If I could give you anything…ANYTHING what would you ask for?

Let’s begin with the old Arabic folklore…A Genie in the bottle! How many times have you been in a spot where that Genie and their three wishes would come in handy? Wishing, praying, hoping for answers to your problems? Now let me ask you…if you received this opportunity would you take it?

You probably just rolled your eyes and thought, “Duh! Teena everyone would take it…you would be a fool not to!

AND YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY CORRECT!

But what if? What if the government fails, we are all starving, and living in poverty, only focusing on the terrible current circumstances? Would you still use those three wishes?

I guess a better question could be, would you know what to wish for or what you desire most of all? Let’s practice…wave my hands in the air, turn around, sit down say the magical words,”YOU MY FRIEND, BECAUSE YOU’ KNOW’ ME I can grant you this… YOU HAVE THREE WISHES!”

Get ready, set, go…

What? What were your wishes? Hmmm let me guess…I want more dollars. Why? Because I know money can ease my pain and suffering.How? (You might ask) Oh good question!

If I had more money…I could pay my student loans off, my credit cards, property, and my MEDICAL BILLS. Or I can have the surgery I need to feel better ect.

BUT what if I had more than more money? That would be my next wish. Oh I could really ‘change’ things up! That’s why I play the lottery because if I win…my wish coming true will take care of my children, grandchildren and all my friends. And the charities I would give more than the writer of Harry Potter, who is known for giving the most money to charities than anyone on the planet? Wow, I just realized J.K. Rowling ‘could’ have become a forerunner for all Billionaires to follow…Instead of who can earn the most it will be who can give the most!!! Hmmmm I like the way you think J.K.!πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

Okay so MONEY would definetly be one wish on almost everyone’s list!!! What else would you wish for? Go ahead allow yourself to wish! After all I am not a Genie and this blog is not a magical bottle, you stumbled upon… (a long inhale-exhale) OR IS IT?πŸ‘€

Shhhh, I can’t tell you all I know and have learned, at this point but I can ALLOW YOU TO TRY IT!!!!πŸ‘„πŸ‘…πŸ’ŸπŸ’„

Try for only today…to create a wish list! What do you deeply desire? If there were an APP that you could go to and type in…’I wish for _______!’

What would your wish look like, feel like, create for you? Go ahead create your ‘Genie’ in a bottle wish list!

Then come back tomorrow to read the next portion of this story. But promise me this, if you receive something on your list before tomorrow please LET ME KNOW! I will shout you out at the end of my post.

I am so excited for us!!!! Come along with me as I write with one intention…To Show You How to Find, Allow, and Receive your Genie. But let’s leave the bottle empty to become a home for bottom feeders. Let’s enjoy this moment of freedom together!

I am so excited I hope you feel the GOOD VIBRATIONS!!!

Tomorrow’s title…Do you realize how many times you kill your own Genie?

Like the spider in this picture…if you know me, you know I am terrified of spiders, but I felt empowered by my writing session this morning. Therefore, I decided to be this little spiders ‘Genie’ but his fears overcame him. Everytime I attempted to allow him to jump off…he ran the opposite direction! Until he jumped to his own death and drowned in my coffee! Why????? Why do I care? I guess I understood him after attending @The World Tour in Nashville Tn. for Karatbars. The company who is changing the world by allowing the world to choose Abundance (A post for a later date if you have received a personal invitation from me you should feel privileged. IF you haven’t you have my permission to yell at me publicly and I will send you oneπŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰!).

If you need some help with those ‘Life Issues’ get in touch with me!! I will do whatever it takes to fulfill my mission…Change the World with One Happy Thought, at a TIME!!!!

You guys can’t even imagine how exciting this journey is!!!!

As always….

How would you participate in the Olympics, if you had the choice?

As the meeting began at promptly seven in the morning, we quickly scurried to our seats and the ‘Toastmaster’ began our weekly meeting. I can’t tell you how elated I am, each time I attend a meeting. I know our Earlybird Toastmaster group thinks I am lying, at times, when I boldly announce how happy I am to have this wonderful experience with such a wonderful group of people and for a good cause. (Yes, I become all mushy and sentimental sometimes, because I am so darn grateful for this experience). However, they always find a way to uplift, educate and inspire me to keep on keeping on.

This week was no different. I was so ecstatic to be there I had goosebumps. Then they announced the topic or subject of the week! Omg, each and every cell was bouncing up and down when he said, “Olympics.”

I don’t remember anything else, but that word! I don’t know if it is about specific athletes, awards, or #trends on #twitter. I simply heard OLYMPICS! I thought oh yes! This is my topic! I can remember when the torch was to be running through our small town of Bedford Kentucky over twenty-two years ago!

