Today's blog, though completely applicable to dancing, is more about life. We've gotten so twisted around (as a society) as to what we value. Let me hopefully not be the first to say: it's down right depressing!
Instead of being the most wonderful time of the year, Christmas has become a huge stress for lots of people. And, why? Because we have so many things to buy, Buy, BUY! So many gifts to give and parties to throw and people to impress. Guess what: if they're not impressed with you by now, no Christmas gift is going to change that. And who cares?! Focus on the people who love you no matter the price tag.
With this time (and every holiday from now on) take a deep breath, slow down, and really think about what's truly important. Same in partner dancing: take a breath (it's amazing how many people actually hold their breath while dancing...dangerous!), slow down, and realize that what's important is the two of you having fun in that moment (and not hurting anyone on the dance floor:).
As for me, I'm looking forward to sledding with my family tomorrow. Making homemade chocolates. Eating said homemade goodies. And finally, dancing off some holiday calories! See you on the hardwood:)
