Week 19 – last stage of planned personal development

Week 19 – last stage of planned personal development

Well that’s it. This week I completed the last piece of my pre-planned personal development jigsaw. When I retired I had set aside a bit of money for further training. Earlier in the year when I  thought through my business model I decided to include hot stones massage as part of my “offer”. I really enjoy receiving this form of massage and there are relatively few therapists near me who offer it. The course – by Bodyology where I did my diploma – was very enjoyable. And unlike many had a strong focus on how hot stones can be used as an active part of massage rather than just to warm the client. (The latter is the default approach of many therapists and most spas.) Now I’ve got to shift from the fun of developing myself to the more daunting prospect of actively promoting my business. After weeks of a default mood of  smugly delight with my new lifestyle I am once again a little scared.

(And for anyone out there following  this part of my story – yes I am still on call. )
