Going for a vacation

Hello again everyone. It’s been a while again since i last wrote here. As you all know i was sick for a week and got a bit behind on work. But know i am back on track and it feels amazing. I have actually been planing a trip also, so it was very important for me to fix the schedule so that everything is on time again. I have been playing some poker lately but not much, and i came across a bit of a bigger win. So i am planning on going to Hawaii with my daughters.

Hawaii has always been a dream for them to travel to and especially to swim with dolphins. So i am using the money i won to plan the trip of their dreams. I am also looking forward to it so i can relax for a week and knowing that i have it planned. Not like when i was sick and everything got messed up. I am hoping that we will be able to go there over the winter holidays, but you can never be sure.

So this morning i have been doing mostly administration work so that everyone who needs a therapy session gets one before the holidays. Usually i am closed during the holidays but if someone really needed a session i have been seeing some of my customers in the days between Christmas eve and new years eve. But now they will have to get one session before and one after new years eve. So as you can tell I have a few pieces to put together so that everything works. It’s a month until Christmas so probably i will be able to do it.

Otherwise there haven’t been so much other stuff happening. I would like you to help me, if you have some tips of what you should visit and do on Hawaii, places to stay, anything! Please contact me, I would like to make this trip as good as i can. We haven’t been traveling so much in our family so now when we are going I really want it to be a great experience for everyone.

I have been going through some FAQ on the website gohawaii.com to learn some basics and so far i have learned that the major airport is the Honolulu International Airport (HNL) on Oahu. Therefor I have been looking for tickets to this airport, if it is the biggest it probably has the most flights connected to it so that was part one. According to GoHawaii most major domestic carriers and many international carriers serve Oahu, so i will probably find some good ones i believe.

I also learned that through November to February is the big surfing season on Hawaii so I am thinking that we should learn how to surf while we are there. I couldn’t actually think of a better way to spend Christmas. And it feels good that now that is my year to have my daughters, that I can take them to Hawaii. That was all for today!

Update!

Hello again, it has been a while since i wrote here. But you all know that i caught a real man cold and it actually had me home for the entire week. So last week i had to make some extra time for some of my clients who really needed one of my sessions. I was sick between Wednesday to Sunday and I really had a hard time. As i wrote before in my other post I become really restless when i am sick and i think it is really hard to be home and don’t do anything. But i managed this time also. I am not usually sick so much, but when it happens i often get really really sick for days. And that was what happened this time also. Therefore I haven’t really had the time to post on my blog since I have spent more hours in the office than usual.

But i will give you a few tips on what i did to survive my almost week inside haha! On Wednesday i didn’t do much actually. I was so tired that i only watched a movie and slept for the entire day. But often you easier get healthy if you listen to your body and don’t do a lot of stuff just to do it.

The second day was Thursday, and i was still feeling bad. And that day I did something I haven’t done i while. I played poker all night. Yes I know that shouldn’t have done that, and that it might seem weird since i told you all about my problem with it. But I actually had some really old fashion fun when i was gambling this time. I visited a site that was new for me, called casinoomega.com and it was really nice! Im not gonna write so much about this but it certainly had some casinos that i hadn’t heard about earlier. So i spent a few hours gambling and then went back to Wednesday mood and watched a movie and slept.

On Friday I was feeling much better so i decided to take a walk and get some fresh air. And i will tell you that really was something! I felt so much better after that and went home for a nice breakfast and a cup of tea. It was so good to be able to eat for the first time, well i have eaten of course but something else than soup and food like that. To eat crispy bread again with cheese and ham on was amazing.

Saturday and Sunday was even better so i could go in to town. It was so nice to see people again and to get some nice salad. I met my daughters for a lunch and we had a great time. On Sunday i mostly had to fix everything for the coming week and schedule all the clients that wanted to have a session as soon as possible.

So as you can see i didn’t do much for that week, but hey, you need those days also. And now i am healthier than ever and happy again!

not the best day for me

Good day everyone.

