Wow, you all sure know how to bring up a girls self esteem! Thanks for all your comments lately (particularly on the last reggae dancing post). To flash back to the shy person I was in high school, wait lets go back further to my first junior high dance; it’s Grade 7 and I’m 12 years old. I still remember I wore my moms red pencil skirt and a white loose fitting blouse that I tucked in and white flats. Of course I walked in to find everyone else was dressed casually and knew how to dance but I did not. For the evening I was uncomfortable, self conscious and hiding out along the walls. I don’t even think I danced once! 🙁 Upon being picked up at the end of the night I was asked if I had fun, I probably said yes but the thought running through my head was “are you kidding me???”.
To dance well all you need is the confidence to not care what people think and just let loose. I am thankful that when I go out now I am not that shy girl, on the second weekend dancing me and a friend were the first on the dance floor! On Wednesday we are dancing and it may even be a stay home party, make our own playlist and literally cut a rug (since my living room is carpeted). 😉
Do you dance? Where and to what music?
I was on the phone planning a meet up to watch the band METRIC but was running out of time to take an outfit photo too, lol. I actually went twice on the weekend to see them play in Stanley Park, this is what I wore Saturday.
