I couldn't be more excited.
As a massage therapist I have the most incredible career. Day after day I make people feel happy, healthy, better, special. Service to others is my call in life and it's just taken me a bit of time and soul searching to confirm that the best way for me to do that is by continuing in the spa industry. By the end of the year I'll be an esthetician as well, making me more useful and marketable. I'm single, no kids, no mortgage (the ex got that in the divorce!). I need to spread my little wings and fly. Why not work in paradise for awhile? Or forever? Shoot, who knows what the future holds?
So, I have booked a trip to the BVI for October 14-21 to scout out the islands, see where I'd want to live, and hopefully interview with a number of spas. My esthetic schooling will be done at the end of December, my 30th birthday is February 24th and I'd like to be with my family for that, and my lease is up as of March. My plan is to let places know that I'm available as of March 1st. Really, that's 8.5 months away. Not a lot of time to plan and execute a move to a foreign country, let alone a little island.
Today I sent out my resume to:
I'm still researching and figuring out where else to contact. It seems so far in the future but in reality it isn't. My October trip is less than 5 months out, and hopefully my move will be only a few months after that. Crazy, crazy stuff.
