I recently bought a card for a friend that suggests that all conflict should be resolved with a dance off. I know what you are thinking....BRILLIANT. Going forward I have decided that pretty much everything can be resolved with a dance off....
"Discussion" (nice word for fight) with your significant other....Dance off....
Great day.....dance it out.
Bad day....dance it out.
Disagreement at work.....DANCE OFF (imagine the possibilities behind this....one word YouTube)
And think of all the genres....
Old school ('Roger Rabbit', 'Running Man'...the list goes on and on)
Hard rock (I call this "kick things music" although I do not suggest actually kicking someone)
When you think about it...this can solve so many things. I am seriously considering implementing this in all areas of my life.....so get practicing on your mad dance skills.

"Friends can help each other. A true friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself-and especially to feel, or not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at the moment is fine with them. That's what real love amounts to--letting a person be who they really are." James Douglas Morrison lead singer of the Doors
This statement epitomizes my recent experience in the "Free Fall" of my life. It is funny to me that those people who have been a part of this experience have become my greatest allies in all of this. I have found over the years that friends are tricky. Sometimes they are there and sometimes they are gone all together when you need them the most. I am blessed to have had had the great experience in finding those souls that will stand next to me in the dark and the light. Those that I seek advice from come in many forms and that those who are willing to give it and to push me to excel in my life are truly the people that love me. That knowledge alone lets me know that I am not alone in my struggle to be my best self.

Do you have enough risk in your life to stay alive?
Who would have thought that these 11 words would have such a tremendous impact on my entire life. In November of 2007 I had a realization that I was on the wrong life path. My path through life has had it's ups and downs but definitely didn't challenge me in ways that would improve who I am and who I wanted to be. I recently quit my job....and for those of you who know me, know that this is completely out of character. I have since had 9 weeks...to think, study, analyze and research what career path and what type of future I wanted. This period of my life is what I call the "Free Fall". I made a decision to not control my destiny but rather let go and let the pieces fall where they may. I can not even begin to tell you the amount of freedom and strength that you find in yourself when you do this. IT IS AMAZING.
I think of it alot like bungee jumping....when you leap the net will appear.
