Re: I think I'm done with Aikido

Lynn Seiser, your wisdom is great. Many should take to their heart what you said.

Two years is plenty of time to change.
Aikido will still be there, regardless if any one of us decide to leave or stay.

Anon, do what YOU feel is correct.
You are not alone.
I have many times had my foot half out the door.
And I have been doing Aikido for a whole lot of years longer than you.
Its not aikido that will give you the answers, its within yourself. That was my realisation.
Aikido or what ever you do is a tool or a path. Use it. Discard it, just don't stop growing.

Sad to see you go from aikido, but I hope you find more answers while doing what ever you finally settle upon.
Hay - it might be that you will return to aikido one day.
