What’s holding you back✨
This time last week, I was on my way to an annual conference in Indy for something I had just started 4 months prior.😳
I didn’t know any one, I mean I met a ton of people online with the same goals and passion, but this would be the first time I met them in person! 👯♀️
Talk about nerves! This would normally be something I would shy away from, there would be no way you would find me driving alone to a conference to meet people I have never met and hangout with the them for the weekend 🙅🏽♀️
I knew in my gut I had to make this jump, I have worked my butt off these past 4 months, I wanted to see my name on the banners they hang to recognize people who have achieved certain ranks that year! 💚
I don’t know if it’s the energy I get from the community 💥 or it’s the fact that it pushes me to the best version of myself, but man, I am soo glad I signed up those 4 months ago, life changer!!💗🤗
This reminds me of the fight I kept throughout my own journey. When it seems as though we cannot handle our own worlds, our challenges or experiences and even who we are; when we feel overwhelmed, lost and alone; when the fire of the world is simply too hot and we feel as though we're losing the fight, that's when we need to fuel our fire within. Fuelling that fire, gives us the very best chance of surviving.Once we find this fire, it shows us our own strength. It gives us something to fight with, to give our all, the belief to face challenges. It helps with self-discovery, perspective,changing our mindset, learning how to cope.
When facing challenges with mental health, it can feel like we're burning in our own fire, it's this fire that we need to fight. I believe this fire is separate to who we actually are inside. It's an external entity to the real fighter who will inevitably come out as the victor. Our challenges do not define us so we need to keep them separate, this keeps us in a position to conquer them and survive their attempts to take over.
As with everything, we have a choice, in which fire to fuel. We can label ourselves as whatever and let the smoke suffocate us or we can choose to fuel our own inner fighter and survive whatever struggle arises.

Why do we beat ourselves up so much I heard Rachel Hollis speak last week. She is incredible!! She said “COMPARISON is the DEATH of JOY”. Such a powerful statement! I have spent many wasted seconds, minutes and hours comparing myself to others.
If only I was
👉more confident 👉in better shape
And the list can go on!
Well I will tell you what...all these thoughts do is make me feel bad about myself🙇🏻♀️. Can YOU relate Two years ago I had more negative thoughts than positive thoughts about myself. By surrounding myself with a group of positive and encouraging women I have learned some self love.
While I am down on myself a lot less these days that negative talk still creeps in at times like when I had this picture taken. I’m standing next to a cardboard figure and feeling insecure about how I look compared to her😟🤦🏻♀️. All we can do is strive to be our best each and every day. Do you need some support to learn some SELF LOVE 💗 My sister tribe is here for you. We want to support all women to stop hating on themselves!! Message me if you are struggling with some self love and would benefit from daily positivity in your life👍😊♥️.
✨There is purpose to this process and remember your not walking alone. He gives you strength, courage and hope!

A few months ago ...
... verloor ik mijn energie, mijn vuurtje in mij & het plezier in de dingen die ik deed. En toen was de motor op.. De tijd is voorbij gevlogen (en toch ook weer niet). Dagen werden weken en weken werden maanden.
Vandaag kijk ik even terug naar die dagen die weken werden en toen maanden 🍀 Vandaag mocht ik tijdens mijn workout weer ervaren wat het is als dat vlammetje weer op gang komt, die power van binnenuit🔥 Heerlijk genieten (en ook nog is grenzen bepaalt en op 80% getraind 😊) !!! Progressie is zichtbaar, zowel in fysiek herstel als mentaal en dat doet mij goed!
We zijn er nog niet maar we komen er wel, ieder stapje vooruit is er één 🌸🙏

