One of the first Zumba songs I ever heard was “Zumbalicious”, a regaetton mix that’s a great initiation into what latin cardio was all about. Clapping, stomping, sliding across the floor and mostly rhythms and lyrics that prompt you to enjoy every step. Here is the link to “Zumbalicious”. Hope it’s as “trendalicious” as you desire!
So I’m trying to get this very blog site to work. I’m absolutely determined to do most of the work independently to have more creative control and a better sense of ownership. Apparently the cost of this is feeling like I’m on the brink of an aneurysm as I make mistake after mistake. And then I’m reminded – making mistakes is a part of being mature . Being imperfect is downright practical. If I choose to do that which I can only do perfectly, I’d be reduced to sleeping all the time, and as alluring as being a modern day sleeping beauty sounds, I’ll take the occasional pimple, faux-pas, foot-in-mouth, and maybe will even laugh so hard soda shoots out my nose…..if it makes me more human. Sometimes sticky, sometimes sweet, every situation is a learning experience.
This morning, in a fit of frustration over a project, I neglected to remember some ill-placed baby bunnies by my back door. These bunnies have been there for several days, under a small shrub, protected from harm by my squirt gun yielding son. You see, Astro, our 70 pound standard poodle, has a penchant for catching and chewing small life forms, or anything that has fur and squeaks. If I wore a fur coat and started to sing, he would try to eat me. So while I was fuming around the house, for a reason I no longer remember, I realized Astro was outside. There I found him, with the lifeless downy form of a baby rabbit in his long snout – the second of 2 chewed literally to death, but not consumed. And so I’m reminded of several things: 1) all life is important, but nature always wins, 2) Anything we find precious, needs to be cared for dearly and not forgotten and 3) Dogs must think rabbits are delicious. As yourself this, what did you forget or abandon today that resulted in loss? As for myself, I’m right back on track.
