I have a confession to make. Get ready. Here it comes… I DANCE!
Hmm you’re probably thinking – What’s so unusual about that? We all dance every now and then. Some of us enjoy it more than others but we all do it.
So here’s another important fact that will help you see my situation more clearly. I dance in public. Again “What’s so unusual?”. It’s the place and circumstances in which I do it. I dance instead of walking or running. Others at the same time might be walking or running. No, not me!
What makes me feel so energised? Music that I listen to. Hearing my favourite tune and being at the same time in some form of motion lead to this extra wave of energy. I feel the rhythm and I just want to dance. Having experienced it a couple of times, one day I thought “Why not? So what if nobody else does it”. Rhythm is a dancer, RIGHT?
A while ago this FANTASTIC video emerged online and immediately went viral. This woman in Eastleighs became an internet sensation because everyone noticed that she was in fact a “dancing queen” at the bus stop.
When I watched it for the first time I thought “What’s the big deal?” I do the same all the time! There is a natural sense of connection and solidarity I feel with this woman. We are both dancing queens and we can’t help it. I tried but I truly can’t. The urge to dance is stronger and actually I’m happy about it. Whoever online didn’t think this lady was awesome clearly has not paid enough attention to her dance moves. She is a professional public dancer! “Hang in there sister because you ROCK!”
Music is what makes me come alive! Music is and has always been a major part of my life. This is my passion and it adds so much quality to my life. I listen to music not only to relax. Music energises me, inspires me and brings back my motivation and drive. It is an integral part of my day. I have this amazing sense of positivity and eagerness when I listen to my favourite song. I am an urban ballerina and I don’t care what anybody says. Why on earth would I even try to contain it inside just because I’m in a public place?
What makes you feel this way? What is the rhythm of your life? Do you have a passion that brings joy and excitement to your life? So go and do it! Be mindful in the moment and let yourself truly enjoy the experience and if you can – share it with the world. It’s one of the greatest gifts you can offer yourself and others.
If you haven’t discovered what makes you come alive yet, you can borrow my passion for now. So next time when you walk down the Sandymount Strand in Dublin look around and if you see me join in the dance!
