Love Your Personality & Don’t Hide it Away.

Oh dear! My alter ego, Miss Personality herself, Tasheenga, is not happy that her blog hasn’t been entered into the V by Very Blog Awards. I think she feels a little bit left out! Her blog is still a fledgeling and maybe next year she’ll get the opportunity to shine. If she behaves!

She gets very annoyed at me when I instruct her to stay calm and quieten down. Sometimes she tries to help but quite often her input can hinder a situation rather than improve it.

Occasionally I allow her to help me to write my posts on We Are Holistic, but she’s safer over on her own little blog. She can rant and rave all she wants in her own little corner of the internet. Yes, I do value her input but I can’t let her think that she can completely take over. I need to balance all the different parts of myself. Ashamedly, I have to admit, I did try to keep her a secret but by following the advice of a very wise friend, I revealed the true identity of Tasheenga.

My answer to this is, “no you are not too old”. I don’t believe there is any age that classifies you as being too old to go back to education. Don’t look at it as ‘going back’ but see it as a new path in your life, a new beginning and an exciting adventure.

You will never know where the path might lead you, unless you follow it!

The path Continue reading

Lollipop Toes?

Jane Sheehan up date

Feet have not always appealed to me. I have very ticklish feet and for years I couldn’t bear for anyone to touch them, which meant that I had absolutely no interest in touching other people’s feet.  Continue reading

Characteristics of Effective Therapists.

So you’re on the road to becoming a holistic therapist. Or perhaps you’re already there. Is it what you were hoping for? Is it working out just the way you planned?

Sometimes we think we know what we will be great at, only to realise a few months or even years into the job, it is not what we expected. We tell ourselves, ‘I’m just not cut out for it.’ Okay, so maybe you do need a career change but perhaps you just need to work at developing some personal qualities within yourself. Continue reading
