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

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.

Sharing light with Kimmy. Striving to create a path between the present course of events and a new course; leading to new outcomes.


  1. Good post. We all need to take care of ourselves, before we can take care of others.

    I wish for you nothing but success, health and happiness in the coming year.

  2. I wish you the best in the New Year Kimmy...:)

  3. Waking up dizzily this morning. Darn, another booze-ful new year's eve.
    And, I tried to remember that last night, I thought about something called resolutions. Heck, I forgot about it already.

    Have a good year!

  4. Have a wonderful new year! I, myself, have been sober for over a year, so no hangover for me! Now I just have to focus on that resolution. For now, I am watching MUSE!

  5. Happy New Year!
    All the best for 2011 :)

  6. Love the butterfly pic for this blog post. Butterflies are free.
    Butterflies are souls from the Other Side, come back to tell us all is well.

    Never giving up is hard. I gave up a long time ago. But learned a powerful lesson. Check out my latest blog entry and you will understand.
    All the best for a peaceful New Year.
