I have seen this little character before, but didn’t know exactly what it was or its significance. So here’s the low-down. It is called a Daruma. When you make a wish or set a goal you color in one eye of the Daruma. When that wish comes true or you achieve your goal, you color in the other eye. Also, the egg shaped figure is weighted at the bottom so it can’t stay knocked down, it will just wobble back upright. This signifies resilience and steadfastness toward your goal. Pretty Cool! This was given to Elyse by one of our members, Gay Tanaka. She said she has only used one Daruma in her life and that was for law school.
Elyse’s goal, of course, is to qualify for the CrossFit Games in July. Everyone is hoping to see a Daruma with two black eyes.
