There are shortcuts to happiness, and dancing is one of them.
All I wanted to do for my 50th birthday this past winter was to have a rock & roll dance party. So I did. It was really fun, but besides the party, the 2nd best thing about it were the weeks leading up to it when I was choosing what tunes to play from the 50s,60s,70s,80s and even 90s.
After days and days of dancing in the full length mirror next to my computer while picking my favorite dance songs (kind of like dancing with a partner..), I was primed. Then my firstborn burned four CDs of the music and we were ready to let the mid-winter partay begin.
The 3rd best thing about the party lives on. I still listen to the music from it all the time while driving around, making dinner, or just hanging around the house. I've been dancing for nine months now and I don't have any plans to stop.
Dancing really is a shortcut to happiness.
Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance. ~Dave Barry
Or sit down and do it :-)
Forget about what you look like, or what anyone thinks, and just have fun.
Life is too short to be self-conscious don't you think?
