Savor the Compliment
Thursday, March 28, 2013
My hubby and I went to senior dancing this morning on this gorgeous sunny day. Dancing always reminds me of all the hours I spent at dances in my teens, embarrassed and disappointed that no one asked me to dance. My hubby was known as an incredible dancer in high school, whereas I got almost no experience and always thought of myself as clumsy and awkward. Of course at senior dancing age 63 makes me one of the younger participants. But nonetheless it is fun now being one of the few really fit people there.
Today a man from Canada was talking to my husband. The man asked Gary, loud enough that I could hear him, if he had found me in Kansas City. My husband looked confused. The man clarified. Isn't Kansas City where the pretty little women are from?
Now is the time to banish the insecurities and embrace the fit and healthy person I am today. And that's a compliment I am going to enjoy and savor!!
