The International Society of Hopscotch

What is your bravery today?

The thing about the International Society of Hopscotch is that it isn't really about the hopscotch. Except it is.

Here's where it gets tricky. Let me explain...

If you allow yourself to get sucked into the idea of playing a game that involves hopping, you've already won.

There is a chance you don't even have to actually play Hopscotch to reap the benefits of having a Hopscotch mindset.

Hopping on one foot is a little test of bravery. You must convince yourself to shift your weight from two feet to one foot. You must trust your body to make a million little decisions so you won't fall down.

It's hard to fathom how many precise calculations and adjustments your body makes before, during and after you hop.

Hopping is a little miracle, actually. You are flying, just a little bit, every time you jump, just before you land.

How can you fly a bit, here and there, a split second at a time, without leaving the ground? What is your Hopscotch today?

What does bravery mean to you?
