Living

“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.”
William W. Purkey

YESSSSS

Dance

I know I’ve heard these words spoken before in various ways. They really are true. For someone struggling with anxiety it is so hard to do.

I worry too much about what others think.

I worry too much about how others feel.

I need to focus on me and my finally and just dance like no one is watching.

What prompted this? I walked in to work yesterday with my lunch; with no one around and no one said anything to me I instantly felt shame. I felt shame for how I looked, how I felt. I felt shame that I still haven’t been able to shed the weight I need to in order to be healthy. I felt shame that I’m still struggling every day.

I need to make myself a poster with these words on it. I need to live my life, not just walk through it, and I need to dance like no one is watching…

This song has nothing to do with that (well not really), I just really like it…

Metallica – Whiskey in the Jar
