My Passion for Complementary Therapies
“Llana, where do you find the time???” This is a question I am asked often and my answer is simply “PASSION!!” a massive massive passion for Holistic Therapies. Now please do not be under any illusion! It is tough sometimes trying to juggle family commitments, running my wee business and doing all of the training courses I am interested in. I like many others have had to ask for extensions for essays and sometimes there is just not enough hours in the day. Just writing this post has taken me about 2hrs as inbetween writing I have been making the tea, feeding my cat who was staring at me like she had never been fed and moaning at my husband for not emptying the dishwasher!!!
I have had to work and study hard and I continue to do so. WHY?? So I can offer the best service in Complementary Therapies to all of my clients. I remember a good few years ago when I was told “Llana, there is no career in Holistics, go into nursing you would be more suited to that” at the time I did worry where my Holistic journey would take me. I was studying and doing my Holistics part-time along with my day job and looking after my family. I loved Holistics, it was my ultimate passion but at the time I worried where it would take me as I was spending a lot of money and time on courses etc. So I followed my peers advice and applied to Dundee University for a nursing degree. However as soon as I did that things started to go wrong, the application was going through fine but situations in my personal life started to change and I immediately saw the signs that this was not the path I was supposed to take. It is for many others and I take my hat off to the nurses out there but for me, not where I was supposed to go, so I withdrew my application and decided not to be influenced by other people and just follow my wee heart and thank goodness I did.
My business has been going from strength to strength for the past 3 years and I now have my own wee Holistic Studio. I want to thank all of my clients as some of you started coming to me when I had my therapy bed set up in (I cant believe I am saying this) my living room!!! and you guys are still with me yet. Thank you so much for supporting, encouraging me and of course coming to visit me for your therapies. I look back to these days and think about how everyone has to start somewhere so if you have a dream go out there and grab it. Life is to short, dont look back one day saying….”I wish I had done that” Look back and be proud of your achievements and be happy that you took that wee chance
