Hello Everyone! Long time no post! For this I do apologize, I have been extremely caught up in life. I hate to say it, but life can just consume me and before I know it I have lost my way in my so called life. But, to be honest I have been studying for my MBLEX (Massage Therapy License), which I did pass (SO HAPPY I PASSED IT). But, now I have to get my application together and cut a check to the state….AND THEN wait eight to twelve for my Massage Therapy License. This all sounds like a drag, but I am quite excited that I will be achieving a 10 year goal. I have wanted to become a massage therapist since I was 15 years old and the idea that this is going to be the start to my new second career and achieving one of my longest dreams sends a ton of thoughts and feelings through my brain (the center of the entire body…..sorry anatomy for the win!).
Since announcing (well tell people that I passed my test) there has been so many encouraging and positive comments, which honestly puts a smile on my face. It is so nice to receive so many positive vibes! While I was telling everyone the results of the MBLEX I received an interesting question from a client of mine. My client asked, “So, now that you have/are going to get your license, what are you going to do now?” The sassiness in me immediately said, “well massage people of course.” I thought to myself I didn’t just pay thousands of dollars to get this license and then throw it all away and not use the new skills I have acquired. But, come to think about it….isn’t that what I did with my bachelor’s degree? Whoops….. But, need less to say I was very taken a back by this question, how is someone going to question what my career will be for the rest of my life? Is this going to be it until my license? Am I just going to constantly get this question of so what’s next?
My thoughts a week later on this subject are screw it! I am going to massage people and they will all like it DAMN IT! But, in reality I am going to try to best I can to help as many people as possible achieve happier and healthier lives through massage and yoga. So if massage lotion in one hand and a yoga mat in the other: I will prepare myself for the start of the rest of my life!
Until next time,
