Introducing Norabloom's Fabulous Massage Therapist, Jenny Chorba, she is our guest blogger of the week. Clap, Clap, Clap!
Change is the only thing constant. As I was driving early this morning I enjoyed the bright sun rising above the horizon, I noticed the change in the air. First of all I was dressed in jeans a sweater and my down vest but there are other subtle changes going on leading us from summer into fall. Have you noticed the days becoming shorter and the cooler nights and mornings leading into a warmer daytime, there are a few trees just starting to look like they may change, the students are back and the kids and teachers are getting ready to head back to school. I’m happy to live in a region that experiences the change of season. I must admit however that autumn is not my favorite time of year. I’m a spring and summer girl. Fall challenges my optimism. This seasonal change is a reminder that life in general is always shifting and moving. It reminds me to join the flow of things without resistance. When I can surrender to change and give up the fight I notice the small joys in it. My natural response to this summer to fall change is to wrinkle my eyebrows and feel cranky that old man winter filled with darkness and cold is on its way but when I practice letting go and joining the dance of change I start to appreciate even more the crisp mornings and the flowers outside and the green grass. So with fall upon us my shift begins with settling into a routine. Being in the massage business I get to witness people go through this as well. Clients that I would see weekly in the winter and spring started coming less in the summer and now have recently started back up their regular self-care routine which for them includes massage. I too have set up my bi-weekly massage appointments to support me emotionally, physically and mentally during this transition of change. I’m learning bit by bit how to take care of myself, how to support my well-being and from past years’ experience I know that although autumn is a beautiful time of year it’s a challenge for me to let go of care free hot weather summer. This fall I know that self-care is my top priority and it will include massage, exercise, cooking lots of veggies and taking time out of my busy schedule to notice the beauty of the changing season.
