Often the word achieve can be placed in for success. Where I’m from, the focus of success is everything. From a job to a career to a set of ideas on family and friends and cloths and food and.... the list goes on for days.
At random times my 5 year old will remind me of what I teach him- “ know when enough is enough” and most times he pipes that - he’s right. When we achieve and acomplish things do we give it the credit that it’s due? I remember when my focus was a bit different I would complete something, then just fly to the next objective because I didn’t make the time , have the time or just really didn’t think about it. Today I remind us - and myself - when done with something, stop and be done - rejoice for your accomplishments - drink and toast and dance and sing and be happy - rather than just somber on to some larger day - have many smaller days of joy rather than just one ! Wink! Heck , share one with some one !
May the Force we share - seek- serve - be with y’all this week.

As David Bowie says - just ... dance!

The Dance

Do you dance? How and what do you dance to? Is dancing an important part or any ... of your modern day Jedi ism? Is there different ways to dance ?

Close to my love we sway. Some days dancing helps stop a lot of grrr and frustration for us.
Some days I’m so excited, me and Kevin Bacon get our feet loose!
Some days I meditate and sway and enjoy the sun, or the wind or even the rain.
I dance in the rain. Alone or with my loves. ( my 5 year old boy)

So today the question is - do you dance Jedi? Do Jedi dance? Do these (you guys ) type of modern day Jedi cut a rug? Do ya groove?
I look forward to your responses!
If ya don’t ... try it out .
Force be with y’all!

Yes I love dance,

I used to dance a contemporary dance and ballet in dance school InDance
Latter I get into selective dance group the PopBalet, there was increased a dance lessons
Which also contained a ballet lessons. Twice participated a dance internship > Dance without limits.
Altogether I danced 9 years.
But I had to interupt visiting a dance course,
because nowadays I have ahead of final school leaving exam. So I have to learn.

Concurrently I still dance a ballet at home, because it miss me so much.
But it isn´t same wonderful experience like, when you are inside the dance school,
where is the large dance spaces with many mirrors. And peoples, whose dance with you.
So there is cumulate a great current of energy and you are part of it. < one dance choreography = one being at the same time.

I am looking forward to the graduate, because after that I would like go to dance internship Dance without limits and again continue
to dancing in dance school.
> Sometimes I let abduct myself > I dance on music and creating a random choreography < which I forget at the moment - I do it,
but there is more important to let flow the music and movement together. It´s absolutely freedom and happiness for me.
I recommend to you!

Is here anyone who dance too, don't hesitate and please write your experiences.
Dance movement with you :)

Ever miss one thing and realize now your gunna be behind for a bit? My sons has these dominos - actually they are wooden planks in the shape of dominos with no numbers on them. After so much planning and setting up the ever moment can come when accidentally or through no fault of our own or even because of us our stack begins to fall. Most times I wanna
Yell -“ Dang it “and watch them all tumble down.

I was at Fort Bliss for some time and during my stay there, at the “mall” there was a man who sold hand made glass items. Beautiful colors and melted do dads made a very fragile type of art. His specialty was roses. No joke and every soldier there some how some way had one or a few of his works in their homes.
So, I would see him over a butane torch melting things every now and then at the mall and it happened one day I accidentally hit the cart he had and dropped a figurine. Crash! Broken pieces of a alligator slid and flew every where. It was his reaction that I’ll never forget ... with his protective glasses on he said - ohh one of the properties of glass is it easily breaks... that’s what makes it so beautiful. He scooped all the glass into a small box and said don’t worry friend - I melt glass, I do it for a living and - I’m good at it ! We both smiled and went our way.
How we stack or how we do or even what we do- can some days become out of sync or even shattered beyond belief some days - life is full. How we react can make the difference between catching up or staying behind. Our focus can also play a key role like my friend at the PX - so today is Tuesday- not Monday ... yet here we are ! Let’s remember life happens- when undone or out of schedule what do we do? Can we be vigilant or do we let it take all our focus?
Happy seeking Jedi and as always - May the Force be with y’all this week!
