I was excited to blog about my first year playing poker as a member of PSO. I thought about what I did not know a year ago, in what ways and why I feel somewhat more confident now. But then I lost my Muse as the world collectively mourns the death of Nelson Mandela. I feel profoundly sad but like so many, I celebrate his life accomplishments. . .

I need acceptance in order to attain my goals for 2014. Currently, I push myself in spite of times when I am unwell. I feel guilty when I miss a Live Training; don’t partake in Leagues, in all the special events offered by PSO and PokerStars; when I don’t go through each Poker Bite, by way of example; when I set my goal to play five to six 10NL Zoom sessions per week and won’t stop until I am plus per session; when I must at least maintain my Silver status, and the list continues. This is my ego undermining self-compassion and is antithetical to what Mandela taught throughout.