I hope you are having a better day than me. I have catched a real cold, a real man cold if you know what i mean. So i have not been able to work today, and probably won’t do that for the rest of the week either. So I had to start the day with calling my receptionist and ask her to cancel all the customers for the day. So everyone who was up for a laser session had to be cancelled since I could not make it. Otherwise some of my other employees can do the first meetings where people only wants to now more about laser therapy and perhaps book a session. So from this day and for the rest of the week I have cancelled all sessions. Of course i might be able to do it later in the week but I think that it is best for the customers also that i am completely healthy when I do the sessions with them.

So i asked my receptionist to call all the first meetings that are scheduled for next week and se if they would like to do it already this week, so that i could fit in some extra sessions next week since i can not make it now. Otherwise they will have to wait for a couple of weeks and that is not good for either me or the customer. So hopefully they will call me later today and have a new schedule for me.

Now i need some help from you guys. What am i gonna do when i am home and sick? I just do not know what to do. Today i went out of bed and had some breakfast. It took so long for me to make it today, i had no energy left. But i ate some greek yoghurt with berries and a cup of coffee. But my throat is bit sore so i think i will drink some tea instead during the day. One of my colleagues came over with some hot soup for me to eat for lunch and cough drop pills. But now when Christoffer has left I do not know what to do.

I have my computer that i can work some from which i have been doing this morning. Writing on the Facebook page that there is no sessions this week and trying to reach out to my customers so that they will know what is going on. But now i will have to do something else. I think that i will start by watching a movie but i have a hard time to just lay down and do nothing while I am sick. I always want to be active so to be sick is something that is really testing my patience. – 469

So now i will try to watch a movie and drink a hot cup of tea to make my throat feel a bit better. At least i have spent some time by writing this post now haha!

A story from way back

Hello everyone!
I have decided to tell you guys why me and my wife got a divorce. When i have read my own blog I came to think that it is only happy posts in it so i have now decided to also have a post about something that isn’t that great. Today i don’t feel so bad about us breaking up, of course if everything worked between us we would still be a couple but there is not a happy ending for all couples out there. The biggest mistake I made all those years ago was actually that i lied to my wife. A lot of times i have asked myself if we would still be a couple if i hadn’t lied to her, and perhaps we would. That is something that I will never now so I have moved on from that.

Okay, back to the thing. I started lying to my wife because i got sort of a gambling addiction. I didn’t loose all our money or something like that. I didn’t loose anything at all actually. I started playing on online casinos when i still had the video shop. I did it a lot to kill some time and when you started winning it was really fun. But i did it behind her back and i never told my wife that i spent so much time gambling. And when she found out she was devastated. She was really scared that i would loose all our savings when i actually had put a lot of money form my gambling in to the savings. We started fighting over this and it just kept on going. She wouldn’t accept it while i meant that it gave us a lot of money. So in the end we decided to split up since we couldn’t get pass that point where we fought over anything.

I still gamble today, even though it didn’t work out that great last time. The gambling is something precious to me since it allowed me to open up my laser therapy reception. I know it is bad to do it, but i have realized that it wasn’t the gambling itself that was the problem. It was that i lied about it for so long and that we no longer had any trust in the relationship. So for a future relationship i have promised myself to tell the truth from the beginning.

I know it sound a bit depressing but everything is fine now. And i thought that i would end this post with my favorite site right now. The latest trend in online casinos is free spins and a couple of weeks ago i found a new one. It is called freespins365.co.uk and almost everyday you can find a new offer on a site that has a free spins offer. So if you like me like to gamble, check that site out! I don’t want you to think that this issomething that i do daily. It is more of a hobby, and i never do it when i have my kids. I don’t steel time from other things to play, i pay when i have some time over and feel like a want to play. Hope you don’t get a bad impression of me now!

Forgot to tell you about the interview!

