Dance Your Way to Cheerfulness


“Dance Your Way to Cheerfulness” by Joan Y. Edwards

Donna Earnhardt put a link on her blog that reminded me of how much I love to dance. She put a link to a You-Tube video of Marines doing the Cha-Cha Slide created by Chicago’s DJ Casper (Willie Perry aka Mr. C the Slide Man). Here’s a link to her blog post: http://wordwranglernc.wordpress.com/2011/08/19/im-not-into-dancing-but/.

Here are links to dances that may get you on your way to cheerfulness. Even watching will make you smile. I had to get up and move when I watched them.

    • Dear Colline, Thanks for writing. I’m glad you love to dance, too. That’s great. They say that your body and mind get the same reaction if you’re visualizing yourself doing things. So Dance away in your mind. Dance day and night to your delight. I danced halfway down the list this morning. I’ll do the other half tomorrow! Dream! Love! Laugh! Never Give Up Joan Y.

  5. Hi Joan,

    After a hard day of painting bedrooms for our home remodeling project, I appreciated listening to Alan Jackson and watching others line dance. Now, I feel revived but I still think I’ll sit the next one out.
