Recap: If you have been flowing my previous blogs, you know that I had an oprtunity to move to a new location to countune my aikido. You also know that there seemed to be , or form my prespective a dark cloud lingering over me or them. I was even tempted to qutie.
Present day: I had a kinda long day, but all went well for me. I had the starn of inverwing for a job, my frist real job, not gotton by knowing someone, that is if they hire me. I felt aprhensive, but also felt excited. At any rate aside from a mild upset stomic, after dinner, I was looking forward tonight, but with a air of aprhanstion. after the way I felt Monday , felt like that concotion, hipnoic felling was only a fase and it had passed. I was not sure what was instore for me now, and I was not sure I like where it was going. However, as some people on here pointed out and some othere people told me, the group as whole was probly just as or at least somewhat aphaesive being in a new place. Latter I also realsied that I was aphasive adn secared and I had blocked them as mouch or more then they me. So , if I wanted to change this was going to have to be the one to start. After all in Aikido or life you can realy only control you, right? So, today after resting and rethinking and then just accepting that they were in much the same bout as me, I almost was looking forward to tonight. Thow in the past Ihave had some truble with this sissay, or at lest his teaching approch. That I recon I have not let go of that fear. Any rate, I went. I foond from the moment I walked in to the dojo that I was much more welcome feeling thow there was still that arir of discontaent ment. I was able to find it was not with me presay, ast lest not mostly. The sisay was actuly really helpfull. He worked alot on basic tecnies, partly becaue we have someone whom has only dopne akido one night before. Here is an intesting way to teach someone to role..... frist test for the unbendable arm....place arms out like a holding a basket ball, then have someone push one there arms and on there chest to see if they move ither. Then you have them neal down on the gorund and place there hands so that the btom one was like a nife on the goround. Next, push there arm gently forward till they lose there blance and are forced to go over there arm. I thought that was good way to explan it to a beginer. I think I got it all right. I also lurned I have alot of spical issues. I knew this before , but I lurning that I almost can nto see how close something is, which is scarey when you think aobut it. I am hoping that Aikido will help me in this, or at lst let me know I have it right? I also pristpaed in Rondory. I force when they all sorned me, I knwo I do this in corwds too, sometimes, I need to work on that. I image that wone would be good to work on for aikido and for life. the world is not geeting less populated. lol I also lurned that I need to worlk on timeing I was trying to figure out how to jump in and not get my feet steeepd on at the same time. well , so, you guys were right it was just everyones firest day. I need work on not feedking out when I think something is worng and steeping back and lookign at the whole picture. so, another day in my world of Akido and what not.
Future: I make a pact here to all of you that I am going to find at lesat 2 good reasons that I go every class. Also, lurning and will countue to lurn that my own growth is not able to be conpared to others for I am nto others, nowoen is the same and besides aimrica is bult becaue we wanted to allow for induviudle or we would just make ropbots. Right? So,you guys can remind me that the pact I made, incase I start not doing it, if you like.
As aloways commonts are welcome, I post here to get feed back and if my blog helps you thats or offers a sorce of intament , thats greet too. My ego would like tok knwo it thow. However, thanks to all you sicret vewoeres as well as thowse I knwo read my stuff.
