Wing Chun Kung Fu – Body Memory

Went to another 2-hour wing Chun Kung fu session last night.  Loads of fun and learned a lot of new stuff. We tried Chi Sau (Sticky hands) for the first time and also did basic kicks for the first time.  We're really being drilled from the bottom up - it's a great beginners course.  Each [...]

Self-disciplined, or not!

I've always thought of myself as self-disciplined and motivated. I've always thought that I'm good at focusing and getting a task done.

Meeting my childlike vulnerability

I'm 36 years old. I've had a lot of experiences in life. Yet I still sometimes feel like a little boy inside.  If I were to give a voice to this little boy, he would say things like: "I'm scared that if I get it wrong, I'm going to get in trouble" "I think they're [...]

How I’m Finding my Life Purpose

For as long as I can remember I've had a dream about how my life could be. A dream where I feel truly free to explore and live a full life, experiencing lots of different people, places and cultures. For many, many difficult years this dream alluded me. For a long time I felt a [...]
