They say the only constant in life is change. Yet so many of us avoid change more than anything else in the world. We enjoy our cozy little bubble and are afraid to step out of our comfort zone too much in case we rock the boat and never get back on course. I, fortunately or unfortunately, have never been too afraid of change. My motto usually is: "If it doesn't work, we can always change back." I'm happy that has been the way I live my life because it means that I am accustomed to taking calculated risks. I'm not reckless by any means!! But I'm willing to take chances if there is a possibility it will bring positive change to our life.
A few months ago we made a decision to sell our house. There are many reasons why we decided to do this, and I won't bore you with all the details, but let's just say that after carefully weighing out the pros and cons, my husband and I decided that this was a good decision. It was a stressful few months selling the only home our son knows, one which we have created many memories and have amazing friends close by, but it was even more stressful to find a suitable home to start the next part of our journey. We have spent the last two weeks moving into that new home and I have to say, it all worked out amazing as our temporary new location. My office space is a beautiful loft and I have so many ideas for it!! Already based on the new layout we have had more opportunity to bond as a family and I am so grateful.
While moving, I had a chance to go through many papers, files and boxes and I am astounded beyond belief when reflecting back on the past 10 years since I achieved certification, which is the motivation behind this post!! I found my planner/calendar from 2007 when I was first building my business as a Reflexologist. I am so proud of myself for consistently building my clinical practice each week. For getting out into the community and making connections. All while balancing the joy of being a new mom and caring for my new born son. Being a Mom was beyond important to me but I never wanted to just be a stay at home mom. I wanted to be a role model and contribute to our family financially as well. Having a career that allowed me to control my own schedule was - and still is - amazing!!
As a person, a practitioner, a mom and a business a lot has changed these last 10 years and reflecting as I packed and unpacked reminded me just how much. I am so excited for the positive changes we have made recently and I can't wait to share some of the plans for the future of Soul Treatments Wellness.
But for now, I want to leave you with this. If you are thinking about making changes in your life - STOP THINKING and start acting!! Only when you take action will you know if the things you are thinking about will be positive or negative. And because the only constant in life is change, you can always change back if you don't like the changes you make. But my guess is, you will like them!!
I look forward to helping you in the future!!
