Bunny Ears! Freakin’ Bunny Ears!

Soooo… I decided on a whim to try bunny ears today. I tried it once before but it seemed so difficult at the time I stopped after just a few attempts. Today I spent a little bit of time doing it over and over, remembering Babz advice (bend over with a flat back!), and a lot of pointers to myself (stick your elbow up! not your arm, your elbow!). The result was a success!

I sort of can’t believe it. It’s a pretty hard trick. The first time I got it I was like, “Whoa. That just happened.” Then I was kicking myself for not having a camera on. I spent the next 15 minutes doing it over and over until it happened again, and got it three times. I wonder how long it’ll take me to do it again.

Practice, practice. Even when you get really frustrated with something you’re working on, there’s the potential for so much joy in hooping. It almost makes it better. When you’re thinking you’re stuck and you’ll never get it and suddenly that trick you’ve been slaving over happens. That moment of success, the feeling of triumph. The smile, laugh, shout, and joy radiates out of you.
