I have always loved this song. When I was younger, I would play it on my piano, and if I remember correctly we may have sung it at a choir competition once.
What an inspiration these words are, though. Really. If you don't put yourself out there, don't try something new, don't put your FEAR behind you - you are never going to live a fulfilling, satisfying life. The biggest rewards come from taking the biggest risks. It can be so SCARY to be yourself and to try new things. But I don't want to live my life being afraid.
Follow your heart. Learn to dance. Be happy with your life.
Looking back over the last 25 years, well let's be realistic, 10 years, there are so many things that I can think I wish I would have done. But I was afraid. I didn't want to get hurt, or fail, or be disappointed. But why not? Maybe those situations could have gone the other way and been AMAZING. But I am never going to know. From here on out, I really want to challenge myself to take chances and put myself out there.
This girl is gonna dance...Who is going to join me?
