In General The 'spring clips' of our lives Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #12 New 09-17-2010 09:18 AM
I had the clutch changed on my car this week, and it reminded me of an incident that happened about a year and a half ago.
On my way home from work a spring clip snapped on my clutch cable.
As it happened I was just crawling through traffic and was able to drift to the side of the road.
But what if that had happened on a busy motorway, whilst overtaking with my family in the car?
The consequences could have been really nasty.

All for the sake of a small steel spring clip washer.

Our lives are precious, fragile and temporary.

Please treasure your time in the dojo with your friends,
Cherish your loved ones and family.

You never know when the next ‘spring clip' will snap.

In General The Kindness of others Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Everyday we work hard to achieve goals and improve our lives, but sometimes it's the kindness of others that help make our lives what they are.
Unfortunately these actions and gestures are often overlooked or taken for granted.

At the end of Aikido class it feels right to give thanks, even though it's in Japanese and awkward to say, I want to say thank you, and show that I appreciate his experience and patience, to thank my teacher for his instruction and giving up his time for us.

Without the kindness of our instructors spending their time correcting our faults, we wouldn't get very far, and for many of us, our lives would be very different from what they are today.
Maybe it's not ‘cool' to say thanks, maybe the ‘customer' attitude is such that we think paying the hall costs is thanks enough.

Without the kindness of our parents, families and friends many of our happy memories wouldn't exist, how many times do we say thank you?

A true heart felt thank you, should feel right and be gratifying to both parties.

A kind word can warm the heart for 3 winters'
