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~