Hello everybody, i forgot to tell you about the interview that i participated in last week. When i wrote my blogpost i was a bit stressed since my daughters came and i wanted to spend as much time as i could with them. Well i told you that it was an interview for a local radio station. And the interview was about my clinic and how it was to start over.

The local radio is doing a show where they asked different companies in the city if they wanted to tell all about how the company started and what your goals are. I of course wanted to be a part of this show and get some extra commercial for my company for free. I think it is really important to take every opportunity to spread the word about laser therapy and that my clinic is available for people who think they would feel better with laser therapy or just want to try it out.

So the reporter came to my office last Friday and she had like microphones and other equipment with her so that she would get a great sound. First we sat down and she asked me a few basic questions that all the participants would get.

  • What’s your name?
  • When did you start your company?
  • Why did you start your company?
  • What are your goals for the future?

After i have answered all the questions she was with me for an hour so that she would get some sounds from the waiting room and also if a client would say yes to be a part of the show. One of my clients who has been with me for a couple of years always comes on Fridays so i had already asked her before if she wanted to help me with this. She said yes and therefore the reporter could ask her a few questions and she also got to be in the room when we had the therapy hour. The interview and show isn’t about whether laser therapy is good or not, so i don’t have to worry about what the show will be like. The reporter was very professional and only interested in the company it self and how it started. As soon as it has been aired i promise i will put a link up here on the blog so that you will get the chance to listen to it.

Hopefully i will be satisfied with the outcome and don’t have to be embarrassed on how i sound. Then you will not get to listen to it! Haha! Only kidding you will get to hear it anyway. Well that was kind of it today. I will have to work a little bit later tonight since i am using my time now to write on my blog. But that is something you can do when you are your own boss!

Now back to work, hoping you will have a great day today!

I just love james bond! Don’t you?

Great day today!

Hello and welcome back all of you who are reading my blog. Today was a really good day for me. I started as usual with some working hours at my job at the clinic. I also participated in an interview with a local reporter from a radio station. But let’s start from the beginning.

A day in Marcus’s life

07.00am
The bell rings and it is time for me to go up for a new day. For breakfast i always drink a large cup of coffee, and i always make enough to take some with me in my thermos mug. As you can tell already i drink a lot of coffee. I eat two slices of crisp bread with cheese and ham, one boiled egg and a bowl of quark and granola. To start of the day with a big meal is something i have to do gain energy for the entire day.

08.00am
I go to my car and off to work it is!

08.30am
We are now at my office and ready to start the day. The first half hour i only do more of administration work, i check which patients i am going to have for the day and make sure that everything is alright.

09.00am
It is time time for my first patients to meet me. Sometimes it is a regular and if it so we have a session. Otherwise it could be someone who are interested in what laser therapy is and if it works for their problem, and then we have a first meeting instead where we discuss for an hour what the patient wants and if i even can help the person.

10.00am
Coffee break! With my beloved colleagues. Since it was Friday today we also had some nice muffins from our closest bakery. We get a special order every Friday and we then sit down together for about 20 minutes to chat and have a nice time.

10.15am
After our little coffee break i have another couple of meetings with patients until it is lunch break.

12.00pm
It is time for lunch! If i haven’t got any food with me i usually go to a nice restaurant just down the street. They have very nice food there, it is always healthy and it feels so fresh to eat there. I have a rule in the office and that is that i have banned fast food. Yes. If you want to eat you have to do it at the fast food restaurant, you can take it with you. It is a way to keep the atmosphere more healthy at the office. And nobody has been complaining so far. And the people who ate a lot of fast food before now says that they have gained so much energy of real food instead.

01pm
My last hours are spent with both patients and doing some administration work again. Before it is time to go home for the weekend!

5.00pm
My two daughters came home since it my week with them. So for me it has been a really good day and when they now have come home to me it couldn’t be better.

So now it is time for me to eat som dinner with my daughters and then have a family weekend.
Hoping you will have a grea weekend!

