As a health conscious individual, I pride myself on the variety and amount of greens I consume regularly. Kale, collards, and broccoli are daily staples. If you don’t see these greens on my plate, check my glass; I assure you, they were in my smoothie!
As for my fiance, spinach or kale serve as his daily greens, and you’ll be sure to find evidence of this from the large bunches stored in his refrigerator. His preferred pattern of consumption is via smoothies (with bananas, oranges, flax seeds, and water).
I attribute the lightness we feel and the pep in our step to leafy vegetables. Our play is fun, childlike, and in eating nutrient-rich foods, I do believe that our plant-based meals help to fuel our high-energy, healthy and happy partnership.
But kale, collards, broccoli, and spinach are not the only things that keeps us moving. Oh, how we love, L-O-V-E, LOOOOOVE music.
Music that gets right down to the core of our being and has us wanting to shake it, shake it, shake it!!! The hairs on our head are moving, eyes are bright and wide open, our hips swaying with purpose, and our hearts have been touched. All is well in the world. But of course it is, we are shaking it!
Funny thing is, we don’t have a clue as to what the artist is even singing about. We don’t speak the language, but the energy from the drums, the voice, the heart of the song (from Spanish to South African music) fills us with passion and hope. Personally, it is in listening to such songs that I dream of the life I see for ourselves. Do you two share a vision?
We do, and it is an image of us living BIG dreams. We bring them to life in our thoughts, but why not give that vision some feet and bring it to life with dance! Dance your way into this magnificent life you see. Be bold, yes and feel good now in giving your story the background sound to make it beat–thump thump, thump thump, thump thump–with LIFE!
Thankfully the dance floor is always available to us–a empty parking lot, the kitchen floor, our seats in the car–that we may place ourselves via the music (which we don’t have a clue as to the lyrics) into our abundant life that we are creating.
The vision is essential. The music is the trigger. The dance is the “believe and ye shall receive”. Having a partner ready and willing to hit the dance floor…..priceless!
