Life is a Dance
By Sara Jane
What is your favourite music to dance to?
When was the last time you let yourself feel the music?
Do you have a song or piece of music that when you hear it, you close your eyes and just let your body move or sway to it?
How do you feel when you are dancing?
Life is a dance, have you heard it said, “When you stumble, make it part of the dance”? (Author Unknown)
Think about dancing, you move forwards and backwards, sideways, round and round J, this sounds like life to me, with all its twists and turns.
Sometimes we dance on our own, others we led, other times we are lead and then there are the group dances.
Look at Nature, she loves to Dance,
The wind in the trees swaying the branches and rustling the leaves
The Flowers rocking in the breeze
The courtship dances of so many animals
Birds hopping and bobbing
Waves splashing & crashing
Rivers and Streams trickling and rushing
Flames dancing and sharing their light
Everywhere you look there is movement, the dance of life surrounds us.
Let nature be your guide, join in her dance, your dance.
Life is all about movement, your heart pumps so that the blood flows around your body. You have to keep moving or your joints will cease up. Your hair and nails are always growing, all the cells in your body are continually renewing themselves.
A stagnant pond or pool slowly dies, there is no flow of fresh water. Let your mind dance with new information, learning something new, challenge yourself to move and grow.
You will have many different dances in your life, with many different people, each one will help you to grow and add new steps to the dance that is your life.
Choose your steps, dance to your own tune, this is your life to dance to as you choose; have fun with it, laugh and play with it.

“A smile is contagious, let's start an epidemic” I first read this while I was waiting for a blood test, it was on the wall of the cubicle and it has stuck with me ever since.
I did try researching the rest of these quotes about smiles and laughter but without much joy – hehe, please forgive the pun, it wasn’t intended.
A Laugh is a Smile that Bursts – Mary H. Waldrip
Laughter is the best Medicine
Smile and the world smiles with you, Cry and you cry alone
If someone doesn’t have a Smile of their own, give them one of yours
A Smile that touches your eyes, opens the windows to your Sole (not sure where this one came from, it may be from me).
Laugh, Laugh, Laugh
Says your Heart to your Lips
Smile, Smile, Smile
Says your Heart to your Eyes
Love, Love, Love
Says your Heart to your Mind
Open your eyes to the beauty that surrounds you
Smile as you witness the budding of a leaf
Smile as you see the blooming of a flower
Laugh as you watch the antics of the Animals
Share laughter with family and friends
Witness with Joy the growing up of your children
Let the sounds of laughter fill your house, your home
Listen for laughter everywhere you roam
Laughter is healing, it banishes the blues
Laughter is medicine, a tonic for your Soul
Laughter is a beautiful sound
The sound of joy and fun
The sound of children and play
Let your Inner Child out to play
Awaken the fun and joy within you
Feel your Heart swell and your mind relax
Life is a journey
A journey that should be filled with fun
Learn to play again, to dance again, to laugh again.
Love, Peace & Laughter
