I've decided that I need to dance more.
I've started tapping again with a class at Westminster. It is taught by a lady that is in a tap company in SLC. After talking to her and having a private class with her, my heart was giddy with syncopated rhythms. The next week I sat down to talk to her and asked her, "Honestly, how far am I away from being at the level of tapping in a company." She doesn't think it is far away, and invited me to come to the company class.
So tonight I find myself searching for more dance classes, aiming to dance 3-4 times/week during the winter.
I also find myself trying to find ways to stay motivated for fitness through the winter. It always gets hard when I don't have races coming up and my motivation starts to dwindle..... but then I start finding facebook groups and blogs about all these wonderfully fit and perfectly developed women. It motivates me, and depresses me all at the same time.
I've been reading these amazing books lately, they have honestly changed my life. I have been doing a lot of journaling and assignments to analyze and address some things in my life and today one of my assignments was to make a list of things that nurture me (other than food) and do at least one of those things daily.
You know what was the top of my list? Dancing.
So there ya have it. I need to dance more. I need to let my soul sing. I need to let me feet beat it out.
Then come home, love on the dogs and take a bath.... nurture, nurture and nurture.
