Breaking it in

After four years of studying and learning technique you would think that we’d be ready for that first client. But much like breaking in a new pair of shoes, it can make walking difficult, rather uncomfortable, and we can’t wait to take them off.  Somehow the brand new pair doesn’t help you enjoy the journey. 

Breaking into the role is everything but comfortable. If anything, we learn how to be more like water - always going with the flow, keeping up with the current, and finding a way around each obstacle. Suddenly everything we learn about structure goes flying out the window, and our plans swiftly change course. 

Much like a new couch, time turns us from stiff and formal to casual and comfortable. This is my story.
