day 747 – successes of an instructor

today i received a thank you note from a student i have been teaching and mentoring for the last several years. the note had high praise and reinforces why i have been and still continue to teach to this day. it truly defines why i make the sacrifices to teach because nothing warms my heart than to see my students perform and meet their goals. although she never became a blackbelt, there was a lot that she did right, more than what the black belt itself may have exemplified. i am truly appreciative of all the time and effort she put into assisting junior students and practicing for herself, and wish her the best of luck in her studies

today is a good day as my physio cleared me to resume light activities and training in preparation for competition. my eyes glowed and my heart exploded with joy when he broke the news to me. pleasantly surprised my physio got me back on my feet so quickly, i can’t thank my physio and kinesiologist enough for everything but i take some credit since i had to listen to stay put, work hard at rehab and do all those dorsiflexions. the best news in a week along with glimpse of sunshine in the afternoon
