I said that when I got to 1,000 “likes” on Facebook that I would record a video of me dancing. And I did. I want to thank you guys and gals so much for supporting me over the past year and a half or so, and I really hope you enjoy this video of me silly dancing all over town.
Here’s to the next thousand! I love you.
Did you keep count of how many people smiled at you? You can put me down on the list of people who did that. <3 You're like my social confidence idol.
Congratulations on 1000 likes! You deserve every single one and thousands more! 🙂
Hahah no I can’t say I did. But if I made a list your name would be at the top! Thanks so much, dahhhling.
Wow! I only joined your page last week and this is the second thing I’ve seen from you because I have not been online a lot. YOU are my new hero. I wish I had even a tiny bit of your confidence. I was very shy as a child, and even through my years until adulthood. I made a determination some years back to overcome my shyness and try to enjoy life through my own lens rather than through the lens of other people so much. With years of hard work and self-pep talks I did a pretty amazing job of getting out in the world and enjoying people and activities a lot more. Then, 3 years ago a woman that I had become “friends” with – or so I thought, stabbed me in the back, putting me right back in that childhood state of no self-confidence. Even though I am almost 60, I tell myself not to let her destroy what I built in my life, it doesn’t matter. The damage was done. Now I am right back at square one. I do get out and love my life – with my family. Not so much with outsiders any more. I find that to be much too risky. And I have only recently begun to explore making junk journals and things like that as a form of private self-expression. And as a way to leave beautiful things for my 10 grandkids. Anyway, watching this video made me feel so happy to see you enjoying being just a silly, happy girl. I love it. And I love you. I am thinking I probably won’t go out and be dancing in the streets any time soon – or ever, actually. But in my heart of hearts, I was right there with you.
Darling Darla, thank you so much for your message. First, I’m really glad you enjoyed the video so much! Second, I’m really sorry to hear about that unfortunate experience that bumped you back to square one. The fact that you recognize that she was the cause is a good thing, though! It actually puts you closer to climbing back up that ladder of self confidence. You now just have to believe in your heart and mind that the nonsense she pulled is only a reflection on her and NOT on you. Not only did you not cause her to do that, but you don’t deserve it. You’re better off without someone like that in your life, because if someone that negative surrounds you, it suffocates your room to grow.
I’m glad that you’re working on expressing yourself through art. That’s an amazing and important step. You don’t need to be dancing in the streets to leave your mark, babe. Check your e-mail. <3
smiling – and smiling some more. Thank you for the e-cheer.
Awe, congrats, Mary! ;D You’re so awesome! I loved your moves with the Target balls, hahaha!
Hahah, you know how I (and YOU) love Target! <3 Thanks Miki.
I think you gotta take this on the road! I’m thinking a national tour. People can post where they see you dancing! Florida Keys, Grand Canyon,Golden Gate bridge!! I can see it now….
Haha, oh my god. What if my life was me just dancing all over the country? I’m like the dancing version of Forest Gump? New goal.
Now that? That was pretty great. Thanks for the joy time-out!
Aw thank you!! I’m glad I could be of service. 🙂
