Reflection and Release

For days now I have been trying to come up with the year-end blog.

How do you "Never Give Up", on situations you have little control of?

Reflection, and Release.

My dad saw the trials and tribulations I was going through in early 2010.


 His advice was clear. I needed mental and emotional "time outs." He kept saying, "Take time to take care of you."

It was a great lesson to learn. I immediately noticed that "words" weren't necessary for every single situation. It felt good not to try to control the outcome. And by allowing myself to let go, I was allowing myself to place ownership on others, instead of owning their successes and failures.

Know this! I never gave up. I just had to take a few steps to the side, to see the bigger picture. And to assess how I was needed, if at all. I was better prepared when I was needed.

The second part of 2010 learning was to walk away from what doesn't concern me. Let people do what they do. If it doesn't effect me, why let it affect me? (or vice versa..lol)

2011 brings more of the same. Family, work, life changes. I still want good things for my family. I will NEVER GIVE UP helping them, and allowing them to help me.

Happy New Year 2011.

Music Monday

Music to me is part of my life force. I do not think there has been one full day in my life without music.

This past year, when life has been a struggle at times, I turned to silence within me, and put the ear plugs in.

My playlist is some of the best 200 songs that I can recite on command. Now of course, I have more than 200 favorites. And not all of my songs are on playlist.com

But if you ever need a look into the real, raw Kimmy. These songs will give you insight, much more than words ever will.

Enjoy. Chat soon!

Joyeux Noël - Season of Giving Light

I speak about my daughter Alyssa more and more. She's a true blessing today for a family. (And not just mine!)

Alyssa works at a Help Desk that is open 24/7. She has day time hours, so she can attend school at night, but she does have off on Friday and Saturday.

This year, Christmas Eve is Friday, Christmas Day Saturday!

BONUS Right??

Alyssa's co-worker, that has less seniority was scheduled for today, Christmas day. He also has a family, and an 18 month old little boy. Alyssa offered to trade her Sunday hours, the day after, for today instead. He was very grateful, and accepted. The picture of her cubicle is from today, 12/25/2010.

Today, Christmas Day, my daughter gave. She gave when she didn't have to.

And while this is the very first Christmas without her waking up with us, we cannot be more proud of her. Tis the Season of Giving Light!

Merry Christmas!

Do you feel what I feel?





































Actually, it is not that bad.

I just take on a lot of the emotions others go through at this time, and it feels like I am stressed!

Looking forward to the weekend!

Eternally Evolving

When you get into that place of feeling appreciation of where you are and of who you are, and appreciation of what you are, and you accept that you are a never-ending, always unfolding Being, then you can stand in that delicate balance of being optimistic about what is to come, without being unhappy about where you stand.


Find a way of eagerly anticipating future changes, while at the same time you are in love and satisfied with who, what, where and how you be.

You can be fully satisfied with where you are, understanding that you're eternally evolving.

Transparent Art

I found this picture while searching Photobucket, and listening to Muse one Saturday night.

I tried to seek a poem, a lyric, a story about this girl.

I couldn't find one that fit.

I kept trying, but couldn't. Here's why.

Looking at her, she makes me feel exactly how I feel! That's why there are no words. How do you explain looking at her, seeing no expression, but knowing what she is thinking and feeling.  I am filled with emotion. However it's more like a lump in my throat.

Like people can see right through my "blog" and see who Kimmy is.

Amazing that I found this.  Perhaps when I am ready, I can meet the Artist.  She is local Chicago. I am local Crystal Lake.. less than an hr away.

Saturday full of SOUL

Sam Cooke - January 22, 1931 – December 11, 1964 Gone too soon...



A Change Is Gonna Come

I was born by the river in a little tent
Oh and just like the river I been a runnin' ever since
It's been a long, a long time coming but I know
A change gon' come oh yes it will
It's been too hard living but I'm afraid to die
Cuz I don't know what's up there beyond the sky
It's been a long, a long time coming but I know
A change gon' come oh yes it will

I go to the movie, and I go downtown
Somebody keep tellin me "don't hang around"
It's been a long, a long time coming, but i know
A change gon' come oh yes it will

Then I go to my brother
And I say "brother, help me please"
But he winds up knocking me
Back down on my knees
There been times that I thought I wouldn't last for long
Now think I'm able to carry on
It's been a long, along time coming but I know
A change gon' come, oh yes it will


Rest in peace.

