You’re An Effing Super Star


— Purposelessness is
lifelessness.—Iraelmore Avivor

~What Is Your Passion?

If it’s painting,
you must paint.  You must splash
and splatter luminous colors against the canvas from every direction without
fear.
If it’s gardening, you must garden.  You must dig your hands in the soil to experience
the worms and dirt and rocks between your fingers like a lover’s body.
If it’s baking,
you must bake.  You must attempt recipes
that thrill you,  delight you,  make you bite into your childhood with exhilaration.
…And if it’s writing,  you must write.  O’ god,
you must write.  You must write with
your blood and organs and soul without reserve.
You must transform and become who you were always meant to be.  You must leave your readers with the ebony ink
stuck between their teeth.

~What Is Your Purpose?

You have one.
Yes,  You.  Do.
The question is,
have you tapped into it yet?  Have
you heard those voices within your head saying,
“Do it!  Just bloody do it!”
If not,  will
you allow me assist you?
Whatever your gift /passion is;  whether tis gardening,  painting,
soccer, baking, encouragement, entertaining,  empathy, singing, writing, planning, giving,
or loving loving loving…
This is how you were destined to serve in the
universe.  This is how God wants to
utilize you.
Believe it.
He will employ your experiences to make this happen.
My Jesus Loving friend,
Kjersti, otherwise known as Wild Child Mama was formerly in the sex
industry.  But today—she enters those
same strip clubs to build relationships with the girls so they can see
there’s another path…a new horizon…a different future.    (if they want it)
Getting Ready To Go Into The Strip Clubs.  LOVE! xx
Use your past experiences to seek your purpose.

~God Will Use Your Pain

When my sister, Kay, was murdered,  I walked around crying,  “Why?
Why would I be left alone without my soul mate, my best friend?  What the hell is going on?  Why is this happening?  Son-of-a-bitch.  Bastard.  What good can possibly come out of this?
It’s taken 3 years,
but sometimes,  I notice a veil lifting,  a shadow exiting,  a darkness fading.
And I believe God is using this pain, this horrendous experience
for my purpose.  Yes.  That’s exactly what I believe.
One of my favorite kick ass Bloggers,  Kimberly of
All Work and No Play Makes Mommy Go Something Something
Writes about her Postpartum depression in a raw, uninhibited
way.  By doing this, by telling her
truth without boundaries,  she invites others into her intimate world.  Her readers
realize  “they are not alone.”
You.      Are.      Never.      Alone.
Kimberly,  Hubs,  Chunky….LOVE flowing to Canada,  Dear!  xx

~~You Can Start Today

I have good news.
You don’t need to start using your gifts
tomorrow.
You can utilize your beautiful self in ways to fit
your purpose today.
Ask yourself what makes you happy, valued,
worthy,  respected,  prayerful, beautiful, constructive,
positive, joyful, warm, amazing….
And do
it.
Nothing is insignificant, small, or invaluable.
Just do it….
……Because You’re a Fucking Super Star.
xxXx
–Dear,  Reader,  have you found your purpose / passion?
A Note: My cool friends,  Mike & Phoenix have a giveaway on their blog for Amazon.com…go.  go.  go  HERE! Now.
—-A big kiss for Kjersti  & Kimberly for allowing me to use their photos on my blog today.  xx

    YES!!! I have to admit that I have A LOT of help from Jesus! I was very afraid to go back into those dark clubs! But God helps me to see it through His eyes. How can I say no when I see how beautiful we all are and how painfully alone we feel in our darkness? Kim, you are a LIGHT! Shining for those who cannot do it alone. God bless you!!! Xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

    It’s like there’s light coming out of the darkness. This is so uplifting and encouraging. I love how the former sex workers have not only turned their own lives around but are now helping others do the same thing. And yes, people suffering PND usually do suffer in silence so one woman choosing to share her story can be of untold benefit to many, many more. Great post, Kay xx

    Thanks for the encouragement (I often need a kick-in-the-pants!). I think it’s especially hard when one is passionate about so many things, don’t you?! I mean, I can’t NOT write, but I’ve gotta work to put food on the table. I can’t NOT sing, or read, or play with my darling doggie, but nobody pays me to do those things either. Sigh. Why must we have money to live??
    Has it really been three years already? I imagine there are days when you feel it was just yesterday. Hugs to you, Kim!

