Today I had my second last Zumba class for the year and, as usual, it was a high energy, high octane and full on hour of fantastic music and moves. But I nearly didn’t show up. I was feeling tired and unmotivated and literally had to drag myself into the lesson. Sometimes that’s how I feel about life.
Turns out it was just what I needed. I left feeling positive and energised, motivated and ready to tackle life again. Sometimes we just need that little kick-start to our day.
I bought a gift book for someone the other day. It’s a Snoopy book that could have been written just for me. It has feel good quotes about living life to the full and, of course, dancing.
So, for all those Snoopy fans I’ve posted a few light-hearted and happy words taken from the book. I hope they’ll put a smile on your face, in what can sometimes be a crazy time of year.
“Mix a little foolishness in with your serious plans. It is lovely to be silly at the right moment. -Horace
“The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it and join the dance” -Alan Watts
“There are short-cuts to happiness, and dancing is one of them.” -Vicki Baum
“Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we’re here we should dance”. -Proverb
And never forget …
“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”
