Plus ca change.......
After 2 excellent sessions I am wondering what I was making a fuss about. I also found myself in the reverse position, biting my tongue at a gaffe someone else made, thus hopefully avoiding "twit" status!
I am concentrating on my
aikido, what I need to work on and not what people think of me. Tonight I "got" a technique I had had trouble with for ages. Funny huh?
As my wonderful aikido friend Sylvie once said to me "Be kind to yourself on your aikido journey". I have to adapt. Dinosaurs didn't. Look what happened to them!
Thanks for the great advice and solidarity. I have so much to learn.
