Hi,

I am off the injured list. I'm not perfect, but after 25 years of limping and gimping I'm all better!

Yay!
my resolution is, gimp or not, I'm getting into a dogi and onto the mat this wk, even if all I can do is strech and solo practice mimicking what folks are doing together....I have a blown finger extensor and until its evaluated or operated on, I cannot risk further injury, but I also cannot use it as an excuse to stay home!

My resolution is to get in as much training as I can and *cross fingers* test for Shodan.

But I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. This is gonna be along freakin' year... eep!

To do list:

Finish painting the inside of the house and paint the outside.
Bring the new baby into the world. (That's a biggy of course)
Set-up new business and take over my boss' old business.
Pay off my old car and probably get a new(er) one. (Mini van)
Shodan test in November, not to mention all the training between now and then.

So much for taking things easy. HUH!

Hmm...

Just get back to enjoying my training, rather than pushing so hard.
Remembering that aikido gives me joy, and living as if.
Learning to "trust myself" as my senseis keep telling me (that's a long one).

Maybe fixing my forward rolls?

Well at this point, I am having surgery for a torn meniscus next week. So my resolution will be to recover from that. Also to let my broken finger heal and get my butt back onto the mat!

Firstly, find a dojo in Japan (hopefully it won't be hard- My home dojo now is 50 miles away). Secondly, arrange my schedule for daily training!
Sigh... hat a dream...

breaking the first resolution always leaves me relaxed and able to ignore all the rest and continue my happy slide into the depths man was not meant to wot of

Keep showing up, suiting up, and having a good time.
The rest will come because of that.

I kept my new years resolution simple: "Do more aikido."
