Peace in our Hearts

Saturday, December 31, 2011

Communication is the key to peace.

We try with all our might to make it more complicated. Whether it is with our world leaders or our neighbors next door to us, communication is the key to open our hearts to one another.

Without verbally opening up to each other, how can we know how we feel? Yes, the time is coming soon where we will be able to communicate without words.

We will look into each others eyes and will know the feelings in each others hearts at a glance.

What a wondrous time that will be. There will be no more secrets. We will be open with our thoughts, free to let each other know what we think. This is already starting to happen.

We are beginning to use the tools. We are re-membering what a natural feeling this is only to be stopped by our human thoughts of fear. "What if they don't like what I am saying? What if I hurt their feelings with my truth? What if I explode with my anger?"

Please don't be afraid of their reaction as it can be a source to more communication. Let us be open with kindness in our hearts. These are tools to be developed and with use we will perfect them.

Enjoy the learning process. We may stumble along the way but we can pick ourselves up and begin again. We are all in this together.

Without the openness of communication there will be barriers that build into strong walls of resentment. Haven't we seen this with people in our daily lives?

Let us talk with those who cause turmoil in our lives. Thank them for the lessons they have presented.

After openly communicating, feel the heaviness attached to your heart lift. Feel the closeness to this person. If this is not possible, bless them anyway and move on. Use discernment.

This will cut the attachment to the uneasiness that has been experienced. Then we will have peace in our hearts.

Things Happen For A Reason

Things happen for a reason!

We dare not, question why!

We may not ever know, the answer and time, just passes by.

No matter how we access it, these things, still remain a blank.

If it's bad, we don't want to know, but should it be good, who, do we thank?

Whichever it may be, we have to take it. For if you wager a guess, chances are, you'll not win. Just keep in mind, whatever happens in our lives, is all about destiny. There's not much you can do, to change it, so live your life, in harmony.

Perhaps, one day down the road, it will not be of concern, anymore.

For life, keeps you constantly in it's spell and there is, no why, or
wherefore!

Whirlwind of Enlightenment

Saturday, December 17, 2011

Definition of WHIRLWIND

1. : a small rotating windstorm of limited extent 
2. : a confused rush : Whirl <a whirlwind of meetings>  
3. : a violent or destructive force or agency

When you seek, you shall find. In my chaotic few weeks, I have struggled to find an explanation, and/or answers how to get past this without lashing out.  

Then..this was shared with me late last night. 

Names have been removed because this is advice to ME, not them.

"You are pissed off and frustrated because none of them are behaving the way you think they should.   

You are still being sucked in by this dysfunctional merry-go-round……you are still emotionally and detrimentally enmeshed in this.   

If you want to get untangled from this mess, you will have to change your reaction, and thought process to maintain your mental health and find some peace.   

Your anger serves no good purpose. You need to let go; give it to God….He’s got lessons to give.   

When you feel yourself being pulled in, all you need to do is, (say aloud or in your head)…..“Bless them on their chosen path”, and get out of the way.   ‘Stick With You’ because you are the only one you can change.    

By setting this example for your own, maybe you can break the cycle of enmeshment in your daughter's future relationships."

Thank you for this great advice Aja.  I know I can sit in my own pity party, lash out, or decide the only thing I can do is accept my fate, and break the patterns passed down from generations of dysfunction.

Just be quiet

Thursday, December 15, 2011

I think this post has been coming for a while now.

We live in a communication haven, (heaven), lol.  However we also have lived in a "don't ask don't tell" type of world.

Many people choose to look the other way, instead of engage in conflict, challenge others, or simply do what is right.  The Penn State scandal proved that to us.  Say nothing, because it will hurt the "school", because the "school's image" was more important that the crimes to children.

Sadly, I have dealt with this in my career, and in my personal life.  We are suppose to allow people to abuse others, simply because no one wants to deal with the abuser. Let's bow down to the screamer and the yeller, and hope we get back to normal soon. How nice would it be to put the abuser in his/her place, and force them to face consequences?

I am tired of being "quiet"!  What does that get me?

NOTHING.  My elders taught me to "take care of myself", and "stand up for myself", however today, they chose the path of the weak. Lower their heads and ignore what is right. Even worse, they remind me of Sandusky's wife!  Blame everyone else but the abuser!! THEN pull at my family's solid core, and place guilt on us?  That sounds like a bully to me!! 

When you make your choices, no matter what they are, live with it. When karma comes around to bite you in your ass, look in the mirror, and not who else you can blame!!

I know who I am, and although people don't like it, you always know where I am at. I am not afraid of conflict, or a fight!  How else can you get past the difficult times?

