The Pain of Progress?!?!?
Some days you feel great! Your mind and body are in synch...everything flows and all is well with the world. Other days, it's just a matter of survival...trying to just hold off the attacks...trying to hold off the growing frustration...trying to figure out where you are and what you are doing. Each training session is different. Each roll it different. Everyone has ups and downs...good days and bad. Sometimes it can be several days or several weeks of frustration. It can be an uncomfortable time...but eventually it turns around. You have ups and downs. Both are necessary in life and in jiu-jitsu. The downs only mean that you or your world is changing, trying different things...or maybe it's making you realize that you have to try different things....either way, it is about progress and evolution and leads you toward the next step in the journey of jiu-jitsu and/or life.
