I was all geared up to write a post about how I tested for (and was awarded) my yellow belt on Saturday and how learning martial arts is a lot like going through life in respects to what it teaches you — independence, working at your own pace vs comparing your achievements to others, having a goal to aim for…Eventually I’ll get to it, as the more I reflect on these lessons that ultimately have nothing and everything to do with martial arts, the more I appreciate the fact that I actually had the motivation to start something that I have ended up loving.
I’m eager to write that post, but I’ve been dealing with some health issues the past few days that are of greater concerns to me. So while I get some testing done and figure out everything that’s going on there, I’m going to be taking a brief break from blogging. I have some drafts saved that I might post, and I may dig into the archives and repost whatever may seem relative: a “let’s see how far we’ve come” play may be nice and helpful at this stage in the personal development game.
Thanks for sticking around and bearing with me — I should be back on schedule within a week or two.
