Karate Nationals
Dear friend,

I'm feeling really down right now because I messed up a move on my first event. The sad part is that the quality of my performance for the second event just decreased... I'm feeling pretty down. But I also feel strong at the same time. There's a side of me that tells me: "Mistakes happen to everyone. This time, the odds were in your favour, but you're still a good karateka. You know within that you're loyal and that you do your best all the time. All the effort you put in karate isn't put to waste. It's an advantage because you can only get better from there on."

I won 3rd place on my last event, but my first two were the events I really wanted to do really well.

When I felt really sad about it, I started singing a song... and as I sang, I walked home alone under the rain. It was dark and cold; pretty depressing.

"Seconds, hours, so many days,
You know what you want, but how long can you wait
Every moment lasts forever
When you feel you lost your way..."

The song is called "No boundaries," and it it sung by Kris Allen. Kris Allen inspired me to never give up or never feel down when something bad crossed my life. He inspired me to keep doing my best in school, recover from depressing moments, and work train harder and more effectively in karate.

I had a tear fall down. This karate competition was really important to me...

No Boundaries PLAY

Seconds, hours, so many days
You know what you want
But how long can you wait?
Every moment lasts forever
When you feel you've lost your way

And what if my chances were already gone?
I started believing that I could be wrong
But you give me one good reason
To fight and never walk away
So here I am still holding on

With every step, you climb another mountain
Every breath, it's harder to believe
You'll make it through the pain
Weather the hurricanes to get to that one thing

Just when you think the road is going nowhere
Just when you almost gave up on your dreams
They take you by the hand and show you that you can
There are no boundaries, there are no boundaries

I fought to my limit to stand on the edge
What if today is as good as it gets?
Don't know where the future's heading
But nothing's gonna bring me down

I've jumped every bridge and I've run every line
I've risked being safe but I always knew why
I always knew why
so here I am still holding on

With every step, you climb another mountain
Every breath, it's harder to believe
You'll make it through the pain
Weather the hurricanes to get to that one thing

Just when you think the road is going nowhere
Just when you almost gave up on your dreams
They take you by the hand and show you that you can

You can go higher, you can go deeper
There are no boundaries above and beneath you
Break every rule 'cause
There's nothing between you and your dreams

With every step, you climb another mountain
Every breath, it's harder to believe

Yeah, there are no boundaries
There are no boundaries

With every step, you climb another mountain
Every breath, it's harder to believe
You'll make it through the pain
Weather the hurricanes

There are no boundaries
There are no boundaries
There are no boundaries


I guess I'll be happy again when I finally watch Catching Fire.

On Tuesday, when I go back to my karate class, I'll keep on practicing. I won't give up even if I'm feeling sad right now. I'll study Psychology to get my mind off of it for now.

Love always,
Ren
