Motivational Speaker who will Change YOUR LIFE FOR THE BEST! Let's do this…either find a Live MuuMuu Talk with Teena or have Teena come 'Pump Up' your Business, Sells, Customer Service, and/or Improve your Office Environment. The time is NOW!
Welcome to my newest adventure. My daughter told me not to ramble lol…I rambled.
My friends told me to cut it short…its kind of long.
My family doesn’t know what to say. Therefore, they continue to support me. Lol
The truth is my greatest wish is these ‘talks’ either inspire, entertain, or motivate you! Yes, YOU to Live like it is your last, Love with all your heart & soul…& when life gets tough to keep on keeping on. Livelove & Carry On!
I can’t promise you perfection but I can promise you HOPE! HOPE, for a better DAY & Hope In knowing NO MATTER WHAT…This too shall pass.
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!

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!

Look at the life cycle of a butterfly. Coming from a tiny egg, suspended underneath a flimsy leaf. One drop of water, one piece of Hail hits their nest and SPLAT! Hurdle number one!
I see quite a few similarities to humans and butterflies already. Don’t you? We begin in a sac and it’s up to someone else to determine our fate. Because after all there is pro choice, some parents use drugs while pregnant. Ugh orrrrr somebody else thinks they can hurt a mommy and it’s alright grrrr. Okay go back…I went to far (music plays in the background) back to the butterfly cycle.
Then they have to eat frantically to basically stay alive, long enough to create an outer coating to protect them while they metamorphosis into an almost beautiful butterfly. Shew!!!!
Humans have to fight to stay alive from birth until their current age. I mean think about it when I was born my mom didn’t strap me with a five point harness and carefully drive the speed limit to get out of the hospital. In fact she probably held me without a seat belt.
Plus, children aren’t born with racism, offensive language, the emotions of awe did I hurt your feelungs? No they were born with ummmmm that feels terrific, do some more of that. Or that was fun let’s play some more.
But we still had to learn quite quickly eat your food because, somewhere there are children that would die for one spoonful of your Peas and Liver and onions, doused in butter or crisco. Yes, us humans and butterflies have similar life cycles.
Let’s move on to the tightly wrapped chrysalis, which you know is uncomfortable. And everytime a ‘threat’ disturbs the outer casing the wrap seems to squeeze a little tighter or wrap a few more strands.
As miraculous as it is to observe and enjoy. It reminds me of middle school through my twenties. Maybe until 33, but let’s just say 29ish. 😉
How FREAKING AWKWARD were those years. I felt like I was in a cacoon the entire time. I would wiggle and squirm. Lash out at the ones who were closest to me and sometimes even hurt others out of fear from being hurt, once again.
We go thru really down times, no one understands us and we always feel like we are begging to just feel better and not so confined.
The time has come…the freeing of the butterfly. It is probably the most frustrating observation you could ever have. Although it is extremely beautiful, the struggles to break free are real! It’s worse than watching a baby chick be born or even a human baby! They begin really small. The struggle is necessary! If anyone helps a butterfly break free…it will die!
Why? Because those struggles are for the butterflies wings to build strength. If their wings are weak, then the butterfly won’t be able to fly. And won’t be able to take cover when necessary, find food, or lay more eggs to create, yet the next beautiful generation of surviving beauty!
What about us? How many times during our struggles do we wish it was over? We wish for an easier way?
But if you didn’t have all your trials and tribulations where would you be? No one enjoys everything about those formative years. Nor can anyone place a time line on when YOU are ready to spread your wings and fly!
However, you will fly someday! If you just keep on believing, building, and growing. It won’t be long until you have outgrown your own cacoon and although the comfort of staying safe is cozy, your desires are screaming…we are hungry!
Is today your day to bust out? Are you ready to gain enough strength to fly? Keep on keeping on. Dream it, see it, and Most of ALL BE IT!!!!
Thank you precious butterflies for teaching us…that no amount of struggling can stop us from showing off our beautiful wings!!!!

I shutter as I write this simple, but earth shattering message. It feels like the sound from a CRASH and then another CRASH, CRASH, with the last being the greatest vibration of them all CRASHHHH echoing through your bones from a vibrating Gong!!!!
Now imagine being trapped in a box still alive, but hearing someone a friendly voice, just steps away from this suffocating box. Tell me, say it out loud while reading this…what would you do? Let it out! What would you do?
I would scream and scream. If I didn’t get their attention I would find a way to…. (You fill in the blank).
The Gong is struck again with a firm hit and steady hold, Gonggggggggg the deep vibration echoes through you! And without a doubt you can answer, “If you were trapped in a box what would you do to get out?”
Are you creating enough vibrations to get out of your imaginary box? Or are you sitting and wishing to get out of the box and so you choose to die in the box.