It was a cold, dreary day and Darion was at least two years old, which she is now 25. I had all the details. When the athlete would be passing our driveway, approximate time of arrival at the Courthouse and the time of the torch lighting. I talked about it for weeks and weeks before the actual day! LOL I remember friends of mine laughing at me for my obsession surrounding this event. It was finally here!

I wrapped Darion up and we quickly walked to the end of our mile long driveway. The rain poured, it felt like God was pouring buckets of water on top of us! It didn’t matter, we stood firm and cheered as the drenched and cold athlete ran by. Tears streamed down my face as Darion looked up and asked, “What’s wrong mommy? Why are you sad?”

I chuckled, swooped her up to rush and catch the lighting of the torch. The inspiring event continues to hold a special place in my heart. However, after reading this heartfelt series of events you would probably create an image of a sports crazed person. Watching sports event after event, having great celebrations around the sports world to be able to cheer on my team. Truth is I could care less. I can take it or leave it, but the Olympics inspires me, creates emotions of exhilaration, I can, achievement and unity.

While multitasking by reflecting and enjoying my emotions, I am quickly brought back to reality, when the acquainting session had begun and I was off in la la land. “I am sorry, can you restate the question?”

“If you could participate in the Olympics what would you want your role to be?”

(I am not even sure if that was the question, but that is what I heard).

I stated my name and what I ‘do’ then said, “If I could be anything I would be a coach! And now that I think about it, that’s what I love to do anyways.”

What? What kind of answer was that? My Stinking Thinking (Zig Ziglar) was creeping in! Michael one of my fellow toastmasters, reminded me to stop Stinkin Thinkin and I immediately brought myself back to the meeting! He is correct. I am fine, I continued to ‘coach’ myself through each portion and stayed focused on the speeches.

Then it happened. One of those AHA moments, hit me! Sam (another fellow Toastmaster) said, “Teena, When you said that about being a coach, I laughed and told Michael, if Teena Drake told me I could do it, I would believe it and do it.”

I laughed it off, yet allowed his kind and motivational words to sink in.

Sam hit the bullseye! I always knew I was labeled a cheerleader. However, after a certain age the title cheerleader, isn’t how I would describe myself. Because it is isolated to one team or age group. However, over the years some of my greatest emotional accomplishments were during my times of coaching. And yes, I mean original types of sports coaching- Tee ball, flag football, middleschool volleyball, cheerleading, track…as well as talent, beauty, pageants and academics!

In the sports world, I struggled with insecurities. I never felt ‘good’ enough to uphold the title Coach. I don’t know if it was my lack of ability in those skill sets or my lack of knowledge. But I rarely placed my ‘coaching’ experience on a resume or LinkedIn, until now.

However, my teams were always successful. I have a great deal to celebrate over the multitude of wins and improvements in my athletes. But I didn’t have faith in my own ability.

Although my style of coaching is much different than the past, the main purpose/goal, is invariably the same. I love it! As coach… you are their cheerleader, small tiny voice in their heads that says, “Yes, you can!” Mentor, guide and most of all motivator.

Along with so many people who assist, motivate, hold me accountable and uplift my gifts, I must express my deepest gratitude to all of them and to my fellow Toastmaster friends.

You see, you do not know when your words could change someone’s life forever! If you see something terrific in someone tell them. They may need a little boost to fullfill their own dreams and ambitions. We are all in this together.

I am grateful to know I am on the right path.

Do you love this feeling as well? Haven’t found it yet? Still looking for a title that resignates with you? Look into our services we are building an empire of self development tools, wide variety of coaches, and keynote speakers.

What do you want to say when asked, “What do you do? Why?”

Change is inevitable; Self Doubt is a reminder

As we all know change occurs second by second, whether you control the change or simply allow it, now that ‘changes’ EVERYTHING! However, what about self-doubt? What part of self-doubt can assist us in dealing with or controlling the change in our lives?

Could it be that self-doubt is a reminder that you can control how the, inevitable changes, occur in your life.

If we know changes are going to happen, we know everything in our lives, is not going to stick to the plan, why not utilize those ‘not so good’ self doubting, moments to empower you?

How? Simple, recognize that self- doubt is that friend that forces you to think about the worse case scenario. No, I am not an advocate for ‘what ifs’ however, what if, this doubt serves a vital purpose in accomplishing great things or taking the simpler, more paved road and enjoying the ride.

Either or the opportunity to recognize this moment of wallowing in what has been or could be, can be (if you choose) a great asset to your ‘happiness’ tool box.

Next time you experience that moment of OMG! What am I doing? How will I find my path? I can’t do this, I am not good enough! Moments, choose a time to let it go.

For example: You are stepping out on a limb, the limb feels wobbly and you are contemplating what can, will or might happen. You would weigh all the outcomes/options and either set a limit of how far you can go or keep walking and see what happens. Either or you will have change. You will have an outcome. You also chose all of those outcomes!

