Tai chi starts tonight! I am a quivering mass of trepidation.
I'm afraid that:
- It will hurt
- I won't be able to do anything the way the teacher does it
- My knee will give out (I somehow tweaked it this morning, God only knows how, and almost died of knee pain while redeeming aluminum cans at Star Market)* and I will shriek and cry
- I'll be fatter, older, and way more awkward than anyone else in the class
- I won't like it
Okay, seeing my fears written out like this is good, because I can live with all of those things, even pain.
All will be well.
— Lady C, at peace
* J, now you know what I decided!
(I wrote J a past-due birthday note this morning and gave her the list of everything I might do today. And since "redeem cans" was the big winner, I think you can imagine how wondrous the other possibilities were, oui?)
