Dr. Martha’s Monday Morning Motivational
“Caught the Wave and Got My Spizz On”
This weekend as a team, my staff and I, attended The Wave at Life West College. It was a fantastic weekend of spizz, being dipped in chiropractic philosophy and love. At The Wave we had the pleasure of attending the inauguration of Dr. Brian Kelly. Chiropractic is truly blessed to have such a true visionary at the helm. When I heard that Dr. Gerry Clum was stepping down as president of Life West College, sadness fell on my heart. Since the first time I heard Gerry speak I was a huge fan and supporter of his. His love for chiropractors and the profession was refreshing and combining that with his desire to raise up principled chiropractors made me know that because of him the future of chiropractic would be strong. Hearing Brian’s heart this weekend put to rest any worries that Gerry’s vision would die as he passed the presidential torch. After this weekend there is no doubt in my mind that Life West will be producing principled chiropractors, chiropractors that will guard our sacred trust.
Dr. Kelly’s vision does not stop with students but rather encompasses a better understanding and appreciation of chiropractic and chiropractors throughout the world. Summed up, he wants to create the necessary wave in chiropractic to create a shift in chiropractic and chiropractors. This past weekend at “The Wave” was a perfect example of his desire to inspire, lift up, and educate chiropractors! He provided a weekend centered around philosophy and abounding in “Tic Talk” from some of the profession’s most inspiring and ““spizzed”” out chiropractors!
“The Wave” is a must attend for next year! Personally, my staff and I had an amazing well-rounded weekend! Dr. Kelley, the talented Tina Carter, and the rest of the amazing staff at Life West Chiropractic College put on a wonderful chiropracTIC seminar! There was the perfect balance between education and fun and even included the historical moment of Dr. Kelly’s inauguration and ended with a luau! The entire weekend was abundant in chiropractic spizzerinctum! All-in-all the first Wave was a huge success and created quite the wave in chiropractic!
As chiropractors it is so important that we get dipped in chiropractic and get “spizzed”! As chiropractors, we give and give, sharing our love of chiropractic with the world and getting re-fueled is important! Just like a motor vehicle, chiropractors needs re-fueled to optimally function! Seminars are great re-fueling stations to get submerged in spizzerinctum! Spizzerinctum is a word made popular by BJ Palmer in the 1910s and 1920s and used to define chiropractic enthusiasm or excitement about chiropractic! From spizzerinctum is where we get the term ““spizzed””!
“The Wave” is one of many great seminars where you can get spizzzed! Another favorite of mine is “The California Jam” aka CalJam put on by Dr. Billy DeMoss and the Dead Chiropractic Society! I have also heard wonderful things about New Beginnings and am hoping to attend my first New Beginnings this year in October! EPOCs, COREs, DCS, Band of Brothers, 33 DCs, and other philosophy groups are also great venues to get dipped in TIC and to be immersed in spizzerinctum! Wherever you decide to go, GO! Just get re-fueled, get “spizzed”!
Love. Laugh. Adjust.
