It is not last minute

Have you ever heard the expression “live in the moment”? Today’s youth may know it better as “YOLO” – You Only Live Once. Its message is to stop dwelling on the past & fretting about what may happen. Enjoy your life in the moment, because what is here today may be gone tomorrow.

Remember that there are things you enjoy with her now that you won’t be able to enjoy later. How does it feel to hold her in your arms and carry her, Beloved? Do you remember caressing her bald head?

This quote is from an article about a divorced father about the time spent with his child. Kids grow up, & there are certain parts of childhood that stay in childhood. You do not get to enjoy them again as parents. I still miss swaddling my daughter.

As adults, we may think to apply this to ourselves. We may think that since we didn’t try something in youth that we should move on. We had the chance to try it then. We should have enjoyed it then. We are grown now. Let’s “live in the moment”.

Right?

Maybe. But thinking of goals unfulfilled from the past can be motivational. There is a (false) belief out there that karate is only for kids. Sure, it is for kids. But karate is also for everyone…including you, the adult, the parent.

It isn’t too late to try karate.

We can help you with a great intro program, convenient locations, & flexible schedule. Fulfill that goal you had as a child. Live in the moment!
