episode 20 being a professional
dear julia rose, inspiring, courageous, open heart communication, role model for all who work in the healing world. reminds me of one time i was giving a presentation at a school. i had made a mistake, i chose the wrong shoes. i had bunions at the time which were extremely painful. i was gritting my teeth to not cry out in pain. my little perfectionist part of me did not want anyone to know i had made a mistake. the dialogue in my head was so stressful, finally too stressful to contain, truth flirted out of my mouth for all to hear...after sharing my need to take off my shoes i felt the tears well up in my heart while the wise part of me hugged me from within hoping no one would reject my need.
most of the people laughed. when i was done one woman came up to me and said “that was not very professional”. i took a deep breath and said “we must have had different teachers.”. 38 years later i usually work shoeless. and the words “i had different teachers” is a big part of my work. i love your trauma camp work julia rose ...please continue to be messy.
