You're so right-- it's all too easy to focus so hard on the things you're still trying to achieve that you forget what you CAN do! That's why I've learned to make my daily practice at least half jam, rather than 100% new-trick drills, so that I never lose sight of the joy of it. It also helps you keep your flow going. Rock on! :D
So true. I'm reminded of this when I see beginner hoopers at a Hoop Jam or the class I'm not attending...waist hooping alone is difficult at first. Sure some take to it quicker than others, but that goes for all moves. Isolations may seem simple to some, and yet others need to put in hours upon hours of practice in order to get the most basic isolation down.
This is awesome! You're awesome! and to add to the vibes, i think all the people on here are really sweet and i feel like i could plop down to dinner with many of you and feel like old friends. Everyone is so kind and supportive of this community. Love you all.
This is a great post. Thanks for bumping it, Lauren :) I don't know when it changed from thinking of myself, "holy crap I can hula hoop on my freakin knees!!!!" to "man, that was sloppy, ugh, dropped the hoop again, can't I keep my arm straight?" etc. I needed the reminder. We are all pretty awesome :D
