Dance, to me, is one of the meanings of life.
It is the air I breathe.
It is the best thing that has ever happened to me.
I feel that my life has become something special because of dance.

As I mentioned earlier in my previous blog post, my mind is crazy. Certainly, it is! Seriously, because this time my crazed mind tried to think, “What would I do without dance?” Honestly, I have no idea. I can’t imagine my life without dance.

When I dance, I feel like I am free and I can do anything. I am in my own world, my crazy world when I dance. And when I do not dance, I feel empty. Yes, you read that right! Without dance, I feel lost and unsure of who I am. People always ask me, “Why do you dance?” I reply by saying, “I dance because I love dancing. It’s so much fun to do. I solely do, and I do it for myself. Dance is a spiritual retreat for me. Dance is the only thing that when I do it, I don’t feel I should be doing something else. I believe that every person has a hidden dancer inside. So why not, let it out!”

Whenever I feel dull, low, or not in the mood, the dance makes it much easier for me. Well, this is the alchemy of dance I guess! Also, when I feel like I have nowhere to turn to or no one to talk to; I always knew I must dance. Dance is my passion and my love. Yes, it’s my very first love. Love, at first sight, you can say!

The feeling of freedom, happiness, joy, satisfied and peace!
From where I will get this all!

The smile on my face every day,
The love beneath my heart,
The purpose of enjoying life and living to the fullest,
The blog I am writing,
The people I have in life,
The confidence in me!
The reason I am alive,
And, the reason I love my beautiful life…
Is all because of dance!

Seriously, what would I do without dance! I love you dance, so very much. You have always made me feel special. I have realised that there’s something magical and unique in me. There’s this deep inner calling or some purpose. I am feeling that, but don’t know what exactly it is. This feeling is the feeling that I love the most.

Dear dance, I am so glad that you found me because honestly, I have no idea what my life would be like without you. Thank you so much for forever being there for me through my good times and bad, happy times and sad. Thank you for always giving me the extra push I need in life. And most of all, thank you so much for making so many ordinary moments, extraordinary. Above all, thank you to the creator God and my Mom & Dad for this beautiful life. I am so blessed, that’s all I can say.

Dance has made me who I am today. Without dance, I don’t think I’d be half the person I am today. I must admit, if I didn’t dance, I’d probably be a dull person, and my life would be a boring life without dance. Dance has saved my life.

So, if you dance, keep dancing.
And, if you don’t dance, then start dancing!
