“The most effective way to do it, is to do it.” – Amelia Earhart
A year ago, I was just wrapping up my employment with my favorite boss ever, at my favorite job ever, Pure Massage Therapy. My husband and I were relocating, neither of us having jobs or really knowing what awaited us after the move.
Bolstered with confidence from working for and learning from someone with a successful massage therapy business, and with the support of my hubs, I made the leap and started my own company in Roseville on July 1st, 2015. I’ve been thrilled with the new clients I’ve had the privilege to work with so far and am having a blast nurturing this new business! To top it off, today, I received notice that my Board Certification was approved! It’s definitely one of those “happy dance” moments, and I can put that “to-do” to rest.
In addition to running my business, I’ve stepped into volunteer roles that have provided me with awesome community connections and growth opportunities: I’m a Project Leader with our local 4-H leading a Gratitude Group that I developed, I was nominated for the board of AAUW Roseville as Secretary for this coming year, and I developed and will fill a new role for the group we race with, the National Auto Sport Association, as a new member concierge and hospitality manager.
In life, there are seasons of contraction and expansion. Sometimes we need to whittle down and cut away things in our lives that no longer serve our greater purpose, that are no longer synergistic with our life trajectory. That can be difficult and sometimes painful to do. But, on the horizon, there’s a season of expansion, one of incredible growth as you focus your energy and attention on your top priorities.
My words of encouragement to you are this: when you feel like you’re ready to make a change, take on more, experience more, do more, when you set your intentions in that direction and start to welcome MORE of what you want in life, everything will come together in ways that will amaze you. And when it happens, be sure to take a moment to look back and see how far you’ve come and what you’ve accomplished, and give yourself a pat on the back.
