Musings, ponderings and various observations on the intersection of BJJ/Martial arts training and the living of life. I have no inclination toward either political correctness or correct spelling. This blog, such as it is, remains fundamentally an unfiltered gush of thought ... both raw and unpolished.
We have our Guard Passing hat – our Sweeping Hat – our
Attacking/Finishing hat – our Escaping/Defending Hat, etc.
Our tendency, our natural instinct, is to wear the hat we like the
most – and that’s fine – but sometimes, it’s not sunny, sometimes, it’s
raining, or snowing, or windy. Over time, we develop a Hat Collection … and we
even develop a taste for wearing hats that at one time we didn’t like. And so
it is also, with life … Sometimes, I have my ‘Dad’ hat on, other times, my
Husband hat, my accountant/business hat (don’t like that one much), other times
my training hat, my flyfishing/wilderness/adventuring hat, my teaching hat and
right now, my writing hat. You get the idea.
If you only have one or two hats you like to wear … it may be worth
thinking about adding a few more to your collection. There is a strong
correlation between our ability to adapt in life and the size and quality of
our hat collection. JBW
