“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom” Anais Nin

What the heck am I doing writing a blog? That’s the question I keep hearing over and over again in my mind. I’m a total introvert and an unusually private person. This is definitely NOT in my comfort zone.

roseIt’s taken a long time for me to get here. Like most of you, I’ve had my share of emotional and physical trauma. At an early age, I learned the wisdom in hiding, becoming invisible. The safety in not being seen. And it worked for a long time….or so it seemed.

Then I began to study John Barnes Myofascial Release. I realized that if I wanted to become a true master of MFR (not a superficial dabbler) I needed to work on myself. One of the first things we learn in John Barnes MFR is that “you can only take people as far as you are willing to go”.

What does that mean? Well, if I won’t commit to my own personal growth, even if it is uncomfortable, can I really help anyone else on his or her journey? Unless I challenge belief systems that don’t work for me anymore, can I honestly ask my clients to? I’ve had to nudge myself along these last four years, slowly revealing layer after layer. Now it is time to blossom and expand to my full potential in order to help others do the same.

So, I’ve let go of the outcome and here I am, open and exposed. My hope is that by being “seen” on this blog that I can spark discussion. I’m not interested in just writing a series of lectures. I am, however, interested in hearing your comments and insights so we can learn and grow together.

It’s a huge risk for me and I would be lying if I said I weren’t afraid. But that’s kind of the point isn’t it? No one grows in his or her comfort zone.