God bless her always. Through prayer to our Higher Power and meditation to quiet our minds anything is possible. We are only limited by our imagination ya know, Kim? You’ve knocked another one out of the park with this post our dear love! Thank you sooooo much for the shout out as we are always so grateful always to you 🙂

        I’m right with you and our friend Mike on stories of transformation, forgiveness and redemption. They strengthen us. God helps us shapeshift, including via tragic events. My novel Revelle follows these themes.

        About passion and purpose: I’ve always been driven by these. I do notice they, too, can shapeshift over time in a person’s life . For example, a couple of decades ago I was an alcohol/drug counselor. That work meant the world to me — so soulful and meaningful. But that period of my life ended after less than two years.

        Now, I work in rural transit — also very meaningful, though not so bruising and hard as the a/d work. My takeaway is that God can have more than one passion, and more than one purpose, in mind for us over the course of our lives.

        Wonderful post, Kim.

    I was so glad to read you are feeling the veil lifting…seeing that the horrible pain of losing Kay has given you this amazing voice to help so many others! YOU are the ROCK STAR! my friend! We all have our dark parts…the places you’ve tried so hard to deny, or walk away from and not look back, only to discover we were meant to use those dark days to help others. It’s the only way I can make sense of it.
    love you!

    I agree with you 100 percent. When I met the man that was to become my husband, I wished that he would find his passion, what he is meant to do because I know that living your passion is the best thing ever. It took some time, but he is living his passion now. I truly believe that we were all created to be creative, it’s in every single one of us and it manifests differently.

When you find your passion, your find yourself, your home, your place in the world. In my life there have been a very few people who truly inspired me.

    Kim, you are such a special person…how wonderful that you do support your very talented blogger friends – I did take the time to go visit their blogs and read their stories – all I can say is that I am quite impressed! It is easy to get caught up in baking and cooking and caring for kids and the family and forget about other things that are quite dear to our hearts, that we are also passionate about – on the weekend I re-read one of my favorite books, every time I pick it up, I feel so moved and I always ask myself why I do not pick up that book more often, especially since I love theater and books so much. I am also very passionate about learning different languages and I am working on my language skills all the itme! It fills my heart with joy to be able to converse in different languages (ieven if I am not perfect at it). What a wonderful, inspiring and uplifting post, dear Kim!
    Lots of love form afar,

    Such a great up lifting post. So motivational. And you are so right. We need to pursue what makes us happy….what make us feel worthwhile. I love to sing and sing and sing. I only wish I could sing well. But I sound good to me. Do you know that I have always LOVED the piano and wanted to learn to play but never have. Well, at 56 I am learning and I LOVE IT! I don’t know where the time goes when I play. An hour is a minute!!!! Always looking forward to your next post Kim. Have a great week!

    Yes! We walk through our pain and sometimes the veil lifts, the breeze blows through and we don’t have to be afraid. Maybe it isn’t that we are still afraid but we can learn to walk through our pain and fear because we know we will be held up. I don’t know which it is only that we are sometimes able to take a step and suddenly we are walking.

    This is so good. You always remind us Kim, we don’t have to live with dark shadows scaring us into corners.

    Kim–you make painting sound like such a blast. I want to rush out and get a blank canvas and start spattering! Your joyous energy oozes out of every pore of this blogpost. What an inspiration you and Kjersti and Kimberly are. Strong, focused women who truly make the world a better place. Reminds me of a Carl Sagan quote I just read:

    Who are we, if not measured by our impact on others? That’s who we are! We’re not who we say we are, we’re not who we want to be — we are the sum of the influence and impact that we have, in our lives, on others. CARL SAGAN

    Hi Kim,

    Speaking of painting, I moved my painting to a different location in my home. I like to think my art’s in the right place….

    My garden a sanctuary for the soil and my soul. The wind chimes, nature’s orchestra.

    I don’t do religion. I do spirituality of a shared oneness of all forms of awareness. My purpose is to discreetly work in the background and feel at peace with my acts of altruism. My purpose, to promote an all different, all equal world that rejoices in the diversity.

    I am virtual recluse, yet I’m never alone and you know, on Christmas Day, I stay online to be there for others who might be struggling or just want someone to chat to. Help each other, we help ourselves.

    Anybody who cares for humanity and want to see a change for the better, is a fucking super star! And thus, super star friend, let’s all shine on.

