If you asked me a few months ago what I was passionate about, I’d probably say nothing. I used to be a really negative person unable to dream because everything seemed so unattainable. I would talk myself out of trying anything because I was too afraid to fail. But now I know that you have to accept that failure is a part of learning and should only drive you closer to your dreams. I’ve been working really hard and have had a lot of help to change my way of thinking and to be able to realize who I am and what I want out of life. The entire process is truly amazing. Now I seem to have the “problem” of having “too many” things that I am passionate about! I really don’t see it as a problem, I actually see it as a blessing. I now fill my time doing research online, reading, education myself, thinking, dreaming, making a vision board, and sometimes trying to help others to realize how to make this transition from negative to positive. I’m no expert, but I feel having just made this transition it is fresh in my mind and I want so badly to help others realize it’s possible. Sir Ken Robinson has been instrumental in helping me to realize why I am the way I am. I’ll post more on him later.
So in addition to starting massage therapy school on April 10th, I have been focusing on learning more about becoming a lactation consultant and doula. I am also really passionate to learn about attachment parenting, breastfeeding and extended breastfeeding, elimination communication or infant potty training, the family bed, baby sign language, home schooling, and so many other topics related to pregnancy, birthing, and parenting.
