I'm telling myself that I will write more.
I've changed the tag line. I've made
1. giving up diet pepsi
2. giving up ice cream
3. giving up shopping
4. fixing my hair every day
5. packing my lunch...
that's right, BIG goals (feel free to laugh) that are already forgotten because I realized that I, most likely, would be 3 hours in and out the window they'd go.
I'm left with one that I'm holding on to. I've decided that, every day, I will dance.
Dancing- letting go, understanding that whatever it is that's happening right now can wait 15 minutes while we turn up the music and boogie.
Realizing and accepting that life is hard. That I can't make it easy. That I can't always make it better.
Understanding that I have so much to be thankful for. That God has a plan.
Knowing that our time here is short- that tomorrow is not guaranteed. That we will lose people we love.
Deciding that, while we are here, we will hold tight to each other.
Will this dancing make life easy? no. Will it make life make sense? no.
Dancing will remind me that I am alive, that I have a body that moves and a heart that is beating and that I have a purpose- that God has a plan for me. We will dance... and you're welcome to join us.
