Over the last month I have received several wonderful cards of thanks both from clients and friends. However, I have not been doing anything different or out of the ordinary. So why the sudden change?
We live in a society where it is often easier to say “thank you” to a stranger who holds open the door for us, than to deeply and specifically thank a friend or loved one. Is that because we do not appreciate those that are close to us? I think not. Quite the opposite seems to be true. Our friends and family are constantly doing things to support us. We love them. We cherish them. Maybe we even take them for granted. But do we remember to thank them?
Now it is my turn to thank you. Each of you came to me looking for something: increased balance, less pain, greater ease of movement or simply to feel better. You gave me your trust. You trusted me to care for you in the best manner I knew. During this time, you opened up to me. You shared your concerns and fears as well as your joys. You chose to make your health a priority in your life. And you chose me to help you with your health.
You have given me a life that I love. Before I met you, I never realized how fulfilling and invigorating work could be. Occasionally I may come to work a little tired, but I always leave energized. You challenge me to be the best bodywork practitioner I am able to be. And for all of this, I thank you.
