Guess what? It is time for another edition of Friday Dance Party on Acorns On Glen. It’s the time where we give thanks for making it through another week and for being alive and present here on Earth. How do we celebrate another week of living? We dance. So, are you alive this Friday? Are you and your family safe and sound? Take a few seconds now to be in the moment and realize what a great life you truly have. Did you give thanks for that?
Good, now let’s dance.
I have a bad habit of always second guessing myself. Once I make a decision, there is this little voice inside my head that says ‘Are you sure you did the right thing?’. Then I reach out and make people crazy by asking for their validation about my decision. To make matters worse, if any of my family or friends tell me they think I didn’t make the right decision, I end up getting my feelings hurt and say how I can’t believe they didn’t support me. A vicious cycle. So this weekend, I took it upon myself to buy some furniture. A new chair, two new bar stools and a bench to put in front of the bed. I picked fabric, matched it to other fabric and left the furniture store confident that I made all the right choices. Three days later, I keep thinking….did I do the right thing? Should I have chosen brown over blue? Is the chair too small for the space where it is going? Is the fabric too busy on the chair? I’ve also tricked two different people into going with me to the furniture store for validation. Both of them know my tricks and have told me that I’m absolutely right on trend. Even if they thought the furniture was the ugliest stuff on Earth, they validated my choices. I know they just didn’t have the energy to deal with my wrath if they said they didn’t like the pieces. I really need to buy a big dose of confidence somewhere. Which leads me to The Civil Wars. I heard them sing a part of this song on the Grammys. They had such big voices and such a unique sound that I immediately went on-line and bought their CD. I’ve listened to it over and over and over. Then last night, I was told to turn my speaker volume down because folks were sick of hearing those people screaming from the CD. What…no validation? How could I be wrong with this new group? A bad decision? Honestly, I don’t think I am wrong. Turn on the speakers and listen to The Civil Wars. It’s a great song to pair up with a little dancing. Remember, it’s another week down and we owe it to ourselves to give thanks for that. Then let me know what you think. If you disagree with my music choice, I will only be pissy to you for a week or two. No big deal.
