Dancing Girl


Click through to learn more about the NOLA Chorus Girl Project.

We’re two weeks into 2019, and things are going pretty well with my various Bold Goals. I’ve read 10 weeks’ worth of books. I’ve abstained from Facebook and alcohol. I’ve even kept up with my skincare routine! But now that the basic tone has been set, it’s time to dig a little deeper.

Two things that I’ve been focusing on lately are my creative impulse (which has gone sadly silent over the last few years), and my need to be playful, to have a little fun with my life. I’ve also been ruminating on authenticity, and bringing my interior world out into public more often. I desperately need to get out and meet people, learn something new, and just HAVE FUN doing something goofy and exhibitionist.

So I joined up with a dance krewe, and I’m going to be dancing in a Mardi Gras parade! I’ll tell you more after the first practice, on Wednesday night. XOXO!

    I’m doing the Komari Method now. But still struggling with 1 child. There are 2 more and their parents. I feel like curling up and sleep through 3 days.

    And keep it up Dancing Girl!

      I tried the Konmari Method a year or two ago, and ended up not really being able to do it. Or at least not being able to do it in the most pure sense. I couldn’t figure out what “sparked joy” for me – but I COULD figure out what made me sad/mad/upset. So I jettisoned everything that made me feel bad, and honestly, I’m still working at figuring out if it’s possible for physical items to bring me actual joy. Idk.

        I know what you mean. I was plainly trying to make sense out of their wardrobes, began buying containers and find that I’m able to clear my thoughts again. Honestly I’ve been over indulging myself in ‘let’s just let things be’ for too long.

        Then I found 1 piece each that sparked my joy for Talullah and DH. I’ve just only been discarding clothes that she can’t fit anymore. Not that of what sparks her joy or mine.

        But I know I love polka dots, fuchsia pink, and things that fit.

        My only worry now if I’ll able to maintain the work I’ve doing for the past few days now. Maybe I’m only kidding myself? 🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️
