Really? Are you joking?

I know I have posted two already, but just one more and I will be done, for today! Okay? Sounds good to me!

This is a little heartfelt story that most of you could not imagine.

I have a confession to make. Me, Teena Drake, has video fright. I don’t know why this is the craziest thing! I am working on it, but I know I am struggling because of my actions from today.

In the beginning of the day, once I realized my trip of ten hours had been delayed, I planned to write a little bit. I might create one post, but it is time to ramp up my game. Ugh! The truth hurts sometimes. However, as I was researching for a post from my mother, it became more and more clear as to why my ‘traffic’ is limited on my website. I mean, I almost drowned in the sea of postings, rhymes, words, images. Then the thought to follow more bloggers came to mind and I decided to search. I felt like Mr. Wiggles and Mr. Waggles walking up the hill and down the hill, up the hill and down the hill.Until I reach the top to find it was not as clear as what my final destination, really was.

Anywhooooo, I continued to search for The Mind of Kitty blog and for new ones I would enjoy. (Pause, big deep breath in and now exhale), Nothing! I found nothing. By the time I was finished I couldn’t even find my own blog. This is not to blame any of the websites. Heck, I am amazed at all of your potentials…( I am saying that to the website developers). However, tell that to the ninety percent of social media readers/watchers; what is it called? It is not television viewers, not really texters, millennials? Noooo because they were all ages and all walks of life. I guess ‘societers’. Yes, I made that word up. They do not care nor have time to search for one person, let alone have time to read it all. That’s when I realized it is not that people don’t read blogs and enjoy them, but rather they really don’t have time. I mean once I read 7 different bloggers my day was half over. Hence, another reason I  know I am struggling with making videos.

Why? Because like I said before, once I realized the trip was off, I took my shower and dressed for work. Then I continued to find one excuse after another. I set up the tri-pod- that is all I did, I put on makeup, fixed my hair ten times… then it was time for a snack, shew I was starved. Excuse after excuse. Well, it is getting dark so Eric may be home soon. Darn, I missed my chance again.

I have literally cleaned the house, washed all dishes, started the laundry, packed and unpacked again. Finally, I realized it and couldn’t risk blogging about it! Someone asked me, “What about speaking to large groups?”

I have no problem and the larger the group the better, but that video camera and I (pause, big inhale and exhale) we are going to come to an agreement. Until then I want to apologize if I become too wordy and you just wanted to know the message or if there was one. Therefore, I am completing this post with a promise!!!!! (I am smiling really big and so excited to type my promise…), “Oh, are you still waiting for me?”

I Promise, from now on I will no longer waste your time! I will incorporate a Highlighted words somewhere at the top of the post and in the excerpt that says, “This contains a message for you to improve your life for the best.”

Okay, it might just say this is important in bold letters! However, I promise if it is me, Teena Drake, just writing funny thoughts in my head, I will let you know! 

Shew! I hope that helped you, it made me feel a great deal better. One more thing, once I see my friend at Kentuckiana News and she shakes the fears away from me, I will keep my video blogs short and sweet, yet uplifting and educational. We have so many great things to share with you. I am excited to be living and of course, writing.

I know life gets messy and that is okay. We would be bored without a couple or more messes in our lives.

If you are still reading this blog until the end, pssst I have something to tell you…

Follow me, if you want.

THANK YOU!!!!!! From the bottom of my heart, I wish nothing more than for something I write, helps another. If only in laughter or illuminating a thought. Whether you agree with me or disagree, it is still stimulating you to take action and quit sitting and waiting for life to happen to or for you! Wow, that was refreshing!

Inspire me??

Inspire me, love me, caress me, give me adventure, give me a life, make me happy, I need you, I need…I, me, myself, oh there is a you? 

I know the beginning of this entry is a bit bizarre, but it wouldn’t be me writing if it was ‘normal’. 

As I search for inspiration on this beautiful Friday, I almost become overwhelmed with topics to write about. Then it happened, I realized my topic today is ME or should I say YOU! 

KEEP READING IT’S NOT REALLY JUST ABOUT ME!

As you have probably figured out by now my soul purpose in life is to research, create an atmosphere and educate you on how to be happy! Yes, that is my mission and vision. My belief is that my new knowledge combined with my past learning (critical thinking past students) I believe I can teach the entire world how to find their own happiness!!! 

Therefore, here is the first idea you must understand before anything you learn, from me, can help you. 

Ready? Anticipation building? You feel your very special spirit and all your cells jumping up and down, to hear what your first step is? Okayyyyy….

ONLY YOU, ONLY YOU, ONLY YOU, ONLY YOU CAN CREATE YOUR HAPPINESS. Now that I shouted that statement let me do my little educator trick… (I am whispering like the tiny voice in your head does all the time called you concious) you and only you can create your own happiness no matter what no, if, ands or butts! 

After reading that you are probably saying…”Wow!! Teena that was a big fat let down. I already knew that, but if I knew how, I would do it. That’s why I expect everyone else to make me happy. I am trying to be what they want me to be. I do for them to make them happy why can’t I have the same in return?” 

Please don’t give up on my lessons for you yet!!!! I do understand everything you are saying. To validate my last statement, let me attempt to give YOU some of YOUR THOUGHTS. (If you don’t need validation from me, skip the next paragraph).

“Butt (no I am not misspelling but I believe the word should almost always have the definition of ass) Teena he did this to me. He beat me, he cheated on me, he didn’t give me enough attention. Or she bitches all the time, she is boring, she gives too much to the kids. Or you don’t understand I am sick and no one understands how much I have suffered. My mom is mean. My family is abusive.”

I could literally go on for pages and pages with the statements I have heard why they aren’t happy, due to an outside incident. 

“So how could it be true? How if I have all this baggage or what I entitle- paradigm, could it be possible that only I can make me happy?”

That above question is for both you and I. I always asked the same question. Idk how I just know the answer is YES! It is true you and only you can make or create your own happiness.

Think about a time when you were entering a situation and something didn’t Feel right, butt you shoved your questioning or not good feeling aside. The person in the situation even convinced you to not listen to your own intuition.  Therefore, you, proceeded only to result in a moment of misery or worse depression. That situation or that person didn’t make you miserable nor did he or she make you happy! You had the feeling of, hmmm I am not sure I feel good about this. Yet you continued to persist almost begging for the outside people or event to MAKE or CREATE your happiness. 

It is you who creates your happiness or sadness. Why do you think religions teach “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” 

Or Scientist teach for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. 

Because how you feel is from you and if you feel happy, you will be happy. You will see happiness in others. It is extremely difficult to feel happy and bubbly around someone who is gloom and doom. 

Please do not misunderstand I have had my fair share of low points in my life. I have felt the outside forces pulling me down. However, after several months of sitting in silence mostly by myself or at least in my own brain, I promise you and I create our own happiness! 

I do not know how many more times I will write this message, because it keeps coming up. However, I promise it is the first and only first step you must take or concept you must accept before you can be successful at finding your own happiness. 

To me myself and I- I love you!! Try it…look in the mirror and say I LOVE YOU. Next begin to feel the happy feeling. Even if it is for a fleeting moment you will begin to desire that feeling and search for more ways to create your happiness.
