People often get the idea that they should figure out what they want in life, set their path and stick to the plan no matter what. If that is the course you took and are currently living a happy and fulfilled life, I’ll be completely honest, there is a part of me that is jealous. For myself and many others, the path we chose at an earlier age eventually started to not feel right.
I find it odd that we are expected to know what we want to do with our life at such a young age and then stick with it for a lifetime. Who we are at 18 is not who we are at 55 or 75. We are energetic beings which means are constantly changing and transforming as individuals. We are not static.
Expressive dance means freedom. When I dance, I find my flow. Finding my flow means I surrender to the present moment and to my body’s wisdom. I tend to spend much of my day in my mind, caught up in thought. I realized at some point that I was actually thinking about my emotions and thinking about my body sensations instead of actually feeling them.
