Jung SuWon warriors are all different – in so many ways….

The thing about taking coumadin is, that sooner or later it becomes routine.  You are starting to take it for granted.  The newness wears off.  Your attitude starts to sag.  And instead of feeling grateful that it is saving your life, you sometimes resent it because now you have to be more careful what you do, what you eat, and so forth.  Basically, instead of counting blessings, we tend to count the “can’t dos” and “don’t have’s”. 

During those times I resort to an excerpt one of Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim’s books that has helped me a lot, to set me straight again:

“Some aspects of life are unavoidable.  You didn’t choose the family or circumstances into which you were born, for example.  You didn’t choose many of the abuses, conflicts, or crises that may have occurred over the years.  And you will inevitably experience sickness in some form, old age, and death.  But you don’t have to regard these things as excuses for continuing unhappiness and failure.  Instead, you can decide that right now you will produce change in your life and that you will live your life as fully as you can, with as much love and happiness as you can.”  (The Silent Master, page 4)

I have a very good friend who is also training at Jung Suwon, and has been for almost 20 years now.  He has earned his black belt, and whenever I see him perform in the Do Jang, I know there are no obstacles that can’t be overcome, one way or another. 

I encourage you to take a look at this:

He Can Do, She Can Do, Why not me!
