Days following my testing:
Tuesday, April 20, 2010
Acouple days after my belt test, Sat. Mar. 27th, I decided to take time off. I thought I deserved it and that it was a benefit to me. I was going to take time off before my testing, but I didn't want to delay the test any longer. I wrote my instructor a note, which he read. What I asked from him in return was too... help me not to lose my way and then make sure I return.
I'm now been on my leave about a month now and enjoy it! I was miserable the first couple days about it, but I finally got over it. Acouple people tried to force me back, but after a few NO's...they left me alone. Now they ask.. "When are you returning", which I can answer freely. I've started a journal that is full of thoughts and negative/positive things that was bothering me. I jolted down different quotes I found in the past and discussions I had with my instructors. In the mean time I'm staying Active with swimming lengths and walking outdoors.
I watched this testing on the 18th of May.
