People ask me all the time what do you love about acro, or why do I love it so much. I’ve never really known how to answer that question. It’s different. It makes me happy. I just love it? I usually end up saying that it makes me feel free. But I’ve realized recently what it really is about acro that I love so much. .
I’ve mentioned on here a few times in the last few months that things have been crazy. Transitions with jobs, friends, life, housing, work, etc. things have been crazy and I haven’t had much time to slow down. I’ve put a lot of work into hosting this scavenger hunt and hoping people have a good time. Before spending all day today moving. .
But yesterday I got to slow down. I remembered the long summer nights when I first found acro. Playing in the grass, watching the sunset, taking pretty pictures, laughing and gaining new skills. Doing all the things I love with people who enjoy what I do. .
A few days ago, about two hours after someone canceled on the scavenger hunt, leaving one team with one less person, I had someone message me asking if it was too late. He said “also please be my new best friend because I need someone to train with”. I also enjoy asking strangers to be my new best friend and need a consistent partner to train with. .
I love that in acro it’s acceptable to speak your mind even if others would have found it weird. I love that I got to spend an amazing day with friends followed by a night of running around Cincinnati taking pictures and convincing them to go to the park for sunset. Because I miss the nights when I could slow down and just enjoy nature, the colors in the sky, and the people around me. I realized I haven’t taken much time to stop and breathe lately, enjoy where I am and just be. I can’t wait for the rest of summer and to see what new things we can create. .
Sure, last night I should have gone home to finish packing, but then I would have missed out on one more beautiful night that acro has brought to me. Every adventure so far has been unique, and that is why I love acro. ❤️
