Didn't make it to Iaido AGAIN this weekend have nothing to blame it on other than my own inability to utilise my time.
101 thing to do this weekend and 99 of them still to go.
I don't think there are any Aikido class' in the town I'm moving to so I will be a Martial arts commuter. Plus I like the people in my class...
I have learnt all sorts of things about my family recently that go a long way to explaining my, at times gut wrenching, belief in my own crapness at EVERYTHING!!!!11111onety!!11!! but it's still hard to fight my way past it.
Doing Martial Arts is a dream I've always had but sometimes when I land with a sickening thud and especially when I am the ONLY person in a class (white belts included) without the confidence to breakfall over someone it's hard to be all smiley-happy-people about my abilities...
bleah! Am I whinging again? sorry about that.
Sunny positivity and self esteem are not natural parts of my personality, they are merely imported on an irregular basis from foreign climes.
My inner Invincible-Sword-Goddess needs a kick up the arse!
