This Hopi saying gets to the heart (pun intended) of dance. It is a true expression of our hearts. Maybe it’s why I’ve always been drawn to dance…the opportunity to express emotion through movement.
Some people feel uncomfortable dancing. Why? Maybe they feel like they don’t have rhythm, or are worried they’ll look foolish or fat or silly.
Well I say throw your inhibitions to the wind and get up and dance.
I challenge you to put on some music, whatever music moves you, and dance like a five year old for two minutes.
How did it feel? Is there any better way to create joy?
P.S. This post was inspired by Life is a Verb by Patti Digh. I’m only a couple of chapters in and am LOVING this book!
Post a comment to let me know how the dancing went (and what music you chose) and don’t to subscribe to the Blog for future inspiration.
