KStew & Vogue Inspire the Seeking of Global Soul

27 Jan

We all have wings. Though some of us don’t know why

~Never Tear Us Apart, INXS

We Are Here.

Well, hellllo there, my Majestic Misfits and Rebellious Royals! I’ll address why you haven’t heard from me in over two weeks (and, more importantly how profoundly effective the hiatus has been) in a few moments, but I just wanted to take a deep breath and enjoy being in your company. I hold deep and sincere gratitude to you for your patience and understanding. And you must know that I have missed you all. In a very experiential, existential way. And I’ve missed your clever, hysterical editorials on all things K/R/Twi/Bliss/Other related. So, this is me, before commencing this week’s essay, bowing down to you in humble appreciation. And I look a little like this:

One thing that has become dazzlingly apparent to me recently is The Bond. There is a bond now. We all have bonded over our admiration for Kristen and Robert. Regardless if this is an almost 3-year journey (raises hand) for you, or if this is your first glance at a blog you discovered after typing in the words “Kristen” and  “Stewart”  in a Google search, there are a great many of us who share in a feeling of unity in this vast community, this fandom. We have invested at least a sliver of personal interest into a twenty-year old woman who is navigating the peaks and valleys of living, loving, doing and being. How has this bond manifested for me? Well, first, I had the opportunity to spend some face-to-face time with one of my Cyber Sisters, Missy/Brothaa last week. Nothing cements camaraderie like ingesting copious amounts of pasta and alcohol before running around town to random bookstores and liquor stores seeking VOGUE Magazines. While the gentleman behind the liquor store counter double and triple checked with me as to whether I “really wanted to purchase all four copies of the same magazine”, Missy didn’t bat an eyelash. Instead, she squealed and did the soccer-announcer -screaming-GOOOAAAALLLL-Dance with me when we spotted it.

CLEARLY a productive night

How else did I glimpse the awesomeness that is the Fandom Community? The emergence of more clear and powerfully positive voices speaking up in support of Kristen, Rob and the greater picture. A friend of mine, M, aka one part of the blogging team @DrownInIt wrote an eloquent essay on the joys of participating in this fandom. Check it HERE: How KStew Changed Fangirling. One of the many points M highlighted in her essay is the sheer exhilaration and honor she feels in meeting fellow intelligent, and creative voices among this fandom. I personally can attest to the genius and almost crushing generosity of Kristen Supporters, if Musings’ Readers are any indication. I’ve long-held the opinion that Musings Readers are the wittiest, bravest and most brilliant of all the fandom (bias schmias), but as I stumbled around uncertainly these past couple weeks, I became convinced that MOO’s Readers are DIVINE. Here is where I turn my adoring gaze upon Matt B and @Dano328/OpyTaylor for their impeccably timed, kind words of encouragement. You both unknowingly contributed to the saving of Musings.

TRUTH TIME. I experienced a moment in which I contemplated the discontinuation of Musings. Without going into great detail, I have had some pretty stressful 3D experiences including another bout with a painful sinus/flu-like sickness, a major setback in the financing of The Magical Little Practice, and some family issues to attend to. Plus, with my inability for succinct storytelling, I had written essays averaging 3000 words every week for seven months prompting self-care (coming from the consta-sick girl) and perspective-expansion, and I wondered if maybe I’d over-stayed my welcome. Quite serendipitously, The Universe sent me several encounters with synchronicity, impeding my too-hasty, and not-quiet disappearance. Synchronicity in the form of emails from rebel poets (@DANO328 and MATT), MidWestie Visitors (winks at Brothaa), inspiring Blog posts (@DrownInIt), Team Other Captains who used SHOUTY CAPS (ahem, CC) and soothing words and pictures (My girls Bouffant & Buff). And just in case I truly didn’t get the memo, Synchronicity sent an Angel….