We need you to vibrate with us in sweet harmony. Why? So you can feel how amazing it is to Livelove & Carry On.
When looking for light, bright, sunshine emotions…do you go into the darkness searching for light? Or do you stand in the darkness hoping someone will find you, with a light? Or are you the light that shines bright and attracts more and more lights?
I said all of that to say this…if you are desiring change…meaning more lightheartedness, happy, sunshine emotions (because what other change could you want?) Be the light you are searching for so that you will have more and more sunshine coming your way.
Remember, tring to fix the past is like trying to make your butt hole beautiful. Ewwww I don’t even want to try that…do you?

As I begin to unpack my daughter in California, once again, I reflect on my past experiences. A time when I questioned everything. Was I making the ‘right’ decision? What if…? The questions would race through my head. My fears were overwhelming. Should I allow her to follow her dreams at such a young age? What about her safety? What about my other daughter, who willingly volunteered, to be her guardian? Could she handle this gigantic move and undertaking? You see, my daughter had been signed by an agent and was asked to move to Los Angeles California, at the age of 17. We were estatic! The hometown circumstances, let’s just say, weren’t the best for Ashby, at the time. However, could my girls survive in LA??? They were raised in a small little Kentucky town and Ashby was still in high school. Darion had moved to Nashville at the age of 18, but I could drive there in four hours. And I spent almost 6 months of weekends in Nashville! Once the decision was made we took off driving across the country. That was four years ago and here I am again! She is now 21 and although I knew this day would come, it doesn’t make it any easier!!! After her last adventures, I knew she would return home. Back to California. It hasn’t been any easier, but it is rewarding to know she is where she wants to be. My brain will continue to race and question, “Am I making the correct decisions, as a parent.” However, all I want for my children is for them to follow their bliss. And that is what she is doing. You know I can remember thinking I wouldn’t survive, the last time. Yet, here I am four years later. If you are struggling with anything in your life, right now. Please, remember you are loved and if you can pause briefly…I promise, “This too shall pass!” God Bless Livelove & Carryon Www.livelovellc.org/home Livelove.email@example.com Need some help with a situation in your life? Email me, I would love to hear from you!
This picture is on a house boat with Darion Drake and Matt Reed, when they were little. Although his memory will always live on, his physical form was taken from us. Why? Because he couldn’t see a better way! Isn’t it time we show others, there is always a choice. A choice to live. If life feels ‘too much’, pause, breathe and hold on…THIS TOO WILL PASS!
I will never ever forget the moment, I received this crazy phone call! “Teena, Matt has killed himself!”
I rubbed my eyes, cleared my throat and asked,”What? Did you say Suicide?”
“Yes, he is gone!”
(This is not a posting to upset anyone, but it needs to be written!)
I woke Eric up and we both broke down and began to sob. Heart broken, angry, hurt and deeply saddened were just a few emotions, we were experiencing.
You see this was extremely unexpected, because Mathew had been through this exact same horrific experience, with his older brother. He was a teenager and it happened right before his birthday. So you can imagine why we never thought Matt was capable of repeating the event.
However, sadly he did! Leaving his sister, mother and nephew with voids, never to be filled.
Let me tell you about Mathew Reed!
He had a spirit of LIVING! He loved cars, helping others, his family (especially his wonderful nephew). He was a ball of energy. Always willing to lend a helping hand and he could make you laugh until you peed your pants!
At his visitation, I heard the same thing over and over again. “Why? He was such a great person. Why?”
I wish I could answer such a simple question, as to why? But I can’t. Instead, I want to illuminate his life and hopefully help someone else. As I write, in almost ALL of my postings, NO ONE CAN CHANGE THE PAST! I, nor you can reverse what has been done. Yes, you can receive strength to carry on, but once any act or deed is done, it is done.
However, I do believe, my loving Mathew Reed and I can help someone. Someone who is hurting, contemplating and feels stuck.
You see IF we could have stopped this, Matt would probably be preparing for a fun filled night of hanging with his friends. Texting me at midnight to just wish me Happy New Years and laughing about all the crud he has been through. However, none of those events can or will happen.
Sad? Yes! Change it? No 😔!
Learn from him? Definitely 😎!!
If Matt could speak to you right now he would say, “Hold on. Pause. Breathe Deeply. And LIVE ON!”
It’s okay to feel…anyway you want to feel. But please continue to remember, ‘This too will pass.’
I love you Mathew Reed and will continue to send out your message.
Please, I beg of you, help me to help others. Tell someone today, that no matter what, it’s going to be okay. It will work out and this to will PASS!
First, let me apologize for yesterday’s odd post about politics! I normally do not talk about that because, to be honest, it isn’t a ‘good feeling’ conversation. I realize sometimes those discussions must happen, but do not worry it won’t be a hot topic on this blog, unless it is advice, that all of us can use 😄.
