Life is an adventure!  If it was all easy and happy, admit it - you'd get bored.

Do what you can do that’s within your power today and let go of the rest. There’s no use letting the things you can’t control dictate your level of happiness.

Take-away from dance class tonight...

Dance bigger! I know the moves, I can do them, the only thing holding me back is me. Dance full out!

I still find
each day too short
for all the thoughts
I want to think,
all the walks
I want to take,
all the books
I want to read,
and all the friends
I want to see.

"Your body is an amazingly adaptive machine. Ask it to be stronger and stronger you will be. Challenge it to go further and further you will go. Coax it to be more limber and more limber it will be. Allow it to mold into the seat of a recliner and, you got it, a recliner seat it will become. Stretch it, push it, pull it; your body is like cellular Play-Doh waiting for you to be the sculptor." ~ Shawn Phillips from Strength for Life

To Have Succeeded

To laugh often and much;
to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends;
to appreciate beauty;
to find the best in others;
to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.

This is to have succeeded.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Big News! I've decided to sell my store! So if you know anyone who would want to own a thriving dancewear shop, let me know! :-)
It's time for me to move on to the next part of my life. When I bought the store, I never saw myself growing old with it. I have so many other interests, such as programming and math, and I want to have more of that in my life. But I'll still probably be in a job/business where I am helping people directly, because I like doing that and I'm good at it.
Right now I'm looking for a buyer for the store, which could take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months. I think it's just the matter of talking to the right person at the right time. I'm sure it will all come together perfectly! :-)
