A year ago I could have won a million dollars. You know what the most amazing thing is... I'm happy I didn't. The final contest never happened and the million dollar prize was never awarded. It makes me shutter to think about what it might be like if the contest had gone through and I ended up winning a million dollars.

Imagine it for a second. This was BEFORE Hoop City. If I had won a million dollars on the first of January, TWO WEEKS before creating Hoop City........... who knows what would have happened? I would have used the money to go travelling and gotten distracted and likely never would have discovered a way to make Hoop City a reality. It makes me nauseous just thinking about it. Thank God I didn't win that money. There's no way it would have compared to this.

We are so blessed in life without seeing it. The universe has quite the sense of humour and uses a sick way of unfolding things in ways that make us feel defeated or that we've lost something when in reality our "loss" is really a catalyst to something greater."

Much love,

It's amazing how things work out isn't it? I am thankful that you created this online community where I've have learned, shared, and felt connected to hooping on a deeper level. Without it I probably wouldn't have been as active in the hoop community as I have been (or been able to meet other hoopers). This site has been an AMAZING resource. From tricks, products to buy, to making my first hoop (which I just did today!!) I'm so glad you made this dream a reality. I just want to say thank you Safire, from the bottom of my heart cause now everyday I have somewhere to go to share my passion of hooping with others and I don't feel so alone in this crazy hobby of mine. thank you thank you thank you!!!

That is a very positive way to look at it. I don't htink I could ever be such a big person and say that... but I am definitely happy you created and grew this community. Even though I've only been here a short time, it has been a wonderful place to share my passion.

I look forward to meeting you some day in person and thanking you again.

Hurray for the weavers of fate! I've been wishing for a community for hooping so I can find people close to me and share in this delight, today I found it here at Hoop City. I'm so excited to meet the few people I have already added and hope to add and meet more. THANK YOU for creating this forum. By the way, it is SUPER user friendly; simple and elegant, just as the Universe intends.

amen, sistah! I bought a lottery ticket today. If I win, I am buying a sweet fire hoop, and then a Frida Kahlo painting :-) and maybe a dishwasher (then I could hoop more lol) but I totally agree with you, I am living proof... so many things that I thought were horrible at the time, have taught me so many valuable lessons, that I am lucky to have learned from!
