Spirit First

I’m now at the half-way mark on my journey through massage school. And let me tell you, it has been a journey. Not only am I learning what I need to know to pass the state board exam, I am seeing where I’m at in dealing with people. I’d been spoiled the previous few years not having to go to a regular job and be with people on a daily basis with whom I wouldn’t normally spend time. Life is easier when I stay home and not interact so deeply but where are the lessons in that? My future practice with clients will be just that – practice!  I’ll get to practice all those methods of interaction I’ve learned over the years – over and over again. It keeps life interesting and me on my toes. The bottom line is I feel better about myself when I am actively involved in life and not standing on the side-line wondering where it went.

I’d also be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous about school coming to an end in a few months. It’s been nice having some place to be each day and being focused on attaining a goal. But, rather than dwell in the future, I will again pull myself back to the present moment and the task at hand which is to reach out to you, my friends, to let you know I’m still around.

Finally, I want to share a major point that is working well for me. Putting Spirit first in line for my time makes all the rest fall into place easily and effortlessly. At this moment Spirit time includes this post. Homework is awaiting my return but this time with you who is reading this post is a part of my overall spiritual practice. I appreciate you and so I take this time to connect with you and let you know how it’s going. Until next time BE WELL!
