Long Have I Walked A Path Of Gray,
Between Moods, I Do Not Stray.
A new year came upon us in the time I have been absent, and with it marked a time for letting go of the old and embracing a new calling. I’m in a phase of my life. Health and wellness is calling for me, for my attention, and my body cannot be ignored.
A year ago, I sought out help for my emotional/mental health while also working on improving my physical/spiritual wellness. Last month, a therapist joined my team. I’m being tag-teamed.
On one side, my physical and mental wellness is being targeted. I’m tracking my moods, what triggers a happy spike and what drags me down. It’s enlightening. On the other hand, my other helper is helping me learn interpersonal skills. That’s going to be fleshed out Wednesday.
In January, I started classes for Massage Therapy; I have a 30min commute four days a week to get there. It takes time and some of the days I want to skip. I haven’t, so far, but I have missed a few days for other reasons.
In class, we’re getting ready to tackle a fullbody massage. That starts Wednesday. Today and tomorrow focuses on back, hips, and glutes. The work done on the glutes is very mechanical and is a lot easier than I thought it would be. It’s a good way to learn anatomy and where all the muscles are, truth be told.
So far, I’ve made start A’s on my tests. I have a 96 in the class. Which is, frankly, amazing. I can’t remember the last time I did so well in school!
This year is a new year.
It’s time to make a positive change.
