i Choose 2 Dance

My hope in sharing my journey it that it challenges others to LIVE without limits and be who they are authentically created to be.

Life Is About Choices.  It’s your life celebrate it!  CHOOSE TO DANCE.

Over the holidays I received a Facebook message from GOD!        No, Really!             There is a message service on Facebook, which delivers messages that say; Today GOD wants you to know…  My message and I will paraphrase said, “Be yourself. Stop playing around. Do what you are meant to do even if you have to start small”. 

You would have to know me to understand why that message is really funny.  I will just say, if anyone in the world is attempting to live a purpose driven life, it’s me.  And in regards to thinking small really, again NOT GUILTY!  However; ones big thinking does not give one the ability to fulfill those big thoughts. That comes from God and plain ol’ Hard work!

Today I decided to start the process of some plain ol hardwork.   I returned to school to complete a degree majoring in Dance and Theatre.  Please understand that I am double the age of most of my classmates and I plan to dance, really!  So this morning I decided to get out my Leo and tights and my dance dress to cover all the bumps and roles, which will not exist by the end of this class.  My daughter who also dances said to me when I showed her what I planned to wear, for her approval, your teacher is probably not going to let you wear that. Referring to the dance dress/covert operations cover-up.  I understand the point for wearing a Leo and tights. It is so ones instructor can see exactly what the body is doing and make corrections. However, I was determined to cover up just a’we bit more, lol!  

And in my mental processing center I have already programmed the success of this journey.  So no matter what happened today, I would make it a good day!            

I got dressed, packed my gear and I went to school this morning with a confidence that I am on purpose and that I am physically, mentally and emotionally equipped to do what is necessary to be ME authentically. So I wasn’t ashamed of my arms that wave good-by sometime even after I have stop waving and I wasn’t concerned that I’m older, or about what anyone would think and I HAD FUN and I learned something and its just my first day!  Our Lives are a gift meant to be shared and celebrated and no matter what happens, I CHOOSE TO DANCE!
