"The only things that I regret are the things we didn't do..." ~ Bombshel, 19 and Crazy
You guys were introduced to Tiny Dancer on Monday. (Perhaps we'll convince him to do a Meet the Cast blog?) He earned his blog name because when a group of us were standing in the front of O'Brien's Pub on St. Patrick's Day listening to the band, some crazy girl who we didn't know came up to him and just started dancing.
At that point, Tiny Dancer had a choice. Would he worry about how he looked or what other people might think and stand there like a statue? Or would he let loose and dance with the crazy girl in a bar full of people? Given his nickname, I think you know the answer.
And I love that seeing one small action by another person can serve as a great reminder in my own life. Forget what everyone else thinks, forget what you're scared of, forget all the reasons you shouldn't.....just dance!
Life is too short and time is too precious not to have fun.
So dance with the crazy girl on St. Patrick's Day. Tell the boy how you feel. Buy the plane ticket to Europe. Eat the fru-fru pancakes. Sing karaoke in front of people you'll never see again. Jump out of the airplane. Pick up that guitar and go after your dream job. Rush the field. Call in sick and spend the day in your pjs. Get off your bathroom floor and change your life. Take the chance and move across the country. Give her the ring. Sign up for the half marathon. Buy the ticket to the football game. Snap the picture of the naked guy as you run by. Find your passion.
Stop worrying about everything else. Just dance.
