I Hope You Dance
Thursday, June 23, 2011
I've been meaning to write this blog for over a week now and I'm finally getting to it.
Last week at Zumba, our instructor used the song, 'I Hope You Dance' (LeAnne Womack) as our cool down song. I've heard this song about a thousand times and I've always thought it was such a great message, especially if you have kids.
However, it never affected me before like it did that day. I'm going along, doing the cooldown routine and tears just start pouring out of my eyes.
I guess since I've finally been nurturing and encouraging the explorative side of me and trying things I've never done before, this song just has a whole new meaning.
The one lyric especially, 'If you get the CHOICE to sit it out, or dance....I hope you DANCE.' That's it. That's what it's all about. I've wasted so much of my life sitting it out and now, for the life of me, can't remember why.
So, please, don't sit it out. Enjoy your life, make the best of what you can and if you don't like what's in front of you, physically, emotionally, mentally, CHANGE IT! Life is too short to not drink every drop of happiness you make.
