There are times when a change is the only thing you can do.

Greetings and Salutations...................
.....tee hee hee

No really my wonderful SP friends and sisters of the emoticon it's still me NIMAWEYGH or Nimsy, Nims, Nimmykins, Nimmers, Nimmie or just Nimma.

But today something changed for me. I realized that after years (3/2007) of being NIMAWEYGH I felt different today. I felt a change was needed and that it was time for just me Karla(KARLAS-KORNER)to be born and to step into the light and shine. (thanks for helping me see this Allie)

Recent events in my life with someone I met here on SP changed drastically and I have done a ton of thinking and soul searching about this. At first I was so hurt/sad and then I was just miserable that it had all happened and then something *changed* in my heart & mind.

I realized that all things change, the relationship I had with my Mom has evolved over the years and changed.
The relationship I have with my hubby has grown and changed too.
Fur kids have come and gone in my life throughout it and I have been changed by each one of them. Sadder but wiser and with more love to give each time.
Some friendships on this site have also grown/changed and some have bloomed into friendships outside of SP a big change.
But some friendships have run their course on this site as well, some short/sweet, some a bit longer/funnier but eventually we lost touch, moved on. Some we still speak in passing and others I never see.

But if I really think about it all of these have touched me in some way, good or bad. I have learned from each of them, because of some of these I have been changed.
And in the end the change has been for the best.

Our lives evolve and move forward as they should. Our dreams and desires move forward and change and we hope always for the best. Time does not stand still and eventually change will happen to us all. We can only pray it is easy or good but if not then we must find a way to move past it and continue on.

If we let the thought of change stop us in our tracks then we will stop moving forward and our lives will become stagnant. We must find it in our hearts to embrace change good or bad and sort through it and come out the other side *changed* hopefully for the better.

Change allows us to learn the most about ourselves. It allows us to find ways to deal with it in a positive or negitive manner. I found that I don't always deal with change in a positive manner but now that I have learned that, I want to change that as well.

So in saying all of this it was time for me to make a change in my life here on Sparkpeople. It was time for me to stop hiding behind NIMAWEYGH and to emerge like a butterfly and become who I really am just Karla. It feels wonderful to unfurl my wings and I can't wait to spend the next few yrs on here just being me.

I hope all of you will continue on this journey with me that I find so full of endless possibilities for maybe it will make a change in all of us. A change for the very best.

With much love to all my friends.

    Well, Miss Karla, just want you to know that you are wonderful by any name.

    As Shakespeare said, a rose by any other name would still smell as sweet.

    We create names on line to protect ourselves from predators, mean people and thieves. So I entirely understand why you have many names. Since you are creative and a writer just adds more reason to the mix of your creative names.

    I am happy you are ackowledging change and this is a good change for you. Just want you to know that you are the same person by any other name and smell just as sweet to me.

    Hi Nims (Karla).
    I did not know that you had changed your name and was wondering what happened to you.
    A beautiful blog. I love the discoveries you are having, the reflections you are experiencing, and the wings that are unfolding - ready to fly.

    What a lovely corner it is. I want to curl up on the swing on the porch and stay awhile watching the boats go by sipping tea and is all about this journey, turning pages, new chapters -- always growing and changing and learning about ourselves. Lovely to have friends in all the walks of our lives to walk with us Karla!

    Why not? An updated name, a fresh start, an "I-know-who-I-am" positive change. Sounds great. Make it yours and live your dreams, and not just someday.... everyday that you possibly can! emoticon
