Well, that was a nice response I received after finishing a Chair Chi session for an aged care centre today.
One elderly lady, who has limited English, and of an Italian background, applauded and shouted ‘Bravo, Bravo’.
It felt good to be able to help her feel energised, as well as the other residents who attended my session. I feel if I can make a small difference in their lives then it is well worth running these sessions.
The Chair Chi sessions I run for aged care centres and nursing homes have become very popular and I’m virtually booked out for the year as I’m very busy with those sessions, and the work I do for BJ Seminars International, which is a business I run with my colleague, Sue James.
I don’t mind being busy because the passion for Chair Chi work is definitely there and I also enjoy the variety of facilitation and training work in our shared business.
I suppose when you have a passion for your work then it doesn’t feel like work at all; it feels like fun and that’s not a bad way of occupying one’s time.
