My friend Jillian started this happiness project where she’s dancing every day for 100 days and blogging about it/sharing on instagram. This couldn’t be more up my alley, as someone who dances to get out of my head and just let go.
Was so psyched to guest dance in one of her videos… in prom dresses to the Spice Girls, no less.
She’s really one of my favorite people and always puts me in a positive vibe when I see her.
So dance and get happy y’all.
Day 22. SPICE UP YOUR LIFE.
And this is exactly what this happiness project is doing. By the way. Just sayin’.
You know what? Since I started this little project, I’ve begun to observe people more. Creepily. Especially in social settings and especially where there is music. We never really think about it, “dancing.” Do we? It’s always just been there. But that’s it! It’s always just been there! Babies dance! Everyone does! And it’s always been such an instinctual thing right? You hear music, you are immediately inclined to move with that music. At least I am, I don’t know about you guys. But I’ve seen it with new eyes now, and it’s pretty amazing. I might go as far to say that it’s relatively mind-blowing. I laugh and am inspired by watching people on the street or at the bar where I work partake in this. My heart grows. I find myself wanting to talk to people who allow themselves to let loose. And I look back on myself, years ago, as an insecure girl who WOULD NOT DANCE! And I ask myself WHO WAS I?!
Why was that so hard? Why did I rob myself of that joy? Why was I so disconnected?
Music connects people to themselves and others in ways that we don’t even consider. It makes you move. It doesn’t matter where you are or what you’re doing or if you even speak the same language! Dancing is an F-ING UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE OF HAPPINESS AND JOY. One moves, we all move. Amiright?? I think so.
And when you have nothing else, hey, you always have dancing!!!
Which is something my friend Bianca and I talked about, which stuck with me. When you make changes in your life or are going through something hard, music and dancing can be a form of solace, a break, a time-out for self-love. A pick-me-up, and reminder, a release. HOW POWERFUL IS THAT??
And how powerful of a statement are our PROM DRESSES?!
FYI they are hard to dance in. We were worried about nip-slips. But whatever. LIFE. (There are none, by the way).
SHE’S THE BEST!! I like watching her dance. She’s so graceful. And also we have a guest puppy. And we are in her amazing office. She’s a badass and runs a PR company.
