The Belly Dancer


I LOVE dancing. My daughter asked me last night what I love doing more than anything. I would have thought that I would automatically have said, “painting, obviously”. However, the word that slipped out of my mouth was, “dancing”.

Hmmmm.. very interesting. I do love dancing. It’s an amazing feeling, almost like my spirit is moving the music through me. What has always held me back from officially learning how to belly dance is that whole money thing. I’ve always held back from taking lessons because I couldn’t see how it would make me money.

When my daughter asked me this question, and that answer came barreling out of my mouth before I could stop it, I had the realization that I DON’T NEED TO MAKE MONEY FOR IT TO MAKE A POSITIVE IMPACT IN MY LIFE.

As a matter of fact, what is it that I’m making money for? Life isn’t about the struggle to make ends meet. There has to be more to it than that. I’ve been telling myself that I’ll take belly dance lessons when I make more money. Last night I saw that my life is meant to be enjoyed.

Sooooo, I’m taking dance lessons starting August 3. I’m very excited. I dedicate this painting I just completed to my new belly dancing adventure.