VogueStew bestows grace

These encounters with friends, Readers, fellow fans (The Bond), and our Reigning Other Queen Kristen reminded me of the agreement I’d made with myself, and with Others. In essence, I was re-introduced to my Blissful Path, prompted to expand my perspective and revisit my Sacred Contract. This Contract, as defined by the awe-inspiring author and medical intuitive Carolyn Myss, is essentially the understanding and implementation of our greater functioning. Our Path. Our higher purpose. Our Soul’s Work. Basically, the reason ‘Why We Are Here’.

We have established these agreements with many people in our lives–past and present–also with our higher power however it is named for you, and with ourselves. They are compiled of anything and everything and influence anything and everything: Romantic relationships, friendships, family relations, career choices, money management, artistic expression, fandom communities, and society. SISTERS. BROTHERS. MOTHERS. FATHERS. LOVERS. HEALERS. TEACHERS. PARENTS. STUDENTS. WARRIORS. LEADERS. OTHER.  Jungian scholars may refer to these as “Samples” and patterns as informed by Archetypes. My Divine Agreements are with my soul mates and beloveds, and with my hope to provide healing and empowerment to people through my fledgling psychotherapy practice…and through Musings. All who enter into a Sacred Contract acknowledge that we are accountable to not only ourselves, but to others, and to our environment, to ideas much larger than just us as individuals. We agree that we have communion with the Global Soul.

The Fairest Philanthropy

Raise your hopeful voice, you had the choice. You’ve made it now

~Falling Slowly, Swell Season

Contrary to popular assumption, the desire to connect to the greater collective (also creating spiritual and emotional transformation) is not always motivated by tragedy or loss. It can be inspired by a particularly beautiful line of poetry, or introduction to a soul mate, a sunset, a movie, an inspiring business discussion. Or by an issue of Vogue. It was quite the celebration once we learned that Kristen Jaymes Stewart was going to be the February Cover Girl for Vogue, as our Rebel Queen broke through the barriers of Unconventional Beauty to grace the front of such a culturally iconic publication. And when the first photos from the shoot began rolling out, I, along with millions of others gasped at the majesty.

I may have cried a little over the Outtakes and the Behind-the-Scenes Video. . .

But it was the accompanying article that truly plundered me, leaving me speechless. Interviewer Eve MacSweeney managed to capture our Majestic Misfit’s quiet but still-blazing intensity, intelligence, kindness and other-worldly aestheticism in print, accomplishing what so many journalists have attempted before but could not entirely deliver. Kristen’s now-famous Mexican Tortilla Soup had been alluded to in the past by colleagues and costars, but Ms.MacSweeney enjoyed a first-hand observation and consumption of Ms Stewart’s culinary prowess as the actress prepared (in her “friend’s” kitchen) and served the famous Soup along with pulled-pork sandwiches. We all knew that KJ Stewart (of course I squeal just a tiny bit that Kristen and I have our initials in common) is a voracious reader, but the Vogue journalist received an updated book list directly from the source. Kristen’s nightstand is piled high with literary gems including Columbine by Dave Cullens, a study of extreme Mormonism and Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina. OIC. Light bedtime reading.

legs

This interview became my favorite interview in direct correlation with two very essential responses Kristen gave. First, when Ms. MacSweeney alluded to our favorite Featured Rebel and Poet Warrior, Robert P, Kristen addressed but closed down further discussion entirely by saying,

“It’s not my job.”

This was an impeccable answer.  The best answer Ms. Stewart could have EVER given. She clearly indicates that she will fiercely protect her private life, all while shooting down any outlandish charges that her relationship with Mr Pattinson is a PR stunt. Her relationship with him is not available for monetary capitalization nor voyeurs’ entertainment. She granted this interview to a world-renown magazine to discuss her work. BOO.YAH.

