I Dance

Dancing awakens my body and fills me with a passion. A passion that reminds me I can accomplish anything. I want to bottle this energy of positivity and drink it all day long. My intention for 2020 is to put this passion into everything I do. Dancing helps me do this.

At this stage of life, I know me. I know what works and what doesn’t. I am not good at long term goals. I get lost in the process. I know where I want to be. If I don’t see results or progress I surrender to the beliefs in my mind. For this reason, I set shorter goals so I can see results.

My goals are daily. I slow down and examine every situation, asking myself, “Did you apply passion?” “What energy are you feeling?” When I give my all I can see the results. I think more clearly and my mind is open. I feel alive and productive. I am flooded with joy.

Will I be bursting with passion every day? No. And that is okay. I will take that same passion and apply it to my energy for that day. If I need to cry and work through negative energy I will cry with all the passion inside me. I will enjoy the process.

Most days I am a happy person. I am one of those happy morning people. I get lots of glares as I cartwheel into work (not literally, but it is how I feel inside). Passion for my day flows into my work and life. I want to focus my passion more and use it for the greater good.

Each day is a gift. I start my day with quiet stretching. I let my mind go. I have my routine memorized. I could stretch in my sleep. This is a relaxing beautiful process that wakes my muscles.

Next, I turn on my music. I dance. With each movement, passion takes over. I am strong, smart and capable of great things. I am a gift. A unique soul ready for life and a fabulous day.

Ahh… I am there, the day is mine. This is what I love about dance. I can close my eyes and recall all the emotions and energy I experience as I dance. Just like that, the passion is there… I can bottle it after all!
