That was class today.
It was very fun...I learned a wrist lock..arm break and an osoto gari..which is just A turn and a leg reap to the rear.
I really enjoy classes.
I am constantly made aware of many women in bad relationships.
Maybe they were always there..
but I believe it's possible to be mugged in your own home.
by your significant other.
mugged of your peace of mind..
the right to a peaceful life, of a sense of well being..
of being loved by a good and a decent person.
We can be mugged psychologically..
When being mugged..
we can either stand there and allow it to happen.
we can fight back.
And I am here to tell you...
that no one has the right to lay a hand on you without your permission.
Just let that thought settle into your psyche.
No one has the right to belittle you..
tear you down.
make you feel less than.
Only you have the power to stop it.
but for right now..
I want you to feel the power of those words.
NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO PUT A HAND ON YOU.....
The first time I heard that...I snorted.
Because I have had plenty of people put their hands on me..
their mouths on me..
their ideas on me.
But accepting that simple premise..and it took some time.
Made me the owner of my own body.
Just a thought..
I will talk some more about this later.
just think about it.
see if, deep down, you really believe that.
