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 so much that you want to do it as much as possible? 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.
