Dance Break

Posted on

I have an easy time celebrating other’s wins but not so much my own. I get excited for friends when it’s their birthday/anniversary/they get a promotion/are celebrating any milestone but rarely get on top of a mountain to sing about what’s feeding my soul. I’d often rather help others celebrate theirs.

Well that stops now.

Last week Friday, I packed a suitcase and carry-on to make my way to Costa Rica for a week in the sand and sun. In fact, I wrote this before I left so that I could shut off entirely and just bask in the glory of it all. The trip resonated with me because it included beach, sand, green rolling Costa Rican landscape, yoga, meditation and 4 lovely female souls to enjoy it all with.

This past Sunday was my birthday and was in fact why I wanted to be in Costa Rica. What better way to celebrate than to wake up to the sounds of the rainforest and take a jog along the beach?

The fact that I’ve been so hush hush about it all only reminded me of the fact that we need to celebrate ourselves. We need to take the time to say “Hey! I’m excited about A, B and C happening right now and I want to share it with you”.

So in honour of this kick-ass retreat I’m on and the fact that I’m another year wiser, I say we have a dance break.

Thanks for celebrating with me!

And just in case you didn’t catch the lyrics – and they’re damn beautiful – here they are:

Betray My Heart ~ D’Angelo

As the day must have its sun
And the night must have its moon
Sure as both must rise and fall
I’ll be there to see you through
Just as long as there is time
I will never leave your side
And if ever that you feel
That my love is not sincere

[CHORUS]
I will never betray my heart
I will never betray my heart
I will never betray my heart

Like the breeze that blows in June
I will steady keep you cool
This I swear with all that’s true
I’ll take nothing in place of you
When you’re feeling down, down, down
You, my soul, can depend on me
You don’t ever have to fear
That my love is not sincere

[CHORUS]
I will never betray my heart
I will never betray my heart
I will never betray my heart

[BRIDGE]
Through the storm, through the rain
I’ll come running to ease your pain
Like the rails that cross the trains
Like the blood in your veins

[CHORUS]
I will never betray my heart
I will never betray my heart
I will never betray my heart

Much love, XXX
