I'm still grinning

Monday, April 13, 2015      6 comments

After my test, someone said I had a big grin on my face....don't think I felt it at the time, but right now that grin keeps coming back....I did it. One of the things that reminds me of that is that "goal board" on the start page....I had that ... Read more

It only took 16 years, but I did it. I took my aikido shodan test....that translates to my black belt test in aikido. I feel really good about it and still acknowledge that the accomplishment is really the beginning. In fact in the aikido wor... Read more

Meltdown Moments

Saturday, April 04, 2015      2 comments

I don't know about you...but I occasionally have my meltdown moments. I used to be able to blame it on TOM or PMS or whatever initials you wanted to pick....I can no longer blame it on anything other than who I am in a situation that I'm in at a... Read more

One of the little blocks that flashes across my start page on my motivation board says: "Build Confidence." I am definitely in the flight pattern for my aikido black belt test. My sensei is definitely watching...pushing...pushing. This is rea... Read more

Trying to find the right picture that describes where I'm at is tough.....I really enjoy MOTHER-NATURE's Morning Cup of's like always the best image. Here's my images and they relate to the end of the winter....the expectation ... Read more

On funks

Wednesday, March 18, 2015      5 comments

I hate getting in a funk....actually I really dislike the process of picking myself back up and getting myself out of a negative mood swing. I'd like to think that I'm not excessively moody....I don't even have the right to blame it on TOM anym... Read more

I'm a Christian and that happens to be an important part of my life - that does not preclude appreciating parts of other religious paths that Christians don't focus on as much. (of course that said, one could argue that among the many paths that... Read more

Revisiting goals

Saturday, January 31, 2015      3 comments

I'm in a funk....that's probably not the best way to describe it....more like bummed and feeling sorry for myself....maybe that's the definition of funk. It appears that my black belt test will be put off for "sometime this year" because the h... Read more

It's interesting....I've been a member of sparkpeople for awhile and I've been on teams, but until Dawn, one of my SEALS co-captains gave us a mini-challenge of visiting the pages of our fellow teammates, I don't think I ever really visited othe... Read more

The weekend challenge for BLC 27 for the SEALS (and others as well) has one small bingo block which represents a stumbling block for me and is going to require me to work. It says "Plan your menus for one week." I don't do that very well...Typ... Read more
