|Damn Straight it doesn't!|
I love Salsa! Like seriously L-O-V-E Salsa! As with most things I do, while I love it, there's also a level of grrrr frustration that causes massive internal battles to wage. It's getting to the point now where even I laugh at some of my internal monologues and conversations (even out loud a few times!). These angel/devil Salsa conversations have been less humorous in nature, but in some cases may end up being absurd anyway. Before I get to what is sure to be a lot of continued insight into my head let's first take a gander at why I love Salsa.
First of all it's easy, the basic of Salsa is probably the most simple basic of any dance I've learned. Second- once you get the basic down if you know how to get back into it then no matter what happens you'll end up back where you started. Third- Salsa music is nearly impossible to not dance to. Fourth- have you seen some of those good salsa dancers out there? They are wicked cool and totally amazing! Fifth- and finally I think is that I was taught Salsa originally by someone who loved it too, so that made it a lot of fun to pick up and work on.
So I had a ton of fun doing that.... but always in my head there's the running commentary Ok need to get to the gym. There was a time when I was good at this. What the heck was that? Oh I want to dance like her! Tomorrow I am going to start going to the gym. OMG is this song over yet so I can catch my breath?!?
|One of my favorite mantras of late!|
Well I am maintaining that you can't keep a good girl down, and there are too many good things going in my life to stress too much about it. Also, I am almost just as happy to see my friends get out there and have a good time. I'm sure that will change as soon as a 3-5 minute fast paced Salsa doesn't make my body try to make deals with my brain about how to get out of the possible pain.
Incidentally if you haven't jumped over to This Single Serving Life, then you don't know that I quit smoking FOR REAL a month ago. So at least my lungs aren't fighting with me for air when I dance as much anymore :-)
Also.... new career change for me and I have THIS blogging experience to thank for it!