Set a time frame to poop or get off the pot. If you want to control or learn to enjoy all changes, when self-doubt appears, allow it for a set time or space.

Next, be grateful for the opportunity to weigh all options and MOVE ON. Allow the short-lived negative emotion to propel you into the wonderful, terrific, fabulous life you have always wanted.

I am so excited for us! As I am allowing my life to be utilized as a messenger. A messenger for you and I to live for the best in and of you & me.

I know life has hit you upside the head several times! I know when just arriving in the valley, you struggle with seeing a way to begin climbing to the top, again.

This change has been since the day you were born. When you took that first breath you began adjusting with the changes in environment, how you ate and how you slept.

You have what it takes to live the life you have always wanted. It’s up to you, how long you allow the changes to hit you, like a ton of bricks. Or how you utilize self-doubt. Either or you will have change, you will experience down & out times and only you can decide how to allow self doubt to assist you or hender you.

Movie Kind of Weekend

As I curl up to watch one of my all time favorite movies Bruce Almighty! It becomes clear it is a perfect analogy of you get what you ask for. Think about it there are only two rules 1. You can’t tell anyone you are God and trust me you don’t want that attention. 2. Can’t mess with Free Will And he responds with can I ask Why? God responds with, yes you can ask why, that’s the beauty of it!

The next few scenes are exact demonstrations of the law of attraction, everything he asked or anything anyone else asked for, they received. If they were not goal setting they could be aimlessly controlled. Jim Carrey in his character Bruce Almighty, shows us how simplistic life can be and joyous. But just like we can not truly control all the choices our children will make neither can God (was one of their messages). Therefore, our only choice is to set goals that make us happy and create the emotional attachment we desire. They even utilize funny, blaten symbolism to show how silly we are because we constantly have signs showing us the BEST path for us. Yet, we choose to say, “Oh no, I don’t need any help or I couldn’t deserve that good of a life or to be that happy.”

How many times can you remember making a choice you didn’t feel good about and it turned out to be a disaster? Or a decision that felt so right for you and even though some people questioned you, you knew like you knew. No matter what when you made that decision you knew it was right for you. Guess what? It turned out perfect or even better than you expected, didn’t it?

It’s because you made a decision on how you feel, it made you feel happy.

I have written it before and I will write it again and again and again….

Life is meant to live to feel good, be happy, enjoy, experience, fulfillment and much more. Set your goals and then enjoy the journey. The events along your road to success are fun and extraordinary.

‘Be Happy’

Momma said, “There will be days like this!”

Have you ever began your morning with full intentions of waking up and enjoying each moment of the day? Woke up bright eyed and bushy tailed? Only to walk out the door, slam your ankle in the screen door, have multiple phone calls with someone needing something from you, your special dinner is a disaster and you realize the bills are piling up? 

Of course you have! Everyone could make a list of what IS happening at that moment. If you are reading this right now you can probably create a long list of daily events or circumstances that irritate you. 

The truth is your momma or a loved one told you there would be days like this. However, you can reset, not necessarily redo. I know I would not want to redo those days or moments. Therefore, a reset is important. 

How? Most of the time it is simple. At the moment the irritating thoughts or events begin to say, “I am grateful for….” 

Keep saying and listing all the items, people, places and experiences (outloud) in which you are grateful for. 

Yesterday, I had one of those days. Where it seemed like each time I tried, someone or something would irritate the crap out of me. I would have mini blow ups of emotion. At one point in the day I was expressing my opinion and the next I was crying. I continually attempted to reset. It didn’t ‘appear’ to be working. My mind would run from thought to thought trying to recover my feel good, happy, understanding enthusiastic state. I began to fear everything I had been writing or studying was not real. 

Then it happened! You know when it happens you just know like you know!?

I know that seems silly to type, but it is true. Once you have experienced it you simply know! 

In between my mini melt downs of emotios (which were random) I would talk outloud throughout the house. “I am grateful for my farm, the sunshine, my health, my happiness,” sometimes yelling each statement.

My vibration would get a little better. I pushed and pushed the reset button multiple times. “I am grateful for…”

After a few hours and multiple irritating events it finally broke thru! Around 4 o’clock I had one of my adopted kiddos bring her dog to meet me. I was super excited to meet him. We chatted (yes the dog and I were instant friends), played with his ball, showed off a bit and then he decided to walk in my kitchen and hike his leg, only to mark his territory, of course. When I looked down it appeared to be a river of urine. Next he went to another spot, where he chose to proceed with what he only feels natural to do. As Jordan was running around trying to help me clean up pee it happened. That thing that I do, when my vibrational reset finally kicks in. I began laughing, I hugged my new friend and relaxed. 

You see, yesterday was a day of celebration and it was a struggle to enjoy the happy vibration. I began with 630 AM wake up call, went to grocery (had several events occur), came home to attempt to cook my dad’s 60th birthday dinner. His favorites: Lasagna, garlic toast, coconut cream pie and wine.