The second response that rendered me dizzy simply was Synchronicity nudging me to sit the fuck down and revisit my resolutions…Review my Sacred Contract. I believe I heard angels singing.  Kristen has perhaps glimpsed her own Sacred Contract, as she is realizing the great influence she has (She’s on par with She-Ra). Not only is she greatly admired (translation: adored, lusted after, coveted, worshipped, idolized) by esteemed colleagues and cohorts, but she has the unwavering devotion and attention of millions of readers, and movie-goers, thanks to her work in the films Twilight, Adventureland, The Runaways,and Welcome to the Rileys to name a few.  That’s such a daunting concept. And yet, Ms Kristen finds herself concerned only with the happiness and approval from fans of the Twilight books….She’s also considering what to do with the pile of cash she’s acquired as a result of her film work. She is a lovely, successful, and shy young woman shaping a plan to contribute to society, benevolently aiding a cause she feels “most connected to”. Kristen’s work for the film Welcome to the Rileys in which she played Mallory, a teenaged runaway  working as a stripper/prostitute, illuminated Kristen’s Contract. She wants to contribute to the Global Soul via the creation of safe places for people seeking recovery and rehabilitation…in the form of a Halfway House network.

*Cue Angels’ glorious chorus. Cue KJ’s weeping*

I was already an ardent admirer of Kristen Stewart. I already inherently, instinctively believed that she was a compassionate, intelligent, and gentle spirit. But when I read about Kristen’s desire to build a network of  halfway houses, my respect for her grew exponentially …into a kind of reverence. I have spent over ten years working with the population that Kristen wants to assist. My clients are children, women, teenagers and families who were victims of abuse, poverty, substance abuse and disenchantment, and every one of them sought a quiet moment of respite and a kind word of encouragement to continue forward, when all they really wanted to do was fall back. But since mental health and soul rehabilitation are the bottom-rung of priorities when considering the piecing together of state and national budgets, there are no resources to finance counseling or social services. I lost my job as a psychotherapist and manager over a year ago due to the severe budget restraints. And now this beautiful, compassionate artist wants to contribute to the reinstatement of safe havens and encouragement for people who are in dire need. Her Halfway House Network could enable the hiring of gifted counselors thirsty for work and eager to help to the millions of people just struggling to find their next meal. What other twenty-year old do you know does this? To say that I am stunned is an understatement. I am absolutely astonished.

A New Musings Mission

You’re never given a dream without also being given the power to make it true

~Richard Bach

So, let’s recap shall we? In my unplanned, unexpected two-week hiatus from Musings, I got pretty sick (again) and in the midst of addressing illness, family stuff and business planning, considered closing down this blog. Ah, but The Universe had other ideas for this restless Other Queen-in-training. The Bond simmered and surged, other strong voices joined the fray, and letters arrived from  gentlemen who provided exactly the right words to soothe at exactly the right time (bows to Matt and Dan). My beloved and insanely gifted husband N was promoted at work (we have a roof over our head for another month! We have cable again!). A Sister came to my city to have cocktails with The Beats ..and me…And Kristen Stewart made a connection with the Global Soul through a very beautiful and compelling photo shoot and interview with Vogue. Did I cover everything?

Here’s where I tell you about the revitalized, reinvigorated, re-inspired Musings Mission. *bouncing on my toes in excitement* Encouraged by Kristen’s incredible philanthropic visions, and with Carolyn Myss’s guidance on seeking my own Divine Agreement (or Sacred Contract), I’ve decided my mission is two-fold. First, I am going to continue to write Musings. That’s right. You’re stuck with me, kiddos, all my rambling and musing just needs to go somewhere…Writing MOO makes me happy, and it satisfies my desire to communicate, empower and embolden fellow Misfits to find their true Home, their Bliss. The continuation of Musings provides support and encourages our Reigning Other Queen Kristen to KEEP GOING, KEEP GOING, KEEP GOING as well. My hope is that we can all pursue our Bliss, and seek connection to the Global Soul through connection and compassion with Others. And besides, I get to post pretty pictures of Kristen and all the Royal Rebels who light the path and persevere. I like pretty pictures of Royal Rebels….

