I can now officially put those magic letters after my name!!!! I now am the proud new owner of a Diploma in Massage Therapy from the Atlantic College of Therapeutic Massage!!!! It has taken me 18 months of continuous, hard work, plus another 450+ hours of clinical experience, but tonight, when I graduated (with Honours, no less!), it all hit home. I am now a Massage Therapist! I am now a member of a community of knowledgeable health professionals, dedicated to facilitating the health and healing of others.
2010 is the begining of not only a new chapter in my life, but a new life, altogether.
For all of you who have a passion, but are afraid to pursue it - look past the fear, and feel the desire burning within you. Feed the flame until it burns past the fear, and you can't NOT try!
I received a card tonight, that read "Behind every success is effort... Behind every effort is passion... Behind every passion is someone with the courage to try." Live your passion, push beyond the fear and grasp your dreams firmly in both hands. You CAN do it.
