Sweating it out at the gym. Dancing on the elliptical to a mixture of Tiesto, Eric Prydz and my husband, and I had an acute moment of awareness.
Everyone doesn’t dance when they use the elliptical machines. They don’t lip sync. They don’t groove their head, their shoulders, their arms in time to the music. And I was encompassed by an inner curiosity.
Do people only dance in clubs because others are watching?
Do people listen to serious lectures or music they don’t really enjoy on their headphones and that’s why I don’t see others grooving at the gym?
Does music only move me the way it moves me?
But what was powerful and revelatory for me was that this is one of the ways I let myself be me. That I let myself have love. And be love. And that dancing is one of the ways the love fills the world through me.
Because #IAmLove I am free. To be me. And to dance on elliptical machines.
I did have the thought of getting my husband to video my unique style of elliptical dancing … Maybe I’ll save that for an upcoming post ;)
Instead here’s a cliche gym selfie via instagram.com/zoegolightly.
#IAmRelaxed. I am accepting and loving that front tooth that doesn’t let me close my mouth completely when I relax. I am dancing more love into my body and this wold.
Because #IAmLove. I am relaxed enough to let me. Be me.
