Stress management

When my husband left, I had no idea the direction in which I would be led. As a stay-at-home mom, I knew I needed to get out of the house and explore new career options. So I went to school to become a massage therapist. I figured I would get my stress management consulting certificate as well and little did I know, I would have plenty of time in which to achieve that goal.

As I neared the end of my classes and began massage clinic, I got into a minor bicycling accident, dislocated my thumb, and fractured both elbows. Surprise! Oh goodness, my life is full of surprises, of late.

Anyway, after months of some recovery and a thumb surgery on the horizon, I’m still trying to figure out what to do with my life until I can finally finish my massage therapy program and become certified.

Enter stress management consulting!

I’ve got my book and my online classes underway and, I have to admit, it’s very exciting. Of course, I handle stress very well, myself, as my therapist has told me many times, so, therefore, stress management coaching appeals to me. (handling stress well doesn’t mean that I have no stress. It simply means that I’m pretty good at devising strategies to help me get through it all😊).

Along with my massage therapy certification, I believe I will have a great thing going! I know I’ll be able to help a lot of people experiencing stress for a myriad of different reasons, and that will bring great delight in to my life.

One day at a time, one book at a time, one class at a time.

And, yes, one prayer at a time.

This is how I’m getting through these times of sadness. I’m learning a lot, loving even more, and simply trying to be present and thankful at every moment of each day.

Maybe the holidays won’t be so stressful after all.
