“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”
― Oscar Wilde
“In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.”
― Robert Frost
For those of you who have been long time followers, you might notice that things are just a little bit different around my site. In an effort to really focus on what is important – from self to family to work – I’ve taken some steps to streamline my work. This also helps me keep a healthy distance from that which adds extra chaos.
“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.”
― George Bernard Shaw
There are times in life when you must accept defeat. Despite all the inspirational quotes and platitudes, falling down a few times gives you a big dose of humility. It also allows you to continually take a moral inventory of everything you’ve experienced. Sometimes it is okay; others times it feels like you are running an obstacle course of burning trash cans while strangers throw rotten tomatoes at you.
The good news is that you will survive. Difficulties might last longer than you want them to last, but it does get better — I promise. However, what does stick around is the desire to never, not ever, be in those experiences again. Your entire being seeks a way out of past turmoils, while also trying to understand all the new growth, as it creates healthy boundaries for the future.
One thing I want to point out, right now, is that you do not owe anyone an excuse for taking care of yourself, finding your priorities, and doing what is important. Wellness is what you need it to be, not what others think it should be for you.
Also, it is never, not ever, too late to have a happy life.
So that brings me to all the site changes.
Thanks to my wonderful new assistant, I’m learning how to better share my work, promote what I do, and stick to what provides resources for my family. As much as I love Spiritual Direction, wellness work, and so on – it is not what brings me joy. Also, it does not sustain, nourish, or flow with my family.
Now is the time for getting back to my roots, a coming back to myself – so to speak – and stop allowing others to steal my sunshine.
With that, welcome to the new and improved Kimboburly Tales. Please feel free to drop me a message if you have any questions about all the changes. There are still a few finishing touches, but most of the work is done.
All my love,
