mid way hoop journey

Sunday, March 10, 2013

i am half way through my lenten hoop journey. I am hooping for 40 days to 40 different music artists to try and expand my flow.

I have also vowed not to try to learn any new tricks because its easy to get overwhelmed and frustrated. i am just practicing things i already know, working in reverse currents, and generally just enjoying getting comfortable with the hoop that i once thought was too fast for me.

From all this, I hope to have found my own unique style. I did miss one day, but besides that, I have really looked forward to making sure I get my time in. I have found myself wanting to go home. I have actually found myself missing my hoop. I felt very sad the one day I missed.

I did not think I could love an object but it has become a meditation during a trying time. It makes me feel confident and beautiful. It is far less painful than a standard workout because I am changing every day and making art.

    I feel the same way about my hoop! I'm pretty new at hooping, but I understand what you said about sometimes getting frustrated and overwhelmed trying to learn new tricks all the time (I'm in that right now!). But I feel like I want to learn everything as fast as I can, and it just doesn't always work that way. You're doing great.....and if you're like me, the hoop is so much more than just a hoop, it's been a real transitional, life changing experience! emoticon
