Happy Holidays Everyone!!! I hope every that celebrates Christmas had a wonderful Christmas!!! For those who celebrate other holidays, I hope your holidays were just as wonderful!!!
Lots of things have happened the past month…..things that I never thought I could do, but somehow managed to do it. I feel that I am able to look at things in a different light after the last few months. I successfully completed and passed my first semester of massage therapy classes. If I continue how I want to continue I will be a licensed therapist by the summer, which feels super surreal and very nerve wracking…because I just barely passed the first semester…..Multiple choice scan-tron tests are my downfall. So, I guess I will be hitting the tutoring center at the college I am taking classes through. I also created (with the help of my wonderful mother) two different plans to help with my stress level and to promote success in the program. Stress affects me in the worst way possible. When I get stressed out any symptoms that I have from my medical conditions increase and become more prominent. So the goal going into this next semester is to stay as stress free as possible and keep my eye on the prize!!! I feel excited for classes and look forward to learning everything and anything I can. How was everyone’s Christmas (if you celebrate Christmas)? I had a lovely Christmas, I celebrated it with my wonderful Mother (I live with her). We had a wonderful Christmas Eve with just the two of us at home and than Christmas Day we had some family over. It was very bitter sweet feeling to not get a phone call from my brother. I miss him a lot, but I know that he was around in spirit. It you don’t celebrate Christmas, I hope you had a wonderful time during the holiday of your choice. Switching to the topic of New Years, does anyone have any New Years resolutions? My resolution is to delve deeper into my yoga practice and start a meditation practice too. I feel that I have started neglecting my own personal practice, which is bad for my physical and mental health. I need to practice what I preach and right now I am not doing that as much as I should. I need to be able to take care of myself before I try to take care of other people.
Sending all of you light and love as we enter the new year!!!
