It is September again, and a new school year for the kids. However, it can be a time for learning new skills for the adults too! I never stop learning new things. I am and always will be a seeker of knowledge and wisdom. However, now that I am of a certain age, having reached my 5th decade, I am giving back by teaching others and I use my life as an example.
For the last 10 years, I have been a ‘crazy’ mom trying to balance and juggle 2 kids, a husband of almost 19 years, and along the way a coterie of pets: 2 bunnies, 2 guinea pigs, and a little dog.
Not satisfied with my nursing career, I began a 10 year course of study in various healing modalities including: childbirth education, body-centered hypnotherapy, homeopathy, energy medicine, reiki, herbal medicine, meditation, and other more esoteric forms of healing.
In essence, I inherited from my mother, Dr. Mom, the desire to heal. People used to tease her that she practiced medicine without a license. My dream of helping people to heal and live healthfully also stemmed from having a mother who had been very sick when I was a little girl.
Many certifications later, I struggled with juxtaposing my desire to work with clients and my equally strong heart-felt need to be a mother at home with my children. It was not an easy path. There are times I thought I was at the end of my rope. My schedule was grueling: awakening at 5AM to exercise, driving my kids to school, after-school activities, HW helper, reading the news, making dinner, and then burning the midnight oil to complete assignments for my school. In addition, I taught healing classes at various venues and saw clients at home, part-time.
Being a mother is a challenging, frustrating and rewarding job in and of itself! It is probably one of the most important jobs a woman can have. But there was something inside of me that needed to be explored, aside from my love of being a mommy. My passion for helping people, educating people on holistic health, and options for healing and wellness could not be quenched and so I tried to ‘do’ it ALL!
Was this a healthy way to live? Can anyone relate to this driving need to perform, succeed, and attempt to self-actualize their potential? Does loving one’s family and being a mom mean that I have to give up my dreams?
As I look back many years later, I realize that for some reason, I was in a big rush! I felt that I was running out of time. With each birthday, I felt that by the time I fulfilled my dream, I would be as old as Sarah, wife of Abraham, who had her first child in her 90’s.
This past May, I finally opened the doors to my first real healing space in the office of Dr. David Fulop, DC, in Mamaroneck, NY! (Funny story for another post about how this happened!) I still have to balance, juggle and judiciously schedule my time, so there is a fine balance between family, work, friendship and ME time!
I now know that I have all the time in the world. (How? Will tell in another post!) I also have the Energy Medicine tools with which to balance STRESS, heal aches, pains and stress-related illnesses. These are the modalities that I use on myself, on my family and with my clients. And they really work!
