I think I have made a decision…on a personal/career note I think that I have decided to “come out of retirement” and start doing massage again after my 6 years hiatus. I did a brief massage on a friend the other day and it reignited my love of helping others through body work. I have always had a passion for it but I lost my love when I was pregnant with Peanut. I became a factory worker churning out bodies like I was on an assembly line. No matter my thoughts or feelings I had to do what was required it was more like selling a product that pursuing a passion and struggled to fit the mold. Massage is spiritual it is a beautiful harmony of prayer, flow and ease of strokes while gliding the tension from someone’s life with every flick of my wrist…working out the emotional wounds deep seeded in the muscles of a war-torn body. I wanted God’s healing and comfort to flow from my fingers and to truly touch a person’s heart by lovingly working through the knots that life, love, heartbreak, parenting and a world gone bad created. My longing to use the tools that God gave me is growing and though it may not be purely through body work I feel like I need to get back in the game of a life lived on purpose. Every massage I learned, I gained strength and encouragement that I was on the right path. My insecurities have been holding me back, the little white lies we tell ourselves that we just aren’t good enough to make the cut. But all I need is good intentions, a little studying and a lot of practice to get my hands and body back into shape where I can comfortably practice the art that God gifted me with. So with that being said I need a game plan. ❤ Time to put on my thinking cap and get on my knees and talk to the one who led me on this path many years ago.