Anais Nin, one of my all-time favorite literary figures and writers of erotica, along with her fiery devotion to the deepest desires that drove her to publish some of the most unapologetic writing of her time are such an inspiration to me. For those of you who don’t know what an iconic and controversial woman she was, her life and work reveal someone unafraid of baring her deepest self in order to live her life full out and leave no part of her longing unexpressed. Her brazen writing reminds me that if we truly want to live a passionate life, if we want to look back on our most intimate relationships without regret (which includes the one with ourselves), we’ve got to take those most vulnerable yearnings, wants and requests we’ve hidden deep inside for no one else to see and give them a way out. .
Maybe you’re in a loving relationship, but want to spice it up and don’t know how to ask. Or you hold back your deepest feelings for fear they won’t be reciprocated. Or you end up allowing touch that doesn’t actually turn you on. All of these scenarios point to exactly what Anais Nin is talking about in this quote, life’s hunger for feeling the fire inside...
I have a practice of deepening my breath, squeezing my pelvic floor and letting the breath start to awaken my internal flame . Then asking, what would would make it better. .
Is there something you do to connect with your ♨️ .

I saw this quote yesterday & it spoke VOLUMES to me. TBH over the last few weeks I misplaced my Kimmy Spark. Its wandered off many times but there’s always something that brings it back. I’ve been beating myself up that I couldn’t seem to pull myself out of this slump that my anxiety put me in. “Kim you have orders to do, you have texts to respond to”. But, I have learned sometimes – Its okay not to be okay. Some people think me admitting this, admits defeat or a bad business owner. I think it shows strength to admit at the end of the day I am only human. You don't have a right to the cards you believe you should have been dealt but have an obligation to play the hell out of the ones you're holding. Through the hardest times in my life I began to push positive thoughts, quotes & good vibes. Pushing the positivity on days I didn’t want to were the days I needed to the most. Eventually friends started calling me “Kimmy Good Vibes”. I started channeling my energies into positive things like my passion for crafting I’ve had since I was a little girl. On the worst days that’s where you would find me. I combined the serenity with my love for crafting, a dash of positivity & a few sunflowers (&the support from the amazing people in my life) & KimmyVibes.Com finally happened after 2 years of so many of you believing in me and my products. If that’s not something to light a fire inside me, then I don’t know what is. If anyone is even still reading this – Thank You. I think it’s important in a world of social media where everyone is “Living their best life” to show there are the down falls too. The behind the scenes. everyone who looks so happy also has tragedies&heartbreaks. We are all human. Be kind to one another. Find your serenity. And if you loose your spark, (its ok) come back with FIRE in your soul. Its ok to share the pieces of you that aren’t always sunshine & rainbows because they are a part of who you are. Bc of the scars I have battled for years with someone I love most in the world suffering from drug addiction, I get to share my scars as someone else’s sign of hope. I’m not ashamed to let the world heartbreaks. (continued in comments)
I have danced the Tango many times. Never with a partner. My intented is a Matador in my eyes. Laughing, spinning, gripping skin with passion. The seduction glaring while glaring into the eyes of one another. Not only is your blood, and heart pulsing. You're breathing pick ups in fiery waves, seen in the soul through ones eyes. The Tango is suppose to be respected. That's how the dance between two lovers, explode between one, another. Electricity shared among the lips as the just rub against each other.
Passion is never breached, love is never dammed! It's The Tango! Have fun burning flames through the dance floor. Leaving trails as your red high heels carefully, but strongly stepping across it. Being swept in the moment of no cares....just fun! Be daring with the arch of the eyebrows. And dive in, as in becoming the fire of one's heart! Dare, and challenge your Partner to out step you. Like is about taking chances. Spin across the wooden dance floor, smiling and laughing. While he chases you across it, playfully! Then have him wrap you in his arms uniformed, leaning into you. The seriousness comes up your faces. You two mean business between it each other. Reminds me of fancing fencing. It's a liquid/fluid dance that forms each Partner freely to each other. A strong bond that the devil himself could never break! 🔥🔥🔥 #tangodancing #dancefloors #passion #honesty #fireinside #romance #writing #enjoylife
