Re: Top Ten Reasons you STAY with Aikido

Even though I've started very recently, I've realized the calming effect that it has.

To make a long story short, it's been a horrible week. I had food poisoning on Tuesday, and I had my first car accident yesterday. I was incredibly shaken, but I went to class. When I was off the mat and changing back into street clothes, I realized that my hands weren't shaking anymore.

And the people are great! I'm still working on breaking the ice (I'm incredibly shy), I'm realizing what circle I'm getting myself into. And for one of the first few times in my life, I feel like I belong.
