Totally felt out of the groove tonight, missed a class last week because of my cyst acting up. Really wishing it would stop messing with my training. I started to get in the groove towards the end of class.
Set a new goal for myself too.
- Attempt to understand one part of movement every night, and attempt to feel each technique.
I figured if I could understand how one part of each technique works and feel it, I'll be able to understand it. Understanding is the first step to learning. I've come to love the Ki test and techniques. They are very relaxing, and more challenging than the techniques themselves. But that's just a personal opinion.
Tonight was my first night back since the rupturing of the cyst on my right ovary, which happened 2 weeks ago. This is only my third class, and I totally remember why I've been missing my classes. I felt a little out of sorts tonight, trying to get back in the groove. I feel like I missed so much since I haven't been there.
I've just got this feeling that Aikido is going to be something major in my life, and I really hope so. I need something in my life, and I'm not sure what it is.. but I think Aikido is going to help me realize what it is and obtain it.
I've titled my blog Enlightenment Experiences, because .. that's what this blog is going to be about. My enlightenment through Aikido. And right now, I have beginner's excitement. So, I hope I can maintain that outlook through my journey.
