Yay.

Have I mentioned lately how much I love doing massage? It’s almost as if days off and workdays aren’t so different anymore, because I thoroughly enjoy what I’m doing.

For the record, if you ever find yourself wondering if it’s worth the risk and effort to train and prepare and risk everything to do something you think you might love to do, it absolutely is. You can quote me on that.

Anyway. This whole seismic shift in my life is having a strange impact on my emotions. Just now, I was watching Queer Eye. They were making over this dad who had adopted half a dozen kids or so, all from different ethnic backgrounds. One of the kids was saying how he and Dad are always saying that they love each other. And the kids were so sweet, and the wife was so supportive… I just started to weep.

I don’t know. I feel good. I feel alive. I’m just not used to feeling this much. It’s like I’ve been in prison all these years, and I am finally myself for the first time ever.

So, yay.

That's really it though...isn't it? To find something that you love doing *so* much that the work days and non-work days are just as enjoyable! I used to feel that way when I played theater, thinking in the back of my head "I can't believe they are paying for this! I'd do it for free!"

'Course, that doesn't get the bills paid!

Teaching hasn't brought me quite the same satisfaction level as performing did, but it is still up there. Sharing what I love with these kids gets me so excited sometimes...even they laugh at me!

All about finding your passion!
