My First Time...
My heart was racing. Was I actually going to do it!? I could have kept going about my business and not even imply I was going to start anything. Up, down, up, down. "There are two of them... I hope both will join in. That's it, I'm going for it."
Getchyo head out of the gutter! haha! The up down was my dumbbell, and I had my eyes set on two guys who were working out! I had someone else filming and I pretended to just be going along with my exercise of single-arm dumbbell rows. I got in a few reps, placed the dumbbell down and danced over to one of the guys. He just looked at me confused. THEN he did something I wasn't prepared for! He walked away! So what did I do? I followed him, haha! He walked over to be closer to his friend, who he thought might save him- but I was committed!I kept dancing until I thought it was enough, and realized that even though I technically got rejected, I had so much fun!!
I posted it on my instagram page not thinking anything of it. Next thing I know- my phone was blowing up! I had comments and likes in numbers I have never seen. People started to compliment how brave I was and how it is inspiring to see me be my authentic self. That was the spark that I needed. I had so much fun doing it, and it made other people happy too?! DONE. So I started dancing with people in the gym after that, and then people on the streets of LA, and hopefully one day I get a chance to travel to dance with people and spread allll the happiness. ;)
Game face on! haha!
