Dance Like No One Is Watching


dance_like_no_one_is-70704

Isn’t that just a great quote? I think it is. It reminds me that life isn’t about the day-to-day grind. It’s about enjoying every moment and living life to the fullest.

Here’s the thing…

Have you ever actually danced like no one is watching or sang like no one is listening?

Truth is, most of us are faking it. Sometimes it’s just really hard to be positive. I think I’ve found a solution though.

Two weeks ago I was having a horribly stressful week. It was almost time for finals, so professors were piling everything on us and it was too much to handle. Lets just say I had a complete meltdown. Instead of doing nothing, I did something about it. I decided to blast my two favorite songs; Fun’s “Some Nights” and Florence’s “Shake it out”. That is literally what I did… I shook it out.DANCEINTHERAIN

My roommates were gone, the sun was shining through the windows in my kitchen, and I danced. I danced like no one was watching. I felt completely absurd doing this, but honestly it worked. My mood did a complete 180. You just can’t be in a bad mood when you’re acting silly, its impossible. Especially when you decide your dog is going to be your dance partner, where you hold her over your head and spin in circles… I think I scared her…

To my readers, I give you this challenge. The next time you read an inspirational saying, try living what it says. Put the words into action. Your results might surprise you.
