As of June 8th I will have been practicing Aikido for one year....wow, time kind of flys by doesn't it? I still haven't tested yet....which I find kind of weird, but it doesn't bother me...My Sensei isn't very test crazy, which I've heard from some can be a good thing. I mean, I have made progress in this year every now and then, I've had at least 2 mini enlightenments......one when I trained with Ikeda Sensei.......All in all I am very much still in love with Aikido, and I am looking forward to returning to Chicago Aikikai in November to train with Saotome Sensei.......I can't wait to see what I can learn!!!

Congrats and keep studying, you will only learn to love it more as the years go by!!!!! It is a life long journey and I don't think that even the great masters (Shihans) are done learning yet!!!

Many great marriages begin with wonderful love affairs. Overtime, the love remains if we continue to give to the relationship and we learn to express even more of ourselves as we discover it. Congratulations! I wish you both many happy years together.

The first year is actually the first hardest year. Keep going.

I also have been with Aikido for about a year. It has really challenged me: both physically and mentally. Learning, as a grown adult, how to "move" and "breathe" all over again has been quite challenging!
I wouldn't give it up for anything! Keep at it...fellow newbie!