    In peace and hugs,

    Gary 🙂

    About a decade ago, I was stuck. I did not understand which direction to go in my career because I was used to one thing. Then my Mother gave me some solid gold-plated advice, she told me to place my inner critic three feet in front of me and give it a kick in the ass and send it on its way. Then I opened my mind to explore possibilities. I took stock of all that I could do and the list seemed endless.

    Today, I can safely say I am living my passion – doing what I like, sometimes getting paid for it – but certainly making a difference in lives, for that is what my heart wants to do.

    Kim, you’re such a beautiful soul. This post will sit in my heart forever.

    Sometimes all we have to do to succeed is get out of our own way – we can be our own dam blocking the flow of ideas and expression.

    If you believe in God, or Thor, or Isis, or whatever form/gender or nebulous beauty the Divine might represent to you, honor that in your life. Even if you don’t believe, there is much to honor, including your own creativity, and the love we all enjoy here on Earth with our friends and loved ones.

    you must write. You must write with
    your blood and organs and soul without reserve.
    You must transform and become who you were always meant to be. You must leave your readers with the ebony ink
    stuck between their teeth.

    YES
    YES
    YES
    YES
    Another blogger I follow just posted a similar sentiment. I left a rather meaty comment at her blog.

    There is a full moon tonight. I am thinking the she-wolves are rising up and howling for us to embrace who our true selves and hang on to the impossible dreams that refuse to die.

    Here’s the link to her post… http://thegiftofwriting.com/2013/11/whats-driving-dream/

    I think I’ll go blog my own now.

    Thanks for being YOU….and lest any readers are mistaken to suppose that manufactured tragedy to birth an activist, HELL NO—– how we respond to evil is to overcome it with good, which is what you are doing. Evil may shape us and guide us for better or worse, yet it is not the almighty plan of a benevolent Creator to unleash evil in order to create good. We respond to darkness with light for God is Light, and is the Light within us.

    Ok. sermon over.

    My purpose is somehow connected to a desire to see the world with clear eyes, stripping away all the sentimentality, false packaging, media messages, passive/aggressiveness, etc. that dominates the way people think and act.

    I like your passion here, m’dear.

    This is fantastic! I’m so inspired watching you use your pain to reach other people and to bring compassion and support into this world, and I’m so glad to know about your friends who are using their struggles to do the same thing. (I’ve been one of Kim’s fans for ages. She’s amazing!) Thanks for the good work you do…ALL of you!!

    Just do it! Best advice! We know what we want to do. We know what makes us happy. But so often we put it off for other things. And when we finally do it, what an amazing feeling! xoxo

    A magnificent, strong post, Kim. I feel so without purpose, meaning, worth. I know, it doesn’t always show! Yet, these words, this vibe, is meaningful, worthwhile.

    I view the photo slideshow on the right and feel sorry every time. I just love how you honour your sister.

    What a lovely and inspiring post. I have a lot of passions, but I’m not sure of my purpose. Your post really gets me thinking though. I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching lately, so reading this meant a lot to me. All I know is that I want to please god, I want the people in my life to feel better for having known me, and not to be a person who spreads grief to others. That’s all I could really tell you at this point in my life. I’m at a stage where I just try taking things one day at a time.
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend

    People make heroes out of folks who dazzle audiences, who climb tall mountains, sail around the world or invent things that make a lot of money.

    My heroes are people like you, Kim. Talk about sharing openly and finding yourself peeking into the other side of one of life’s biggest scars! God is good and you’ve never let go. I love you for this – and all the help this process will give to women who can’t YET believe in their own ability to come through.

    I enjoyed working with John’s class for two weeks. You para’s were super and I learned a lot from you. Thank you, Kim, for helping me in controlling the class and getting me up to speed as quickly as you did. I appreciated your enjoying my corny jokes and dancing with me when I tried to get the kids to participate. I can see by your blogs the passion you have in living. I’m also impressed with your web development. You’ve put a lot of thought into your site. Cool! Thank you all for the class card. That was extremely thoughtful. Hard to believe you can get to caring about a bunch of students after only two weeks. But they are great kids and you are doing wonderfully well with their development.

    Mr. B

    I used to wonder, what will people think of a particular poem? Will they relate at all, or is it too much or too personal or too out there? But I would go ahead and hit POST, and people would always come along and say how much they identified with it, until now I never think about it all, I just assume that if a subject means something to me that it will be meaningful to others as well. Not everyone. But, enough someones to make it very much worth putting it out there.
