22.03.19 Almost close to a year since first taking up Lyra. My instructor John noticed my answer to not being able to do a move is always “Not yet”. He pointed out how powerful those two words are. -
Yesterday’s practice made me notice several improvements, particularly those that I thought would never get better. I spun in and off for an hour straight without feeling ill. If you had told me even a month ago I would get to a point where I could control the spin and also be able to perform moves while spinning, without feeling like throwing up, I would have shaken my head and laughed. I knew it would happen “someday”, I just didn’t realise that day had finally crept up. So many little moves, drops to the bottom of the hoop, balancing without hands, all the things I thought I would get to “one day” is now here. I felt like every stuck moment, every stuck session, every shit session I pushed through and the thousands of attempts I made over and over again when things didn’t work, were worth it. -
Little changes happen that we don’t notice, until that “one day” you knew would come, finally arrives. I take away from it the attitude to apply to my studies and future struggles; if you keep going, keep committing, keep getting the hell up and pushing through even when you feel as if you can’t anymore, you will get there. “ONE DAY”. This is where enjoying the process, doing the process is so important. Because the process and all it’s ups and downs are crucial for that “one day”, and the thing you haven’t achieved “YET”. This is for all of you working for your “one day”. We are going to get there.
