YES, I confess…
I own a lot of music. My excuse?
I’m Brazilian and dancing is oxygen for my soul.
I dance in my pajamas, in the shower, in the car, at the airport – anywhere.
If our paths cross on the street, you’re going to see me dance walking.
WHAT? Not familiar with DW? You dance and walk at the same time.
Try. You’ll love it!
I enjoy observing people’s reactions to my crazy moves. Some smile back at me, some give me “the look” and some think a flash mob is about to break out… AHA, it’s priceless and my body feels sooooo good!!!
True happiness is much simpler than you might think.
When you look at your daily activities – and the feelings they generate – ask yourself if they promote fun or frustration? Excitement or boredom?
Every moment you get to create your day by choosing your actions.
They will determine your energy and vibrational frequency.
Everything and everyone vibrates differently.
If your life was a movie (it is), what lyrics would be your soundtrack?
Here’s my fave playlist with 8 inspiring songs to energize your day:
1. BEST DAY OF MY LIFE, American Authors
I had a dream so big and loud / I jumped so high I touched the clouds / Wo-o-o-o-o-oh (x2) / I stretched my hands out to the sky / We danced with monsters through the night / Wo-o-o-o-o-oh (x2) / I’m never gonna look back / Woah, never gonna give it up / No, please don’t wake me now / Oo-o-o-o-oo / This is gonna be the best day of my life / My li-i-i-i-ife / Oo-o-o-o-oo / This is gonna be the best day of my li-ife / My li-i-i-i-ife.
2. BRAVE – Sara Bareilles
You can be amazing / You can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug / You can be the outcast / Or be the backlash of somebody’s lack of love / Or you can start speaking up / Nothing’s gonna hurt you the way that words do / When they settle ‘neath your skin / Kept on the inside and no sunlight / Sometimes a shadow wins / But I wonder what would happen if you / Say what you wanna say / And let the words fall out / Honestly I wanna see you be brave / With what you want to say / And let the words fall out / Honestly I wanna see you be brave.
3. GOOD RIDDANCE – Green Day
Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road / Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go / So make the best of this test, and don’t ask why / It’s not a question, but a lesson learned in time / It’s something unpredictable, but in the end is right / I hope you had the time of your life.
4. INNER NINJA – Classified ft. David Myles
I read the rules before I broke ’em / I broke the chains before they choked me out / Now I pay close attention / Really learn the code / I learned to read the map before I hit the road / Nobody’s gonna see me comin’/ Nobody’s gonna hear a sound / No matter how hard they tryin’/ Nobody’s gonna bring me down.
5. KEEP YOUR HEAD UP – Andy Grammer
I’ve been waiting on the sunset / Bills on my mindset / I can’t deny they’re getting high / Higher than my income / Incomes bread crumbs / I’ve been trying to survive / The glow that the sun gets / Right around sunset / Helps me realize / This is just a journey / Drop your worries / You are gonna turn out fine / Oh, you turn out fine / Fine, oh, you turn out fine / But you gotta keep your head up, oh / And you can let your hair down, eh / You gotta keep your head up, oh / And you can let your hair down, eh.
6. LET’S GO – Calvin Harris feat. Ne-Yo
Let’s go / Make no excuses now / I’m talking here and now / I’m talking here and now / Let’s go / Your time is running out / I’m talking here and now / I’m talking here and now / It’s not about what you’ve done / It’s about what you doing / It’s all about where you going / No matter where you’ve been / Let’s go!
7. ROAR – Katy Perry
I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath / Scared to rock the boat and make a mess / So I sat quietly, agreed politely / I guess that I forgot I had a choice / I let you push me past the breaking point / I stood for nothing, so I fell for everything / You held me down, but I got up / Already brushing off the dust / You hear my voice, you hear that sound / Like thunder gonna shake the ground / You held me down, but I got up / Get ready ’cause I’ve had enough / I see it all, I see it now / I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire / ‘Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar / Louder, louder than a lion / ‘Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar / Oh oh oh oh oh oh / Oh oh oh oh oh oh / Oh oh oh oh oh oh / You’re gonna hear me roar Now I’m floating like a butterfly / Stinging like a bee I earned my stripes / I went from zero, to my own hero.
8. WE WEREN’T BORN TO FOLLOW – Bon Jovi
This one goes out to the man who mines for miracles / This one goes out to the ones in need / This one goes out to the sinner and the cynical / This ain’t about no apology / This road was paved by the hopeless and the hungry / This road was paved by the winds of change / Walking beside the guilty and the innocent / How will you raise your hand when they call your name? Yeah, yeah, yeah / We weren’t born to follow / Come on and get up off your knees / When life is a bitter pill to swallow / You gotta hold on to what you believe / Believe that the sun will shine tomorrow / And that your saints and sinners bleed / We weren’t born to follow / You gotta stand up for what you believe / Let me hear you say yeah, yeah, yeah, oh yeah.
Get up and dance,
