What's Your Dream Job?

Updated: 3 days ago

The hardest part about doing what you love is figuring out what the heck that is in the first place. There's a rare breed of people who have it all figured out from the moment they enter this world; but most of us have to learn through trial and error. I've had many jobs over the years; from food service, to janitorial work, to reception and even a short stint at the Post Office. I'm ashamed to admit how many jobs I've had; but I can't change my past, I can only move forward and live each day saying I did my best. Through all the ebbs and flows, the trial and errors, the hits and misses, I have put my body through a lot of wear and tear. Some mornings I wake up in a world of hurt and the only thing that makes me feel truly excited is getting a full body massage! Which made me think... I could help people who are experiencing the same kind of pain. People are in pain everywhere; whether its because they work manual labor jobs, sit at a desk all day, are injured from overexercise and strain... the reasons are endless. When I was in high school I went to school to become a Hairstylist, but I was always drawn to the Esthetician side of things. I would volunteer to take any facial or nail appointments that came through the door. I loved the relaxing atmosphere that came with the spa life, and I think subconsciously, I would do these things because I knew If I made a mistake it was an easy fix. I would get $20 tips just for a 20 minute facial and customers would tell me that my facials were better than the ones they received on a cruise ship. Looking back, I wish I would have pursued this career years ago, but its never to late to invest in yourself. A year ago I decided to enroll in massage school so I can help people overcome the same pain I experience as an active person, as well as help them find relief from stress and anxiety. It took me awhile to reach a decision about this, but now I know that it was the right decision. I'm happy to say that after just one year I have finished massage school, passed all my exams and begun working at a beautiful Spa that I can say with confidence is my dream job!
