Day One Hundred & Three…

Today was about my son, David. He is a student of Nokado and he moved up to his blue belt. As his sensei says, “Blue for the ocean and all the dangers that lie beneath.”  Martial Arts is all about discipline (physical and mental), respect, and skill.  I had many proud mama moments tonight. I just love that he loves it:

At the end of the evening, everyone was shaking my and husband’s hand and congratulating us because our son had done something very difficult. It was clear to both of us that the members of the dojo really knew him. Again, I was reminded of the importance of having a supportive community. More than that, having a sense of happiness and gratification and dare I say, joy.

When we experience joy in what we do we no longer need stamina.

Is your weight loss journey joyful? Do you have a supportive community? The best news is that it’s there for you if you want it. I hope you had a good day, and if you didn’t, I’m sorry and let’s just work on it some more tomorrow.
