Interview by Kimberley Black on her journey with Myofascial Release Therapy | Giving Thanks to Maria Chan Wai
A year with mixed emotions, attitudes, opinions, outcomes, etc. Remember no feeling lasts forever, and no emotion is permanent. As we settle into feeling the WHAT IS, it too can change as quickly as the weather.
"Fluidity of the sea, not the rigidity of irresistible law, characterizes human conduct, especially in the midst of a calamity."-Nathaniel Philbrick
As defined by online dictionaries: "A paradox (aka an antinomy), is a logically self-contradictory statement or a statement that runs contrary to one's expectation". As we slowly start to have HUMAN Interactions I've noticed these are riddled with paradoxes. Therapeutic touch helps in many levels, I see changes in emotions, patterns of movements and behaviours; a mirror of what lies beneath the surface.
I invite you to do a journey and see what your own programming says, do you like what you see, feel, hear? Through my personal journey of Myofascial Release, I remember the words from John F. Barnes: "Is this serving you? If not, give yourself permission to let it go". I invite you to gather your inner strength, the courage is within you.
"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy"-Martin Luther King, Jr.
Acceptance, we are all in a historical moment that is bringing a wave of emotions, some are familiar and some are new, our power lies on what we do next! Our Actions/Reactions can be a catalyst. Accept what IS…Start with tiny action steps and see them grow. Give yourself a hug, receive your smile in the mirror, drink a tall glass of water first thing in the morning, and breathe in a little fresh air. As the weather warms up, engage in socially safe activities: walking, hiking, biking. On the colder days, keep using your online tutorials, let your imagination guide you.The key is we all have good days, ok days and bad days, this is natural. Acknowledge and embrace your feelings, it’s what makes us HUMAN.
Many have asked HOW AM I? I am thankful to live and be in a country where I have access to healthcare, food and shelter. I am grateful for your kind words. I am taking this time to invest in happiness. “Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony”-Mahatma Gandhi.
