In Dan Gilbert’s book, Stumbling on Happiness, he advises that when faced with a decision, always seek out the advice of trusted friends or colleagues. I did just that with a big decision. Not only did this friend/colleague give me the advice, she backed it up with specific rationale. I feel very grateful for this friend and her good counsel.

(Note: I know I am being vague but until I am ready to make announcements, that’s how it has to be)

I have known Shifu for over a dozen years. I feel truly blessed to have learned from him and glad to be back under his tutelage at his new school, Monk Wise. With the new school comes a new look and new moves. I learned so much about life on the mat. Shifu taught me to trust myself and to erase the word “can’t” from my dictionary. He has helped me to be the man I am today. I am forever in his debt. A thousand thank yous would only scratch the surface.

We might not always like each other, but we always love each other. My family doesn’t always agree with my choices and opinions, but they always love me. And sometimes when they predict that perhaps I might fall on my face on this one, they support and trust me nonetheless. And when I come to them with tears in my eyes and pebbles and twigs and asphalt smashed into my cheeks and hair, they hose me off, give me a hug and encourage me to keep on moving, keep on Being Me. Because I’m perfect just the way I am.
