Monday night I visited my dojo for the first time in about 5 mos. I walked into what should have been familiar surroundings and was completely overwhelmed. The dojo had expanded, the class was huge, there were many new faces that I didn't recognize. I immediately felt like a stranger. That is until I heard my Sensei's voice from across the the dojo announce "The Prodigal daughter has returned!" and immediately was wrapped back into the warmth of my dojo family again. I came back to ask if I could continue lessons with him, I felt humbled and embarrassed when my old friends just smiled at me and welcomed me back.

Why did I leave? I don't know. Life got busy, family got demanding, I got frustrated, I got depressed, I hid from everyone.

So tonight I start my journey of learning again, hopefully with the intensity and peace that eluded me before.

As Mikey reminded me on Monday night:

"Clear Your Mind"
