Home

Every now and again, I get flashes of feeling like this is where I'm supposed to be in the hoop community.  I'll get good feedback either online or in person.  Sometimes opportunities fall into my lap.  One of those times I include my polypro.  I had the intention of buying one but I wound up getting it for free.  That was just luck that I found a website error but to me it seemed to tell me that I was supposed to get a polypro.  Recently I've felt like I was in a hoop rut.  Hooping.org is now hosting another 30/30.  This is a time I will work on more flow and waist/hip hooping.  The other night, I was able to go to Ann Humphrey's workshop.  It was amazing but that's another blog.  When I came home, I found out that I had $20 in my paypal account due to Dube links.  That meant I was able to buy the Seeding 2 class on sale.  I wanted it so bad and the ability just fell in my lap.  I am so happy and thankful for the flow community.

I feel like this is my home and I'm supposed to be here.  You have no idea how I wish I could go back in time, find that hurting 16 year old and hand her a hoop.  My life would be completely different.  This is why I want to bring hooping to my community.  There is hardly any flow community and they are hardly united in my area.  I want to spread the good news.  Gosh, I sound like an evangelist.

When I first found hooping.org, I was driven to be on there in some fashion.  When he posted my tutorial, I screamed and ran through the apartment.  I don't think I wanted it for fame but to touch more people with my hooping (and glory is a good plus).  When he was asking for help, I emailed him and checked my email daily.  No answer for weeks.  I realized he probably had looked on my blog and was like, "blahhhh! She sucks!"  Eventually, he answered.  I probably screamed again.  I was going to be a contributor for hooping.org.  I was amped and I still am.  Philo is like, awesome, if you didn't know.  Now, I just need to get a picture or video on hoopcity.ca and I'm cool.

 I've gotten a couple compliments on my writing through this blog and hooping.org.  The support I got from the hoop community through my first hooping.org article was fantastic.  I am so thankful that I was able to find this amazing community where I fit in.  Where I can have a conversation with someone and not feel like I'm just odd.  I feel like I'm at the same level as most people in the flow community.  I want to thank everyone so much for reading this blog and supporting me.  I would also like to thank my mom because it's through her help that I'm able to take some of the opportunities that I'm  able to take like going to Caroleeena's and Ann's classes.  She supports me even when other people don't.  She may think I'm crazy but she helps me get there if I want to go.  Most the teachers I've met, yes, even the famous ones, act like they are your best friend and want you there.  They are not there just "for the money."  Everyone seems genuine.

Thank you, everyone.  I know I'm just a silly girl that is just starting to dig into the flow community.  It's all so new and amazing.  It means a lot that you are with me on this journey.  Go get your flow on, flow warriors.

  1. This is awesome. I saw all the feedback your article is getting on hooping.org - you must be so proud! It's a great thing to bring the community together with your writing. People are talking and commenting when they never have before. You're really reaching a broad audience, and it's wonderful! :)
