When I think back on my life, the most prevailing emotion I recall is fear.
Now I perceive it as anxiety.
It can be paralyzing. Perhaps that is why I find visualizing myself as a female Samurai warrior to be so empowering.
I am thinking about studying martial arts again.
Last night, my little flashlight ran out of batteries. I have just begun carrying it. Makes more sense than hoping and praying I don't get hit by a car on the walk home in the dark. On a road without sidewalks.
But as I considered stopping to buy new batteries, a thought popped into my head.
"A Samurai would be better prepared"!
That was all the incentive I needed. I hightailed it to Wal-Mart in search of a big, powerful flashlight. Preferably one that could be used to protect myself, should the need arise.
And lo and behold; the "Batlight"!
Just what a commuting Samurai grandma needs!
And on that note, I wish you a happy Friday!
P.S. Here is today's hooping video. Day 232!
