Learning To Flow

7 Aug

Almost done with the first week of Hoop 30 Challenge and I’m feeling SO refreshed. There has been so much tied up in this for me.

I’m coming into a new awareness of who I am as a mother. Learning how to FLOW with three children is not an easy task. Just as finding my flow after not hooping for awhile has been a process.

During the days, I’ve wondered how I would ever get out to hoop…and yet, when I just dropped everything where it was and did it, wonderful things happened. I remembered how much I love to be outdoors in the evening. I remembered how fun it is to roll in the grass with my children.

Some days have come more naturally than others, but I’m making progress. Finding that blissful state again.

There are so many emotions that flow through my hoop. It refines me and helps me process.

…and the music! Oh the music. Several people in the Hoop 30 group have posted new Spotify music and it’s so fun explore playlists and find a song that just moves me. Physically AND emotionally.

Some that have really been awesome for me lately:

Farther Along :: Josh Garrels
Breakdown More :: Eric Hutchinson
I Won’t Give Up :: Jason Mraz

Lots of late night hooping…

…which means sometimes I have to take a break to focus on the more important things…but it’s all part of the journey. Much love to everyone who is on this journey with me.

**for those of you who had trouble with the links in the previous post, you need to add Alicia as a friend and tell her you want to join because it’s a private FB group.

    Great to hear your thoughts about hoop30, Sara. I admire you greatly, being able to get your hoop on while still being a present mother to your little ones. I’m loving hoop30! I love having a hoop community at last, even if it is online and on the other side of the world 🙂

    I can’t join the group or friend Alicia on FB, but I’m hooping everyday regardless and it’s wonderful.

      She might have closed the group already. I think today was the deadline to sign up. Sorry!

    So inspiring! How should one get started? What kind of hoop is good to start with? What are good moves to begin with?

      Hi Michelle! You can make hoops from supplies at your local hardware store. Or you can order them from my favorite hoopmaker, Lara at http://www.superhooper.org. LOVE their super grip hoops and she will give you a personal consultation via phone for sizing, etc. xo
