|Yeah, ouch for me!|
This reminded me of a time when I was about 14 or 15 and I was goofing off with my cousin Julie. We were seeing how high we could kick. I decided to try to kick really high, and I did, right before landing on my backside because I really wasn't capable of kicking that high! That was embarrassing, a little painful, and pretty funny too! This morning I wisely kept my kick low and decided I'd better start stretching regularly if I ever want to kick higher than someone's ankles!
One thing about Tai Chi, the lessons learned can often be applied to other parts of life. We practice based on what we can do, and if we keep practicing, the things we want to do will become possible!
