“The older we get, the more certain we get about who we are and what our purpose is. For me, a lot of it is still unknown, but as I make my way down my own path, I have begun to realize that there are indeed some inevitable truths that I know for sure. On your own blog, write a post that talks about "the one thing you know for sure."”
I wasn’t really sure where to start with this till it hit me last night after my 2nd crappy day at work in a row. I was almost ready to head home, curl up on the sofa & watch mind-numbing tv *ahem* jersey shore *ahem* & not bother with heading to Jive but there was a little bit of me that knew if I went I’d forget everything & leave with a smile on my face. Do you know what? It worked! So my answer to the one thing I know for sure is:
“No Matter How Bad Your Day Was, a Good Old Dance Will Perk You Up.”
~ the people – everyone’s your friend whether you know them or not, (ok there are a few dance snobs but not many), they’re all really friendly, up for a dance & a good time so their positive vibes end up rubbing off onto you. I have my close friends at Jive & also people that I say hi to, have great chats & dances with, but only ever see when I go to class. It’s so nice to have this mix cos you can talk to someone if you’re really down or just get on with the dancing side & just say your day was fine if you don’t want to go into detail.
~ the atmosphere – two of our venues are in bars, the other one is a leisure centre. I prefer the bar venues because you get time to socialize with a drink as well as dancing & it’s more of an upbeat night out. It’s a combination of the disco lights, the pumping music & the buzz of the other people around you.
There are times when dancing doesn’t work & I’ve turned up to a venue, tried to have a couple of dances, realized I’m getting nowhere & I’m frustrating myself & just left, but these nights are few & far between.
The downside to these nights out is when I get home at about 12:30 / 1am & I’m on such a high I can’t sleep. I end up watching tv trying to calm down & usually stagger to bed about 2am, then have to get up for work at 6am & start the day grumpy due to lack of sleep! Yoink!
