If you’ve been here before, I’m betting you noticed I changed the name.
Yes, Life is a dance…every day, every moment…whether you know the steps or make it up as you go. Whether your life resembles a carefully choreographed ballet or a chaotic mosh pit, we all dance to one tune or another. But…the more I thought about it, the more I realized I am not that “sweet” or “mellow” as the title implied. I am much more the type that dances around off-beat, out of step…to my own tune.
The last few days I’ve been thinking long and hard about life. How I want to live it…what means the most to me…what I’m willing to accept. And I kept looking down at the tattoo on my wrist the reads “My Life My Way”. And that pretty much summed it up…
So, I changed it. And the whole thing may change again at some point! I’m a chick, I can change my mind without warning at any given point! (It’s what we do.)
Last night, one of the guys I work with was the embodiment of living life on his terms. He’s an amputee (left leg) with multiple other problems, including a heart that’s refusing to play nice. So, what was he doing to break the tension of 12 hour days? Took his leg off and offered it to the maintenance guys to assist in fixing a machine! (“If it won’t “run” then maybe it just needs another leg!”) He was INSANE all night long! (In a totally good way!)
I can’t take off my leg, (although if I could I’d switch them back and forth to limp on the other side for a while…) but I can CHOOSE to laugh more. I can CHOOSE to make life more fun. I can CHOOSE to live life on my terms…and that includes how I choose to “play” with Docs…
Today, make a choice…do something fun, no matter what’s “cramping your style”. Make whatever it is part of your style! Limp, push or pull with flair!
