Dance Like Nobody’s Watching!

Dance like nobody’s watching; love like you’ve never been hurt.

Sing like nobody’s listening; live like it’s heaven on earth.” –  Mark Twain

I’ve been having a tough time lately.  You may have noticed that I haven’t been posting ~ or maybe you haven’t!  But I think I’m back again.  I had to take a break and just grieve, transition through the rest of the stages of sadness so that I could find freedom again to be me.  With the help of my family, friends, loved ones and you, my dearest blog village (thank you all!), I think…I’m Baaack!

I found the above quote awhile back, had it in my drafts with the ballerina pic (I used to dance ballet for years!) and because it beckoned to me today, here I am!

I’ve been changing a lot lately ~ finding that ol’ spitfire that lurks deep inside.  You know the one that you were before the responsibilities of life began dragging you down.  Before the hustle and bustle of paying bills, worrying about whatever, balancing work, family, marriage and thinking about everyone but yourself.  Do you know what I mean?  Are you with me?

Well, with the beginning of Inner Hotshot University, inner-hotshot-university I began slowly changing ~ stretching out of my comfort zone, trying to eat the frog everyday today-is-your-day and I thought I was doing well until I had a little setback of grief.  a-full-year-of-sadness

Instead of pushing aside the grief and just forging on which I’ve done a thousand times before, I allowed myself to take some time and feel it, be with it and move through it instead of putting it on the back burner to sizzle for another few weeks.  It’s been one of the best decisions of my life!

I feel freer now to be me if that’s possible.  Not that anyone else but me was limiting my life.  Isn’t that a kicker?  I realized that I LIMIT MY LIFE!

Wowza ~ have you ever had that epiphany?  I feel like I just had a V8 ~ including the smacking my own forehead in disbelief!

So today, I want you to enjoy that feeling of freedom with me! 

Take a moment and turn up the radio/stereo/iPod and…

Dance Like Nobody’s Watching!

Doesn’t it feel like freedom?

Shine On!

P.S.  I’m throwing the roses to you!
