Joy Break 2 | Dance, Dance, Dance

“Allow yourself to trust joy and embrace it.
You will find you dance with everything.”

My Love Notes friend, Connie, sent the postcard above a couple of years ago. She found it and many others at an art fair, I think. Even though I searched “high and low” for information about the artist, I found none.

This is one of my favorite postcards because there is so much joy in the artwork–the colors, the movements, the expressions. The dance is part of the conversation between the women whose very souls seem to be possessed by joy.

Perhaps, that is the point of the quote above (attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson). When we release ourselves to joy, there’s a light in the step and mirth in the eyes. Our very beings are infused with joy.

      Me too! I wish I could verify who said it. Something about it doesn’t sound like Emerson to me. I have a feeling he said “something like this” and his words have been reduced to this. I’ll keep looking. I hope I’m wrong. I’d love for him to have said this!

    Dancing does bring joy, and is a great way to express joy! I joined an exercise class where the teacher will suddenly put on dance music and say “OK 40 seconds — Dance!” We love it! Everybody smiles, laughs, and has a good time. It makes exercise seem like less work.
