I Found My Niche

For all of you "younger" peeps out there that are frustrated with your jobs/careers, feeling stuck in the rat race just to get the proverbial paycheck.  Well, I'm about to tell you my story to give you hope.

If you look at my profile you will see that I just started Massage Therapy Training school in my city.  Can I just say "I LOVE IT!", "IT'S MY THING".  I got the touch baby!  At least that's what everyone I've been practicing on has told me.  Even at a Memorial Day picnic, after massaging many a neck, head and shoulder, I was given the utimate opportunity (challenge :0), to massage a girl who already had her license AND owned her own MT salon!  I must admit I was a little intimidated & nervous at first but since A) I had a few drinks in me and....B) the guy before her said my massage gave him a religious experience, I thought, what the heck, I'm up for it.

So I just followed my instincts and training thus far (only been in school 3 weeks to date) and started doing a cranial (head) then worked down to her neck and then shoulders and upper back.  She told me "girl, seriously, I'm not just blowing smoke up your ____, you have the touch and will be very successful after graduation".  She said that I was even better than some licensed people she had interviewed for her shop!

Ok, imagine it would be like Tiger Woods telling some dude on just an average Golf league that he was better than some Pro's he knew.  I was on cloud 9....million my peeps!  She has a good rep. in the business too, so for her to tell me all that, gosh what an encouragement.

I start Anatomy class on Monday and with her words the responses of my "massage subjects", it will give me the incintive to study, study, study!

So back to my title, I found my niche and it's making people feel good while at the same time bringing health and wellness to their bodies.

I was always in stressful management, conflict type of jobs my whole life but now, no more confrontations, just relaxed and happy smiles from people and hopefully future clients....stay tuned, I will write more on this in the future!

Practice on me I like a good massage

You are a goddess! If you have this touch there is nothing better in the world than what you can do for people. I think everyone should experience it.
