Winter is time for rebirth of sorts. After cutting away what we no longer need in the fall, we look to winter for a chance to renew ourselves. That’s why we talk about making new year’s resolutions in order to be a better person. But most of us fail when we have not gotten rid of the things that are in our way.
For me, there were a lot of events in my life forcing me to let go of things that were no longer serving me. And while it has taken a while to adjust to the change in energy, I begin to set the intention of manifesting a community of people who are ready to let go of unproductive stress, excessive workouts that really only aggravate the body instead of rejuvenating it and are ready to be happy! And I mean truly happy which implies being grateful for each and every moment (good or not so good), focus on the present, and being content with whatever comes our way. And I am truly grateful for all the events of 2017 even though it made me uncomfortable and angry sometimes. Those events forced me to look inside and see what part I played in my own stress and discomfort.
Moving out of downtown Peekskill where we were located for over 8 years into our new space at Go No Sen Karate center allowed me to let go of extraneous expenses, parking problems, and noise! Thank you Renshi Adam McCauley and your staff for welcoming us so warmly and graciously! We feel so at home here. I look forward to seeing some old and new faces and introducing you all to the people here at Go No Sen Karate.
My hope for this year is to see more of you at our new location. We are enjoying our bigger and better space that has lots of free parking so we can better offer more New and Free Classes and workshops!
