What??? Is that a typo in my title? No.
Forgive me father, for I have sinnned. It has been two weeks since my last taiji training session. I have no real reasons, just excuses. The weather is too hot, and I am easily distracted. I want to be better. I want to be a better taiji practitioner. I spread the taiji gospel to all those who I think could benefit from taiji, yet I do not practice myself. I feel like a fraud, father. Please forgive me. Tell me the penance so I may repent.
In a whispering voice from the corner of my mind:
wujimon, the answer is simple. You must first learn to stand before you can walk. With each and every step, be balanced. Don’t lean on others and don’t let others lean on you. Practice, Practice, Practice.
On the main page of my blog, a new section in the sidebar has been added called “Goals”. The first goal is 28 Days of Taiji. It is commonly said that it takes 28 days to build a habit, so I will try to do some taiji training each and every day for 28 days. This could be forms practice, hotel taiji, silk reeling, movement training, just some type of training instead of the occasional silk reeling technique while walking down the street.
The second goal is 100 Hrs of Zhan Zhuang. I’ve attempted this before but failed at the 12 hr mark. This time I will persist and the incentive will be the fact that I have the goals and progress bars on the main page of my blog! I’ve used services like TracksLife, 43 Things, Joe’s Goals for tracking progress, but I could easily hide behind those services b/c the status and progress wasn’t very visible. However, with it being listed on the front page of my blog, I really have no where to hide.
