You know how some mornings just start off right, even if it is a Monday? Today was one of those. I was checking my FB page and saw a post from a friend--a video--and just had to open it. For the next minute or so, I was howling. It was a video of what appears to be a tap dancing class recital of maybe three + year old's but that's not even the funniest part. The next to the last little girl, an African American little spitfire, is dancing her own dance, and she's got more moves than jello. The little white girl next to her tries to do the dance that's expected, but looks joyless and a little shell shocked.
Not Miss Do Your On Dance. Oh, no....she's dancing with a joy and exuberance that is a perfect reminder to just Do It Your Way and Dance Your Own Dance. Who cares that your dance may not look like everyone elses, isn't what's expected, and might not please everyone. You aren't everyone else. You're you, and your dance is PERFECT. Now, start the music....let's dance.