CHALLENGE each other, or walk away. There is no room for wishy washy cowards who hide behind their psychosis and mistakes.

Or don't. Do not expect me to play the "nodding" game.  I was never good at that. Either hit me, or walk away.

Communication Breakdown

Monday, December 12, 2011

Exhausted.

Why am I so stressed and exhausted? Because it seems that if I don't referee communication in my family, extended and non extended, nothing is said, and I live in silence.

Which for me is a fate worse than death.

In order to stop being the mediator, I have to learn to accept the silence, as it is not mine to control. I can feel the energy waves in the room, and it is like a boxing ring, or worse, a Soap Opera drama atmosphere.

It's only 6pm, and I wish to just go to bed, and escape this silence.

Do I feel the others in the room, wanting me to break the silence and open the lines up? Is that my duty, my job, my destiny? lol.

OR.. do I publish this post, and get some chocolate chip COOKIES!!!

SOLD!

When the light is dimmed

Thursday, December 8, 2011

Sometimes life is good, great even. Sometimes we stumble.

Right now, it seems that everything I know, was turned upside down, but I am told, and directed just to let it play.

Struggling with wanting the best for my family, and knowing some things are not mine to control has been my clarity.

My good friend Janet shared this with me today. "The two greatest gifts a parent can give their child is roots and wings!!" How true is that!!

Light can be dimmed, but there is still light. Look for it, and it will be there!

Cry Out in Your Weakness

Where lowland is,
that’s where water goes. All medicine wants
is pain to cure. . . .

Tear the binding from around the foot
of your soul, and let it race around the track
in front of the crowd. . . .

Give your weakness
to one who helps.

Crying out loud and weeping are great resources.
 
A nursing mother, all she does
is wait to hear her child.

Just a little beginning-whimper,
and she’s there.

God created the child, that is, your wanting,
so that it might cry out, so that milk might come.

Cry out! Don’t be stolid and silent
with your pain. Lament! And let the milk
of loving flow into you.

Sons of Anarchy – Recap & Review – To Be, Act Two
Original Air Date: Dec 6, 2011

After another incredible season that managed to break records, break some of our hearts, and break several remotes that were thrown at the TV, we have finally made it to the final episode of season four. This time when the reaper comes on the screen it is the last time we will see it until next September.

Last week we left off with Clay in the hospital and Jax has finally read the letters and knows what Clay did to his father. Jax knows what he has to do to protect what his father was trying to build, but he is still determined to get out of the club. Tara has officially lost her marbles. Gemma is having issues with the fact that not only did she give Jax the letters, but they are not even going to keep him in Charming. Otto ratted out Bobby and Juice ratted out the entire club. Tig managed to stir up a storm with the Niners and with Laroy which will still need to be settled and all of these ends need to be tied up in the next hour… Lets see what happens!

Philosophy by Seth Henderson

Thursday, November 24, 2011

"The fact of the matter is that life is really very short and death is absolutely certain for all of us. It really is true that none of us are getting out of here alive and we should never forget this fundamental existential truth. Since death is real and inevitable for all of us, how then should we live our lives? We should commit ourselves to following our hearts and doing what we most love and what we most want to do in life.

It is absolutely essential that you ask yourself what it is that you really care the most about.

What are your passions?

What are your deepest yearnings?

If you could do absolutely anything in the world, what is it that you would do?

Your heart knows the answers to these questions. It is whispering to you right now this very moment so listen to it and follow it. It will always be your best guide in life.

There are two important aspects to following your heart.

First, we need to develop our self-awareness skills so that we can know when we are truly following our hearts and when we’ve lost our way. It is actually easier than it sounds because when we are truly following our hearts we are tapped into our deepest passions in life. We are doing what we most love and we find our lives full of increased energy, greater creativity, purpose, joy, and happiness. We simply feel more alive and we are moving within the flow of life.

How do you know when you’ve stopped following your heart? When the opposite occurs—decreased energy, lack of creativity, no real sense of purpose and you aren’t particularly happy. You have stepped out of the flow of life and are just drifting along. When this happens the solution is simple: Choose again. Reconnect again with your heart. As long as you are alive, it is never too late.

You are free in each moment to choose the path of your heart and it never stops whispering to you, urging you to follow it.

The second key to successfully following your heart is that you will need to learn how to deal with fear. It is fear which prevents most people from reaching their fullest potential in life—fear of failure, fear of rejection from people we care about, fear that we simply aren’t good enough, and sometimes even fear of our own potential greatness.

