Earlier today a client asked me how long I'd been a massage therapist for; then she asked me why I decided to pursue it.
Every time someone asks me that question I start laughing to myself because pursuing massage was NEVER an aspiration of mine.
They asked me the same question at massage school orientation... everyone talked about how they felt they had soft enough hands to pursue a career in massage, or that they wanted to get out of corporate world and do something to help people relax, or that they want it to do it for the benefit of helping their spouses or family.
I wanted to be a crime scene investigator, then I wanted to be a wedding singer, then I wanted to produce music, then it was music marketing, event planning, music therapist, guidance counselor, dermatologist...the list goes on but massage wasn't even on the radar.
My soul literally spoke to me. It pointed me in the direction of my dream before I even knew it was my dream and in less than 1 year it became a reality.
I urge you, even if you think it's crazy, to listen to the silent whisper that tells you to do the things you never imagined doing and follow it where it takes you.
I am so stressed lately with this move and finding a new place to live and making (positive) changes to excel my career. I have beat myself up this month and gotten inside of my own head because I feel like I'm not working fast enough or that I'm not where I need to be.
Tonight I paused. And took a deep breath. And looked around me. And my soul said "it is well". Despite the stresses. I was pulled silently into the direction of my dreams and didn't fight the current. I truly believe that I am living my life the way that I was called to live it and that feeling of pride and joy extends far beyond any stress of my everyday life.
I'm just going to keep taking chances and keep having fun and keep drawing closer to the sounds of my soul. 🌱🌼👐🏾👣🙆🏾💆🏾🐛🦋🌞 #takebacktuesday #massagegram #followyourheart #rantover #justrambling #breezy #night
