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.
To strive toward authenticity is an admirable pursuit!
Being authentic will mean different things to different people; but to me it is largely about being congruent. What we do, what we say, how we behave, how we live - all beginning to align. We can never please everyone - this is an impossibility. There are those who will love us for our congruence - there are those who will despise us for it. But in being congruent - in being authentic - we carve for ourselves a much clearer course into the future. Being congruent - being authentic - requires effort, attention, discipline and a willingness to admit to our faults - and a desire to make ongoing course corrections so that the various aspects of our being begin to more closely align. So on the mat - and so too in life. JBW
