What is even happening here anyways? I set this all up, make a few posts, then disappear!
Well my friends, life has decided to challenge how I approach jobs and my career. For the longest time, I thought my worth and value was based on what I do. Especially how much or little I do for it. Massage therapy is not for everyone to follow, but I have found solace in learning how to support others in their goal for self-care.
However, that mindset is easily manipulated. And there is a mindset, much like the "starving artist" mindset that occurs in other healthcare fields. That if you don't make a certain amount of money, you inflicted it on yourself because you didn't "hustle". Oh, but don't make too much money because are you really passionate or just profiting off of others stress and pain.
It comes down to knowing what you and your time is worth. If you waver on that, well good luck, cause once martyr complex settles in, it is difficult to wrestle off.
Anywho, I am due for an update. As it is, I am just getting back into the swing of writing, though I am bobbing past the waves of self-doubt. Yet in the near distance I see my goals approaching, and I just know if I keep keeping on, I will get there.
In the meantime, I have recently created an account at Wattpad. I am very, very late to the site, but it seems like a friendly community and a fun way for me to write multiple stories. Yes, I love fanfiction, and yes I am tossing my hat into the ring of madness. So far they are for my favorite D&D actual play podcasts: Bard Rock Cafe, and Agents of Damned.
Come follow me, revel in more reading, and may the Muses be with you.
Till next time!
