  • Two roads diverged in a yellow wood and I, I took the one less travelled by, and that has made all the difference.

I am where I am…hmmm where am I?

One week left in Raton, NM to go! And then it is back to Nashville and my dear hubby. Sigh. So many exciting possibilities ahead, and not sure what I am going to do with them, or for that matter what they all are. This job has been a stopgap for me after completing my MSN in December. It feels like the waiting to grow up (so I know what I want to do  you know) period is coming to a close, and yet I am still not really sure. Teaching is a possibility, and one that I feel mildly enthusiastic about. I have applied to two universities and one community college. And I think that I would find that interesting and stimulating, and perhaps I would really love it. It would give me the opportunity to delve more into theory, which is an aspect of nursing that I love learning more about.

But it isn’t my dream. I want to really use the skills I have obtained – and to continue to develop more! To put the theories and applications into practice – to truly help people realize their potential through potentiating healing of the body mind and spirit. Ah, but the question is, how do I go about doing that?! And no, I am not finding any job postings that meet that job description. Ideally I want to work independently, say in a holistic health clinic of some nature – where I can counsel and use the wonderful Reiki that I have had so little opportunity to put into practice (well, at least broadscale). And again there is the question…..how do I do that? This past weekend, I received some very sage advice to “act as if” (now where have I heard that before :)) I know how to do what I want, and just do it. Hmmm. I was told to reach for my dreams, to act in the present instead of waiting for the ‘right’ circumstances, to create opportunity…..

SO, I took a leap of faith and extended my desires to a friend holistic practitioner. I anxiously await his response. I feel excited about the possibilities, whatever they may be.
