Nope, no Aikido related resolutions.

Out of curiosity, anyone mind sharing their Aikido-resolutions?

To keep showing up.
To relax, breathe, and enjoy each other.
To get my circles smaller and more internal.

Personally I like Jun's description (in his article about his shodan test), where he picks a trait to concentrate on each year.

Inspired by that (and deficiencies in my own last test ) , I'm going to concentrate on posture this year. I tend to lean forward.

Sounds great! Now, where to start........

One trait a year eh? It's going to be a long long life before I even start to get a grasp on Aikido.

to

"Move like a beam of light:
Fly like lightning,
Strike like thunder,
Whirl in circles around
A stable center.
Spring forth from the Great Earth;
Billow like Great Waves;
Stand like a tree, sit like a rock;
Use One to strike All.
Learn and forget!"

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration...
