Reflection and Release

Friday, December 31, 2010

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

Monday, December 27, 2010

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

Saturday, December 25, 2010

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!

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

Tuesday, December 21, 2010

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.

--- Abraham

Thursday Thought

I would rather have a mind opened by wonder than one closed by belief.

Transparent Art

Sunday, December 12, 2010

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

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

Monday, December 6, 2010

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

Wednesday, December 1, 2010

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.
