More than a career

As I write this, I'm remembering my bi-weekly massage that I had this morning. When I got off the massage table, my heart was filled with gratitude for my massage therapist and her "healing touch." She approaches her work as a ministry, a gift she gives to others, a calling. While she enjoys what she does, she also takes it very seriously. It's far more than just a job or even a career for Judy.

I remember once when I came to her for my usual massage, in our pre-massage conversation she learned that I was in the middle of an extremely stressful situation. Judy gave me extra time that day just because she knew I needed it. That's just how she is. I'm so grateful I found her years ago.

Judy loves what she does and is following her passion. Years ago she had been in a completely different career—as a real estate agent. She enjoyed that, too, and saw herself serving others. But what she does now is absolutely her passion, and she's so suited for it. It shows.

Is that how you feel about what you do every day? If not, would you like to follow your passion? To see where your longings lead? What would it take to do so?

Let's talk. Contact me if you want to pursue your dreams.
