Life is Choice,…
Every option, Every decision, that you make in life, is just like a doorway, You choose which ones you walk through or not, the choice is up to you.
Every Doorway, every intersection has a story, and that story is a crucial part towards the journey that you take; not just as a martial artist, but as a person as well.
You can choose to be anything that you want to be, you can choose to be negative, or positive, it is up to you.
No one that has chosen to be negative, hateful or a victim has ever discovered the secret of the stars, sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new doorway for the human spirit.
You must not,…for any reason,… give up the effort to make yourself a better person, or help those that are around you.
Creativity, focus, perseverance, dedication and determination will give you the inner strength needed to push through the heavy, and what seems non-moveable doorways of life.
I hope that this insight today helps you all in your journey as well as your training in Budo.
Take care, Be safe and Good luck in your journey of Budo.