Unfortunately no one else can overcome fear for us. Fear is something that you must learn to master on your own. Of course courage is the major strategy for learning to master fear for most people and we should certainly develop courage to the greatest extent we are able to. However, for me the insight that has personally helped me the most when dealing with fear has been to understand that fear is primarily a creation of the mind. I create it in my mind—it doesn’t really exist outside the mind. I can dissolve it there as well.

So can you and you will need to learn how to do this if you really want to be free in life and stay connected to your heart."

Kimmy Walking Away from Conflict

Sunday, November 20, 2011

Conflict is inevitable, but combat is optional. - Max Lucado

”It is not just our own lives that are recognized as precious,

but the lives of every other person, every other person, every other being,

every other reality. We can no longer be deluded by the notion

that the destruction of others lives is necessary for our own survival” - Unknown

For those of you that are use to seeing Kimmy as a fighter, I am.

I fight for peace, light, and content of soul.  However, fighting for peace, when there is none, is throwing away energy.  It is okay to walk away from people and situations that only drag you down.

This week with 90 minutes worth of blood, violence and weapons is sure to be a great week just watching the preview!

Last week we left off with a lot of stories that are finally starting to fall into place. Juice has officially become a rat. Gemma knows for sure now that Clay cannot be saved. Tara’s hand is pretty much gone after the mexicans attempted to abduct her. Jax seems even more conflicted now that Tara is like this, and because he saw what the freedom of not having his cut on can bring. Lets see what happens this week HERE!

The Empty Boat

Friday, November 11, 2011


A wise man has said:
"He who is content with himself
Has done a worthless work.
Achievement is the beginning of failure.
Fame is beginning of disgrace."

Who can free himself from achievement
And from fame, descend and be lost
Amid the masses of men?
He will flow like Tao, unseen,
He will go about like Life itself
With no name and no home.
Simple is he, without distinction.
To all appearances he is a fool.
His steps leave no trace. He has no power.
He achieves nothing, has no reputation.
Since he judges no one
No one judges him.
Such is the perfect man:
His boat is empty.

Learn to write your hurts in the sand

Monday, October 31, 2011

A great parable that was sent me, and I wanted to share.

A story tells that two friends were walking through the desert. During some point of the journey they had an argument, and one friend slapped the other one in the face.

The one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying anything, wrote in the sand:

TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SLAPPED ME IN THE FACE.

They kept on walking until they found an oasis, where they decided to take a bath. The one who had been slapped got stuck in the mire and started drowning, but the friend saved him. After he recovered from the near drowning, he wrote on a stone:

TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SAVED MY LIFE.

The friend who had slapped and saved his best friend asked him, “After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand and now, you write on a stone, why?” The other friend replied “When someone hurts us we should write it down in sand where winds of forgiveness can erase it away. But, when someone does something good for us, we must engrave it in stone where no wind can ever erase it.”

LEARN TO WRITE YOUR HURTS IN THE SAND AND TO CARVE YOUR BENEFITS IN STONE.

Many times what we see is only the smoke effects of our actions, and cannot see the truth behind it until we realize that the smoke is an effect, not the cause. We cannot move forward until we are aware, and the smoke clears.

Some people live in the smoke, and refuse to step out of it. Blaming the smoke, and not the fire.

Last week we had more guns, more violence and an ending that left some stunned and others sitting on chat boards re-watching the episode because of something we heard. This week should be no different. This show always seems to take itself somewhere that we never thought they could go, then the creator not only takes it there, but makes it look so easy! Just viewing the preview for this week brought up a lot of questions as to what is going to happen with Tara and Jax. Also we still have to find out what is going to happen with Bobby calling for a vote to challenge Clay being president. Another piece we are still waiting to find out about is what really happened to Juice? Did the branch really break? Lets see what happens!

Kimmy Building and Tearing down The Wall

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

pink floyd the wall Pictures, Images and Photos



I think sometimes, we revert to our little girl selves when pushed into a corner.

I felt 14 years old for the past 24 hours, helpless, and depressed.  Of course, I didn't fade away. I didn't drown my sorrows.  I had work, and chores to keep me busy.

I didn't want to relive my pain by blogging it.  I didn't want to slice open my wrists with self harm.  I just sat.. in a sadness.

And then.. I remembered a coping skill of MUSIC.

When I was a young teen in the mid to late 80s. I decided that it was okay to be down. And music was my safe haven.

Pink Floyd The Wall, ALBUM was my escape.

And look what I found on YouTube...Part one



Kinda makes me want to pull out the Vinyl.

Pink Floyd's The Wall is on my level, allows me to feel.. then allows me to tear it down.

It sounds funny for a thirty-nine year old to babble on about depression, and tearing down the wall.. I think it's about coping skills that work.

