The ballet was uplifting and here is what inspired me.
Firstly, I was grateful for her recognizing my currency, I love the arts! I love the theatre, symphony, and all genres of theatrical expression. Well, may NOT mime. Lol (although Marcel Marceau was well known for his positive political activity as part of his art, much like Mata Hari, whom in the dance of the seven veils, had maps printed on them showing enemy activity which helped us win the war!)
My daughter and I were in absolute awe at the discipline and talent represented in the entire company, from the set to the dancing. The level of passion for dance was obvious, and I found myself reflecting afterwards on whether or not I carried that kind of passion or commitment in any area of my life.
I found myself asking, do I have relationships that inspire me to be my best? Do I have a life where the choreography produces a beautiful life? Does my life have a purpose? Do I have my times of pianissimo and crescendo? Do I have a pedal point (base line) that keeps me grounded?
It is always a choice Dear Ones, whether or not we schlepp through our lives or have a choreography and skill that leaves others feeling inspired.
I am inspired by my students, kids, friends, family, and by my beloved cat and dogs. I find inspiration in the most unexpected places. I had to laugh when my dogs played a game of "let's see how much stuffing is in the comforter" the other day. How could I not when they both had a mouth FULL of fluff, while turning their gazes to each other (as if to say, HE/SHE made me do it!).
I feel inspired by each of you, Dear Ones, and encourage you to shine brightly and to BE the best version of yourself. What is your choreography? How are you entering the stage of life each day, and with what grace, elegance, or impression do you exit? Are you authentic and do you stay in character throughout your day?
Perhaps it is in the letting go from moment-to-moment, having gratitude for each breath and each abundant moment.
I was watching a movie the other night and a commercial, that I thought was inspired, came on. The narrator asks "do you live your life or are you simply alive?" I would like to think that I am living my life, but Spirit reminds me that living requires space for new Divine choreography. I can do better, each day my goal is to do better.
Please join my commitment and choice to live a a life full of an inspiring dynamic. Let the Divine assist you in orchestrating a life that not only takes your breath away from happiness, but inspires those around you as well.
In Divine Love,
