Indeed- Aikido, besides being a hobby, sport, way of life, philosophy, etc, is just FUN! I love going to class, if I didn't I probably would cease my training.
Back on subject-
I feel I will have defeated myself when I stop fighting against my own feelings. I can keep harmony outside of myself, but inside, I'm a compulsive worrier. I worry about all kinds of things, most of which never happen. Going along with Jun's observation, I seem to put all that behind me when I train. So it seems I win over the problems inside myself that occur outside the dojo when I go in. I worry, as a budoka should, about the here and now.
Now if only I could better harmonize myself with matters outside of the dojo. I figure I'll have that accomplished in maybe 70 or 80 years- if I'm lucky
Have fun everyone.
