Music Monday: The Want to Dance Edition

The past week, the unthinkable happened.

I got sick. Deathly, feverish, shivering, coughing, incapacitated sick.

I like to brag that I never get sick. And although this is generally true, this particular bug proved me wrong.

I felt more frustrated than anything. I was annoyed that I could not live my normal life. I had to let my work pile up, skip my workouts and yoga classes. I could barely eat and taking a shower was an enormous chore.

The fevers have now passed and although I am still coughing, the worst of it is over.

All the energy I stored up from lying in bed for days on end, is finally kicking in.

I feel alive again and have a whole new appreciation for my health. What an amazing gift it is to feel whole, and all I want to do is DANCE!

This is my go-to song when I need to dance. I just love this version of Whitney. The sweetness, the super fun hair, the bright clothes…how can anyone sit still?

DANCE with me into this Monday and please keep praying for Bobbi Kristina!

Music Monday: The Energizing Edition

The past week was a wonderful, rejuvenating experience. I restored my soul at the beach, mountains and desert. I found peace, rest and healing. I turned 31 with ease and am ready for the year ahead.

Now, it’s time to get back to business. Ed & I both return to work this week after vacation break. I have a particularly long week ahead of me and will be working all weekend, supervising and assisting at CCEJ’s Building Bridges CampĀ where I will be taking a group of students all day Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

For the long haul ahead, I needed an energizing song. One of those songs you just cannot possibly sit still when it is played. I am loving this funky, upbeat song by Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson.

This week when I start feeling fatigued, I pull down my imaginary fedora over my eyes and dance through the situation at hand.

What song always gets you energized and moving?
