Butterflies flutter because they are proud of how far they have come…

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. πŸ˜‰

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!!!!

Need your help!

Here it goes, Lights, Camera and Action! Livelove’s YouTube channel is about to go Crazy! I get so excited every time I think about it. However, I have a few issues, that I could honestly, use your help with. As a new on-line business, with a mission, that contains a great deal of LOVE, for YOU…I am struggling with a few decisions. Therefore, I wondered if you would like to be a part of the ‘decision’ making process. If so, continue to read and participate, if not we will catch you later (you might want to skip over reading the rest of this one). If you already know about Livelove and are interested in having an input, as our family (business) grows and brands themselves, then skip down to number five.

  1. We have the business registered and services in place.
  2. Trademark for Freddy the Pink Flamingo, is all completed (those of you who helped choose him, Thank you).
  3. Β Slogan is being registered as we speak.
  4. Services: One on one coaching, professional motivational workshops, for those companies who need extra help with company moral and team work. A new e-book and audible book with the Happy Curriculum embedded into the series, to allow you to learn and enjoy, at your own pace, is almost completed. Educational Seminar for school districts to educate the children, on choosing life/living, rather than suicide. Some exciting new items will be available shortly :).
  5. So what am I missing? Your input on all of this! To be exact…
    • Where would you like to attend a ‘How to’ ‘Be Happy’ seminar/workshop? Is there a preferable location for example? Would you sign up to attend a Livelove seminar in Kauai, Outer Banks North Carolina, Los Angeles? Texas? Or Kansas City? Or in another country? Maybe Italy? or Mexico? You tell me, list it in the comments on Facebook, WordPress, messenger or email us… Livelove.teena@gmail.com I want to know where you would like for our event planning specialist to begin focusing?
    • Last but not least…Do you like our newest member to Livelove LLC? The only problem is she is nameless, for now. Therefore, I did a mini photo shoot for you! She will be creating educational videos for our ‘kiddos’ who are watching Livelove!
    • This is your chance to give a thumbs up or down to _______________, our newest member. Again you can comment on WordPress, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, messenger, email us at http://www.Livelove.teena@gmail.com, or check into our website http://Www.Livelovellc.org/home and leave us a message.
    • Questions to answer:
      • What should her name be? I have Momma Teena, Pinky, Pinkalicious (this one scares me a bit, sounds a little umm, IDK), or my middle name is Gay after my aunt, I could use her name which means ‘happy’. Or, you provide suggestions.
      • Do you like the pink hair? For educational videos?
      • Glasses? or no glasses?
      • Type of outfit she should have made? (If you didn’t know Physical Fit Flower the Clown was me, but I had to move away from being a white face clown, too many horror films 😦 .
      • How long of videos do you prefer? Five minutes, fifteen or twenty-five…we realize when guest are on the show, they may be over twenty-five, but regularly? (Educational Videos, songs, how to’s, interesting journeys, and much more)
      • Do you think we should post once a day, week bi-weekly or monthly?
  6. Anything else you can think of or suggest for us to help you, let us know!

Livelove is super excited to share with you in 2018! Looking forward to meeting you in person! I will announce her name as soon as we know the final decision.

God Bless!
