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.
The spotlight of attention ...
Our attention is like a spotlight. Unfortunately though, it is often drawn to things that make us feel bad/stressful, etc … the trick is in understanding that ultimately, we are in charge of pointing that spotlight anywhere we like. Here’s something that has helped me on more than one occasion… when you feel bad/upset/hurt … force the spotlight of your attention onto something else other than the thing that is causing you to be unhappy. Expend the energy doing something that will move your life forward and improve things in some other area … this way you will heal more quickly; and the bonus is that you get some gain/benefit that otherwise might well have missed out on.
