Find the thing that you love and do it as much as possible.
I love a lot of things. Of all the things I love there is nothing I love more than dancing. And when the music moves me, I dance. It usually doesn’t matter where I am. I’ve danced while standing in line at the grocery store. I’ve stopped my car to get out and dance around the car with a friend to “When Doves Cry” by Prince. I’ve danced “naked in my living room” as Alanis Morrisette recommends in the song “You Learn”.
Besides dancing by myself, I dance with a partner as a ballroom dancer. I have been doing this for 18 years. Ballroom dance adds socialization and mental exercise to the physical exercise. Plus, I get the opportunity to wear beautiful outfits and dresses. I love that! I met my loving husband at the dance studio. I love that! The people at the dance studio have been my support and my family. It is the most positive social group that I have ever experienced. I love that! Another type of dance that I really enjoy is line dancing. I don’t do it much now though. Perhaps I will find a way to get that into my life too.
Just Dance on the Wii game console is what I do every day for overall fitness. I really hate to exercise. It is so boring and repetitive. Thank goodness for Just Dance. I have Just Dance 1 – 4 and 2014 – 2017. I plan on gifting myself 2018 for Christmas unless I can convince my husband to gift it to me.
If I couldn’t dance I’d be really depressed. For mostly financial reasons I couldn’t take dance lessons for a few years. I held onto the hope that I’d be able to do it again in the future. As time marched on and I continued to recover my life that hope became reality. I am so thankful that that is true today.
I plan to keep on dancing as much as possible for as longs as possible. What thing do you love that way? I strongly believe that finding every opportunity to do that thing that you love every day of your life is essential to a happy life. Try it. You might find what I believe to be true.
