lose yourself to dance, girl

So this is like the most random thing in the world, but right now, I am really obsessed with DANCE.


Yes, Napoleon Dynamite is always relevant.

Considering I am the graceful equivalent of a three legged Weiner dog (#poise #elegance), dancing is not something I usually attempt. But in the past few days, the Lord has answered a major prayer of mine and made me feel so free. So I don't know, I've kind of been dancing up in this place, yo.


Oh, and if you haven't already noticed, the gifs are back.


Even though I'm not busting out my wicked dance moves in front of a large crowd
(New Life Goal: join a flash mob), I am dancing more, both in spirit and in body.


"Let them praise His name with dancing and make music to Him with tambourine and harp." 
~ Psalm 149:3


Psalm 149 is kind of a wonderful passage for praise. That's definitely one I want to memorize this week. (Side Note: Verse memorization is getting a little bit easier. I've noticed that what helps me the most is asking for God's help, and keeping flash cards of verses in my car, at my desk at work, and basically everywhere else. It helps the words stick more in my mind.)



This dancing mindset really differs from the worry and anxiety that usually plague me. It's odd, even after all the insecurities I've had, dancing makes me not only more aware of, but more appreciative of my body.
Like, how cool is it that humans can dance and sing? It's just wonderful.


"And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music."
~ Friedrich Nietzsche


It's so obvious that I should be joyful before the Lord, but I feel like I often miss it. So, let's do things that help us enjoy Him, and enjoy life! Sing a song, bake a cake, paint a canvas.

Or do a little jig. 


+ Tell me about your life. What's new with everyone?

  2. I don't usually dance. XD I've done swing dancing and I'm more comfortable with partner dancing, but I feel so embarrassed to dance on my own. I'm glad you've found the confidence to do so!

    1. You're braver than I for partner dancing. I feel like I'd struggle with that even more than solo dancing, haha! Thanks for your kind words ^_^