Walking Away from Internal Noise

I think there is something to be said about walking away from drama and confrontation. Especially if you are the one angry, and you have no idea really why! 

Long day at work today. Husband sick. Daughter at work then finals, then out - working out.  I got home after a productive, yet tiring day. I was hungry, tired, voice hurt from talking all day.  Head hurt from lack of caffeine, and food. Hubby was on the phone, talking in a normal voice, didn't seem sick at all. Few minutes later, he was sick, hungry, dying, and in pain asking me what was for dinner. After I got chores done, I made dinner.

My head was pounding. Neck, shoulders, forehead.

He turned on the game, then went to sleep on the couch.  Whatever.  I was pissed. 

I decided to get up, take the laptop in the other room. I let go of the anger. I snuggled up on the other couch in silence, pulled up the covers, and just decided to blog.

Sometimes life doesn't make sense. I think I just needed quiet time, away from the television, away from the sick hubby. Might go take a bath after this post, and wash away the day.

Walking away, without incident might be the best way to get what I needed, without verbalizing my frustrations. Deep breaths, getting down the words, and letting the day go peaceful.

It's okay to be tired, frustrated.  Know what you need to calm down, without making the world know it. In my case, I needed to walk away from my own internal noise. It wasn't healthy, and would serve no purpose to vent it.

Enlarge the size of your heart and keep ignoring

For a Better World... Guest post by Sagar Sonker

People who are jealous, envious, not talk properly, egoistic, impostors, gossipers, behave differently in public, boast, brag, try to show-off their skills, are actually burdened, as they carry all these behavioral patterns in their mind, and their life is wasted in such things only. So, you don't have to get irritated.

You have to enlarge the size of your heart i.e. mind and make sure your behavior is not being affected by theirs. They will continue to be like this till their last breath and enjoy being like that, but what about you? Do you want to keep looking and caring for their attitude or do you want to improve yourself, play your role to the best of your ability and move ahead in life? Choice is yours.

Energy flows wherever attention goes, so even if in the mind you have irritation, you are actually sending them energy and empowering them to behave even more weird. So, just Ignore! That is how they are supposed to be. That is how they are asked by the World Drama to be.

Again, ignoring them does not mean dominate/denigrate or lower their value. They are valuable at their place. Ignoring means just letting them be the way they are, and not disturbing yourself and not getting influenced by their face, expressions, words, energy, vibrations. If someone behaves weird, do you really get thorns pricked to your cheeks? If someone doesn't smile at you or doesn't reply to your messages, do you really have stones thrown at you? Not really. How does it matter? Why should it matter? Others have their own set of thinking patterns, complications, mindsets, and most importantly, the freedom to behave in any way.

Remember, the ones who resolve your karmic debts actually create ones for themselves. Isn't this a favor on you? For example, if someone just comes and slaps you or irritates you... Now, if you remain stable, 'your' old/past karmic account is resolved, however, do you realize that they have just created one for themselves, which they will have to repay soon (as the Kalyug is coming to an end and we all have to go back to the Supreme Abode with zero karmic debts)? They are in fact, doing a huge favor on you.

Do you really have a choice other than ignoring them? You can get angry, infuriated and reactive, but do you really want to do this with such weak people? Do you really want to do this in front of people who lack the amount of understanding that you have? Do you want to dominate the people who do not have Shiv Baba's knowledge and who are less peaceful, less happy, less powerful than you? Not really! So, simply enlarge your heart. Tell yourself, it's okay... My self esteem does not diminish because of them. My confidence and my ability to create and present my talent is not dependent on them. They cannot (and CANNOT) steal my fruits of life or my value.

