Stress-related faffing

I\’m in a state of extended faffing about at the moment, partly because I\’m in a blue funk. The reason for my funk, faffing and general uselessness is that I am taking my 3rd Dan black belt in Taekwondo (ITF style) this Sunday. It\’s my second attempt so I\’ve been training a lot and feeling grumpy that, although my body will usually do the things I want it to like kicking above my head and breaking things and so on, it then sulks and aches for days afterwards and I totter about feeling crippled.

My son wants to know why I\’m bothering. Because it\’s there, son, because it\’s there.
***
Also probably because I\’m an idiot.
