I don’t remember dancing …

Did we dance on Tuesday?  I don’t think we danced on Tuesday …

It isn’t an insignificant omission, is the thing.  Because life really IS a dance and if we let the silliness fall off our cracker even once, we could be setting ourselves up for a lifetime of resting bitch face.  Yeah, see, we meant to have fun but we forgot.  And then our faces got bored with smiling and now we feel powerless to, you know, like, fix any of that.

Seriously.  Okay, the rules have changed then — we’ll just dance ANY old day and preferably EVERY day, and even if we happen to forget once in a while, RBF won’t have time to set in!  It’s important, and I’m thinking this could be a breakthrough.  Register your opinion in comments!

    “Life’s A Dance”

    When I was fourteen I was fallin’ fast
    For a blue-eyed girl in my homeroom class.
    Tryin to find the courage to ask her out
    Was like tryin’ to get oil from a water spout.
    What she would’ve said, I can’t say.
    I never did ask then she moved away.
    I learned something from my blue-eyed girl:
    sink or swim, you gotta give it a whirl.

    Life’s a dance, you learn as you go.
    Sometimes you lead, sometimes you follow.
    Don’t worry ’bout what you don’t know,
    life’s a dance, you learn as you go.

    The longer I live the more I believe
    You do have to give if you wanna receive.
    There’s a time to listen, a time to talk.
    And you might have to crawl even after you walk.
    Had sure things blow up in my face,
    Seen the longshot win the race.
    Been knocked down by the slammin’ door.
    Picked myself up and came back for more.

    Life’s a dance
    Life’s a dance
    Life’s a dance
    Take a chance on love
    Life’s a dance
    you learn as you go

    True self-actualization comes from belief and listening to that inner voice. We walk our journey with the baggage we create and maintain. Daily inspiration is obtainable if we continue to strive 😊

      Strive isn’t my favorite word when connected to things of the spirit, Emma, but I know what you’re saying. It can take a long time to recognize and trust our inner voice, so we do tend to create baggage while we’re on our way. Ditching it is the key, in that case. 😎
