Full Circle

Well, I’ve come full circle.

The middle of next month, I resume my career as a certified public accountant with a regional auditing and accounting firm.  I am pretty excited about this.

The thing about coming full circle is that sometimes it can feel like you are right back where you started.

And, well, you are.

And you aren’t.

Life’s journey is through time….so every circle we make is really a spiral.  Every circle around the sun makes me one year older, and if I am paying attention it may make me that much wiser, right? That’s why the true pilgrimage, begins when you arrive.

Same holds true for the Taiji curriculum  – every time you come back to something you have studied before, you’re actually bringing all your accumulated progress to the new study  – so you feel like you’ve come full circle, but you’ve really come full spiral!

And that’s me, today. I’ve come full spiral. Wondering what it will look like, feel like, be like, this time around.

Similar, but different, I bet!

They Say It’s Good for You!

Have you checked out all the health benefits of Tai Chi? 

OMG!

There are studies showing that tai chi improves balance, flexibility, strength and motor coordination….yeah, we knew that….

No wait, there’s more….

Today I read about a study that shows that practicing tai chi makes your brain bigger! Apparently that means less dementia as we age.  Geez, what else? Tai chi has been shown to reduce the symptoms of arthritis, fibromyalgia, Parkinson’s disease and I don’t even know what else.

I am interested in what science is discovering about tai chi – and accumulating the evidence to prove the health benefits are ‘real.’ If you are curious to learn more, I am keeping a list at RESEARCH CENTRAL. Check it out.

Meanwhile, I am also just as happy to know that when I practice, I feel better.  Glad the science proves it!

til the next move

enjoy your practice,
