Black and Blue

Did you ever have a broken heart that took forever to heal…a  heart that  hurt so much it was  black and blue…you’re sure you’ll never get over that person who was such a big love in your life… crying day and night for days, weeks, months and not believing love could hurt so much…wailing and waiting for closure and for the day when you can say your heart is not your enemy?

Then one day you wake up and realize you’re over them.

 

It pays to be fearless. Love to you all…Karm

Weekend Digs

It’s been years since I went to a concert.   Ridiculously high ticket prices is one reason why I lost interest.  Also, I’m not impressed with a lot of the popular music right now.

I’m happy to say I broke my fast this weekend and went to a Jason Mraz concert.  Christina Perri also performed.

I love his music and I had so much fun!  When I woke up the next morning I hurt all over from dancing for hours.

 

 

Send Me an Angel

When that special angel shows up with open arms and a heart that won’t wither hold on and learn to fly. If you let go you will realize someday that angels are few and far between. When one enters your life it is forever if you so desire. To have one is a miracle of life. To lose one is a crime against the heart.

I’ve been searching for you
for so long
My life’s been sacrificed
I’ve been longing for truth
And now I have found
all that in you

Like an angel you came to me
And now I see
The stranger in me is finally free
To feel true love

From heaven I knew you were born
on the wings of love
you were brought to me
I’ve been longing for truth
journeyed so far
to be with you

Like an angel you came to me
And now I see
The stranger in me is finally free
To feel true love.

My Big Day

This is a big day for me ladies and gents!

Anwar at Her Favorite Juice is the first fellow blogger to invite me to be a guest blogger.  I was really flattered to be invited and wanted to write something his readers could relate to. There was nothing daunting about it.  It was a lot of fun.  I’m still a rookie at dating but I know men and that’s one thing I can think about and write about for hours. I hope you stop by to read it.  Enjoy!

Guest Blog – Spontaneous Com-Nection

WoooooHoooooo!!!

Applause and cheers to you all for making me feel welcome here. Thanks for all the inspiration, insight and humor you share.

We Need to Talk

Are you there God? It’s me, Karm. We need to talk.

I entered the world of dating two years ago and it’s been a crazy ride.  After being married for 17 years I was stunned by how complicated dating is.  No matter what I do I can’t seem to simplify it.  I suppose there are simple ingredients needed to find the right mix but maybe not. HELP!! I think I need a dating coach.

It’s not that I don’t meet eligible men because I lost count of how many I’ve met. I just don’t meet men that have what it takes to stand the test of time.  I was more than glad to let some of them go, but seriously depressed about walking away from one or two of them.

Notice I”m not complaining about a lack of sex. Finding a naked man is never a problem. If all I want is a naked man beside me, that’s  easy. There are a lot more men who want to get me naked than treat me to a lunch.  If they figured out that they have to feed me too it would be like hitting the lottery.

That’s about as simple as it gets for me.  What do I know?  My friend calls me a rookie and she’s right.  I’m still learning everything the hard way…trial and error.  At this point the errors are starting to pile up and I’m aggravated.

Do you think you could send me a man who can afford to treat me to dinner and is also a Viagra junkie?  I really liked the hot Italian lover from the Bronx that I dated last year (hint, hint).  That would make me so happy.

Love and Peace and Forever Yours,

Karm

Absolute Beginners lyrics
I’ve nothing much to offer
There’s nothing much to take
I’m an absolute beginner
And I’m absolutely sane

As long as we’re together
The rest can go to hell
I absolutely love you
But we’re absolute beginners
With eyes completely open
But nervous all the same

Chorus:
If our love song
Could fly over mountains
Could laugh at the ocean
Just like the films
There’s no reason
To feel all the hard times
To lay down the hard lines
It’s absolutely true

Nothing much could happen
Nothing we can’t shake
Oh, we’re absolute beginners
With nothing much at stake

As long as you’re still smiling
There’s nothing more I need
I absolutely love you
But we’re absolute beginners
But if my love is your love
We’re certain to succeed

Chorus:
If our love song
Could fly over mountains
Could sail over heartaches
Just like the films
There’s no reason
To feel all the hard times
To lay down the hard lines
It’s absolutely true

Compassion

“Compassion is that which makes the heart of the good move at the pain of others. It crushes and destroys the pain of others; thus, it is called compassion. It is called compassion because it shelters and embraces the distressed.” – The Buddha

Compassion is defined as “deep awareness of the suffering of another coupled with the wish to relieve it.”

There are so many people in the world with broken hearts, broken dreams and broken wings.

Perhaps we know someone who has lost a child, has been the victim of a violent crime, has lost their home and possessions in a fire or natural disaster  or has a loved one fighting cancer.

We empathize with their suffering.  We understand their suffering.  We imagine the pain they’re going through.

I doubt there’s anyone who hasn’t felt sadness, loneliness and despair for themselves and others. There’s a good chance we will all suffer through trauma, loss or hopelessness in our lifetime.

Compassion takes it a step further where we want to relieve their suffering.  We open our hearts to the person and want to do something to ease their pain.  Compassion is the willingness to help others in need.  Compassion is action.

It’s easy for me to be compassionate toward people who treat me well.  It’s a lot more difficult to be compassionate with someone who has hurt me.  It’s truly a sign of growth when I reach that turning point and can be willing to help them.

So many have helped me find hope at times.  I can honestly say that not everyone who has helped me has been my friend, or has even known or liked me.

There are good people in the world who can set aside their differences and resentments to help someone in need.  I admire them and learn from them.

Compassion can expand a person’s experience in the world in a positive way…rescuing an animal, feeding the hungry, listening to the despair of another human being, a smile for the lonely,  assisting the elderly.  The possibilities are endless.

Awakened

The only excuse I have for taking a few days off is a lack of original thoughts.   I hate it when that happens but here I am again.  I had a few lunatic moments this weekend that I want to share.  Have I told you how much I appreciate the fact that you read my blogs, comment and hit that LIKE button?  Thank you all so much.  You awaken my spirit and inspire me. It pays to be fearless.  Love to you all…Karm

Morning Love

In the morning light,

presence in the moment

begins with a whisper.

After the sunrise,

the first touch

makes the butterfly dance.

Where is Matt?

Where the hell is Matt?

I can never watch this video without getting teary.  Matt travels the world bringing people together to dance.  Enjoy the video.

Lyrics translated in English :

The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day
runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures.

It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth
in numberless blades of grass
and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers.

It is the same life that is rocked in the ocean-cradle of birth
and of death, in ebb and in flow.

I feel my limbs are made glorious by the touch of this world of life.
And my pride is from the life-throb of ages dancing in my blood this moment.

 

It pays to be fearless.  Love to you all…Karm

Self-Portrait #1

Today is all about me.  I love me days…me time…me, me, me.

I wish David Bowie was here to share it with me.

It pays to be fearless. Love to you all…Karm
