Some days we get the joy and some days sorrow. Today has definitely been a lot of the joy! I went to another private lesson and we danced the Rumba Promenade, Waltz, FoxTrot, and Jitterbug! I didn't dance with Charlie today but instead with Antonio, but Charlie was there cheering me on as Antonio twirled me around the dance floor! Both are great and a lot of fun, but I can tell there's a bit of a difference in their style of teaching dance! I got to do 3 of my favorite things - laugh a whole lot, dance and hear great music, and I loved every minute of it!
I'm looking forward to going back tonight for the practice party!!! At night I never know who I'm going to end up dancing with because you just show up and get who you get. A few times I ended up partnering with another lady, but we did great together and had a ball! She was also a dance instructor, so it wasn't too weird having her lead!
I'm taking the advice from my good friend and boss and being adventurous! I feel like a late bloomer at times as I'm just beginning to discover and figure some things out about myself, but I guess that's all part of the journey - getting to know, love, and accept all the unique parts that God interweaves to make us who we are! I sometimes think oh if I had only had the confidence, discipline, and maturity when I was younger to stick with dance... but.. the great thing about dancing for those in whom dancing burns within their soul... the passion never goes away; it is something that is fully and quickly able to be reignited in an instant!
In another life, perhaps, I would definitely have been a dancer!