Ever have those days that you wake up and BAM!! It hits you like a ton of bricks! That sick feeling of (inhale then exhale) depression! Life could be just terrific, but to you it would be much simpler to return to bed, curl up under the covers, close your eyes and forget anything ever existed.
Congratulations! You are human!!! Did you know the most famous of famous and rich of rich, have all felt this way, at one time or another.
As I watched, listened and rewound to hear again the stories of the past 75 years of the Golden Globes, last night, I realized something. Everyone on this Earth has those days. As the cinematography experts, plugged in the ‘wrap it up’ segment of the show, I watched as many exclaimed how hard they persevered to come to this point and they weren’t stopping until they were done!
You know what? That’s why they were there, receiving that award! Because they didn’t say, “How? Or I am not good enough.”
Instead they said, “What and I am good enough, I am BETTER than good enough!”
I will admit I cried through the entire show, reflecting on the monumental times. The times when groups of entertainers, utilized their talents to make the world a brighter place.
Funny thing is, I woke up feeling a little depressed today. As I meditated, prayed and began again, the naggy feeling wouldn’t go away. So I explored why?
Skip this next paragraph if you have NOT been diagnosed clinically depressed…
(Before I explain any further, this is my disclaimer…If you have been diagnosed clinically depressed and have a prescription, continue working with your doctor and CONTINUE to take your meds! I know you immediatly want to argue with me because you hate taking meds, but trust me I know what I am talking about. It is okay you can still enjoy this journey and learn from my writings, classes and or celebrations and YES, I hope someday your doctor says, “You are completely healed” However, until then please continue your regimen. I have some new ones with my leg that ,grrrr, sometimes irritate me too, but it is for my healing, so I continue!)
Why would anyone, with all that I have and how blessed I am, ever be depressed? I asked myself. I have felt down times when something energy shattering has happened. That is a normal sadness…losing a loved one, focusing on lack of, feeling inadequate, you know, the normal sadness or depressed emotions throughout life.
So WHY do we, who have everything and are enjoying life, to its fullest, have these times, where you just want to go back to bed?
Of course, I had to look up the definition of depression…
Is it just me or do both of those definitions combine together to mean…Less Than?
Wow! Yes, depression means less than. Which makes a great deal of sense, even clinically diagnosed, have less than or too much of something which is to the extreme, creating an emotion of ‘less than.’
Hmmmm, could it be a depressed emotional state is as simple as allowing the mind to remember what you have lacked and how less than you are now.
This becomes more and more intriguing to me. If I woke up a bit depressed today, enough to say, “I just don’t feel good today.”
What ‘lack’ am I focused on? I am improving daily, have very few true worries, my family is wonderful and becoming more and more extraordinary by the day.
I figured mine out! Have you figured out yours?
At first I was planning on sharing my ‘conclusion’ as to why in the world I would be depressed! However, I am allowing you to have your own reason. This allows you to NOT have my experience to compare to. Whether your reason is a better reason or not. Because, pssst…your reason is good enough!
Whatever, it is you feel less than about, right now, I want you to go to a mirror and say, “I love you! You are enough and I love you, I love you, I love you! Go ahead! If you are at a crappy job, with a mean and degrading partner, or you are beating yourself up…it doesn’t matter at this moment, excuse yourself, for a minute and say to you, “I love you and I accept you!”
It works! It resets, the ‘lack’ that is deep rooted in your subconscious, to enough and acceptance.
Depressed? Don’t know why? Now you know why. Not saying a little down time, every now and again, isn’t necessary because it most definetly is! However, the sooner you can stop those emotions the better! So begin today…I love myself, I accept and appreciate me! Over and over.
When and if someone is degrading you begin to hum hum hum 🎶🎶🎶🎵🎶🎵 I love and accept myself!!! La di da…I appreciate me 🎶🎶🎶🎵🎶🎵.
Allow the beautiful words to be what you hear rather than the vomit, coming out of theirs. If you are beating yourself up because of lack, STOP.
You nor anyone else can change what has been. No one! Now decide, can I proceed in this environment, reliving the past or accusing myself of lack, for the rest of my life? Psssst, I will tell you a secret, If you want to be happy you must focus on abundance and leave the ‘lack of’ in the past!
So am I still depressed? No, just grateful for the emotion to explore and share!
(This is where we want to do a Seminar on Happiness, next year, let me know what you think?)
Listen…👂you are capable of abundance in life…love, financial and spiritual! You do deserve the best for you and in turn your best will be the best for everyone.
My greatest hope…is if you are struggling with depression, you will search for where you feel less than and begin to accept you can’t change the past, so look ahead look up and feel abundant.
