Oh, How I Do Love This

I spent part of last night's teaching with a young student frustrated by her inability to do a new kata well when first learning it. Then I spent another part of last night self-examining when and why I'm able to graciously accept criticism and correction, as well as when and why I'm hurt and offended by it -- and what years of being publicly, pointedly, and professionally corrected during karate classes and tournaments have done to my attitude toward repetition, failure, and contentment.

Then I read this, posted by one of my Viable Paradise classmates LaShawn Wanak, and wanted to share it with everyone.

I've been directing my karate students to it as well.
