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 😊)
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!

Do you have a desire? Any desire? Determination to accomplish a task, earn large amounts of money, or win a race?
I can remember assisting my daughter as she first began to run cross-country. We would attempt to walk the courses before the race, to ensure she knew what to expect. However, there were always places we couldn’t reach. Usually those were the spots with an unexpected log, slick spot, or mud hole, you could drown in if you weren’t careful.
Darion would always worry about those detours, I would explain how to slow down and be more cautious, when approaching an unknown portion of the trail.
Although she is an adult and those days are long gone. She continues to push forward and not worry so much about the unknown. But rather enjoy the journey, at her own pace.
When Ashby began to run hurdles I thought, with track the visibility would be easier, creating less stress because they knew what to expect. I was proven wrong, time and time again. Sometimes the clear, concise path was more intimidating because the runners, knew the hurdle was there.
Why was this an issue? Because sometimes knowing what to expect, you continually worry about the hurdles, instead of the finish line.
While coaching runners to cross over to become a hurdler, I learned that many chose the 100 meters race over the 300. For example: one meter hurdles, Ashby was confident because she knew it was for just a short stint. It was not the entire track and was quick and easy (for the most part). As well as, many other athletes, who were more confident in the 100 meter, over the 300 meter. I always questioned why? It appeared both would be challenging, but simple enough to train for.
As I observed runners at practice, I watched them anticipate the hurdles, strategically placed around the track, they would fret to the point of physching themselves out.
Three hundred meter hurdles were more intimidating. They took more planning, time, and provided a wider view of the course, to run.
What if you had a family vacation planned, but the map came alive and demonstrated every possible hurdle on your trip? Would you still take the holiday? Probably not, especially if you were expected be far from home.
The athletes would do this very same thing. They would look at the long course, plan all the what ifs in their mind, and sometimes they didn’t run the 300 meter, due to fear.
In life, you already know there will be hurdles, along your journey of fulfilling your desires. But many choose to not continue, especially if they already know how many times they could possibly fall down, skin their knees or have a group of hurdles to jump.
As I assist people from all over the world. I realize life can be compared to a cross-country race, 100 meter hurdles, as well as the 300 meter.
Return to the opening questions. Do you have a desire? What is it? Once you have identified it, look at the end result. What pushes you to obtain your goals?
Now tell yourself…If I were running a cross-country race, I know there are spots that will be rough, unexpected terrain. However, all I need to do is slow down and look a few steps ahead. Glance up to see the dark spots on the path, but then return to directly in front of me and keep on running.
What if your journey is more visible and you can actually see the path? Remember, there will continue to be hurdles. Some will be bunched up together, similar to the one-hundred meter. Yet, others will be spread apart and all come up at once. Regardless of how far apart they are, they will appear.
Your job is to jump! JUMP one at a time and keep on dreaming. Keep on pushing and know that once at the finish line, you may relax. But only until the next race begins. Get ready? Get set? Gooooooo…….
My greatest desire is to provide you with hope, determination and ways for you to find your personal pathway to happiness.
Your one stop shop for living the life you always dreamed of!

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!
Roll or role? Which is it? I have no idea, but I love them both. I woke up this morning with the most clear and intuitive thoughts. It was similar to a fog clearing and lifting from the river as the sun, peeks over the Kentucky rolling hills.
I promised myself, before I went to sleep, today would be a new day. A day of new thoughts, ideas and intuition. I began with all my blessings. I counted them one by one and still counting, with every breath I take.
You see, I have been struggling with a little bit of self doubt and confusion. As my company, which is quickly evolving into our company (with new team members being added daily), evolves and is reinvented on a moment by moment basis, I struggle with the branding portion.
I have acquired some amazing gifts and messages, that I want to share with the world. In hopes to enrich the lives of all who experience this opportunity. Sounds like a Miss America Pageant answer to World Peace , I know! You don’t have to tell me.
Skip down to last three paragraphs, the message is at the end! It says you are AWESOME!
Ohhh, so you want to be another ‘guru’ of motivational speakers changing the world? Right? (You might ask).
Hmmmm, the truth is…well to be honest… (Pause, take a deep breath in and blow it all out)…My heart is beating so loud, I can’t hear the clicking of the key pad.
Yes! No and yes!
That sums it up. I hope you understand…
Okay, the truth is one day a friend of mine said, “What if, instead of expecting anything we wake up and be grateful for what we already have and lovingly accept the new, latest and greatest ‘best’ for us, that will arrive each day.”
This was a twist from any mind set I had ever expected. The law of attraction, with the law of allowing-receiving.
I know it seems too simple, but it’s better than the alternative of thinking or expecting all negative outcomes. This twist in my perspective truly assisted me in healing after a tragic accident. Led me to many adventures and most of all illuminated, who I am.
I have spent the year of 2017 developing, researching and experimenting with a wide variety of emotions and reactions, as well as, how to live the BEST possible life, I can live. I have identified my desires/dreams/goals, that will assist me in the ultimate outcome!
So why do you struggle with your company?
The answer is, I am still on the how! How do you be financially profitable, open a company that is based on a message, vision and a dream that is so big, it feels explosive, and yet difficult to attempt to, Brand it.
That’s where this promise, to myself, came in handy. I woke up clear! Created a plan, spent most of the day being super grateful, set a small schedule, to gather items for ‘The Big Day.’
Although, very little of my plans truly occurred today, I will say this day is another one for the blessed and memorable days. Not sure I can even describe it to create a clear understanding!
Does it really matter? No because my ‘role’ and my ‘roll’ just became greater than I had ever expected! I am in awe!
If you are struggling with self doubt, regroup. Pause, for one minute, then another. This too will pass. Begin to say out loud I Love and accept or approve of myself. As Louise Hayes explains it, “Say it 200 or 300 hundred times a day. Sing it.”
You are amazing! You are acceptable. You are ____________!!! Fill in your own blank.
Share your talents with the world, we need you and your knowledge.
Think loving thoughts, the best is yet to come!
Blessings? Memories? Happy thoughts? Opportunities? Friends?
Any? Have you ever counted any of these one by one? I challenge you to try it, just once.
Break it down to one day at a time. For example: Today, I am counting my blessings. I began at 4 in the morning and haven’t even scratched the surface. Everytime I fell back to sleep, I would wake up and add ten or twenty more blessings. When my mind wanted to confuse me or take me off track I would simply say, “I am grateful for such a full brain.”
Tomorrow, I plan to just have a good memory list. Then continue on.
What advantages have I gathered thus far? Hmmmm, I never knew how blessed I truly am!!!!
Try it, you will love it!
I will report back here tomorrow and let you know about some of the new blessings that appeared throughout my day!
Enjoy, counting them one by one.

I realized after re-reading this I forgot to include the low price for this amazing opportunity.
It is only twenty five dollars and/or forty per couple! But!!!! If you book between now, November 8th thru the 14th, you can purchase the class for 20.00 dollars! What? Yes, one time only and I PROMISE, it will not be at this price ever again.
Why? Did I drop the price for 7 days? Truthfully, it is because I am on vacation in paradise and I am feeling super sentimental. You see eleven months ago today, my life changed forever! And since then my mission is to help others find their own paradise and if Hawaii is only a dream for you.
