|Damn Straight it doesn't!|
I love Salsa! Like seriously L-O-V-E Salsa! As with most things I do, while I love it, there's also a level of grrrr frustration that causes massive internal battles to wage. It's getting to the point now where even I laugh at some of my internal monologues and conversations (even out loud a few times!). These angel/devil Salsa conversations have been less humorous in nature, but in some cases may end up being absurd anyway. Before I get to what is sure to be a lot of continued insight into my head let's first take a gander at why I love Salsa.
First of all it's easy, the basic of Salsa is probably the most simple basic of any dance I've learned. Second- once you get the basic down if you know how to get back into it then no matter what happens you'll end up back where you started. Third- Salsa music is nearly impossible to not dance to. Fourth- have you seen some of those good salsa dancers out there? They are wicked cool and totally amazing! Fifth- and finally I think is that I was taught Salsa originally by someone who loved it too, so that made it a lot of fun to pick up and work on.
So I had a ton of fun doing that.... but always in my head there's the running commentary Ok need to get to the gym. There was a time when I was good at this. What the heck was that? Oh I want to dance like her! Tomorrow I am going to start going to the gym. OMG is this song over yet so I can catch my breath?!?
|One of my favorite mantras of late!|
Well I am maintaining that you can't keep a good girl down, and there are too many good things going in my life to stress too much about it. Also, I am almost just as happy to see my friends get out there and have a good time. I'm sure that will change as soon as a 3-5 minute fast paced Salsa doesn't make my body try to make deals with my brain about how to get out of the possible pain.
I hope to be back to the floor soon, but who knows. That saying that "When you make plans...God laughs" seems to be very accurate of late.
I wish everyone, as always, Happy Dancing!