My self esteem lies in the fact that I am an ancestral soul, who has been instrumental in transforming this world into Golden Age. Who can be greater than Shiv Baba and me in the true sense of the term? They are probably just bragging about very materialistic and perishable things, and I here, despite having the crown of Golden Age, and despite knowing that I am going to be the richest in the world, have my own castle, and 100% peace and happiness very soon, I do not have ego or I do not boast about it. So, who is truly greater? Who has lived on this earth for the maximum period? Even if for now I am seeing unpleasant situations around, this is just 1/4th of the Drama, and they probably exist only during this 1/4th. I have been here for the rest of the peaceful 3/4th part of the Drama too. Whom does all the imperishable dynasty, wealth really belong to? Who is given inheritance of the seven virtues by Shiv Baba? Answer many more such questions to yourself, and you will be fine.

When Shiv Baba says, in any situation, sit in your seat of self esteem, this is exactly what it means. Remember all about your original self and your kingdom, which is actually going to be your future very soon.

Grateful Day

Thanksgiving has always been just another day at my mom and dad's.

My mom though has always made it a point to invite not just her children and spouses, but their parents, and siblings as well. I have to say, it makes life so much easier and enjoyable not having to "share the day."

My father in law drops off the HUGE turkey at my mom and dad's a few days before for preparation.  Then he goes home to cook the Cuban Ropa Vieja. Rick's sister Angela, and her husband John bring appetizers. Rick, Alyssa, and I bring deserts. Not only every one brings food, but we have wonderful culture and no one leaves without tons of food to take home.

Then as you sit and visit with all, its like you live there.  Jim, John, and Rick are sneaking playing Xbox..lol, the kids are playing, and it's time to just breathe and enjoy the company. Zero stress. None.

After dinner, kids are mingling with the adults, and it's time to show them the "Elf Yourself" video I made of the kids a few days ago.  We were laughing so hard.. I wasn't sure about showing my mom and dad one I made of them disco dancing, lol, but my dad laughed so hard he was crying.

It was that moment when I posted this on my SocialScope:

Great day, great company, grateful for family. Love days like this...

 

I realized that this is how we are meant to live every day, not just once a year. I know I take life too seriously. Today proved just let life happen. Enjoy the people that are meant to be in your life. Family. You cannot deny that there is a reason God chose them to be in your life.

It is a true blessing, and grateful day, to witness this today. Stillness, but not alone at all.

An Empath's Commandments

What is an empath?

Sylvia Brallier says "Can you feel what others around you are feeling? Are you sensitive to your surroundings? When you lay your hands on someone, do your hands know right where to go to help that person? Perhaps you are an empath. 

Curse or Blessing?

Being an empath is a double edged sword. It can be both a curse and a blessing. On one hand, you have the ability to intuit exactly what you need to do to make someone comfortable. On the other, it is easy to lose track of what you need, because you are so accustomed to caring for other's comfort before caring for your own. You have easy access to information about what is going on with the people around you, but sometimes it is hard to know your own mind."


Yes, I am in an awe - Kimmy

An Empath's Commandments taken from http://empathcommunity.eliselebeau.com  

  1. People are NOT your pet projects for you to fix.
  2. You are NOT an 'emotional mechanic'.
  3. Just because you're emotionally fine-tuned (as most empaths are) does not automatically obligate you to intervene.
  4. How others choose to live their life is not your call.
  5. Everybody handles trauma/ distress in their own fashion.
  6. People CAN change, but ONLY if they have the desire to.
  7. Interference is not a promise of good results. 
  8. There is nothing glamorous or cavalier about self-sacrifice. 
  9. Forcing change never works on anybody. 
  10. Accept that you can't change everyone's situation. That struggle is their personal journey, so give them the room they need to find their own brand of enlightenment down the road. 
  11. Offer your unconditional love and unbiased understanding. This is the most you can do for an ailing heart. 
  12. A listening ear is extremely helpful and has a bigger impact than you think. 
  13. All your actions resonate for many years. You just may not be present to see the results.
  14. Your gut instinct. The alarm in your head. The nagging voice in the back of your mind. That bad feeling that warns you. LISTEN TO IT. 
  15. Whatever you put out in this world comes right back to you. So tried and true. A real lesson in karma.
  16. Saying curse words, putting a curse on someone, or just the general desire to wish harm upon someone tends to have the negative effect of corrosion on your soul. You will feel it. 
  17. Meditation does work; helps calm you the heck down! Find any Youtube video on mediation and follow it to clear your brain cobwebs.
  18. Walk out of the room if encountering a heated battle, before your "fight or flight response" kicks in. Petty squabbles are never worth the emotional damage it causes to your armor.
  19. Arguments are pointless, incendiary and help no one. Unless you're a lawyer. 
  20. Some people involuntarily extinguish your light. They may not be aware of how toxic they are, but you do. Fixing them is futile and not your responsibility. Get far away from these people as you can. 
  21. Be the bigger person. If someone says something nasty to you, you say "Thank you for your kind words." and walk away. Be classy. They may scoff, they may retort, but after some time passes one thing is always guaranteed. And that nagging feeling at the back of their mind, it's called shame.
  22. You pick up bad emotions, not only good ones. It's important to pinpoint where they come from.
  23. If you feel overwhelmed and nothing stressful is occurring in your life, you're accidentally picking up nasty vibes from someone nearby or some local event. Time to get away for a bit.
  24. It's narcissistic to believe it's your duty to 'fix' people. Wanting to help and believing you have to are 2 very different things.

