I have finally decided to take action with my life!

Thursday, March 13, 2008

In 2000 I graduated from massage therapy school, I was 42. I worked at a full time job for 10 years and did massages on the side with my own business from my home. This all happened in MA. When I moved to IL you needed to be nationally licensed and I didn't think I could pass the test. Plus the fact that all the stuff you need to fill out and send in, just to take the test seemed over whelming to me. I haven't had a job in 2.5 years. My excuse was that the test was hard and even if I passed I would not be able to work as a therapist because standing for too long would hurt my back. What kind of roll model would I be if I was fat and out of shape for my clients.

Well, I finally said to myself, enough is enough. Get off your duff and do your stuff! I am scared to death, but I will be sending in the application this month and start reading up on everything.

I figure if I could go to school 2 days a week for 10 hrs. each day, while working full time at a job where I stood all day and raised 3 boys all at the same time, I should be able to pass the test and get a job.

I am writing this to hold myself accountable for my actions. Whether people read this or not, I will just assume that they did.

I am going to start living my life! Then get a car so I can go to my job LOL!

    YOU GO GIRL ! ! I'm here if you need any motivation or support,or just to talk.I think it's great that you are tearing down the walls of excuses.Don't let anything be in charge of your destiny but you.
    All of those things that you did,going to school,while working full time while raising the boys,you did them for the boys because you knew you had to.Now do this for you because you want to.I know it is probably a scary thing to take this on for you but look at what you have accomplished so far.If that doesn't let you know that you can do it I dion't know what will,(except for me telling you that YOU CAN DO IT).I'll be checking in to see how it's going for you.

    By the way if you're ever in Florida,I could use a good massage,LOL.

    Hi. I read your entry and I just want to encourage you to go for it. I'm getting close to 40 and I'm starting to re-think my life. So, I understand how scary it can be to make major life changes. But I believe being truly happy is worth it in the end.

    You go girl!!
