There is something about dancing that is just so refreshing, so therapeutic, so releasing, so energizing and exciting all at the same time. I really don’t think I could get through life without it. I crave it and I need it often. It’s how I release stress and recharge my “internal batteries” so I can tackle the challenges of my everyday life.
This weekend I had the opportunity to attend the SLC lindy con. For those of you who are unfamiliar, the lindy con is probably one the biggest swing dance events that happens is Salt Lake City, UT. It lasts all weekend with dances every night, classes and workshops during the day, amazing instructors and DJ’s traveling from different cities, and live bands. Let’s just say it is SO. MUCH. FUN.
My husband and I actually got a babysitter for most of it. Yay! So, we were able to go to some of the workshops and 2 of the dances. (The second dance we brought the kids with us.)
This was a much needed break for Grant and I. My husband has been working almost constantly on his dissertation for school. So yeah, he’s been pretty much non-existent in our house. I’m just trying to keep the kids alive at home and keep my sanity. We have both been very busy and worn out.
So we go to lindy con! We show up, the band starts, the music is great. We can’t help but start to groove. As the music keeps playing and the dancing keeps going, the energy keeps rising. And two tired, sleep deprived, worn out people transform into high energy dancers. It is just wonderful how dancing makes me feel. The stress is gone, my energy is back, my “internal batteries” have been charged.
What do you do the charge your “internal batteries”?
