Dance Like No One Is Watching






























Friday night I experienced what it felt like to "dance like no one is watching". I have to say it is quite the exhilarating experience. I don't think I've ever just let loose like that before, at least not when people were in the same room as me.

There is something to be said about people who dance like that all the time. They are full of so much more life, and probably joy. Just fully letting loose and being your complete self, whether you're good at dancing or not, me being the later. It really feels good!

I think back on what has held me back from really letting go like that and it has always been my confidence in my dance skills and worrying that people would judge me. But who cares! If they want to judge me that is there choice right?? When I compare the night where I've danced and just didn't care to the nights where I've danced but still worried about what others were thinking about me, I realize I had way more fun when I just let go.

I mentioned to my wise mother how I just danced as crazy as I wanted because I knew I wasn't going to see most of the people ever again, she responded the right way. She said, "Why does it matter if you're going to see them again? You should always just be yourself". AMEN! Mom you nailed it, and thanks for reminding me.


Last year I talked about remembering who we are here. I think knowing who we are is very closely linked with being ourselves. I know my confidence comes from that knowledge. 

So here is to more nights of awesome, awkward, and crazy dance moves. To just 100% being myself no matter what anyone around me is thinking. 

Who cares if my moves don't look like Beyonce's, there mine and I'll keep them :).

  3. Your on the right path Sierra. I think if you can be who you truly are, be comfortable in your own skin, then others will feel that energy and be more authentic themselves. (At least, I hope so!) Happy #NYNB :->

    1. Amen Ann! There is something special about being more authentic and then helping others feel they can be that way also.
