…Your Wish will Appear like a Bright, Shining, Gold Ring! Enjoy this day. Enjoy this wish…
My wish for you is to feel good. If you are suffering at this time my wish for you is to feel better! You deserve to feel better! You deserve to be better! You deserve to…