My second blogpost!

Today i thought that i would give you a little longer presentation about myself. As you already know my name is Marcus. I am 47 years old this year and I have two beautiful children. Unfortunately i am divorced and have been for seven long years now. Me and my wife decided to break up since it really didn’t work between us. It was mostly my fault and i thought i would tell why, but more about that in a later blogpost. Now i want to focus on the good things in life. I have two daughters, they are thirteen and fifteen years old now. Time goes by so fast!

They live here every other week and the other time with their mother. We don’t live that far away from each other so it often goes quite smoothly. And i always now that they always are only a bus ride away, which is very comforting. I work as a laser therapist also but i’m not going to talk that much about that today. Before i started working with that i owned my own video shop where you could rent movies. It was at the store where i met Alison, the mother of my daughters. She came in one day and had forgotten to return her movie. She was so beautiful so I decided to ignore the fee for this time and let her go without paying.

Movie storeThe next day she came in again and said thanks and after that we were a couple for almost fifteen years. When i was younger I was a real nerd when it came to movies and gaming. Which later got me into some trouble, but let’s stay to the positive side.

I started working at the movie renting place when i was twenty years old, and when i was twenty five i got to take over the store and become the manager. It was so exciting since i really loved movies and to play video games. Something that became less important as soon as me and Alison started dating. And when we moved in together it disappeared even more in my life.

After a few years I chose to sell the store and give it up. It was a perfect decision then since we were about to have our first child; Tina. We were both home when she was born and I then got a job at an IT company when i worked with support. It wasn’t really something that was fun but we needed the money. Two years after Tina was born we got little Juliet also. We were happy in a few years after I started with a new hobby and me and Alison started to fight more often.

So we got a divorce seven years ago and here am I now! Started my training to become a laser therapist for four years ago and now I have my own business and clients. Me and Alison are friends again but we now that we never would be the same again. So we have both moved on but with a great relationship to each other. Well that was about it! Hope you will stay and read my blog!

Welcome!

Hello!
This is my first post here at my blog Walt. I have never had a blog before so this will be a completely new experience for me. As you might have read in the About section my name i Marcus Anderson and I am a laser therapist. It is not always what i have been working with, i actually just came across this form of therapy when i myself had an injury. I had some severe pain in my neck after to many hours in front if my computer and it seemed like nothing would help me get better.

But after searching online i found out about laser therapy. I admit it, I was a bit skeptical in the beginning, but after a few times I actually felt a huge different in my neck. I was no longer stiff and could move my head in every directions again. And that’s when my interest to make laser therapy known started. I am very engaged in making this happen. I don’t like that most people walk around with pain in their body, and often you only get a prescription on pain killers. I didn’t think that the pain killers helped me, and i definitely didn’t enjoy to put that many different pills in my body at the same time. So i started to look for a different kind of medical treatment that wouldn’t hurt the rest of my body while i was trying to get better. Let me explain what I mean with this. While your consuming pain killers your body gets more and more used to it and it can actually affect your body negatively also. When the body gets more used to it it could mean that the next time you take a pill, it will have gotten so used to this kind of medication that it will not have any affect. So i have been trying not to use any medication when it’s not necessary.

With laser therapy there are no side effects but you could get irritated, anxiety and flushing occurring in the area where you have been treated. I thought that it was worth trying since i didn’t want to keep putting pills in my body without noticing any change. I do believe that there could be some people out there who has gotten side effects of laser therapy, but the only experience I have from it is with people who has used it in a way where they want to change their appearance. So since i only have experience of using it to prevent people from severe pain i can only recommend it in that way.

I understand if you, like me, are skeptical to this kind of treatment. But if you don’t need any treatment you don’t have to like laser therapy. You could simply just follow me on my blog and read about my everyday life, because i am not planning to only wright about laser therapy. I am going to write about me, my life, my family, a common day at work and much more!
