Thank you all for the sweet comments on my February photo from yesterday. I am glad you also enjoyed Lauren’s guest post as much as I did. She is simply inspiring.
This “stranger” is incredible! She performed during the halftime show at the Northwestern basketball game and by the time she was finished, had the whole crowd on their feet. Her talent? Balancing on a unicycle well above the ground, for starters. Balancing one bowl on her head was also enough to amaze me – until she began flipping piles of bowls on top of the first one!
She started with one or two at a time, as in the picture above, but by the end had at least six or seven bowls piled all the way up her shin, which she would then toss with what looked like the greatest of ease into the growing collection of bowls on her head. Amazing.
I don’t know what it takes to develop a skill such as this one, but I can imagine that a lot of practice and strength are involved. I give her a lot of credit for not only tackling the physical requirements, but the mental ones as well. By the time you’ve nailed down the former, all it takes is the latter – in the form of intense concentration and believing in yourself 100% of the time – to be successful.
Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend so far! What are you up to on your days off?
