Today is amazing.
I am feeling so grateful. When you work hard an long on something and it starts coming together it is very rewarding. When someone else gives you positive feedback on your project it can make you feel the time, effort and financial outlay is all worth while.
After our first weekend of the school’s newest 500 hour class. I wrote one of my students to see how she was doing. This is what I received back …
“I am great!! I came home and gave my husband a massage on what wehad learned!! I was trying to keep it fresh on my mind!! I am so so excited and in awe of everything! I have been just looking at the different muscles! I was wanting to go to class not work on Monday! I can’t wait till this weekend! Thank you so much for investing in us!”
I love my job.
Now after these same students have passed their midterm test and have begun their clinical work with clients from outside the school I am more and more grateful. They are investing in themselves. Its hard to keep a full time job, plus family, plus study for the next exam or get ready for our next class. We know its all worth it however as we are all working toward a better future, Every day. Some of us the future means a job where we can do meaningful work helping other people and have a flexible schedule where we can have quality time with family. Others want to have a career where they can travel and see other places while making lives of others better. For me it is a chance to create a larger community of massage therapists and professionals who are excellent at their craft and can change the health of Northwest Arkansas and beyond.
It’s exciting and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
