It’s in our DNA to move. Babies ‘know’ this. As soon as they can, they want to move, to crawl, to stand, to walk, and yes, to dance…
Have you ever seen small children at an open air concert? If they like the music, it’s almost impossible to prevent them from dancing!
At some point a lot of adults lose this joy. It feels too revealing, they feel too clumsy or shy, etc. The possibility of dance goes dormant in their lives.
The same is true about how some people live their lives. They get ‘stuck’ in one place, lose their ‘joy’, and feel too clumsy or shy about showing the world who they really are. They forget how to ‘move’ in their own life.
As a ballroom dancer and personal life coach, I know that life is like a dance. While everyone needs regular periods of silence and stasis to recharge, we also need to rediscover our passion, purpose and power so we can move effectively in our own life. We need to know and follow our own steps in order to dance.
We need to cultivate the openness of toddlers at that open air concert and learn to listen to our own inner music, to experiment with movement, to devise our own steps, to try, to be willing to succeed on our own terms.
My personal and life coaching will help you move into and through your life with greater flow and joy. If there are dreams in your life that have “gone dormant”, rest assured that like dancing, these dreams are still in your DNA. And they can be reawakened and “moved” into reality…When you remember the magic and joy of dancing, imagine that same joy flowing into all the other areas of your life.
Start ‘dancing’ through your own life…