The second tenant of my New MOO Mission–Shall we call it THE MOO MISH?–entails: My offer of anything within my power and scope of abilities to our Reigning Queen Kristen’s disposal so she can implement her  own Sacred Contract. I created and managed small counseling teams while I was at BastardNation, a company that truly released and liberated me when budget cuts sliced my position out. Now I’m free to contribute to projects that inspire me–Like Kristen’s vision. Her vision is very close to my own: Guide, provide safety, health and empowerment of self.  I would love nothing more than to contribute my skills of clinical psychotherapy, supervision and program management to helping Kristen build a Halfway House Network to help Others start their healing journeys on their own paths towards health and …home. It’s kinda what I do already in my teensy tiny almost-there practice, and in my weekly ramblings with you beautiful Misfits…So why not contribute the goals of my Sacred Contract to someone else’s goals for the betterment of The Collective Good? *shrugs*

So, my Loveliest of Lovelies…here we are, already at the end of the first month of a new year. Its only the second Musings of 2011 and I do apologize for the unannounced delay in posting. But I am eternally and wholly indebted to you all for your unbelievably inspiring support and love for Musings, for your passionate defense and support of Our Reigning Queen Kristen and all the Featured Royal Rebels highlighted each week. I thank you for your enthusiasm  and courage in Embracing Your Other and following your Bliss….for remaining so positive in a roller-coaster of a passionate fandom, and for modeling true UNCONVENTIONAL BEAUTY ….I am honored to be amongst you deliciously odd, awkward, unusual, unique, and brilliant beings.

WE ARE OTHER.

KRISTEN IS OTHER.

OTHERS SEEK WAYS TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE GLOBAL SOUL.

EMBRACE YOUR OTHER.

Question: How have you been inspired in your Otherness to recognize and honor your Sacred Contract?

A/N: Well, this essay was a bit of a departure from previous posts, but essentially it is a love letter from me to you, to Kristen, to Others. I do hope to post next Thursday as per the usual schedule, but I may take longer if 3D life keeps throwing the curveballs at me. Next time, we’ll show love to our male Rebel Royals. Perhaps Viggo Mortensen (First OTR, now perhaps Snow White?) Garrett Hedlund? Javier Bardem? … We’ll see who jostles to the front of the line…

Oh!  And I’m going to a Bobby Long concert next week too. *happy claps*

Also, I updated the About KJ Page. Leave some answers to the sentence completion in the comment section. LOVE hearing what you have to say!

I’ll be making some changes to the site’s appearance as well, and adding a new page or two perhaps…I’m hatching a diabolical plan with Buff (i.e. poking and annoying her til she breaks).

Part 2 of the New MOO Mission is in discussion with my best girl Bouffant, and our Team Other Co-Captains Buff and CC.

I’ll letcha know on Twitter of progress and updates for The MOO MISH. . . @MusingsOnOther. . . You know me. I’m the one who is Not. At. ALL. SUCCINCT in my descriptors of love for Kristen, Rob and our massive Majestic Misfit Royal Court..

THANK YOUS, LOVE, LIGHT, GROPES, SNUGGLES and NUZZLES to:  My Sister Puss. My dearest Bouffant. Cynically Convy. Buff. @MyCleverAlias. Nail. Missy. Iris. @RobKris13. Possum Besties Justice and Ophelia. And As always: My Cyber Sisters and Readers.

…..and to the FF authors who have owned my unfocused ass this week: BrattyVamp, RochelleAllison, 107YrOldVirgin, MissBettySmith, KrisSalvador

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY SISTERS INDIA & BEANAI!

    Siiiiiiiiigh. After a loooooong, soul-draining weekend (much like what it sounds like you experienced for a bit there), to finally come here on a Monday morning and read your beautiful words is such a treat.