Never wanted a shadow

I don't need a friend who changes when I change and who nods when I nod; my shadow does that much better. ~Plutarch

Being a hermit has it's advantages, and I mean that!  Having online connections, of like minded people has forced me to look within, and question and grow. 

Since I have abandoned almost everyone except for family, I have found that the rat race of life still happens out there. 

I just don't have to be apart of it. 

I changed only what I wanted in my circle.

I learned some interesting divorce news about an old friend.  I think our mutual friend told me just to see my reaction. Maybe she was looking for a big bashing post!! 

I guess this old friend went through all sorts of explaining and asking others not to tell me, so I wouldn't find out.  Turns out all of it was a waste of her time.  Guess what? It simply doesn't concern me. 

That's the thought of my growing as a human being.  I have just enough time to work, come home, be a wife, a mom, an auntie, and a sister. I have websites, music, work colleagues, online friends to share and grow with.

I cannot take care of my life, my house, my job, my bills, my family with seeking out others problems.  Guilty as I was in the past, I am just too old and tired.  There are plenty of people that I have met on blogs, boards, Twitter, Facebook, that are extremely like minded, but not to the point of agreeing just to agree.

Find friends that challenge you, make you a better person.  Don't ever allow someone to make you feel inferior. Accept everything about yourself - I mean everything, You are you and that is the beginning and the end - no apologies, no regrets.

Sorry to let the drama llamas down.  If you would like, I can post a Glee video, that you can think it is about you? I hope that helps.

No, not the Rocky Horror Picture Show, sorry, couldn't find it.

Life's little Precious Moments

Things may change in just a flash,
so live the life on day-to-day
Endure everyday with passion,
as if it's the last turn of your way
 
Give a meaning to the life,
without holding back in fear
In the moments of happiness,
remember to leave space for a tear

Make plans and set the goal
Always listen to your soul
It's the journey not destination
That provides more gratification
 


Each day is a little life,
to live, to breathe, to wonder and desire
 
So don't wait for a special day,
to feel, to celebrate, to ponder and aspire

Life is like a hilly river,
from sinking banks to vanishing currents
Keep your feet firmly on ground,
don't let yourself controlled by the events
 
Dream big but appreciate smaller things,
make no regrets and harsh comments
 
In search of a miracle,
don't miss life's little precious moments

Life's little precious moments by Deependra Kumar Jha

Taken from Rays of the Dawn - Selfishness

Selfishness is the opposite of generosity. It is an offspring of greed and originates in the self-preservation instinct. Selfish people are concerned solely with their own needs, wants, and desires.

In the last analysis, selfishness means that a person is living for him or herself alone, unconcerned as to the welfare of others, disinterested in any organization -- be it local, state or national.

We are all in love with ourselves to a certain extent. No one wants to change places with anyone else without being assured of personal gratifications.

We are all necessarily self-centered. We tend to concentrate on those things that concern us personally and those things that we customarily identify with our real selves.

Yet, if all people were selfish, society would be chaos. Fortunately, many people have evolved far enough to have eliminated this undesirable trait.

