Find Your Inspiration

I wanted to share a specific (use to be secret) routine of mine to help people find their own routine.  No matter what the day is going to hold, good or bad, everyone needs to have an amazing start.  Sometimes, regardless of what happens in your day, if you start it off inspired and positive…it just won’t matter.  

What do I do?  You have to promise you won’t judge me…

I put on one of my favourite songs that inspires me to have the best day ever and inspires me to dance!  I have danced since I was 5 years old and I will still be dancing after what I am sure will be numerous hip replacements.  I crank up Best Day of My Life by American Authors, and I shake what my mother gave me!  Usually, I pick up Piper and we dance together.  I am not sure which one of us has the biggest smile.  Even though I was trained for years, I just have fun and dance like a fool!  I am sure if the neighbours see, they think I must have sneaked some glorious liquid into my coffee, as I’m dancing like Chandler off of Friends!  

Who gives a crap?

Sometimes you just have to act like a fool in order to be the best you can be!  When the song ends, I sometimes put another one on, but I am usually charged up for the day.  I am inspired to tackle my work load, give my baby girl a great day and work on my books, knowing that something amazing will come out of all of it.

Many people search for inspirations, I make my own! Boom!

If you are having a bad day, week, month or even year.  Take a few moments to put on your favourite song, put on a huge smile and put those negative feelings behind you.  

I was in the middle of dancing to this song when I believed that I could live my dreams and find a publisher for my books….now that one dream is just the beginning.  

Hey, I think Ellen Degeneres is onto something here!

If you really don’t like dancing, do something else.  Find what inspires you and spend at least 10 minutes doing it everyday and then let me know how something so simple changed your life.

Having trouble finding your inspiring routine?

Go ahead, borrow mine….

Here it is! Crank it up and start your day out right!

    I love this song; it’s very inspirational! “Brave,” by Sara Bareilles possesses similar power. I hope today is the best day of your life…that is, until tomorrow.

      Glad I could help Holly! I still need to remind myself. Unfortunately it’s too easy to break a habit.

    I will definitely be doing this.. See I had it backwards. I would dance and boogie down when I got home after a long day of work! But you know what I will definitely try this at the beginning of my day. By the way, I look forward to my lunch break everyday, not just for the food, but actually to watch Ellen Degeneres show come on! I think I’m the only one in the lunchroom who is overly ecstatic for the dancing segment of her show! Oh well, they’re missing out! (:

      You are right! They are definitely missing out :) I highly recommend you start your day out dancing and you won’t regret it. By all means, boogie down when you get home too…I am sure it wouldn’t hurt 😉

    Thanks for following my new blog! Yours looks awesome, so I’ll click the follow button after I post this comment : ) Here’s a secret of mine – if I’m having a boring day at work and need a pick-me-up, I’ll go into the bathroom (it’s a single) and dance a little, lol. It’s difficult to feel down or ‘blah’ when you’re dancing!

      Thanks so much! I appreciate you sharing how you pick yourself up! I have to admit, it would have been hilarious if it wasn’t a single bathroom :) Who knows…if other people could see you they might start dancing too. I have learnt that just like laughter, dancing can be contagious! When I was working at my previous company, I would go to the reception desk every Friday and we would turn on Rebecca Black’s song, Friday (I know, so original ;)) and dance. Soon enough, more and more people were coming out of their offices to join. I guess when they saw the HR Manager doing it, they figured “why not?”!
