Blessed

As some of you know, I only started my journey as an entrepreneur at the beginning of this year. Here is a bit of history. I returned to work when my son was around 3 months old in the Cayman islands where I had a great flexible schedule of working from 7:30am -3:30pm. The amazing company I worked for allowed me all I needed to be a working mother but due to circumstances that were out of my control, we left the island and moved to Orlando, Fl. Working as a therapist in a residential recovery center, I didn’t expect the level of flexibility I had in the Cayman islands but I was burned out after a few months as I struggled to leave home at 6:45 am and return home at the earliest at 7:30 pm and a lot of the times it was after 9 pm. My husband was exhausted as he works full time and also took care of our son before and after work. Our son was exhausted as he was in daycare from 8am -630pm everyday. We were disconnected as a family and just simply burned out.

It took several months of job searching and self exploration to finally acknowledge that if I wanted the balance I was seeking, I needed to make it happen.  This is when Psycnomad really came to life.  I have turned down job offers since I started my business and have stopped looking for anything else for my career.  I have made some amazing connections and gained beautiful support from circle of women and men who are always available to lend a voice or hand.

These days, I am so grateful to have my own business and the balance to stay at home with my two year old son. Every day is a balancing act to make sure I am giving my son and my business the quality time they both need to grow.

Its not easy, but when I get feedback like this for the work I’ve done with my clients, it makes everything worthwhile!!! This is some of the feedback I received from my very first Anger Project, which took place last month.

NOTE: I got a lot of lovely kisses with my feedback 🙂

“I’m feeling great! Lighter still 😘”

“Almost like I know what to do now if I feel anger or another emotion stuck…”

“I am doing fabulous. Realized that now not only do I have permission to be angry but I have permission to be happy. Didn’t even realize that was missing. Thank you all! 😘”

“I felt super happy for the few days that followed our workshop. Guess letting all that go let me bring more happy in!! 😘”

“I love my painting! I definitely feel connected to it and my outward expression of the anger I had held. I don’t care if anyone else likes it, it holds meaning for me and for that I am grateful.”

“I feel renewed and happy. Thank you, Thinn Aung, for creating a safe place for us to share and express ourselves.”

If you are interested in the upcoming Anger Project on June 25, please email me on psycnomad@gmail.com.