    It’s unfortunate that in our times of greatest stress and frustration, the temptation is to allow the things that bring us joy to fall by the wayside – because we don’t have time. Yet those are the things that keep us refreshed and charged up to deal with everything else! I’m in the middle of trying to rebuild my life as a volunteer, which has gone completely asunder over the last year and a half or so.

    There’s no way to improve upon your summary of the Vogue interview; it was so revealing in all of the right, subtle ways. I find myself more and more frequently defending Kristen/proactively talking about how much I love her to people beyond my close friend circle … and I think this interview will serve as a handy reference. She’s mature far beyond her years; she will not pimp out her personal life; she has intellect and intellectual curiosity; she cares deeply about her work and immerses herself in it; and most of all, she takes her experiences and uses them to develop empathy and a desire to effect change. Oh, and she’s naturally BEAUTIFUL. So WHY THE HELL DO PEOPLE NOT UNDERSTAND OUR ADMIRATION OF THIS REMARKABLE PERSON?

    *ahem* Anyway, I am so grateful that you will continue to Muse and share your inspiration with us. Communities like this epitomize the BEST aspects of this fandom. I do my best to avoid the negativity that runs rampant, difficult as it may be at times (clamping lips to avoid a lengthy rant on the rage I feel when women attack and tear each other down out of insecurity and jealousy). You have assembled a loyal following of like-minded people who want no part of the tearing down. The world is hard enough; none of us need to breed additional negativity.

    Instead, it’s such a pleasure and an escape to come here – not only to celebrate Kristen Stewart, but to take a closer look at our own lives. Sometimes I still shake my head and wonder how exactly I got here, but I know that it was for a purpose.

    Thank you as always for taking the time – even in the midst of the roadblocks life insists on throwing up at the worst times – to share your thoughts and your life. You are touching more lives than you know, and it’s a gift that I firmly believe the universe will return to you tenfold (and deservedly so).

    Now, here’s to a happier, healthier week! Hugs and love across the continent. 🙂

      crying… again! this was wonderful and magical! and you are wonderful and magical! you and everyone on this blog! hugs and kisses from across the planet (as I don’t think we’re on the same continent) :-)))

  2. Emma January 30, 2011 at 7:51 pm #

    Thank you for your beautiful entry. If only you could forward some of your comments to Vogue! They do have a comment section each month. Thank again.

  3. Crystal January 30, 2011 at 6:48 pm #

    *cries* I can’t believe you thought about quitting MOO… This would have honestly been a disaster of epic proportions to the world of Others. True story. SO let me start by saying that I am VERY happy to hear Musings will continue. We’re not stuck with you – we are blessed to have you!!! I wish this comment was a million times longer but it’s been a trying day and words are few and far between but please know that I love you madly and am so thankful to have your inspiration to read whenever I can! xx

    OH and Falling Slowly? One of my favorite songs of life. WIN

    Baby Possum sends you frantic nuzzley sloppy kisses on your chin!
    And I vote for Viggo next week!

    Another amazing musing sweetheart! Thank you for gracing us with your amazing gift. You’re wonderful! Bravo!

  6. ladybug January 28, 2011 at 10:38 am #

    I am SO glad you decided not to end MOO! Not only because of the fabulous reasons you have for continuing but for myself too.

    This blog has been an amazing inspiration in my life!I can not tell you how many times your words pop into my mind at the most random ocassions or how they really have been pushing me forward on the path of better knowing myself and what I want to do in my life.

    As for Kristens and the Vogue interview what can I say? Wow, just wow! Everything was very much close to perfection. When I read about the halfway homes… there are no words, I am so ridiculously proud of her! It’s not like we didn’t know she had it in her, but shows how passionate she is about the things that touch and inspire her and how she acts on it.

    As for the MOO MISH I have no doubt in my mind that you are a great professional and that you will achieve great things! I’m rooting for you.

    (I hope the whole of this comment made any sense, my brain is half dead from work this week.)

