If you are a private client of mine you will hear me talk about dance to the point of pure exhaustion. I think this may paint some picture of me as this amazing talented dancer… au contraire!
I am not one to ever speak negatively about myself so let’s just say that I have rhythm, and we will leave it at that. Dancing for me is not about burning calories, sweating or looking sexy (trust me!). It’s about moving past the point of feeling silly and awkward and completely stepping into who you are. It’s about connecting to the body on every level. Dance comes from deep inside of us and you simply can’t think your way through it.
I was asked by an inspirational jewelry designer to come up with a phrase so she can design a piece for me and my business, so many phrases popped into my head I didn’t know where to begin. “When all else fails, dance.” It means so much more than move your body, and if you don’t believe me start your day with your favorite song and dance before you do anything else. Dancing allows you to escape reality and dream. It makes you laugh at yourself and most importantly it makes you feel incredible.
I challenge each and every one of you who stopped to read this to find some time in each of your days to connect to a song. Whether you dance in your chair or stand up and shake it out it makes no difference. Maybe you simply sing at the top of your lungs. Use every bit of music to make even the worst of days the best. With music, it doesn’t matter how much money is in the bank, how much you weigh or whether you are single, it is the cure for all.
Dance your way to your ideal body and stay tuned for this beautiful piece of jewelry to capture this message around your neck or wrist for those times it becomes too hard to remember.
