It was therapeutic for ME as the practitioner just as much as it was for the person on my table. Now that I will be going back to my technical job, I will miss out on so many of those one on one sessions.
    Will be building my own business now though so in a couple of years, I will hopefully be in a place where I can open my own practice. Will have to be mobile until then.

    I spend my entire weekend regenerating after a week at work in the office. I love when everyone is at tradeshows. Then its utter silence and I can listen to music.

    Re: Confessions

    I confess something other's may consider really nasty...

    Here's how it goes: There's an internet user called 03bgood (search the name on YouTube). He's considered to be an autistic person, and a lot of people point out things about him that make him seem impolite and like someone who wants to do nothing in his life. I sign up on Kiwi Farms to express my toughts about him, without reading the rules!

    After expressing my thoughts on him, I stopped logging in on this forum for a long time, till early 2019, so I coould express my opinions on John K. and Butch Hartman for the controversies centered around them.

    But nevertheless, I came down to realize that, even though I actually initially criticized 03bgood because I didn't want to turn out to be like him, just doing nothing in my life and always talking but not doing actions (and even if at some points I was wrong for basically forcing him to change without his will, I still believe soe of his behavior could be improved), I just want you to know that I'm not one of those people that will criticize others for being different or expressing different emotions from the others, regardless of gender, color, ethnicity etc.

    That's about it. (I don't want others to forcefully sympathize on me, all hatred is welcome)

    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    You should be able to turn off autocorrect. It tends to make life easier to get rid of it.
    "It is not simply enough to know the light…a Jedi must feel the tension between the two sides of the Force…in himself and in the universe."
    ―Thon

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    Aslan, Prince Caspian by CS Lewis

    Sometimes I passive aggressively type dumb things on my work phone on purpose and then blame it on autocorrect when it's a colleague that's annoying me.
