I just got back from a wonderful vacation in beautiful Maui. Sigh.
Sometimes you just need to get away, take some time for yourself, enjoy nature in all it's glory and hit that reset button.
I usually practice at home and train wherever I go, but I have to say, for probably the first time ever, I did not train for the week!
I know, I know, all those picture perfect opportunities of practicing my forms in the sand with palm trees swaying in the background or kicking the waves in the ocean like Daniel did with Mr. Miyagi in "The Karate Kid" come to mind.
But instead of thinking about the new curriculum I had to learn, all the new names and faces I had to memorize, or the lesson plans I had to create, I just relaxed!
I ate, swam, hiked, snorkeled, ate some more and just soaked in all Maui had to offer with no stress of the mainland on my mind at all. Yup, I hit the reset button HARD and I have no regrets ;)
But now I'm back and ready to start my new journey!
New schools, new experiences and SO MUCH new stuff to learn quickly.
Let's do it!
