~~When you dance to your own rhythm, life taps its toes to your beat.~~ Terri Guillenets
My 14 year old crawled under a van last night at Wal-Mart to rescue a little dog who had been wandering the parking lot, scared and lost. Jake spent about 20 minutes trying to coax the little thing out rather than simply grabbing the dog and scaring him even further. I stood there, watching my boy with a mixture of pride and awe. He is a delightful combination of little boy, young man, and tender heart.
These are my moments. The moments that I thank God for. The moments that make me glad to be alive. Nothing grand....nothing financial....nothing newsworthy to anyone but me. I adore watching my family live life on their terms. I enjoy feeling like this is what my life is about.
You don't have to be a celebrity. You don't have to be outrageous. You don't have to have glamor. But you do have to dance to your own rhythm. You have to do things that make your soul sing. You have to be true to your spirit. You have to live your life with honesty.
None of us were meant to be smokers. None of us were meant to be addicts. None of us were meant to waste our time, our talents, our lives smoking in a corner, alone and forgotten.
Step out from that side of you that wants to remain hidden. Step out from that addictive thinking. Step out from those unhealthy habits that shrink your shine.
Live your truth. Enjoy those moments that make your soul sing. Seek out those who make your heart sparkle. And do those things that allow you to feel complete.
That is what life is truly about. The world offers us a ballroom and it is up to us to dance to our own rhythm. Allow it to happen. Revel in your dance. And life will tap its toes to your beat.
