I love women. Ok, now I have your attention so I’ll say what I mean is that I am constantly in awe of the every day and extraordinary feats that women accomplish in life. Maybe they are incredibly smart entrepreneurs, or creative artists, or devoted moms. Often the women I meet are all of these things. This is why I’ve decided to start Girl Crush. It is the section of this blog where I brag on these ladies a little. I love to share things with people that I think will benefit their lives. The women that I feature in Girl Crush are just that-a benefit to mine and many others’ lives. You already read about how I love Jessica. Now, here is Girl Crush number two:
There are so many reasons to have a girl crush on Saya Barkdoll I’m pretty sure I couldn’t list them all here. I’ll give it my very best effort though, because the world needs to know about this remarkable woman.
I will start with her professional skills, because that’s easier to put into words. Saya is without a doubt the best message therapist I have ever encountered and believe me when I say massage therapy is a subject I like to research as much as possible. Saya is also a newly certified Doula. I only wish I could have had her with me when my babies were born. While I love her, you can be sure that I will stick with massages as the reason to see her but if you find yourself needing some delivery assistance, Saya is your girl.
I promise I am not just saying these things because she is my friend. Saya is truly fantastic at her craft and I think the reason is because she cares about it as a craft. Saya is a healer. She puts the therapy into massage therapy. Saya’s goal is to help her clients feel better after they leave her not only physically but emotionally as well. Saya is a tiny lady, but she does giant work with her Healing Hands.
I could stop there. This is certainly enough information about why it’s legit to have a Girl Crush. I mean who doesn’t love a good massage? But to merely touch on Saya’s professional strength would not do the Girl Crush justice. The true beauty of Ms. Barkdoll is that she is the kind of person you just want to be around. She is warm and friendly. You literally relax just by being in her presence. Saya has a way of taking the hits that life brings us and powering through to make the world as glorious as possible. The woman has literally overcome mountains and you would never know it because she carries herself with grace and emanates joy. I am inspired by her and so is everyone she meets. She is an unstoppable woman who is making the world a better place just by sharing herself with us.
Oh and the best part… she has a tattoo on her finger that turns into a moustache. If that’s not crush-worthy, I don’t know what is.
