General Yuzuru Chat


Recommended Posts

One tradition in many strains of Buddhism is to dedicate the merit of one's practice to something larger than oneself -- typically, to the enlightenment of all beings. So, for instance, a practitioner will often say a few words of dedication at the end of a meditation session. But it can apply to any situation in which the practitioner might accrue merit by making a a conscious attempt to live skillfully, with wisdom and compassion.

 

I've decided that for the foreseeable future, I will dedicate the merit of my practice, in part, to Yuzu's healing and happiness. I hope that will not only bring him some small measure of goodness, but it will inspire me to live in a way that generates merit, making me a little more conscious of my actions and spurring me to live my life a little more skillfully. 

 

For me this feels like a fitting way to repay the immense gift Yuzu gives me by skating, living and existing so beautifully. He makes the world a better place in so many ways; I hope I can make my tiny piece of the world a better place in tribute to him. 

 

Any other satellites who find this concept appealing are more than welcome to borrow it. 

 

Love and solace to each and every one.

My brain doesn't want to shut up and because of that I can't fall asleep. Maybe if I write some random thoughts here, it will clear my mind and help me sleep.

-last season after nhk I didn't cry. Because I actually believed that he would be ready for nationals. This season I don't believe it so it is harder for me to process. Especially after we were so happy with SP results. But yesterday, for many hours I still didn't cry. I didn't watch FS live. I was waiting for updates. And I only watched it after a few hours because I was afraid to do that. I finally started crying after I read some tweet written by a lady journalist who tried to explain to someone what happened to Yuzuru. 

-today I started crying again when I was watching VC and they showed a crying fan. And later again, after reading Mishin's comment about Yuzuru. Some of his past comments about Yuzu weren't so nice. He didn't say anything about Yuzuru after Pyeonchang. He was sitting beside me during ladies FS in Helsinki (2 group) and his facial expression was a little bit scary. And I was annoyed by his comments after NHK about Japanese ladies etc. So when I read his nice comment about Yuzuru I started crying really hard.

-I am happy that Daniil talked with Yuzuru before VC. Even when there's a tension between Eteri's team and Brian's team. Maybe he congratulated him. Maybe he wished him to get well soon. Or maybe... he asked him if he can make a program some day for him. This thought makes me laugh. Imagine them working together, especially on music cuts :rofl2:

-I am thankful to Misha. After that instagram drama during off season I am happy that he still decided to post a supportive massage. And this time he found a solution and turned off the comments under that post. 

-I was surprised by NBC commentary. It's good that they informed viewers about Yuzuru's situation. 

-I hope that fans won't try to bother TCC skaters on their social media to get some information about Yuzuru

-I don't trust anything JSF says

-You know what makes me feel better? That we will have more chances to get updates from Brian (and maybe even Tracy) than last season. Last year, after Yuzuru injured himself, Brian only went to one competition: France with Javi. This year, he will go to France with Evgenia and Jason, GPF with at least Stephen (and probably Zhenya and Jun) and assuming that Yuzuru won't go to nationals - Russian nationals with Zhenya. Brian will arrive in France on Wednesday. We don't know where Yuzuru has gone. To Canada or to Japan. He has to get his ankle checked, and to do that, it should stop swelling. So Brian probably won't know much this week. But by the time of GPF, Yuzuru's situation should be much clearer. 3 recommended weeks of rest will pass so hopefully Brian will share if Yuzuru needs more time of rest or is it enough. There's still rehabilitation, starting to train on the ice etc. so maybe we can get another update during Russian nationals. I will feel so much better getting information directly from his team and not from people who care about tickets and sponsors (aka JSF)

 

I hope I can finally fall asleep...

 

 

I am so glad you feel better and it makes me feel better too. I just rewatch the VC, and Sakura fairy on Helsinki EX. I am so moved, again. I did the rewatch of FS yesterday, but I won't watch his program videos in CoR probably until the further information on his treatment coming out. The review of FS is just to make sure his condition during the competition, but more times would definitely influence my recovering mental status.

 

So I decide to rewatch 17 WC Hope and Legacy 100000+ during the waiting period. This one really helps me to settle down while giving me power to continue my life.

I am working while listening to hope and legacy and haru yo koi on a loop :tumblr_inline_n2pje2TPZt1qdlkyg: It gets me teary eyed but giving hope as well.. I remember how many times have he gotten through such adversaries, and I believe he will this time too :tumblr_inline_n2pjd3guzE1qdlkyg:

Not only that, he realized right away too. By the time he got up from that fall, he was already counting and thinking and marking out where he'd place the elements of an alternate FS layout. I was actually really impressed with that.

Me too! That's exactly what my hindsight tells. I was so shocked as the moment he fell and the continue negative feeling was too overwhelming to let me rethink his aftermath managements. When I recall his reactions, all the decisions he made and his honest response on his injury condition, I am pretty much sure All things are under his control; all decisions are made based on his and his team's calculation. And he is experienced in injury recovery. So we should and must trust him. That's the only thing we can do.

I just did what you did! That's what I call telepath among satellites!

What's next on the horizon? GPF is 3 weeks away? Whether he goes or not, it will be hell to check the planet everyday wringing my hands wondering if there's any updates when realistically there might be none. Even a previously filmed commercial or a sports special that is newly released would be welcomed.

I think it's better to assume that he won't go to GPF? The injury is pretty bad, even if not as bad as last season's, and I think this time Yuzu does need to take time off to heal properly.

My greedy self wants him, if World's is his goal, to just wait and heal and do not strain himself until then-drop GPF, drop JNats and drop 4CC. He needs the time.  On a positive note, he has now more time to recover than he did for the lead-up to PyeongChang. And with how things are shaping up, he might not need more than a 4S and a 4T.  Stamina has been in short supply in the men's, he just needs to go with his natural jumps and he'll probably still do fine.  Of all seasons to go easy on, this is the season.

I'm not sure there's much more I can add that hasn't already been said and I'm feeling a little down, though hopeful. So I will go with a bit of levity. Yuzu looked very smooth maneuvering onto and off of the podium on those crutches and I would say with certainty that while most of the previous night was spent dutifully icing and elevating his foot, a small portion of it was probably spent image training and practicing.....I imagine this scenario:

 

Yuzu: *crutches himself onto the couch*

Yuzu: *crutches himself onto the coffee table*

Yuzu: *crutches himself onto the toilet lid*

Mom: Please stop.

Yuzu: I don't know how high the podium will be. I need to be prepared. I mean, I've never done a medal ceremony on crutches before and I don't want to screw it up. *preparation bounce*

Mom: There'll be people to help y-- YUZURU.

Yuzu: *yeets up onto the bathroom counter*

Mom: I very much doubt the podium will be that high.

Yuzu: Oh, that one was just to see if I could.

Mom: My sister's son works in a bank.....

Now, @fyere0, tell me! DO YOU LIVE WITH YUZU?

I've been trying to avoid anything Yuzu-related the past few days since the injury. I just couldn't bear it. I couldn't understand why it had to happen again. It feels like the world is against him most of the time. 

 

Tbh, I wanted to tell him to just retire and live a happy and injury-free life. Away from haters. Away from people who drop him the moment he shows some imperfections. Because he doesn't deserve any of this. 

 

But this is a guy who skated the skate pf his life in painkillers. This is a guy who could've left and banked on his Olympic fame. This is a guy who just doesn't stop.

 

It still hurts, but I know Yuzu will come back stronger. Until then, we will be waiting patiently, lovingly, wholeheartedly.
