Hello my friends,
Have you ever noticed how one change cascades into another?
It’s like walking into a dark room and turning on the light. The light goes everywhere…
Life changes are like lighting a flame. I only moved five miles down the road, but it is light years away.
Downsizing is not simply departing from a large place to small.
It is changing a way of life,
Letting go of the past so I can be more fully present in the Now.
Feeling fearless as one good letting go leads to another.
Changing the basic way I move in dance is also about letting go. I'm focusing on releasing some tightening that happens in my neck and back that I hadn’t noticed before.
I have to practice this, because that old habit of tensing up, dies hard. You can read more about how it works here.
As I release the tension I notice a sense of lightness and flow, like water…
It feels like “nothing” yet I'm used to feeling "something." What kind of something am I used to sensing? It’s probably tension, because when I release tightness in my legs and feet, the “nothing” feeling comes. I only became able to tell the difference by noticing its absence. I had to let it go, on faith, to find it.
Changing how I move in Dance
Changes how I feel inside of myself
Like water changes shape…
Doing a Marie Kondo on my life
And my dancing.
Letting go of unnecessary tension, working less and moving more…feels like I’m someone else and yet, in a deep way, more me.
Join me in this exploration....I'd love to hear from you!
