The new year has brought an onslaught of goodness and balance. Which means a terrific force of both good and bad. I spent the first day of 2014 in a combination of different exercise modes. I exercised my love for food by attending a brunch that has become tradition with one of my best friends; I physically exercised with an hour and a half yoga class that really set my head straight. I think it was during that class that I started thinking about balance even more than I usually do, perhaps because the instructor kept talking about how painful positions make the not painful ones so much more intense and full of emotion. And isn’t that what we strive for? The most intense experience of happiness?
I also danced a little bit by myself at some point in that day. I dance pretty much every day, but it’s always important for me to start the day (or year, in this instance) off with a little bit of dance to myself. I love this banger of a tune because it’s not about being in the club and needing to be in that moment with those people, it’s about busting a move wherever you may be. This song makes me feel sexy. Sure, it’s sexy on it’s own sort of, but it’s more high energy than sexy. Somewhere in the translation, it places the sexy onto the listener.
Here’s to a balanced 2014.
