I am taking a break from my usla rambings on about my strugle and trifuns throw aikido. I like to take a mint to share a insite I had last night as the moon drifeted in the sky and the clock tick on, but no sleep came.
The dojo has a almost majical mist that darw me back, even if I do not think I want to be there. I have had a few times when my day has just not gone as planed I toy with the idea of not going to class, some gut felling takes over and I find my body there in the oh so familyer place. I sometimes have to find a few mint to find my brin it dose not alway come for the ride. Inevtable I pratice and I end up feeling better and more connceted. I may not always feel conected to the other people but in general. I don't know what it it is but the dojo or mabby we give up a part of us to the unvers to the dojo so it can give it back. mabby I am more connceted to the people then I like to amite( I am scared the dont like me, and not sure they relly want to conncet to me).
Just a thought pattern I thought I would share....
I have been sorra conplying in my last few blogs, for this I applogiz. I also owe a thankyou to thowse whom have offered there take on my sistiouations and shared info. I am not always good at rembering to show my thanks to people, thow I owe it to so many.
On, that note, I have a socal issuse , I have truble in general with knowing when to say goodby and when to just leacve , because others are bussy. If it were up to me I would always say by , but if there talking there is no real way to do so with out intupting. Likwise , you are to bow to your partners after class. While I would like to try to do this, I have onstly forgtoton to sometimes ( too tryered) and gottoen scooled. However, some of the people are freinds and also enjoy talking about diffent teques and I do not want to intrupt so , I offen do not say tankyou to them. I would like to know is what should I do? Say thankyou and intrupt or just not? Oh, and I can't watie becaue I have to go offen , and we have to clean the mats up.