It appeared to be falling apart. I kept forgetting what I needed for the meal, Ashby and her friend were here (which made me feel torn because I wanted to hang with them), Nick needed college stuff, you understand! 

That’s when it happened. Directly before Dad and Susan showed up I felt my vibrations reset. I felt more light hearted, I was grateful, and it turned into an evening I will cherish forever! 

Reset as many times as needed. Sometimes it takes a little bit of persistance, but you are worth it. If you are feeling down or see the world as gloom and doom, begin right now! Say it outloud…I am grateful for…say it again…I am grateful for…and again and again. Until the vibration shifts. It will, it has to, it is the law. 

Please if this blog helps you share it, tell people about it. My happiest desire is to help you and others to find YOUR HAPPINESS. Not what I think would make you happy. Rather, what creates that ‘feel good’ emotion for YOU. 

This picture is of my daddy with his birthday pie! His smile warms my heart and was the greatest contributing factor for my reset! I love you and I am grateful for you.
Feel Good Today! 

God Loves You No Matter What; Love is there for you.

Judge and ye shall be judged?Β 

Okay not sure I should call the funny, yet frustrating incidents of the day, a form of judgement. I will let you decide and let me know.

One incident was when a good friend of mine stopped by to just talk. Hidden in our chit chat, it was obvious he was  trying to fill the empty space or void, while his son was away. I remember thinking he is entering high school you should probably let go of those reigns a bit. So if that is a judgemental thought, to you, then my title is on target. 

Then it happened! As I ran my son to his college orientation, I would glance over to look at my six foot three baby boy and think I just hope he won’t starve to death during college. I don’t know why we think, all throughout our children’s lives, they are capable of anything, only to set them free in college and think they are going to fail, because they dont have us to remind them to eat. 

It’s comical to me, how many times I will just question a little bit of what someone is saying and next I will experience a similar incident moments later. Almost as if Judge and ye shall be judged is extremely close to law of attraction! Hmmm or does this statement sound more like Newton’s Law Every Acton has and Equal and Opposite reaction. Wait!!!! I have one more Like begets Like?? I am sure you see the connection between the laws.

Two messages for today…be careful with judgements. I realize this wasn’t a disastrous situation, but remember, my only consequence was a thought or worry about something that is not real. Nicholas is more than capable of feeding himself and seveal others, so I hear. However, what if you pass judgement on someone and it damages them for life. Guess what? You will feel that same horrific judgement. I am sorry but it’s the Law!!! 

The second message is your kids are okay. If you worked with your kids, instilled good morals and values, nurtured them; they will remember to eat when they go to college!!! 

God Bless!!!

How do you know?Β 

One of the funniest questions I have asked people has been what makes you happy? Why? I have had the funniest answers from– you Teena,  make me happy.  Yet, others looked at me with a puzzled look and said I have no idea. Like they were waiting and anticipating to be told WRONG ANSWER YOU ARE WRONG! In reality, there is no wrong answer. Being asked that question isn’t truly a fair question. It’s actually a trick question. A question that begins at the concious mind and filters through to the subconscious, only to throw your mind into a blank stare.

In other words sometimes we can’t list what makes us happy, but when we are in the moment we can tell you one hundred or more things that make or create happiness for us. It’s a feeling AWE it’s a great feeling. 

Here we go, one of the first steps to feeling your way to happiness-

  1. Get a piece of paper 
  2. Draw a shape in the middle that you can write your name in, like a circle or square, it doesn’t matter what kind of shape.
  3. Write your name in the middle
  4. Next draw lines coming out from your name. 
  5. Write activities, music, thoughts, colors. 
  6. It can be as messy as you would like or as neat. This is ONLY YOURS you may share it or you may keep it to yourself.
  7. Now lay it down, pick it back up and read your name in the middle and create a sentence with one of your likes. Example: Teena LOVES Pink! Sometimes I will say I, Teena, love pink. 
  8. After you have said a wonderful positive statement that you love or makes you happy…close your eyes inhale, then exhale, see or visualize what you said and smile.
  9. Now you can understand what it means by feeling your way to happiness! 
  10. Repeat 7, 8, 9 throughout this Web you have created. Individually do each thing you wrote. Take time to feel the emotional attachment to each item you listed.

    You can do this daily, weekly, or when you need it. We will return to this activity several times. I may even repost it intermittently during our blogs. 

    This is a quick and easy way to begin setting and re-setting your vibration. It is also a simple way to begin gravitating towards adding the happy activities you love to do, towards you. Maybe you love to canoe and you complete the activity. Before long someone will mention, hey let’s go canoeing. 

    Take time to find what creates a happy feel good emotion for you and do more of that! I promise even through difficult times life is meant to be happy the majority of the time.
