so where have i been?
the year of fearlessness has begun and is in full swing. starting in january when i had surgery to better myself in every possible way (no, i did not have plastic surgery!). in february i was recovering from said surgery, so that was a wash. in march, i started back to school.
when i was going for my undergrad, i studied music. i am a vocalist. i love to sing at the top of my lungs and to perform and make a general fool of myself, and so make something beautiful come out of a person who did not think much of herself was astounding to me. but, somewhere along the line i began to resent music. it became too technical. i became depressed. i changed schools and moved across country thinking a fresh start would jump start my love of singing. it did not. i became even more depressed. i was going to school for my family, because it was expected of me.
so, i stopped.
fast forward a few years later.
right before husband and i were married i started to think about going back to school. i wanted to do something that interested ME. something that i wanted to learn, then the most unexpected thing happened. i gained inspiration from what could have been a horrible tragedy. my niece emma became terribly ill and ended up in nationwide children’s hospital. she was there from the end of october until the begining of december. after she was released from PICU, she went into a rehab unit. in this unit, she was assigned a to many therapists mainly a physical therapist, and a massage therapist. the later is what inspired me. i wanted to go back to school for medical massage therapy. it took me over a year to get my bum into a classroom.
but i am there know, and that has made all the difference.