  7. buff82 January 28, 2011 at 8:24 am #

    I don’t know if it’s because I’ve been sick for the past three days and holed up in my house, cabin fever not only eminent but most undoubtedly already consuming me. But this made me cry. AND I knew what you were going to say. Your elegance with words is … I don’t have words for it. *thank you sick brain* So, I will express myself in picture. *runs to make pretty things for MOO* (and I ‘aint talking sweaters for cows) Wow, I shouldn’t attempt humor now. Okay love, I will stop while I’m not far behind. Wonderful post, honest, touching, perfect. ((hugs)) ♥ B

  8. mrowemoon January 28, 2011 at 8:21 am #

    Oh KJ, so glad you are continuing your blog. I love your words as they are laced with encouragment, guidance, truth and love. I understand, as many probably do as well, that real life can surely pack some punches that cause you to take a few steps back. During that time, some re-evaluation is exactly what should happen. Glad it lead you back here. I would LOVE to bond with you in person. In fact, you and BettySmith would be at the top of my people I would like to meet to share coffee or a drink with. However, I am halfway across the country so that makes things a little difficult unless I find myself in that direction.
    Keep strong.

    Writing MOO makes you happy…well it makes me happy too! I am so relieved to read that you plan to continue sharing your Musings with us. Hopefully this won’t sound corny, but there are so few people who truly inspire me…you and your GLORIOUS words inspire me. Thank you for all that you do AND for the Birthday shout out! Hey, purple is good again bb…purple is good. 😉

  10. Peri January 28, 2011 at 7:05 am #

    Darling KJ, thank you for another wonderful Musing. I am breathing a sigh of relief that you are continuing down this path, as your insightful comments and sane, calm voice are a lifeline in an otherwise vapid and vitriolic social network. Thank you for reminding us of the pretty and the good. And I hope, in your moments of doubt–regardless if your next post is one of thousands to come or your last–that you remember there are many of us here who love and appreciate you!

  11. DeeDreamer January 28, 2011 at 6:25 am #

    Dearest KJ – What a lovely thing to wake up to this morning! I’m truly touched and inspired. I’m thankful for many things related to this topic, but mostly thankful you feel compelled to continue MOO; it’s truly a gem and I’d sorely miss it! This post couldn’t have come at a better time. I’ve been feeling so…blah. Not really a good way to describe it, I suppose. But feeling somewhat run-down and confuddled: detached emotionally from those closest to me with whom I seek connection, yet far too engaged and “responsible” feeling for the emotional well-being of others in my life I don’t have responsibility for. This essay has reminded me that what I have with those of us who share The Bond is as real as other things in my 3D life, and there is value and accomplishment that can come of this passion I have, even if others don’t choose to see it. 🙂 Thank you, as always, for sharing with us all.
    xoxo

    i didn’t know you were considering not writing Musings anymore….i’m so glad you decided to keep going….we all need to be reminded of the ispiration that surrounds us….thank you Kai….*love how you used “purple” for Beanai’s b-day shout out…purple is good, it’s okay…we can love it again*

  13. MissEE January 28, 2011 at 4:56 am #

    Thanks so much for the shout out, Doc! I think your plan is simply genius and I have a wonderful feeling that it was meant to be…it’s fate.

    You are a wonderfully gifted person and writer. I can’t speak for your professional abilities, but I have a sneaking suspician that you can pretty much accomplish ANYTHING that you set out to do, so I give you all my support and well wishes!

    SQUEEEEEE again to this GREAT idea and to you, lovely Doc. Love ya.

