Well I wish I knew a better way to say it, cause this is probably going to sound really cliche to some people, but really I think yo-yo can be whatever you want or need it to be . At the end of the day it’s an inanimate object, a little toy that spins at the end of a string.
Whatever it means to you is whatever it means, and you know more than likely it’ll be different things at different times just like the seasons in life. When I was younger it was a great way to have and distract myself from some dark times in my life, and then things got a little better, by then I was really into it just having fun, learning at my own slow pace. Then life took another turn and I didn’t have the time and money for extra things, I slowly stopped learning and it I wasn’t buying anything new or learning anything new but I still always had at least one to play with.
Now that I got back into it, it’s a been a great tool for taking a break from the daily stresses, work, paying bills and other responsibilities. There’s been a few times recently I was having a bad day, in a bad mood, and I landed something new and it completely improved my mood and day. I also have an overactive mind at night which can make going to sleep difficult at times, I tend to always be thinking a lot, and sometimes throwing for a little bit before bed helps quiet my thoughts while I just enjoy living in the moment . Of course sometimes it’s just a great way to kill boredom, especially if I’m waiting for my girlfriend to get ready .
All this is just an example though, like I said in the beginning, whatever you want it to be. Cheers!
