Dance away the stress

While I dance I can not judge, I can not hate, I can not separate myself from life.  I can only be joyful and whole. This is why I dance. – Hans Bos

Watching my littlest H, earlier spring into dance because there was a beat in the air, made me smile.  She is mostly completely unaware of any form of self-consciousness; She hears a beat, she dances.  Who cares that she is not able to dance gracefully and yet still she communicates.  She communicates joy and enthusiasm and well, I love her for it.

The end of a movie and all the girls spring into dance and I take a very dodgy video of it on my mobile phone and they are so happy and full of life and full of joy and If not for the filming I might even have joined in.  Sometimes, letting go of all the cares, stresses and more in dance is just plain great and the kids love when I join in too.

We were supposed to go on holiday today.  Not a long one, just one night in Wales, in a caravan park.  A friend had invited us and we thought it might be a nice break but it turns out the brochure on the website was actually nothing like the real thing so we decided to give it a miss.  I can be pretty squeamish so it seemed best to avoid it and maybe try another time when the weather is better. It is right by the beach so if nothing else, we can get some beach time in 🙂 .

Today was then spent doing paperwork – book-keeping for Tloml – and that took most of the day, broken up by the frequent visitations of the girls, doing laundry, trying not to stress over non-paying/ bank error tenant etc etc.  Tloml spent the day sorting out a DIY job for me at one of the houses – He is getting better and better at this kind of thing (very Helpful!)

Finally, as darkness descended at the early hour of 4pm, I concluded my business and decided to have a ‘movie and popcorn’ session with the girls.  We snuggled together and watched a movie which was broken up with bursts of dance.  I felt stress dissipate and all that’s left is joy in being with My BIG reasons for building up a business.

Feeling stressed? – Dance, Dance, Dance.

Have a great evening and enjoy the ‘not so great’ mobile video.
