Dance Party

I worked myself into a nice BIG funk the other day over something I thought I'd dealt with a long, long time ago. It just kind of crept up on me and the more I thought about it the madder I got. I stewed a while while repeating my mantra of "forgive, forgive, forgive, and let it go"...lather, rinse, repeat. Truthfully that helps but on this particular day I just couldn't stay above it. Can you relate?

And then Taylor Swift's new song popped into my head. I downloaded it immediately and had a big 'ol SHAKE IT OFF dance party! You know what? Players and haters and heartbreakers and fakers will always be a part of life. Forgiveness is crucial but we also have to learn to just SHAKE IT OFF. I highly recommend keeping this song on repeat!

*Warning: LOTS of booty-shakin' in this video!

I'm glad you posted this and I read it when I did. My funk this morning wasn't really forgiveness related as much as it was me feeling resentful that this week has so much crammed into it. I think you've talked about before how you need just the right balance of activity and inactivity. Well, I'm very much the same. I woke up dreading this week and I was reading this thought, "Dummy! Yes, it's a short week crammed with a long week's stuff, but it's crammed with GOOD stuff. And you're stinky attitude is going to to turn what's supposed to be fun into work!" So I listened to Taylor and decided to dance my way into this Monday-like Tuesday! :) Thanks, Mer! (and Taylor!)
