The August schedule is now up and most of you are going or will be going back to school soon (if you haven't gone back already). Karate is always in session though!
With that being said, Sensei Aaron recently challenged everyone to this assignment:
"Think of/say 6 positive things before you think of a negative thing"
For example, if your Mom or Dad tells you to do your chores, instead of grumbling, you could say "Thank you Mom for cooking breakfast. Thank you for washing my clothes. I love you Mom, etc." By the time you get to the sixth thing, your negative thought shouldn't matter - it should be forgotten. Not just for our younger students but our adult students too! Anyone can do this.
It's a small change that can change the way you think day by day. You'll think more positively out of habit. Then you can share this with others and they can change their attitudes. This small change could even have an impact on the world.
So think positively and live positively everyone! See you in class!