Were this not true, governments, organizations, and social gatherings would be impeded by the selfish.

In this world we should recognize that we are on equal footing with our associates.

If we should gain the desirable things of life such as wealth, prestige, or fame, we should realize that we acquired them either by chance or by the operation of Natural Law.

We should entertain no selfish desire to take away what someone else has rightfully earned.

Many people, due to the operation of Natural Law, acquire riches.

Others live in comparative poverty.

Those who live in poverty and who do not understand the operation of the Law will be inclined by comparing their own plight and other, to become selfish to the extent of criticizing, even hating, those more fortunate.

Some individuals have an abundance of the good things of life -- more, in fact, than they need. Instead of sharing their excess worldly goods among those less fortunate, they are guilty of ignoring the apparent need of others. Here, again, is an expression of selfishness. If these individuals understood the Natural Law involved, they would comprehend Jesus' teaching, "It is more blessed to give than to receive."

Many an overambitious person who has used selfishness and greed to amass wealth has sought to relieve self-condemnation by engaging in a program of charity and social welfare.

Although there is a certain amount of pride and self-satisfaction involved in such philanthropy, still such activities tend to sublimate the baser emotions of greed and selfishness. Even in our homes, where selfishness should find no refuge, many an individual will shower loved ones with gifts on certain occasions to ease the giver's conscience about his or her habitual selfishness.

One of the most difficult lessons we have to learn in life is that we are ONE with all people. Since we are individuals, we are so absorbed in thinking of self that we tend to ignore the Only through such an understanding can we bring help to our friends and neighbors -- who are ONE with us in spirit and in essence.

The Kimmy Sharing Light show

I learned a hard truth today in my journey. Thanks Junior.

I don't like accepting things I cannot change. I see an opportunity in changing everything, at every moment, for every situation.  Anything less is failure. This is my downfall.

I live with high expectations for myself, and with that, I live with even higher expectations from those that should have learned from my mistakes and how I triumph over them!  OH MY GOODNESS.  Are you getting a glimpse in my crazy psyche??  LOL.  This is a great awakening.

Photobucket

Each person is like an actor who wants to run the whole show, that's me, "The Kimmy Show. "

All this pressure, of running, promoting, sharing, "The Kimmy Show"  and setting the expectation that all who don't follow my ideas, will fail, cause I am sharing light dammit!! LISTEN or despair.

Junior tells me, "Your not unique like you think you are."
Kimmy says, "Who do you think you are? Yes,  I am  KIMMY of  KIMMY SHARING LIGHT"

I thought I would take a different approach, helping, sharing. However, after negative response, I was brought to a different realization. Some people don't want help, and some families would rather find something, or someone to blame, (even their own genes), in lieu of trying.

It is not my place to help the world, nor judge when someone refuses.

Of course, I don't "get it."  And asking why now just seems moot.

  1. What is my intent? 
  2. Does it affect me, or my immediate family?

If the answer is no, am I even bothered? Or is my ego telling me I SHOULD be bothered?

Kimmy Sharing Light, also means, Kimmy Letting Go.

I can focus on doing more, for myself, and family.  I am blessed with wonderful family, inlaws, nieces and nephews.

Week ending Responsibility

It has been a long week, with my family and myself under the weather. We stayed strong, didn't miss work, and most of all, took care of our responsibilities.

Whether it is work, school, volunteer work, a commitment is important to take seriously.

Our society lets us blame "dis-eases" and "gene pool factors" for our failures, however excuses are only excuses. Responsibility will always be better to help the next generation.

Now it is the weekend, the sun is shining, and it is our time as a family to bond, and spend time together.

Update on Alyssa.  Besides working full time, school three nights a week, and softball, she has started writing for The Two Cents.com  Right now, she is the reviewer for Sons on Anarchy, an awesome show on Tuesdays on FX.  She is hoping to pick up a few more shows in January/February 2011. 

You can find her first two articles here.

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend with their loved ones.

Ben Stein confession - a must add for Sharing Light

Only hope we find GOD again before it is too late ! !

The following was written by Ben Stein and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary.

