I have to share with you my excitement over Salsa Dancing. A friend has been dancing for about a year now and even traveled to Cuba on a Salsa Dancing trip and she invited me to a Salsa by the Bay evening: Live band, food etc.
I’ve always Loved dancing but only for fun and without any technique! So I said yes to the invite and found myself getting excited about saying yes to an evening of dancing. Then I thought I need shoes….bring on the sparkles….I thought they may distract people from my inability to do the proper steps!
With a few weeks to go till the event I got up the courage to put on my sparkly shoes and attend a dance lesson for beginners. I was blown away. Everyone I met was supportive, informative and prepared to spend time with me teaching the steps and the art of Salsa. My smile stretched from ear to ear. I felt I belonged, perfect time, place and people. Even the dance instructors took me under their wing. It was amazing!!!!
I turned to my husband when I got home and after enthusing about the experience I turned to him and said “Can you tell I’m excited!” he grinned back truly delighted with my excitement. I am enjoying being excited about doing something again. After the back surgery I was unsure as to what I could do again and I am so super excited that I feel like a little kid on a great adventure. And I’ve been asking other people I know if they want to come along on the adventure too! No experience required!
Allowing yourself to say yes to the great adventure is so powerful and it really doesn’t matter how the Salsa evening goes, I am enjoying the excitement of learning and being part of the Salsa world.
Hope you Love my shoes as much as me, have organised a red dress to go with them and can’t wait to move to the music of Salsa!!
For now I am Enjoying the Excitement and allowing it to spill over into the rest of my life xxx
