You are right! Thanks for that--it is easy to lose perspective. I had been feeling a bit put out by the expectations I put on myself hooping recently. Since I picked the hoop up, I'd been like, "I'll be a great hooper once I get such and such a move..." and then eventually, very eventually, I get it. But then I'm already feeling inadequate because I can't do the next such-and-such move. It used to inspire me to push on, but I felt I hit a wall and was like, "Aw man. At this rate I'll be 80 by the time I accomplish all of my hoop goals..."
I've been perking up again tho. It's good to push through a wall, but sometimes it's good to take a break, too.
But you are right! And thank you!
Thanks for the uplifitng words! Since I started using my polypro hoop a few weeks ago, some of the moves I had a bit of consistency with aren't as consistent. It's like I have to relearn a few of them as I adjust to how the new hoop behaves. That can get to be a downer if I dwell on it.
Your post reminds me that I actually know those moves, even if I'm having to readjust how I execute them with the new hoop. It also recalls to me that I'm doing things now that I wasn't a month ago, like jumpthroughs. No way would I have even attempted those B.P. (before polypro).
Thanks again for the encouragement. We all need a dose of that now and again. :) *hugs*
I love it!
