Men in Black. (Or Women)

Came upon this fella in NOLA on a street corner. Little Ninja felt a connection. 
They bonded while waiting for the light to turn green.
The light changed and little man stayed and little ninja went on her way
Never to meet again.

light the corners of my mind
Misty water-color  memories
Of the way we were
Scattered pictures

sniffle sniffle cough cough cough

I wonder if ninjas get colds.
No. I think they would assassinate any germs trying to infiltrate their personal space let alone their body.
I'd rather be a ninja. :(  aaachewwwww!

Be healthy

To me, the extraordinary aspect of martial arts lies in its simplicity. The easy way is also the right way, and martial arts is nothing at all special; the closer to the true way of martial arts, the less wastage of expression there is.

I keep reading this over and over. Not sure I completely understand or completely agree.

missed it by that much

Today, actually yesterday was my daughter's Prom. Missed putting up NFF PIC.
But I am still awake so it is still Friday to me so here's my pic of the week

Best part about flying is at 9:00 am you can have a drink and it's not frown upon. At least the ninjas weren't frowning.

A battle

I have to say that lately it just seems to be a lot of negative energy floating around my world.

Sorrow has inflicted many I know and me as well. Health issues. Disease. Death, accidental and the worse kind, the taking of another's innocent life. I have to admit it is a struggle not to let it consume me, Not to weigh me down in sadness. Sometimes it is harder than others. I try very hard not to get stuck on whys and ifs. Especially when whys are unanswerable and the ifs are in hind sight. But like I said, it is hard.
Yes, there is evil in world.
Yes, there is death and disease.
Yes, there is devastating natural disaster.
Life can change in  moment. No one is immune.

But then I think of my amazing, excepting, loving family. My mom. Husband, kids, brothers and sisters.
I think of my family of friends, wonderful, compassionate, intelligent women.
I think of the unbelievable Martial Arts community/ family I am lucky to be a part of.
I can not but smile. How incredibly lucky I am to have these people in my life.
Are our lives perfect? No. Are we perfect? No. But we are good people.

So my first ninja weapon against the sad, the evil, the horrible in the world is my sight. I see the happy, the good, and the amazing in the world and it soooooo has the tactical advantage. The sheer numbers of positive and good crushes the negative and bad.

My second ninja weapon is my voice. To speak up when you see injustice or when someone is in need.

The third ninja weapon is to act. Doing something to make the world a safer, healthier place. No matter how small.

Be observant

I wish I had the energy to write and update my blog
But I must say I am tired and my brain is in a fog
nothing really to see here so kindly keep moving on.
Sweet dreams wait for me patiently, slumber taking over til dawn

good night

be rested

Sometimes I just want to blend in and disappear.
Never being seen.
Never being heard. 
A ninja secretly watching separate from the world.

Next blog button

I am tired which means it's a next blog button night.
Sometimes I feel like a stalker as I glimpse into strangers lives. Sometimes I read a bit and explore and other times I am like  "I am so out of here".

I got nothing tonight. I suggest the next blog button. Go stalk someone else :)

Hard work

The rewards of a job well done. Especially a very difficult job.
Sometimes the reward is financial.
Sometimes the reward is a belt, trophy,  medal or even a plaque.
Sometimes it's the recognition.
But I think the best reward is the inner sense of accomplishment. Knowing you did a good job. Knowing you didn't give up. This is the best reward.
....... but cash is nice too. :)

be happy

My word of the day.

Consistency - steadfast adherence to the same principles, course, form.

You need it in your training. Be it in the martial arts or any other sport.
You need it when you go to school.  You need it when you work.
You need it when raising a child. (extremely important)
I appreciate consistency. Especially when you set standards and expectations.
If you set particular standards you must be consistent in the way you judge others by those standards.
If you change the standards and criteria or become lax in your consistency in up holding those standard it can give the sense of weakness. (It also makes me crazy.)

I bet ninjas are very consistent in their training, their thought process, beliefs and standards they live by.

Be consistent
