I woke up this morning feeling like there wasn't a care in the world and that I really feel like dancing today. It's been a while since I REALLY felt like dancing. That's kind of sad though because for a year, dancing was how I dealt with depression. I think if I wouldn't have stopped, the last few months would have gone easier. I just really had dancing by myself though.
But last night I made a few friends at a Church mission group. It felt good to talk about how God has really blessed my family this last week. And a lot of the women got to know me and now want to hang out. Some of them said they want to find time to work out and I said to come work out with me because the kids can be in the same room as us and play around while we dance or do whatever. And if we want to be on the equipment, we can put the kids on the racquetball court where theres nothing to hurt them but walls and we can easily hear them.
I really feel like this wall is slowly peeling away from me. I can breathe a little better.
And I think instead of Hustle I'm going to do a Christian Danceton (Dance-a-ton=hip hop cardio dance class). As much as I like Hustle, the music that comes with it can't always be done in a child friendly setting and it's not easy to switch in other music with it. So I'm going to be coming up with a cardio dance to "Push Play- NY2LA". It's an old song but I love it.
And I'm going to start a missional community in my Church where we can get together once a week and do this class. The church provides the rooms and everyone can bring friends if they want. Maybe I can get 2 other people to teach it with me.
