All of my life, I knew what society expected of me. I was expected to get a good education, good paying job and get married to have couple of kids; then I would be deemed what society calls successful - of course I did. I was fresh out of high school and knew exactly what I wanted to be when I grew up; an accountant. I was good with numbers, very organized and knew, I would be able to get a good job. So, being who I'm, I attacked school and work, only to find that 10 years into a great desk job that I didn’t really feel like I was making a difference.
I mean, I did everything I was supposed to do. Why didn’t I feel successful in my career?
Here is where I and so many people went wrong. I allowed society to define my success for me. Now, I look at the millennial generation and I am so impressed by their nonchalant attitudes towards society’s approval. Even more so, I am impressed by their willingness to so daringly step out and try something new and different, after all, difference is the scariest form of change! I had to do a lot of soul searching, but in time I set out to embrace my inner Millennialist. I asked myself what do I love to do? Who do I want to be? How do I want people to feel when they spend time with me? Do I really want to be the bad new person at a small company or the stressed out tax time person?
At the end of the day, I wanted to be someone who made a real difference in another person’s daily life. I wanted to bring joy to people i encountered. As a woman, I personally understand how the pressures to be or look in a certain way can really affect your life. I wanted to be a person that'll helped uplift others, women in particular.
Women are the care givers of this world. It is in our nature to help others, however, care takers typically will give 100% of themselves to the betterment of someone or something else. But, who's taking care of all the caregivers? Who's helping them feel cared for and appreciated? I’ll tell you who, Me! It is my calling to help women look and feel beautiful. Ladies, we have to start putting ourselves first. If you see someone drowning, you cannot attempt to save them unless you have already learned to swim. So to all my care givers I say, “Take care of yourselves first so you can better take care of someone else”.
Let me reward you for all you do, with my 3 step holistic approach to skin care. First, I work to repair the damaged by strengthening the skin’s immune system and activating the skin’s own repair function to remodel the skin. Second, I work to replenish the depleted nutrients and circulation that the skin needs to maintain healthy immune and repair functions. Lastly, I work to reward and relax you as every facial treatment includes a facial massage that will knock you socks off. My goal is to leave your Skin Spa knowing that you are doing the best thing(s) for your skin and for you to feel pampered and powerful. Make your appointment today.
