Never Understood That Line

There's a quote I keep seeing that goes like this:

Work like you don't need money,
Love like you've never been hurt,
And dance like no one's watching.

I never understood that last part.

Dance like no one's watching.

Why? What's the point then?

Admittedly, it would have been a better post if I'd ended it up there, but I can't help but clarify that I do understand the point the author was trying to make. I really do sometimes dance for myself, or for my partner, just for the joy of moving.

And I love an audience too.

That's because you're a good dancer. Me, on the other hand? I need to dance like I'm not even watching.

Sassy said...

Yes, but YOU? Actually CAN dance.

I? Can't dance.

Therefore... If I have any hope of enjoying myself? I have to hope no one's watching.

i totally hear you, M. :)

Jenny - we'll have to dance at BlogHer, if we both end up going.

Sassy - in October

and Lara, next Thursday!

The reason so few people dance, is becasue they fear they are doing so, poorly... they don't want to be embarrased.

If they danced like no one was watching, they could express the joy of dancing without fear of criticism.

Me? I dance like a linbacker on nerve gas... having a seizure (but I have fun doing it.)
