Why don't I dance like I used to?
Where's the time that I used to have to let loose, and just let the music move me?
When did my body get so TIRED!?
Will my husband take me to Ballroom dance classes again?
I have noticed that in being a "responsible" adult I have irresponsibly let go of some things that I need to help me cope with life. My default rituals I had set-up to help me feel happy and FREE! (Notice how I didn't say Young. I did that deliberately to let you all know that its the sense of FREE SPIRITEDNESS that I miss the most about my youth, and that's about it!) I love, Love, LOVE being an adult in every other way. But I the more"TO DO'S" that consume my life the less time I have for my de-stressing rituals (singing, dancing, playing sports, & writing in my journal). *THANK GOODNESS I had these rituals in my youth, or else my daughter Caydi might be 14 right now, instead of 7 ;) I'm just saying!*
I REALLY MISS & really enjoy these different sanity hobbies, and feel that now in my life they are more important than EVER!! I think that all 2 of us, (So far that's me and you, Eileen Sis:) need to try to reconnect with one of those FREEDOM RITUALS that help us recapture a bit of ourselves that made us feel happy and free! What do you say to my challenge? LET's MAKE 2010 a year to amalgamate the BEST of our YOUTHFUL selves with the BEST of our MODERN selves to make the BEST of OURSELVES that we can BE!! And I am starting by getting back into DANCING!!
