"But, I Can't Dance."

How many of you avoid dancing because you subscribe to the belief that, โ€œ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏโ€™๐˜ต ๐˜ฌ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ ๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ฅ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ค๐˜ฆโ€ or โ€œ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถโ€™๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ๐˜ต ๐˜ข ๐˜ฅ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ค๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ?โ€

โ €
For as long as I can remember, that was the exact story I kept telling myself. Dancing felt awkward, uncomfortable, and the thought perpetually playing in my head would be, โ€œ๐˜ ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏโ€™๐˜ต ๐˜ฌ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ ๐˜ธ๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ต ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ง๐˜ถ๐˜ค๐˜ฌ ๐˜โ€™๐˜ฎ ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฐ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ.โ€
โ €
And to a certain degree, I still donโ€™t. But the difference between now and then isnโ€™t that I know how to dance with these fluid, choreographed motionsโ€”itโ€™s that I let go; let go of what I think Iโ€™m supposed to look like and let go of how others might perceive me.
โ €
You donโ€™t have to be a dancer to move your body to a song, booโ€”๐๐š๐ง๐œ๐ข๐ง๐  ๐ข๐ฌ ๐Ÿ๐จ๐ซ ๐ž๐ฏ๐ž๐ซ๐ฒ๐จ๐ง๐ž.
โ €
All you have to do is move your body in whatever way feels right and sometimes it might look weird and silly and thatโ€™s perfectly okay.
โ €
Dancing is a beautiful way to express yourself, foster a deeper connection with your body, and most importantly bring you to the present moment.
โ €
Do it. Dance. Freely. Habitually. Itโ€™s good for your soul.
