I laughed until I remembered that probably my patience looks to my shihan like this student's looks to me.
Yes agreed. I know how my almost 15 years must look to my Sensei with his over 50 years of training. He probably sighs, shakes his head, and hopes I'll get it someday. But not today.
Patience is about progress and perspective (or just enjoying the activity). Its not about how soon but about how good.
Thanks for reading and responding.
