Dandioy's Diary | Hula Hoop 呼拉圈 (121216)


If I have to list something that I'm very bad at, playing hula hoop will be at the top of my list.

I've tried playing it so many times throughout my whole life every now and then,
but it just seems that I could not grasp the correct "rhythm" of spinning a hula hoop.
I remembered when I was young there were only jumping ropes and hula hoops at home,
so since I had no idea how to play a hula hoop, I just tend to jump the rope. (which might explain why I'm tall lol but of course I ate a lot since young so I guess I was really well fed lol)

I blamed it to my inflexible waist and hips. I used to tell myself that maybe I'm just not made for playing a hula hoop. However every time I see someone playing hula hoop so effortlessly, I feel jealous because it seems so fun! (plus who does not want to have a slimmer waist and killer abs?)

Today when I was at the biophysical sports building in my university, I picked up a silver hula hoop and decided that maybe I should give myself another chance. AND THAT'S WHEN THE MIRACLE HAPPENED. As I spin the hula hoop against my body, I started moving my body back and forth, not trying to think that the hula hoop will fall, I just maintain my momentum. That was the moment I realised that I have learnt how to play a hula hoop. That moment was miraculous and beyond amazing.

Do you still remember the moment when you finally learnt how to ride a bicycle when you were young? That was the nostalgic feeling I got, you have no idea how good it feels to learn something new. I guess as we grew up, we tend to avoid things that we think we are not good at. We tend to just do what we are good at, we prefer to stay in our comfort zone. Maybe we are just one try towards success, but we just give up way too early. 

Life is amazing you know, there are so many things to discover and so many skills to learn.
Perhaps I should have kept playing basketball, perhaps I should have started baking this winter break,
I feel so inspired, so refreshed, so blessed.

And the weird thing is, all of these happiness and state of contentment is all just because of a hula hoop. This Monday is starting off right and I believe that this week will be an amazing week!

Hope everyone is having a great week ahead! <3

我和呼啦圈從來就不是朋友。從小到大我嘗試過很多次但是呼啦圈最多只能夠呆在我的身上4秒。我一直都認為我不能轉呼啦圈的原因是因為我的腰和屁股太大太粗太不靈活,但是今天我在上體育課的時候突然一時興起拿起呼啦圈開始轉,奇蹟般的,我居—然—就—學—會—了。

那種感覺,就像是我六歲的時候學會如何騎自行車是一模一樣的,超懷念。我覺得當我們慢慢長大,我們開始會抵制自己去做一些我們不是很擅長的事情,像是跳舞,像是唱歌,像是彈鋼琴。然而,我們卻都忘了,現今的高手,都是從前的菜鳥練起的。我們往往放棄得太早,堅持得太少。

突然想要繼續打已經很久沒有打的籃球,
突然想要抽空學如何烘培蛋糕,
突然想要學習更多東西。

我今天很快樂,是那種“哇我今天學會了一樣東西了耶”的這種開心。
有種感覺這個星期會過的很棒很充實,期待這個星期更多好事會發生,
期待學習更多的知識,期待自己會變成一個更好的自己。

希望大家有個美好的星期!我們一起加油吧!d(`・∀・)b

Dandioy's Doodle | 我們都要成為向日葵 Be like a sunflower

✨Be like a sunflower✨
{我們都要成為向日葵}

Hi, it has been a month since I have posted here.
Let’s talk about how have I been doing these days.

There are 4 times I burst into tears because I got so angry at myself.
The first time, I misplaced my handphone and purse on the table when I was wearing my winter coat. (thank God I got them back)
The second time, I lost my student card on a bus. (it’s not a big deal but the security guards in university won’t let me in if I have no student card so it was extremely inconvenient)
The third time, I gave the bus driver 100 rubles but he forgot to give me back the balance. I tried using my broken Russian to communicate with him but he couldn’t understand me. (I felt that it was my fault for not learning Russian well enough or else this situation will be well solved)
The fourth time, this was two weeks ago, I lost my purse with my ATM bank card, student card (yes poor thing got lost again), cash and earphone.

Luckily I have friends to help me out, we’ve prayed about it and hoped that my purse will come back. I tried to be more positive about it. It’s easy to be positive when everything is well, but it’s hard to stay optimistic when everything seems to be going wrong.

Learning to maintain a good attitude is my life lesson for this month.
Life has taught me to be like a sunflower, stand firm and look at the brighter side of life. Please bear with me while I’m struggling, I’m still learning and growing. :)

A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. - Proverbs 17:22

哈咯~已經一個月多沒有發文,
今天就來說說我在俄羅斯差點被自己氣死的時候吧。
認識我的人都知道我有著把東西落東落西的壞習慣。

第一次,我在穿上寒衣的時候把錢包和手機落在桌上(但找回了);
第二次,我的學生證是在巴士上搞丟了(雖然沒找回但不是什麼大事但進出大學就變得超麻煩);
第三次,當天夜黑風高我搭巴士的時候,遞給了司機100盧布,司機好像是忘了我給多少,我用著我破爛的俄文嘗試和他溝通,想要把餘額給要回來但是他聽不懂我在說什麼,那個時候一下車我就被自己氣哭。(有可能那天的天氣很冷,下課時間很晚,心情又很鬱悶,我就因為這件事就爆發了,當時滿腦子想的是一定要把俄文學好)
第四次,就在兩個星期前我把我的錢包弄丟了,裡面有我的銀行卡、學生證(可憐的學生證又再次遭主人遺棄)、現金還有耳機。

幸好,有很多朋友都在幫我,為我祈禱找到我的錢包。
我也嘗試用著樂觀的情緒去看待這件事。
在事事順利的時候保持樂觀的心態很容易,但真正壞事發生的時候保持樂觀那才不簡單。

我在學習把自己變得更強大,強大到生活裡無謂的煩人瑣事都影響不到我。

我們都要成為向日葵,尋找生活中的一束陽光。(^_っ^)

喜樂的心乃是良藥 憂傷的靈使骨枯乾。- 箴言17:22