My confession:

I am a Jew, and every single one of my ancestors was Jewish. And it does not bother me even a little bit when people call those beautiful lit up, bejeweled trees, Christmas trees... I don't feel threatened..


I don't feel discriminated against.. That's what they are, Christmas trees.

It doesn't bother me a bit when people say, 'Merry Christmas' to me. I don't think they are slighting me or getting ready to put me in a ghetto. In fact, I kind of like it. It shows that we are all brothers and sisters celebrating this happy time of year. It doesn't bother me at all that there is a manger scene on display at a key intersection near my beach house in Malibu ... If people want a creche, it's just as fine with me as is the Menorah a few hundred yards away.

I don't like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don't think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period. I have no idea where the concept came from, that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can't find it in the Constitution and I don't like it being shoved down my throat.

Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship celebrities and we aren't allowed to worship God as we understand Him? I guess that's a sign that I'm getting old, too. But there are a lot of us who are wondering where these celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to.

In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different: This is not intended to be a joke; it's not funny, it's intended to get you thinking.

Billy Graham's daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and Jane Clayson asked her 'How could God let something like this happen?' (regarding Hurricane Katrina).. Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response.. She said, 'I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we've been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives. And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?'

In light of recent events... terrorists attack, school shootings, etc.. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body found a few years ago) complained she didn't want prayer in our schools, and we said OK. Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school. The Bible says thou shalt not kill; thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK.

Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehave, because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock's son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he's talking about.. And we said okay..

Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.

Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with 'WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.'

Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says. Funny how you can send 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing. Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.

Are you laughing yet?

Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it.

Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us.

Pass it on if you think it has merit.

If not, then just discard it... no one will know you did. But, if you discard this thought process, don't sit back and complain about what bad shape the world is in.

My Best Regards, Honestly and respectfully,
Ben S

The Light is in your Heart

The light is in your heart.
It is pointless to seek elsewhere.
The sacred mountain is in your heart.
Everyone has a magic temple inside,
just meditate inside.

Not Fooling anyone

It is easy to dodge our responsibilities, but we cannot dodge the consequences of dodging our responsibilities.

I think the truth of that statement stands alone, don't you?

Everything comes full circle.

Feeling Good



Muse's cover of Nina Simone's version of 'Feeing Good' has been named the best cover song of all time. Music fans voted online in an NME.COM poll

Birds flying high you know how I feel
Sun in the sky you know how I feel
Reeds driftin' on by you know how I feel

It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
For me
And I'm feeling good

Fish in the sea you know how I feel
River running free you know how I feel
Blossom in the tree you know how I feel

It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
For me
And I'm feeling good

Dragonfly out in the sun you know what I mean, don't you know
Butterflies all havin' fun you know what I mean
Sleep in peace when the day is done
And this old world is a new world
And a bold world
For me

Stars when you shine you know how I feel
Scent of the pine you know how I feel
Oh freedom is mine
And I know how I feel

It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
For me
And I'm feeling good

Bring light into the Darkness

We cannot hold a torch to light another path without brightening our own.

A constantly awakened lamp brings light into the darkness.

When things don't happen the right way, check what kind of thoughts you are having.  

Do you think, 'things don't happen the right way anymore? Or people are like this anyway?

Tell yourself every day, 'I am the lighted lamp which dispels the darkness around. 

When I show people the right way, everything will be all right with myself too. 
I have to set the right example for myself, and for those around me.

You are the Artist

I am Cassata, a faerie princess of the angel folk, and I come to you today to share a message with all whose hearts are being guided to hear me.

As you moved into dream state last evening, did you see the pale shimmering pinks, blues and greens sparkling with your closed eyes? 

As you awoke to start your beautiful day, did these colors appear before you once again?  



This is magic faerie dust infusing your dreams to bring the sparkle back into your desires. 

What a beautiful gift from the faeries to each of you.

As I look at each of you, you shimmer different colors of the rainbow.  Some of you are shimmering pale blue, some pale purple, some pale yellow, some of you are combinations of all the colors. 

Each of you are exquisite. 

As you walk along the path of your day, wherever you go, you will dust the ground and all around you with your sparkling essence through your touch and your words.  See the beauty and magic within every experience of your day.

