Writing is very cathartic for me. After writing my last post, all the noise in my head went away. I needed to let the thoughts out in order to sweep away the cobwebs. Once my head was clear I was able to let things happen. What's that Lao Tzu saying? "By letting it go, it all gets done." That kind of sums up the week.
Once I began trusting in what I was doing, what I was working on, and who I was connecting with, everything came together. A new job landed on my lap. I got an audition for one of the biggest roles I've been considered for. I marvelled at the connections my friends set me up with. Craving a free massage? Done. Need a ballroom dancer at the last minute? No problem.
I was half-joking when I asked Alicia Bernbaum if she knew a ballroom dancer. I was looking for someone to instill the necessary posture and attitude in me for that audition. Turns out she has a friend who teaches. A few moments later I was signed up for a complimentary private lesson. Now, if you have any inclination to try ballroom dancing in Vancouver, head over to Arthur Murray Dance Studio. Don't delay. They're amazing. Each person I interacted with there was so warm and welcoming. From my feet to my chin and everything in between, I learned a new way of holding my body, a new form of confidence and elegance.
You never know where an adventure will take you. Not knowing is part of the fun. Last night, a friend brought me to a dinner party and I ended up having the most fun I've had in a long time, laughing to the point of tears.
