Where focus goes, energy flows!
It may take a while to control your roll, but if you stick to it, it's yours to keep forever!
As you get more and more into a particular subject - in this case roller skating - there is a system in the brain called the Reticular Activitating System (RAS), which is responsible for boosting your focus and awareness on that subject. Anything else will be filtered out or given lower priority.
For instance, in terms of survival (your main brain's focus), your RAS makes you respond to your name, when someone calls you out in a crowded space. It's your RAS that makes you spot anything new or different in any expected pattern or situation. And of course your RAS also constantly responds to anything that affects your safety.
Now roller skating can be a serious threat to your safety, especially as a beginner. But after giving it a fair try -preferably under professional guidance- there is a good chance you might convince your brain that the threat can be controlled and there's some fun to it as well. From that moment on, your RAS will be your best partner in your soulful roller skate journey. Any information regarding (rhythm) roller skating will get to you faster and your learning curve will change massively for the better.
So be nice to your RAS, for it's taking care of you and has the power to make you a funky rhythm skater!
