Juho and Iri - I thought I was first on that list! It would be better for my ego to say that I got that way from karate and boxing but I have always had a short fuse and have been rather impatient. Usually it is MY perception that someone is not giving it their all. I have been known to say that I "despise quitters". It's funny though - the past year or so I got it! Don't ask me how. Maybe it was a divine revelation but something or someone whispered in my ears - "NOT EVERYONE IS LIKE YOU OR WANTS TO BE LIKE YOU".
Radical concept huh? So I now take the opportunity to embrace what is in front of me. It gives me an opportunity to experience aikido on more than just my little level.
