When I hear this phrase, I just want to dance. And by dance I mean shake myself like a rag doll and act like a very happy three year old. Do you know what I mean?!
Lately there has just been TOO MUCH STUFF! I feel like once I accomplish one task, another one just jumps on my back. I feel heavy. I feel tired. I feel like I just want to SHAKE! So I do. I shake off the fact that I didn’t get up at 6am, but 6:09am and thus was 10 minutes late leaving the house. I shake off the fact that I am in desperate need of new sheets on the bed. I even put them on the floor by the bed – but alas, the new sheets have stayed on the floor. I shake off the fact that I grabbed an unhealthy snack because I needed something more than my salad. I shake off the fact that the laundry isn’t done and my house is in desperate need of a vacuum.
I just shake, shake, shake! Why?! Because for that moment when I am moving and dancing like no one is watching, it all just melts away. For that moment, my house is sparkly clean, I got up on time, and I feel amazing. For that moment, nothing else quite matters.
So, if you need me, I’ll be shaking… because I need more moments of peace today. And you deserve them too!
