Well, now I feel guilty. I should have sucked it up and gone to class last night. But having a family night and getting some sleep was really nice.
Today on my break time I worked on the first couple of moves that we learned of our form. It have those down pretty good. That round kick is tricky. I do it much better on a hard, flat surface than I do on the mats at the dojong.
Emotionally I am so tired from all the other things going on in my life that it makes doing the physical so much harder. I don’t know if everyone goes through that or not, but when I am stressed or overwhelmed I just want to make myself a nest of my favorite things and not move. If I hide from all the bad things, then nothing else bad can find me. I know that does not make any sense, but it is a coping mechanism. It is a very real struggle to get up and get moving. I am finding, though, that the exercise is really helping with the sensation of being overwhelmed.
