You love me, You love me not. Either way, it's really ok.

I love the colour red. I think Olivia Newton John rocks, and I love some of the renditions of cover songs on Glee, (no matter how cheesy some may think they are). I love Alexander McQueen or give me a tartan gown from Vivienne Westwood any day. I'm not into the whole 'unce, unce, unce,boom, boom, boom', clubbing thing, I like long walks with a view. My idea of pure bliss is reading the Sunday paper, with a cappuccino, laying lateral on the couch, with the tv on some Sunday afternoon special, but that's just me. This is who I am. But the way I feel, and think, and my personal choices doesn't make me a bad person, and whether you agree or disagree with my beliefs or choices, doesn't make you a bad person either. We all have our own individual tastes and personal opinions, right? :)

I'm not gonna lie, I'd love it if everyone liked me and thought I was talented, and unique, - we all want to be liked and held in high regard. So where do the 'haters' fit into to all of this? I'm sure some of you have seen on my facebook or twitter pages from time to time, some negative or disrespectful people leaving comments for all of you to see, and in the hopes that it will upset me. Well, hopefully, you guys know me enough to know that 'sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me.' I don't give attention to them, cause a life is too precious to waste energy on those that try to seek out and bring others down. I don't know them, and they don't know me. It's one thing for someone to write in to me and say respectfully, they have a different opinion on my music or my acting or on me generally, and that's totally ok. That is their opinion, whether I agree with them or not, I respect it, and I for one will not be rude to them for feeling differently. But it's another, when someone writes in and says something slanderous when they don't even know who I am. And it's when things like that happen to any of us, that we should just treat it as if it's a speck of dirt we just found on our clothes. What do you do? You try and scrape it off or dust it off with your fingers, right? And then, you carry on with your day. The 'dirt' on your clothes will only leave a 'stain', if you allow it to stain. I decided a very long time ago, back to my bullying days, that I was not going to let all the negative, non constructive comments, 'stain' this gal's soul.

Not everyone is gonna get what each of us is all about. We all are our own unique 'novels', with plenty of stories to tell and future stories to unravel and to be told...each 'page', each 'chapter' in the book of our lives, represents our own path, - our own journey. Every day I'm creating a new page in "The Book of Karen David". Some pages are good and some pages just totally suck. 'But that's what makes the journey all the more interesting', as my dear father says. With each new day, you start it off on a blank canvas, and 24 hours later, you've got another page in the book of your life. When I think of it this way, it really makes me want to make the most of each new day. Yeah! 'Carpe Diem!' Some people (Johnny Depp, and Angelina Jolie) even have this phrase tattooed on their bodies as a reminder. lol :) As each year goes by faster and faster, I find myself living each day to the max, and always being grateful for the new day to come. It can be exciting stuff guys, if YOU make it exciting and rewarding for yourselves. Only you can be in charge of that, and that is definitely the beat that I march to every day of my life. 

I always did love George and Ira Gershwin's classic song, 'Let's Call The Whole Thing Off'': 

You like potato and I like potahto, You like tomato and I like tomahto
Potato, potahto, Tomato, tomahto, Let's call the whole thing off

But I'd like the last line above, to instead say, 'let's NOT call the whole thing off.' Cause at the end of the day we should all celebrate our differences...it's what makes us, - us. ;)

Yours Always,

    I think it is the wisdom that comes with getting older, we are who we are, we like what we like and we can not please everyone all of the time. That is what makes each of us an individual, what makes us different from each other, what makes us, us.

    But a world where every woman looked like karen..... now's there's a thought!

  12. Hey Guys.

    Thanks for writing in with your thoughts. This blog was an extension in some ways of last week's blog, about bullying. But good to know that you are all celebrating being you, and singing your own tune! Haters shouldn't bother any of us. If that's the way they want to be, that's the way they will be. But we can secretly hope that one day, they'll learn to love themselves a bit more and give themselves a shot at being decent human beings. ;) xo
