Twenty Things We Should Say More Often (Part 22)

say 22

Today we are going to talk about a bonus thing to say on our list of things we should say more often.  Every great Top 20 list is even better if there is a 21st thing.

Let’s dance.

This may seem a little silly, but is it really?  Try to think back to when you were a little kid.  When you were really happy, you most-likely would just spontaneously dance.  It was cute and everyone probably clapped when you did.  Somewhere along the line, we have lost that.  Why?  Maybe we consider it to be undignified to just break down into a few dance moves, but why do we think that?  Who decided that?  I think dancing is awesome and to be honest, if I saw someone break into dance moves in public, I would think that was totally cool and that the person had a lot of guts.

I think that we try to keep our joy contained inside ourselves too much.  I think it is time that we start letting our joy shine a bit more.  I love watching flash mob clips on You Tube.  What is most interesting to me is the people who happen to be there and have no idea what is going on at first.  They just stare in amazement.  If you watch them closely though, many of them will start to move and even dance along with the others.  That is what makes the flash mobs so powerful and moving.

God created us to dance when we feel joy in our hearts.  It is man who has tried to stifle this instinct deep within ourselves.  It’s time to let that deep inner desire back out.  Let’s dance!  Who knows, if you are willing to dance, maybe someone else will join in.  When your joy pours out of you, it often lands on someone else and they will be swept up in the joyous moment themselves.

Our assignment this week is the hardest one yet.  It will be a challenge, especially if you are a really self-conscious person.  When you are feeling a great sense of joy in your heart, I challenge you to break out into a little dance jig.  You can do it in private to start with, but I really want you to try to do it in front of at least one other human being.  Keep it as spontaneous as possible and see what joy you can spread around.  It is impossible to be depressed while you are dancing.

About wmarsau

Most of the people who visit this blog already know me so it is kind of pointless to try to describe my life in this short little blurb. What is the purpose of this blog is the question. Over the course of this last year I have been exposed to some amazing people and have made personal development an important focus of my life. Being successful, not by the world's standards, but by God's has become my main focus. Mainly, I want to work to develop myself as a person who is kinder, reaches out to help those in need, and truly makes a difference in this world. To this end I am constantly reading and am exposed to so many differnet things along the way. These have been amazing and it is helping me grow so much. Then I started to think, "Why am I being so selfish?" You need to share with others these amazing things you are learning and being exposed to. That is where this blog comes into play. As I am reading and experiencing things that are truly amazing and life changing, I will be posting them on this blog. Obviously, I will not be able to post everything in it's entirity, but I will be summarizing them and letting you know the source of the article or book they come from so you can check them out later if you wish. I want this blog to be a place where you can go to often and be inspired and leave here with a smile on your face. I will be covering all kinds of different topics dealing with success and personal development. Topics like taking action, relationships, living to your potential, reinventing yourself, finances, leadership, presenting, goal setting, time management, etc. I will also be occasionally including topics on cooking, music, and gardening because they are special interests of mine. As a little disclaimer, I have given my life to the Lord and he is #1 in my life. I am his servant and everything I do in life is for his glory. With that being said, religion influences all areas of my life. There will be references to God in this blog because I can't seperate God from this or any other area of my life. I want you to know that if you do not believe in God, that is fine. That is your choice. This blog is open to anyone who wants to better their life. I will not be trying to influence or pressure anyone into having a relationship with the Lord from this site. Please don't feel uncomfortable. You can just read the portions of the blog that you wish to. I am inviting you to go on a journey with me. We will learn together to be the kind of people we were designed to be. Anyone can make a difference in this world, but it starts%