Things Can Only Get Better

Friday, October 7, 2011

We're not scared to lose it all
Security throw through the wall
Future dreams we have to realize
A thousand skeptic hands
Won't keep us from the things we plan
Unless we're clinging to the things we prize

And do you feel scared - I do
But I won't stop and falter
And if we threw it all away
Things can only get better

Treating today as though it was
The last, the final show
Get to sixty and feel no regret
It may take a little time
A lonely path, an uphill climb
Success or failure will not alter it

And do you feel...

And do you feel...

It is an Elevator kind of Day

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

While searching for a blog topic, I saw a topic about "See Saw" and it reminded me about a Twitter quote I read last night.

"Elevator kind of Day. "

That was an instant nod for me. Every day from 4:45am to 5:00pm (or a little later) is an elevator day.

I wake up normally with an alarm/snooze going off for an hour. My hubby is a night person.

AND he just earned the 7-3:30 shift. Except now, the hour with the alarm is 4:45am - 5:45am. By the time hubby leaves for work at 6am, let's say my elevator is on the 19th floor, and I am about to jump!!

Get my coffee, and then head up to my office to set MY morning. 

Where I go from there is day to day, hour to hour.  I am a corporate/IT/Staffing/Contract recruiter. Quick fills, long term positions, multiple positions, and drama. It's okay. I love it, but it's up and down all darn day!!

Evening comes and the elevator is stopped on the one floor. HOME! Dinner made, chores done, a family room project unfinished due to issues with the vendor, loud tv and trying to find ways to wind down cramped in one room. 

Sometimes life doesn't have to have a topic.  An elevator "day" is just how you view things. Find ways to enjoy each stop!

In the 90s, I wished so hard that I could stay home, and raise my daughter while she was growing up,  or even have a work schedule that would allow for switching schedules to make 10:00 am halloween parades, get teacher institute days, summers off,  or the possibility to be a chaperone on a field trip!  But damn me for finding a career in the largest Telecommunications company in the world. I mean seriously, I was a TEEN MOM.  How did I find a job EARLY 20s in what was the beginning of the world of CallerID/LongDistanceWars/and the smell of ADSL line (data and IP combined!?!?) That job helped me buy my house in 1998. Also paid for school.

It wasn't all roses. Long hours, attached to a pager.. (haha).  The worst was that I had plenty of fair weather friends that loved to throw it in my face that since I wasn't able to be a lunch mom, I was a failure, and was a horrible person that I put my work before my daughter. It made me very vindictive, and even bitchier. What can I say?  I was tired already!!! Lashing out was my defense.  What else did I have at the time??

However today, as I was standing at the sink doing dishes, I feel very differently.  Why???

I work from home, helping good people, now find good careers.  I have been recruiting since 2004, and working from home for over a year.  I cook, I clean, I prepare dinner every night. We hang out as a family more now than ever. We are like the three musketeers. TV, midnight movies, helping and supporting each other. If one of us has a car that breaks down, we carpool, and make it work. Alyssa has Ryan to get away from us...but even then, they are taking me to Pink Floyd tribute show next month!!

Working for the past 25 years wasn't fun.  I thought I would regret missing being a lunch mom because someone told me I wasn't as good as her because I had a career.  Sadly, I should have known to trust my gut. My parents had really good work ethic, and they passed it on to me-just as Rick and I passed it on to Alyssa.

I use to think independence made me who I was.  But now, being here for my family and close friends, is who I am. I am still Kimberly Salvinski Garcia, but I am also Kimmy, wifey, momma, auntie, Mrs Garcia, and Ms Garcia, IT Recruiter, KimmySharingLight, and abutterflyloves.

Find out who you are - by being who you are.  Never let anyone tell you differently. Should I plug Alyssa's article here? Nah.. I will post it tomorrow!

Me and You Karma

Saturday, September 3, 2011

Karma, you can be very telling when you want to be.

You have a way to show me when I get a little high on that high horse, that one good bump will throw me off and leave me in the muck.

I am too busy to care about other people's lives, and have been keeping my focus on my own house of cards.

Yes, of course, I wonder at times, but you pull me right back in Lady Karma, and remind me my place is with people that are my life. Period. 

And when life throws me a curve ball, like the remodel of the family room, you take my panic and anxiety and give me music to dance to.

Karma doesn't have to be a bitch.

Treat her with respect, honor, and realize that when you throw out shit, she will throw it back at you. 

If you stay out of what doesn't concern you, she rewards you with happiness and joy.

Stop trying to seek out the "happiness" from others.

BE happy. And realize it is only YOU that decides that path.

