When Dancing Is Contagious
I was crawling along in traffic the other day, when I noticed a woman in the adjacent car jamming out…like full out. This woman was completely engrossed in the music. Her whole body was moving, her arms were in the air, and she didn’t seem to have a care in the world.
I couldn’t help but smile. It struck me the way it did because I had been dancing too, but my dancing was different. My movements were subtle and contained. I would do a head bob here, a shoulder sway there, but all in all it was lackluster. I was dancing, but she was DANCING. Her enthusiasm was on a whole different level.
I looked over at the dancing woman again. I didn’t want to stare, but I just couldn’t help myself. She was radiating pure joy. It looked like so much fun. So much so that I gradually started raising my arms, moving to the music. It felt a little awkward at first, but I went with it. The higher my arms got and the more my entire body moved, the better it felt. Dancing was fun – it felt amazing.
I continued my drive, sitting in traffic for another two hours. Even after the dancing woman passed me by, I continued moving to the beat. I enjoyed every minute of it. I felt so much gratitude for the dancing woman who had passed on her dancing mania. She had inspired me to seize the moment, and milk every last ounce of joy from it.
