One of the prime reasons for Okinawan longevity is their emphasis upon the importance of avoiding tension in every aspect of life.
The first calligraphy Ryuko Tomoyose gave me states " Sometimes you think you won, but you really lost and sometimes you think you lost and you've really won."
Looking back, I realize I've lived the reality of that a thousand times in and away from the context of martial art.
I've come to the conclusion that I've succeeded in keeping stress out my life only to the extent I can manage who is in my life - more importantly, who isn't. I value and pay attention to those I include and I ignore all the rest.
