|What's to stop it falling..?|
Like the rock in the photo, events can hang over you, ready to drop and knock you down. The way ahead seems narrower than before, less choice to go to the left or the right, to avoid the problem in front of you; no, in life it always boils down to a simple choice to keep moving forward: or stop. What I've learnt from karate these past 40 years, is to just keep going.
Yesterday wasn't a great day for me...and I know there are other days like that still to come, but I'll deal with them when they get here. Going to the dojo helps, it allows me time to take stock, to re-think...to settle. When crap happens, I remind myself of something I realized many years ago; that the bad experiences in life, are only the bits that separate the good times.
