So You Think You CAN'T Dance

I hear it all the time, I can’t dance! I have 2 left feet, I’m a disaster on the dance floor, etc, etc.

I can relate! Not about dance, but about other things like singing and painting and chemistry and business and marketing……. All of these things were activities I never thought I could do. They just weren’t me and what came naturally.

Well guess what. Doing what doesn’t come naturally can actually be amazingly fulfilling. That’s what I discovered when I went back to school to upgrade my sciences so I could study massage Therapy. Chemistry and biology were the farthest thing from my reality, but once I conquered that limited belief about myself, I knew that anything was possible.

Singing; that was another one that always intimidated me. Now I howl my heart open any chance I get because I know that the sound of my soul has its own unique charm even if I don’t sound like Celine Dion.

So when it comes to dance, one thing that I was blessed with ease and aptitude with since the beginning, I am particularly empathetic when I hear others express their fears and hesitations. I know what it’s like to think “I can’t do it, I’ll be embarrassed, there is a right way and I’ll screw up, if anyone saw me, I’ll feel like an idiot”. I know what it’s like to believe there is a right way and a wrong way and I will never have the skill necessary to do it the way it’s meant to be done.

Well what if there isn’t just one way, what if there is only your way? What if your way is the right way because it’s your way and that’s what makes it divine and wonderful? Or the contrary, what if we all did it the same way and it looked good but didn’t really feel very authentic? Would that serve any purpose other than to make us feel even more alone because we are further from the truth of our own unique dance or voice or………way?

So does that make you think you CAN dance? I hope so, but now it’s time to stop thinking and start dancing! So just frickin dance it.

Happy Dancing!

1 day post dental surgery and I’m thanking the heavens that I had this done in 2010 instead of decades ago. You see, I’m a bit of a chicken when it comes to pain. Yes, even us spiritual women sometimes doubt that the Divine Goddess is out there taking care of us.

Not only that, how many of us get to have our mothers come with us to the dentist all day? Being in Montreal visiting my mother has been really wonderful on many levels. And since she loves to mother me, as all mothers do, it has been a win for us both!
Today we are relaxing post op, staying sheltered from the freezing weather. We played a game of scrabble and now we are cuddling up for a matinee in her bed having fun with all the new channels! I still can’t chew so I’m enjoying mum’s chicken soup.
Life is good!
