This past weekend I had a situation come up and turned to one of my good friends for reassurance that I could handle it. I had been there before, I knew what to do. Yet, I worried, doubted and got downright scared of the outcome.
In a moment of false bravado I boldly said, “I got the shoes. I got the dress. I am ready to dance.”
As I began to navigate the situation, she would notice my insecurity showing and would give me the new war cry. “You got the shoes. You got the dress. Time to dance.” The others around us had no idea what we were talking about and I would collapse in fits of laughter with her as I put my “dancing shoes” back on.
Although it had nothing to do with dancing and I wouldn’t know a dance shoe if I tripped over it…which I have…the saying has become a new motto to me.
It says to me that I already have everything I need to face any situation that I may come across on the “dance floor.”
I just have to decide to “dance.”
Over the weekend, I danced. I tripped a couple of times and stepped on some toes, but I was there on the dance floor with my dress and shoes.
I have decided to DANCE.
