DANCE THROUGH YOUR DAY
“Mix a little foolishness with your serious plans: it’s lovely to be silly at the right moment.”
Today, we invite you to do the Take-Your-Time Tango. In his book ‘Games for the Soul,’ Drew Leder challenges us to dance through our days with the graceful, slow elegance of a tango dancer.
“Slow down a notch,” Leder counsels. “Do whatever you do in a calm and leisurely fashion. … As much as possible, don’t be driven by inner fear, external deadlines, or rushed companions to stumble through a speeded-up dance. Act as if you have all the time in the world. Come to think of it, you do: No one else has any more hours.”
So stand (or sit) tall. Raise your chin as you gather your full concentration, dignity and self confidence to glide smoothly and beautifully through the day.
“We look at the dance to impart the sensation of living in an affirmation of life, to energize the spectator into keener awareness of the vigor, the mystery, the humor, the variety, and the wonder of life.”
— Martha Graham

“All we need to make us really happy is something to be enthusiastic about.”
There are so many things that we could be enthusiastic about, but do we let ourselves get worked up? Too often we hold back, we say we don’t want to “get our hopes up” or we’re afraid to jump into something when we might fall back on our behinds. But there’s a reason why we get enthusiastic about the things that we get enthusiastic about – and that’s to lead us toward happiness! Enthusiasm is a cue for us to participate, get involved, “just do it!”

Daily Tarot: Temperance
Patience is your secret weapon to face down all obstacles today. Take your good old time to make sure you understand what needs to be done, for whom, why, and how. This methodical approach may not be your natural or favorite one, and it might annoy someone who has a different opinion of how urgent the issue is. Nonetheless, patience will get you through the day with fewer, if any, mishaps.