  14. Ana January 28, 2011 at 12:42 am #

    I don’t have a lot to say… just this: I simply adore you, KJ, and I adore all these wonderful people and this incredible bond we have all created here! I cry every time I read the posts and the comments… this is simply magical! xo

  15. Mari aka PR aka Pai January 27, 2011 at 11:31 pm #

    Oh my dear KJ, your writing is sublime, you have such a wonderful way with words and it is because they come from your soul and they undoubtedly reach mine every single time. I am honored to be your friend, your sister, tu hermana. Synchronicity is a very powerful thing and it is such an amazing thing when you can pinpoint it. Looking forward to going to Bobby Long’s concert and spending some quality time with you next week. Much love

  16. Indiapale January 27, 2011 at 10:13 pm #

    K- I am so glad that you decided to continue with Musings. It doesn’t have to be every week. Whenever we get this wonderful gift from you is just fine. My hope is that things turn around for you soon and sounds like they already are! You are a gifted writer. Thanks for sharing your gift with us.

  17. teb January 27, 2011 at 9:27 pm #

    OMG KJ….I love this! SEEK WAYS TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE GLOBAL SOUL. Synchronicity has stepped in for me this week in the form of your Musings. Thank you so much for this. I will endeavor to continue my own work on my Sacred Contract. Love ya!

  18. MattB January 27, 2011 at 9:05 pm #

    I am truly humbled that any word from me helped you in any way. I hold you in the highest esteem. Your message is Truth and needs to be heard. Kristen continues to amaze us all with her royally imperfect perfection. A Princess of Power indeed.

    I can think of nothing more positive that we, as fans (both personally and professionally), can do than to honor and support Kristen’s vision of helping the truly lost who are trying to find their way back. I would be happy to lend support to any ideas you have for supporting her vision, including some kind of foundation or contribution. I’ve already named it in my mind: Mallory’s House.

    I’m so happy for myself and your other readers and friends that you are going to continue MOO. We are the beneficiaries of your spiritual largess.

    Much love…Matt

  19. Mel452 January 27, 2011 at 7:52 pm #

    I’m sorry you weren’t feeling the greatest darl. Hope you are much better now. There is nothing like the power of our Reigning Queen Kristen to make everything so much better and clearer – whether physically or mentally. 🙂

    So glad that you are still going to continue with Musings even through your hardships lately *pouts*. You definitely have a gift in making people feel better through your musings. Hoping you can feel comforted in that and feel better in that for yourself.

    ❤ x ❤ x ❤

    • KJ January 27, 2011 at 8:01 pm #

      Hiya Darl. I’m vastly improved since last week. i really don’t think I could have written anything last week, even if I weren’t sick. Had to regroup and revitalize. And nothing like an inspiring interview and beautiful pictures of Kristen to kickstart the healing process! Thank you for your very very kind words and encouragement. You always have a way of calming and soothing me as well. Hugs. KJ

  20. Cheermom January 27, 2011 at 7:49 pm #

    I’m so glad that you have decided to keep going with this. While I do understand your need to re-evaluate things, I’m going through that in my own life right now, I’m glad that it pointed you in this direction!! You help out so many people with this blog, and as your readership continues to grow, you are inspiring so many others. Follow your bliss KJ!!!

    • KJ January 27, 2011 at 7:58 pm #

      Hello my dearest, darlingest Zumba Queen of The Seas. Thank you for your kind words and confirmation to continue forth. Re-evaluation and re-grounding are never bad ideas, so I’m glad I’ve delved into it and have returned feeling happier and surer than ever to continue on this path. I know things are tough for you right now, but I support and encourage you to do whatever you need to do to take care of yourself and your beloveds. BTW, YOU inspire me, my sister. Follow YOUR Bliss, sweet girl! xx

  21. theraingirl January 27, 2011 at 7:39 pm #

    Such a beautiful post full of calm and praise. Well done.
    Don’t forget you get to pic an outtake for Peeperward and Stripperella 😉

    • KJ January 27, 2011 at 7:55 pm #

      Hi honey! Thank you for your kind words. Coming from you, with your own gift for eloquence, means a lot. I haven’t forgotten about my outtake choice! I LOVE your story and I think I’m just overwhelmed with many options. I may have to confer with you about possibilities…? Thanks again for reading and supporting my rambles. xo, KJ
