Re: New Year, New Day, Everyday

Thanks, Lynn. I think I needed to read this article. I'm getting ready for shodan and sometimes I think I know things that I really don't know yet. It's easy to get cocky as a 1st kyu senior student, because I do know more than most of the other students. My sensei once told me, "You have to stay open to grow, that means you let go of your attachment to being the one who knows, who's good at it, etc."

That sure isn't easy.
