Busy Lives

Making the most of break-time!

The new day class has completed 4 weeks of the program and I am sure they are feeling full of information and experiences--learning massage, doing homework, studying new vocabulary, connecting with new friends, and juggling life's experiences. I, too, am finding myself busy with all sorts of aspects of school and life.

One of the most satisfying things in my life lately has been connecting with RMIHA graduates. We have a page on Ning (http://massageschool.ning.com/) and grads have been posting there as well as emailing and calling me. Heidi P from the very first class we ever had came to visit last weekend. She's now living and practicing in Santa Fe and her brillant, sparkling energy is as vibrant as ever. Nancy is days away from having her 3rd child; Crissy weeks away from having her first. Kristi's getting ready to move to Hawaii. Jeremy's getting married in January in Mexico.

While we slog along in our everyday lives, worrying about the economy, our practices, and our normal everyday concerns, miracles and connections are happening around us. I think practicing massage therapy is a foundation for remembering the amazing gift of life we have and share with one another. The simple act of touching each other reminds us of the importance of our connections.I am blessed with knowing all the students who've made their way through our doors. We find common ground of life's ups and downs and remain attached to one another through it all.

Life can get hectic, but there's always the relational aspect of it to pull us through.
