Dance YOUR Dance

Yesterday I was talking with a friend about being honest in who are in what we put out and give to the world.  It came from a topic of social media but has been on my mind all week.

Somehow in our conversation I connected the way I dance to the way I live my life and share who I am.  I own the fact that I’m not a good dancer, but I love music, the way it makes my body feel and want to move.  I let the joy of it take over. I see humor and can laugh while doing it.  Just ask my kids…my daughter thinks it’s the best thing to video me and send to her friends while I’m rocking out.  The thing is that I do it from that place of honesty–no pretending.  And, when I do others can’t help but join in—either dancing silly, laughing or smiling.

This ties into my life as I am surrounded by people who accept me for me in my honesty. I can be mad, sad, or happy–I can share my fears and doubts and they’re there, not trying to fix me but walking with me in love and friendship.  And, because I’m open with who I am it allows them the space and trust to do the same.

In honor of Robin Williams I wanted to share a monologue from his movie Jack.

“I don’t have very much time these days so I’ll make it quick. Like my life. You know, as we come to the end of this phase of our life, we find ourselves trying to remember the good times and trying to forget the bad times, and we find ourselves thinking about the future. We start to worry , thinking, “What am I gonna do? Where am I gonna be in ten years?” But I say to you, “Hey, look at me!” Please, don’t worry so much. Because in the end, none of us have very long on this Earth. Life is fleeting. And if you’re ever distressed, cast your eyes to the summer sky when the stars are strung across the velvety night. And when a shooting star streaks through the blackness, turning night into day… make a wish and think of me. Make your life spectacular. I know I did.”

The tip for this week is to dance your dance….share you with the us.

Message from the Labyrinth

Yesterday while visiting Harmony Farm (one of the most peaceful, beautiful places around our area) I decided to visit the labyrinth.

I asked for whatever message I was to receive.

As I was walking along I at first kept my head down, intent on receiving the message and being slow and deliberate in my walk. But, I wanted to move– to skip, walk fast, stop and take in the sun and to do a tree pose while letting everything soak in. So I did–and, it felt wonderful.

As I was allowing play, fun and total spontaneous action the words came to me….

Live it. Love it. BE It.

It took a few minutes to realize that “it” is Life.

I always focus on my business–

How can I grow it?
What really is my purpose?
How can am I to connect with the people I’m supposed to support?

I get tied up in all of these thoughts, trying to figure out the when, how and why that I keep my head down to so many other things in my world. I forget to go at my own pace and remember that I can change things up anytime I feel like it. I forget to live my life. To love my life. To BE my life. When everything that we do, who we are is how we walk in life.

How do you live your life? Love it? BE it?
