i took a shower this morning, feeling pretty great as i washed my hair. i thought about what i was going to do throughout the day and about any other random things that popped into my head.
i usually think excessively when i'm in the shower. after i got out of the shower, i set my iPod radio to shuffle and commenced to get dressed for the day. my little sister was in there dancing to the music as i did this. when i was fully dressed, a song came on. my little sister smiled and started twirling around crazy-like. i had the urge to join her. so i gave in to that urge. i started dancing along with her, and found myself lip-syncing to the song in front of the mirror dancing my pants off. this was that song>>>>>>
i imagined what it would look like if my life was a movie. if someone was looking down on my life from above, watching the very first showing with front row seats. (that's how i know God has to have a sense of humor.) the genre of my life would definitely be comedy today.
or a tragic comedy if i fell and broke my leg while i had been dancing.
i danced and lip-synced and i didn't even care that i felt like an immature kid. my little sister actually stopped and stared at me for a few moments while i danced. (:
at almost 18 years old, i feel rather silly doing that, but what fun is life if you're going to act serious and mature all the time? i had the urge to live in the moment, so i did. and i felt absolutely great doing it.
i truly lived by this quote today.
~"dance like no one's watching."~
i should do things like this more often. it makes me happy. i think that acting spontaneous is essential for a long and well lived life. don't you? so go out into the world and be spontaneous. no really, i mean it. go out this instant and do something you've been wanting to do but never found the time to. it'll make your day!
post script: i know today is going to be just grand because i actually have obedient hair after blow drying it, i ate a scrumptious oatmeal raisin cookie, i danced like there was no tomorrow, and i called my diaperless sister a naked nugget. (yes i did)
don't you just smell the scent of a great day in the air?
