I always feel a flood of emotions and thoughts. Often writing helps me to sort it all out. I am able to filter through the nonsense and process the truth. I am always constantly overwhelmed with my thoughts. I find myself full of ideas and then frozen with the feeling of it being simply “too much”. I want to share so much in life. I try to be open and honest because I genuinely believe that we learn best from the experiences and perspectives of one another.
With that being said. I want to take this opportunity to reflect. I have been more aware of how different I have become in the last year and frankly, I’m really proud of it. I have a much better handle on myself and my mindset. My attitude is intentional and I look at each moment with a “how can I make this better”. (I highly recommend).
I have been a licensed massage therapist for almost 5 months now and I can honestly say that it was the best decision I ever made. I have a natural way of caring for people and through therapeutic bodywork I am able to help relieve people from pain, tension, and stress. If that’s not enough to get me through my days I don’t know what is. I have found that massage has given me the opportunity to meet so many amazing humans. People that are willing to share their stories with me and teach me something new. I am constantly learning and growing and that is something I strive for.
If you would have asked me a year ago about my work life I probably would have cried. I was working 2-3 jobs, balancing massage school, and trying to have a life. I wasn’t happy I was just doing what I thought needed to get done. Now I can honestly say that working gives me joy and brings satisfaction knowing that I am helping people feel better. I almost feel like I shouldn’t get paid and that is how I know.
I guess my point here is; ride the wave. Whatever season of life you are in right now, respect where you are. Just know that if you are putting in the daily effort it will make all of it worth it in the end. It might not come tomorrow, or next week, but continue to work hard and work on yourself.