Magical heart blessings to all!

20 Tips To Feel The Joy And Dance With Life by Tess Marshall

Ever since there have been human beings, they have given themselves over to too little joy. That alone my friends, is our original sin. 

I should only believe in a God who knows how to dance. – Henri Matisse 

Living in our chaotic world it’s easy to get caught up in every emotion but joy.  




 Don’t we all want a little more joy in our lives? 

Someone who is truly joyful doesn’t get hooked into what’s wrong with our world. It doesn’t mean they don’t care. It means they don’t live in fear. It’s impossible to be fearful and joyful at the same time.

Don’t allow tension, anxiety, depression or world events steal your joy.

How to feel joy and dance with life:

  1. Call forth feelings of love and appreciation for yourself. Everybody has days when they feel unworthy of love. Think of a child you love and transfer those loving feelings to yourself. Let the warm and heartfelt feeling blanket you from head to toe.
  2. Find pleasure in simple things. It’s easy to live a simple life when you can find appreciation for simple things. Feelings of lack come from overlooking the pleasure of a cold drink, a hug, a new book or a simple blade of grass.
  3. Stay out of debt. Debt is one of the leading causes of emotional and psychological stress. Last year I decided to eliminate one purchase a month. In January it was designer coffee, in February it was magazines, in March it was new clothes and as the 2009 comes to an end I rarely have any unnecessary purchases.
  4. How are you giving back to life? Do something altruistic and fun. This year we donated money to “Wounded Warriors” and “The Smile Train.” In 2010 we are going to work with wwww.peanutbutterplan.org. People gather to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and then hand them out to the homeless.
  5. Forgive yourself and others. Is someone in your life you need to forgive and can’t or won’t for some reason? Become aware of the story you tell yourself about this person. Next, drop the story. Everyone deserves another chance. Resentment is like having a ball and chain around you ankle that weighs you down. Choose to begin with a clean slate each morning.
  6. Eliminate gossip in your life. For the next 24 hours only speak positively about others. Tiger Woods and his family is an example of gossip gone wrong. In order for Tiger to heal his life he needs our support and prayers not our gossip and insane inquiry of details.
  7. Avoid unhappy people. Refuse to be in the presence of people who bring you down or deplete your energy. Surrounding yourself with happy and successful people sounds selfish. It’s not. It’s one of the healthiest things you can do for yourself.
  8. Get off the pity pot. Drop your story about your past. It’s impossible to be happy if you blame others for your life circumstances. You aren’t responsible for what happened to you in your childhood. You are responsible for how you handle it today
  9. Find hobbies that make time stand still. In our busy lives many of us don’t allow time to play or get creative. Pursuing a hobby is a joyful gift to your self.
  10. Learn to accept constructive criticism. I was twenty two years old, out-of-control and an immature mother when my brother-in-law, Paul, looked me in the eyes and said, “you need help.” With a few months I decided to get counseling. Because I didn’t take it personally his comment changed my life.
  11. Live by the golden rule. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Being able to put myself in another’s shoes has allowed me to be kind, generous and caring when I haven’t wanted to be. We are all on the same path doing the best we know how to do.
  12. Choose calm over drama. It’s easy to get caught up in what is going on around you. Inner peace is being able to remain centered in any kind of difficulty.
  13. Focus on good. Begin every morning by writing down five things that are right in your world. Today I have my health, my home, a car that runs, food in my refrigerator and people who love me. When we focus on good it multiplies.
  14. Change your routine. We are creatures of habit. Take an alternative route to work, change your cologne and sleep on the other side of the bed. This expands creativity and allows you see things in a different light.
  15. Radiate positive energy. Decide each morning that you will make it a great day. Choose to smile, laugh and help others. Doing so adds truth and beauty to our world.
  16. Be open to change. If you were brave what’s one thing you would do differently? Learn to be flexible and open to the opinions of others. Notice any resistance in your life. When we can embrace change fears fade away.
  17. Learn to say “no.” Often we say “yes” out of obligation or guilt. I have learned to say, “No, that’s not going to work for me” when someone asks me to do something I don’t want to do. I never offer an excuse. Usually after repeating the line twice the other person backs down.
  18. Read inspiring poetry and uplifting books. You always feel better when you do. This is why “Chicken Soup for the Soul” books are best sellers.
  19. Move your body. Being active gets endorphins going and creates feel good energy. Our bodies are built for exercising. I saw a 79 year old man finish the iron man in Hawaii for the eleventh time in a row. I’ll never forget it.
  20. Express love. Do you share your love with those around you? Often we don’t tell people how we feel about them. We think they “should know.” Maybe it’s uncomfortable for you to do so. Begin to practice telling others: I love you, I care about you, you are important to me. Hug and kiss when you greet the people who mean the most to you. Call somebody and tell them you are thinking of them. You have the power to uplift others. When you do so you are uplifted as well. 
We decide how much joy we experience every day.  We decide whether we trudge or dance through life. 

