1-What made you think you'd learn it in aikido?
I've just typed out 3 or 4 answers to this question and none of them seemed right. I'm sorry I can't give a good reason. It just felt
2-What did you want to learn?
I had a list a mile long when I started. It's started to narrow a bit, I feel as if I'm starting to focus slowly. Now I think the number one thing I would like to learn is tolerance and understanding. Right now I tend to be very critical and unbending. I don't know how aikido will teach me what I want, but again it just feels right.
So far, that I have a loooooooooong way to go before claiming to know anything.
I'm not sure if I truly learned anything yet. I suppose if anything I'm learning by trying to be more open and listen more.
Thank you very much for asking Don, I hadn't thought of 1,3 or 4 before. I appreciate the mental 'wake up' slap.
