A Dream Lost



Long ago I never thought this would be an issue... but now every time I see a kid wearing the outfit you see above... or every time I hear someone mention they were practicing the Martial Arts... a surge of immense jealousy suddenly sprouts out from inside me... I start feeling down for a long time after that...
I've always wanted to learn the Martial Arts as a kid, but I never got the chance... 1. cuz I didn't try to convince my dad when I was young. and 2. now that I'm a grown up and these martial arts are usually taught by men... I'm afraid I won't be allowed to... plus... I might be too old with 22 to start now...

this blows! =(

Its ok. Don't let it put you down. Everyone had something they wanted to do when they are young but couldn't do it or didn't do it and now regret it...

But we learn from our mistakes and try to not do them again. So next time when you want to do something just do it. =)

I do that and its like a routine now! =P

I wanted to learn a lot when I was young but because I never fought for what I wanted and followed people only I became like this... =P

At least our lives are not very bothered! =D

I miss tennis though that's a little lamer lol
But...It can't be too late right?

TripleTee said...

nope Hamdy... I spoke to a taekwondo student with a 2nd grade blackbelt in washington and I told her how it might be too late for me now. she told me it's never too late and that they have ppl over the age of 50 taking martial arts who are just as good.

I'm guessing same goes for tennis..lol

so I feel a lot better now that I didnt miss my chance :P

thanks for passing by.

It's never too late for anything, as long as you got what it takes to do it and your mind is set to it then you'll do it!

I seriously hope you get the chance to learn it since you really want to do it!

I said 'it' so many times ...