Please share with us your thoughts below.  

In what way do you give yourself away to “to too little joy?”

What would “understanding how to dance” look like in your life?”

What might you do to encourage others to “dance?”

Of its rustling foliage

Trees are poems that earth writes upon the sky,  We fell them down and turn them into paper,  That we may record our emptiness.
 

-   Kahlil Gibran

All it has experienced, tasted, suffered:
 

The course of years, generations of animals,
Oppression, recovery, friendship of sun and Wind will pour forth each day in the song
Of its rustling foliage, in the friendly
 

Gesture of its gently swaying crown,
In the delicate sweet scent of resinous
Sap moistening the sleep-glued buds,
 

And the eternal game of lights and
Shadows it plays with itself, content.
 

-   Herman Hesse, 1877 - 1962

My Truth and Occasional Downfall

I have the need to be open and honest about who I am here on Kimmy Sharing Light. Why? Cause it isn't all about butterflies and angels,

Years ago, I blogged before blogging was cool.  I actually still have the Yahoo Group Soulthoughts. I have posts dating back to 2004, and some before that from Diaryland that I transferred in 2004.

Those were dark days. I go back and read them from time to time, and wonder how anyone dealt with my psychosis. I took everything as a personal slam.

I bashed others in return. I wanted to fight. I wanted the truth about me, and where I was going in life.

As a borderline personality, as stated in Girl, Interrupted, I thought I was completely messed up for life. But a strange thing happened when I would re-read my words. I realized "Kimmy" was the problem, and not the people around me. As years went by, I found that by writing in a journal, I could go back and laugh at myself, or worse, cringe on how freakin crazy I am.

Somewhere in 2005-2006, I went on my "spiritual" journey. I was free from hate, and was able to embrace all. Jesus, spirituality, Yoga, exercise, eating well. My life was probably the best ever.

Then life caught up. Work was at it's low. Money was tight, and alcohol was a great, great release. I could drink a bottle of RUM, and a six pack.  It did nothing for my relationships, but I was able to escape all the toils of the day.

I have spent the last few years, since 2007, trying to seek again on what my role is in this life. This is another reason for Sharing Light in my journey. Sometimes my readers that "know" me in real life think I am talking about them. 99% of the time, I am talking about ME. But there are times, that I use my website to respond to something I saw, or heard.  However, ALL of the time, is to speak my mind about responsibility and accountability. I mean it, how can we as the human culture get better, if we are constantly looking for someone or something to BLAME!  That doesn't help anyone, especially our young minds that look to us to learn the right way. My mom use to blame my friends, one friend in particular for all my bad deeds. My mom didn't get that she was enabling me to always find someone else at fault. It took decades to learn that lesson on my own.

Besides work, home, and raising my daughter, who is 19 and needs to learn better than I did, I just try to focus on the moment I am in.  I have been sober since December 2009, and not interested in drinking at all. I recently quit smoking too. I miss the menthol cigarettes, but it was time. I didn't want to quit, but I did want the money from the cigarettes.

As for friendships, it's not my specialty. LOL. I tend to speak my mind.  I am not the type of friend that holds your hand you are touching a hot stove. I take a pan, and beat you over the head with it. I noticed people don't like that. I don't care. Accept everything about yourself - I mean everything, You are you and that is the beginning and the end - no apologies, no regrets.
