garbage in, garbage out
Referring to the post above, I think Aikido actually has helped with my chaotic traffic light behavior as well. I never had too much of a problem with the yellow light hesitate-or-take-'em-off-the-dribble thing, but this serves as a great example. When I started Aikido, I also began a time of self-discovery, reading and metitating in parks, archaelogical sites, and what-not. Being able to bring a clear mind into the dojo (good stuff in) I feel helps me walk out of the dojo with (better stuff out). Sometimes leaving the dojo I actually feel like I'm walking on air (of course part of that is the cigarette I light up hahaha.) No, but seriously, Aikido is medicine for my brain, and it trains to refrain from pain and keeps me sane let the moon wax and wane. OK I'll stop!!
