So it has been so long since I have written. Since I have spoken to you all, to the world, to whoever is reading this. And this one is the one. I mean, what I am about to tell you, what I am about to share is pretty much one of the most important things I have EVER shared. So get ready for it. In a world where people die out of loneliness, where continuously people struggle and suffer with feeling alone, with feeling like they really cannot do it anymore, where their strengths are just fading, in this world I have learned one of the most valuable lessons I have EVER learned in my life. BECOME A UNIT! (OR TWO) I was the lonely one. Totally. And for a long time it served me, travelling the world by myself, taking over the world by my self, changing countries and battling my battles by myself, learning, growing, developing by myself, setting up businesses, projects, events, festivals, by myself. Living my life by myself. In the last 5 years or so I learned a lot about myself, about being alone and fighting loneliness. Being alone also created such opportunities, amazing adventures and travels I will forever cherish so much. But nearly three years ago the Universe decided I had enough. It was time to become a unit. To find a partner who completely and utterly understands me, values me, loves me, completes me, who fights with me not against me, who makes me stronger, how much we get done for this world, for the animals, because we ARE a unit. Miguel, you truly are the love of my life and I cannot explain in words what that means to me. All of this, every single day we are in this together. Sharing, creating and manifesting our dreams. Being a unit together with you makes me stronger, wiser, better.
BUT I hear you all think, what do you mean Karo with a unit OR two…. well allow me to explain further. I work my absolute ass off everyday, ever since I came to this county ( I did pretty much the same in all the other countries just a side note) and that work has been paying off, I am confronted with the story of my success everyday, I look at it everyday. All these years and years of work it is inside of me, it has become part of me. But like in any success story I did not get here alone. I have a person who I value so highly, who I consider to be more then family, the incredible sister I never had and the BEST partner a girl could ever wish for. Lisa Dickmann is my other unit. On a business level because no way on earth would I be here in a way sane still without her, this business that we both live, love and breathe everyday, oh how hard we work, how much we give of ourselves for our baby, our massive project: #foodprintzcafe seriously you will never know and I really want to give all of you who are thinking of starting a business, a massive new project some solid advice: FIND A PARTNER. Become a unit together because I guarantee you standing together makes all the difference. We pull this big baby together, equally. The secret of our success? Are you ready for this? THE LOVE WE HAVE FOR EACH OTHER! Love is the secret. It always is. The incredible and amazing friendship we build over the years, through different countries and continents, that is without a doubt the secret of our success. I get to be with my best friend everyday, I get to live this dream with her, it makes it all worth while. We too complete each other, love each other, respect each other and we have found, build and created some magic together and wherever life will take us next, after this baby grows up we will always have that.
I can get lost in translation here sometimes (Portuguese is really hard!) and I can feel deep loneliness at times, because this is not my home, BUT I have not one but two incredible units I have build from nothing but pure LOVE and I am so grateful, I consider myself so ultimately blessed and I got to learn and see hands on what having a partner truly means. After all that time, all these years alone I really got to see the beauty of being a unit, or two…….
I love you so much Miguel. I love you so much Lisa.
Sparky, I love you the most. They know. It’s okay.
