I never think that I have a lot of influence on people; not because of any insecurity but because I know from many years experience that most people go their own way and think their own opinions are best, which is totally cool to me!
A friend at work had taken Tai Chi(we were in the same class but didn’t know each other) about 20 years ago, and knew that I had gone back to it, and could see(I presume) how much it was helping me; both physically and mentally. I had urged her, about a year or so ago to take it again, as she was experiencing terrible pain and strife, both personally and in the work place. I knew it would be SO beneficial but obviously one cannot force someone..
Then I simply left the idea.
So imagine my surprise today when she suddenly said, “do you think that you have any Tai Chi schedules that I could have, I am thinking of going back to it..”
My jaw dropped..
Tomorrow, there is a workshop for “beginners and beyond” which I am attending, and she says that she will go too!
