Are You Dancing?

“When you get the choice to sit it out or dance, I hope you dance. What I know for sure is that every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and step out and dance—to live free of regret and filled with as much joy, fun, and laughter as you can stand. You can either waltz boldly onto the stage of life and live the way you know your spirit is nudging you to, or you can sit quietly by the wall, receding into the shadows of fear and self-doubt.”

Oprah Winfrey

Oprah’s words remind us that every day is a chance to step out onto the stage and live with joy, fun and laughter.

The choice is ours.

We can either sit in the shadows of fear and self-doubt, or we can take a deep breath, kick off our shoes and waltz boldly onto the stage of life.

But why is it so important to choose the latter?

Because when we dance, we live free of regret.

We are living in alignment with our spirit, doing the things that bring us true joy and fulfilment. We are living in the present moment, not dwelling on the past or worrying about the future.

But let’s be real, it’s not always easy to dance.

Sometimes we feel afraid, uncertain or stuck in our comfort zones.

But the beauty of life is that every day offers us a new opportunity to make a different choice.

Every day is a new chance to step out of our comfort zones and into the unknown.

Every day is a new chance to dance.

So, next time we’re faced with the choice to sit it out or dance, let’s remember Oprah’s words.
