Hoop Dreams: Embrace Your Goofball

Hoop Dreams: Embrace Your Goofball.

Okay, probably that star performance looks different in this kid’s head and Cirque Du Soleil won’t be calling just yet … but does she look like she is bothered ?

Heck No !

As an adult ( Shut up! … I am too ), I am, at least, this impressive almost every day.  It’s true that not all the plans that goes awry involves a hula hoop but those meetings/date/hostage negotiations often work out differently to how I envisioned them. 

“But hula hooping is fun, Mr. President.”

I think the point is that we are all … “special” and that we should embrace our “special” qualities.

I don’t mean settle for the talents you have been gifted without aspiring for greater heights … but accept your goofy moments and don’t let embarrassment stop you. 

Look at this kid! She’s not deterred. 

This Is An Awesome Fail! 

Perfection is so overrated, anyway. So . . . . . Embrace Your Goofball!!! . . . . . You know it makes sense.

( Perfection isn’t overrated when engineering precision equipment or when piloting the space shuttle. No hula hooping during take off ! )

Sorry about the lack of basketball but hula hoop is a sport too, right? lol 😀

Nick Jackson was born in the UK, the land of gunpowder tea, but moved to America to escape exploding cups of tea. He now lives in Florida where he attempts come to terms with concepts such as how flat everything is and whether the alligator is a golfer's natural predator. Nick has written for Monkey Pickles from the beginning, as established in Cern, Switzerland, with the discovery of the long-sought Monkey Pickle Particle. He is somewhat "freaked out" by writing in the third person. Nick is motivated to write for the pleasure of the experience rather than to pay the bills, but he does recognize that pleasure is still not an acceptable method of payment in most respectable retail outlets. He hopes to raise a smile or two before being ejected from the store.
