I HOPE YOU DANCE

A close friend of mine gifted me a card where she had written the words of the song “I hope you dance” down and though that was earlier this year, these words still linger in my mind more often than not…
I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
I don’t know if it’s just me but I find the words above so encouraging an uplifting.
To know that someone could wish you such to be honest can take you a long way. Today as you read this I wish the same for you. Give faith a fighting chance. Don’t focus on the things that didn’t work out ; forge forward. Don’t get too comfortable with the goals achieved, keep setting higher ones. When you want to quit; remember why you started and keep on.
I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin’ might mean takin’ chances, but they’re worth takin’
Lovin’ might be a mistake, but it’s worth makin’
Don’t let some Hellbent heart leave you bitter
When you come close to sellin’ out, reconsider
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
Don’t let fear prevent you from trying out things. Do it while scared! “A great deal of talent is lost to the world for want of a little courage. Every day sends to their graves obscure men whose timidity prevented them from making a first effort.” –Sydney Smith
You have to take risks. You can’t possibly know what lies on the other side if you don’t pass those hurdles or road blocks that are along that path.
Also, just because it’s not easy it doesn’t mean you should not or cannot do it. Give yourself a little credit. Trust that you can and will!
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance

I hope you dance (Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along)
I hope you dance (Tell me who wants to look back on their years and wonder?

Nothing quite as bad as the feeling of regret. Regretting the opportunities that you didn’t take advantage/make use of.
Regretting the things you didn’t do because no one else wanted to. Regretting the fact that you never got to ask someone for forgiveness.
Make the best out of the time you have now. Time is precious.
Live!
Make memories!
