I just massaged a lady who received a gift card for said massage from friends for her birthday.
We got to chatting a bit and I mentioned that I was hoping to go to nursing school this fall, but that I planned on continuing practicing massage.
She responded, "I hope you do, because you'd be doing a great disservice to humanity if you ever stopped doing massage."
That warmed me down to my toes!
Everybody needs an ego boost once in awhile.
