When I set up my website and blog under the author section it reads "Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview." Whew - cuz that's all I've got for the moment. I'm a pretty simple person who lives life lovingly. I care deeply and am passionate about many things. I have always had a spirit of (I'm going to call it) entrepreneurship so have been self-employed about as much as I've been employed by others. This is a place where I share thoughts, ideas and happenings. I'm finding that sharing my story (life) helps me as much or more than it helps others and I find that empowering. Keep doin' what you love and lovin' what you do! XO-KM
It was time for a change. As with the seasons of the year, I believe we all have seasons in life, and mine has been changing over the past year. I'm in a season of transition, as I suppose many are and perhaps that's truly what life is all about - transitioning, learning, growing. Whatever the case, change is somewhat inevitable.
And so it goes.
In March, my sister passed away. She went to sleep and did not wake up. As tragic as it is/was, it is the way I want to go when my time on this earth comes to an end. I have spent much time soul searching, reading, grieving, growing, learning and simply being grateful. Grateful that I was fortunate to have a sister, a friend, a confidant. Grateful that she allowed me the gift of being an aunt and gave me a beautiful niece and handsome nephew to watch grow and change. Grateful that although we had our differences, we had an unbreakable bond and unconditional love for one another.
I don't share this for sympathy or sadness, but joy and celebration, for with change comes change. Change in ones perspective, beliefs, emotions, attitudes and actions. I could be angry and bitter, but instead, I choose to celebrate and be joyful and with that comes growth, in my opinion.
It is with a bit of trepidation and yet, great enthusiasm that I transition into new spaces for massage. It is my hope that we will all find comfort and peace and healing in these new places and perhaps even a greater understanding of ourselves, however, as with all change, there have been trials and tribulations. I suppose that, too, is just a part of this cycle of life.
The kinks are being worked out, some more slowly than others (or at least not with the speed and precision I would prefer), but they are being worked out. And that is the important part. For through all of the struggle, in the end, things work as they are supposed to and if we look, we may find a lesson or two in the process.
To joy and good health~