If you have people stroking your ego so you "feel" better, when it stops, karma is rolling her eyes at you while you are finding ways to blame everyone else for your problems.  How do I know? Been there!

Good Luck Fall Semester 2011 Alyssa and MCC Students

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

Good luck on another semester! A small snafu in a computer glitch forced Alyssa into only three nights a week instead of four.  I am all for pushing self to the best of your ability, however with working full time, new responsibilities, and papers galore perhaps it's a blessing in disguise.

For the simplest reason it's almost Sons of Anarchy time. She already has class on Tuesday, and a review she has to post after the show. It makes for a really long Tuesday, if I recall the past two years!! lol.

I think the lesson is patience, with progress.  Sure, full time credit hours helps you reach your goal, but you will reach the goal anyway.  It might take another semester, but it's not like you are lying dormant.


See you late evening!

For the Good Times

Sunday, August 14, 2011

My parents have been married 40 years today. I am more emotional than I thought I would be. They married later in life. Why? Because they were independent souls that had their own life to lead before they settled down.

Both my parents trained in the medical field, my mom being an surgical nurse, and adventures that only the luckiest ones would get to experience. My father grew up in a large college town in Wisconsin, served his country in the Army as a Medical Assistant across the globe. However, upon returning, he worked 30 years in the Electronics/Components division at Motorola, where they also sent him out of the country.

They are MY parents, and I was, and still at times, the most difficult to deal with. They never gave up on me. But this post is about them.

I never understood why they had a "break up" song as their wedding song until today.

For the Good Times - Written by Kris Krisofferson - Sung by Ray Price

Don't look so sad, I know it's over,
But life goes on and this ol' world will keep on turning.
Let's just be glad we had some time to spend together,
There's no need to watch the bridges that we're burning.

Lay your head upon my pillow,
Hold your warm and tender body close to mine,
Hear the whisper of the raindrops blowing soft across the window,
And make believe you love me one more time,
For the good times . . .

I'll get along, you'll find another,
And I'll be here if you should find you ever need me,
Don't say a word about tomorrow, or forever,
They'll be time enough for sadness when you leave me . . .

Lay your head upon my pillow,
Hold your warm and tender body close to mine,
Hear the whisper of the raindrops blowing soft across the window,
And make believe you love me one more time,
For the good times . . .

For the good times . . .


They stayed together, and didn't have to. Both parties could have survived alone. They had already proven they could be "independent", no reason to make a statement that "I don't need you:. that was a given.

Happy 40th Anniversary. I know I am lucky to have you both.

The Chances, the Changes

Saturday, August 6, 2011

The greatest adventure
is what lies ahead.
Today and tomorrow are yet to be said.
The chances, the changes
are all yours to make.
The mold of your life
is in your hands to break.

— J.R.R. Tolkien
(The Hobbit: Or There and Back Again)

Participation in lieu of give and take

Wednesday, July 27, 2011


I follow a few actors on their Facebook, Twitter.

I am pretty selective in whom I want updates for because my reason for following them isn't just "addiction" to the characters they have played.

Even thought I do not "know" the real person, I get a strange sense of who they are based on their other activities they share. 

Informing the public; sharing poems, writings, or even announcing they will be at a local coffee shop in Los Angeles, or New York.

Makes me wish I didn't live in Chicago, and I could go see true talent while sipping on a Latte.

I follow the blog of one very talented performer, and he talks about fans in detail. In today's age, fans can click one or two buttons, and they are "friends" or "followers". He talked about the days of actual paper fan mail, and how he loves to still get it from time to time. I haven't had the courage yet to write one, because I wouldn't even know what to say.  I lose what is left of my intelligence if I have to actually speak. 

However June 17th, I received birthday wishes from my fav actor, and I was touched. It made me smile. Isn't that what life is, smiles! Feeling good! Work to enjoy every thing you do.

Today, he sent me a message and video of an epic upcoming film that was still in need of funds. Why not I thought? I donated basically the price of a few cups of coffee had I gone to see him at a coffee shop. It wasn't much, in fact, I decided to donate before I found out he was in it.

The fact that he took a moment out of his day, to wish me Happy Birthday, was a sign that life is what it is. People are just people. My neighbor helped me with his big snowblower in our blizzard, and I helped him with his trees that seriously needed root watering this year.

I choose to look at is as participation in life, rather than a give/take agreement. We participate, out of kindness, and that is returned because you are compelled to return the gesture.

I have the post for the donation request on my Facebook and Twitter page.

If you wanted to take a look at the upcoming movie, and donate as little as $1.00, please take a look at the link below.
