The Happiness Project :: Week 45

Stepping back onto the dance floor after 20 years.
I'm feeling very brave and taking a Lyrical Jazz class.
My body is so happy to be dancing again.

I am sure you will have such a lot of fun.

Like you, I danced today, too, but I did aerobic dance. It feels so good!

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

Sounds like a great time.

Mia said...

Well done, you! :)

I have just joined your Happiness Project for the 1st time and I am looking forward to visit all blogs today and soak in some Happiness! :)

Leigh, I have not posted your banner in my blog post, I have lined to both your blog and then a specific link to this post as well as put your banner up permanently further down on my blog. Hope this if fine.

Have a great day, everyone!

Pieni Lintu said...

That's great!!!! :)

Katherine said...

Good for you! I don't think I will ever be brave enough to get back on the dance floor. Mostly because of the mirrors.

BigSis said...

That is awesome. I'm very impressed.

Deb said...

I'm linking up for the first time today. I'm enjoying your blog!

Good luck with your dance class, keep us posted on your progress!

I'm in this week. I'm not sure how often I will do this but...we'll see. It sounds like fun.
I am going to be doing Zumba at Curves. That is about as good as I get at dancing.

BJ_Mama said...

Have fun on the dance floor!

Ashley Sisk said...

That's so exciting to be dancing again - I haven't danced since I was a little girl...with the exception of some funky dancing in my living room.

Dixie Mom said...

Gosh, I love that picture. That pretty much sums up how I would feel if I went back to dance.

Sarah said...

Have fun and enjoy your class!

From Tracie said...

That is so awesome! I love that you are dancing again.

Chic Homeschool Mama said...

Fantastic! Oh how I wish I could join you. I have not stepped on the dance floor since an injury in high school. How I miss it! Looking forward to hearing about all the fun you are going to have!!

A. Rogers photo said...

Yeah for you! I want to get involved in some kind of fitness thing again too but who knows when that will happen. Congratulations and don't give up!

New follower! Thanks for hosting! This is fun! :)

Shannon said...

Too fun! This is my first time participating in your link-up.

Jen said...

I love this picture! Have fun!

Sue said...

Glad you're doing these lessons! You will LOVE reconnecting with that part of yourself.

Also, I accidentally linked up to my last week's happiness project post first, then tried again and linked up to this week's.

But now I'm listed twice, and the first one is wrong. Can you fix it? If not, hopefully people will figure out what happened. Sorry.

Sue said...

PS. It's #28 that I got wrong.

fredamans said...

Good for you on going back! Best wishes!

Lisa said...

Oooh, and it is so happy to see you so happy! I never took formal dance but know the feeling when my body just decides to awaken to the music. Yum.

Have an amazing time!

Kristy said...

What fun!

Queen Scarlett said...

I can't eve begin to tell you how wonderful I find that you're dancing. LOVE IT!

Actuary Mom said...

Very exciting to be dancing!! I hope you have fun with it.

Kristen said...

I would love to take a dance class now as an adult- just to do it. For me, riding lessons takes me back to that childhood complete abandon to the learning process.

GabbyRM said...

It's never too late!

Daffy said...

Oh how fantastic! Lyrical jazz would be amazing!

I'm thinking of taking up ballroom...I have a friend who would be a very willing partner for lessons. I'm rather excited about it ;o)

Renegades said...

Great for you for taking the class.

I've thought and never carried through about taking adult tap. I'd love to learn.

LOL that's why I am lucky my daughter enjoys it. I can live my dream through her. Oh man is that just wrong?

angie on maui said...

[Oh, wow. What I wouldn't do to take a good dance class right now! I have danced for almost 25 years (jazz/tap/ballet) but haven't taken a class in a few years...and I MISS it. I hope you enjoy your class and write about it so that we can follow along!]

hi there - I'm a new follower; I'm linking over from a friend's blog who is participating in your photo/Happiness Project. I love the premise for this project and am a HUGE wannabe-photographer, so I'm thinking I'd like to join in on the fun and link up! Thank you so much for hosting!

Erika said...

How fun! Good for you :)

Tracey Washington said...
