As I listened, I realized that she was enrolling in this program not because it inspired her or it was her passion, but because it had worked for someone else and they had encouraged her to do it. It seemed like the sense of doubt was coming from her higher self, knowing, "here we go again, working hard but not towards our own dream." Something about that conversation struck me. Which is why I decided to write about it.
But as I was writing, something unexpected happened. I was the one who was inspired to do something I had not been considering. All of a sudden it hit me that I should go to massage school. It was not because the work I was already doing wasn't my true work, but rather that it is that made me know the inspiration was one to follow. Instead of finishing the blog post I started researching massage schools.
On the practical side I knew that massage would be something good to offer my clients as my practice grows.
My healing was evolving in a way that I knew could only benefit from having a more formal education in anatomy and physiology.
As luck would have it, one of the schools in town had a program starting within two weeks that fit my schedule. Once I truly decide on something I normally jump in with both feet so this was no exception. However, I forgot how much time it takes to be a full time student. Although my writing did not completely stop these past few months as I have written a few articles for local holistic magazines, my blog unfortunately suffered.
My "active hibernation" is over. I say active because although my blog was quiet, my life was anything but. As of this past week I have graduated Massage school, taken my exam for the state and filed for my license. That means very soon I will officially be offering massage as part of my practice and also that I will writing in my blog again. In fact I'll have the opportunity to make up for all the writing I did not get a chance to do. For the month of April I will be the guest blogger for Faith Squared's Project You. www.faithsquared.net.
I'm excited to have the time to write again and look forward to sharing with you again.
