New World Order - Loving Positivity

After a frustrating week last week with some big decisions to make (re cancelling Tokyo), still waiting on money decisions from airlines, I've had a change of mood with how I'm feeling about it. Same problems and arguments are ongoing, I'm just not letting them bring me down.

I went to a concert (some of you may have noticed in the last year I've been dancing for therapy, and I have to say for me, it works a treat!). Endorphins and exercise and fun, all the good stuff both physically and mentally.

The concert was an odd crowd, with very young (little kids) and teens and then old people - or even old people with kids. I was next to some young women, with young girls of about 15 in front of me. When George Ezra sang 'Hold My Girl', the women next to me started kissing in the middle of the song. The girls behind me started screaming, and I presumed they were young (and immature) like the girls in front of me. The song kept going, the women kept kissing and the girls kept jeering. I decided I had to butt in, so I puffed myself up to my full height and turn around to hiss angrily "It's 2019, pull you head in and grow the f#%$ up!' or some such thing. Fortunately, I was shocked to see these were not girls but 30 something women, and before I could open my mouth one said "She just proposed!" and they were hugging the couple and congratulating them. The women weren't jeering, but cheering in delight. One of the on lookers was crying and another raced off to try and tell George 'because he needs to know!'. They then offered to take their photo so they could capture the moment. It was a really joyous scene.




It lifted my spirits and gave me faith that the world is changing. Perhaps I'm the angry one? Maybe the positivity is there, I'm just getting distracted by the negativity?






The other moment that lifted my attitude was a brief moment on Insta. I was playing around when a clip of Bodiposipanda dancing in a glittery, tassel skirt to Good as Hell popped up. She just looked like she was having so much fun. I decided I needed to find more time to dance, even if it was just by myself as I did the house work.

For those that want a more organised dance session, Daybreakers are holding yoga and a dance party at SeaLife Aquarium before work on the 13th Feb. Unfortunately I can't be there due to an ill timed dentist appointment for one of the kids. It will be awesome fun for the early birds - what a great way to start the day! Details and tickets here. (Not sponsored, just an avid fan, enviously watching these events around the globe)

My challenge for the week is to tune out the negative and amp up the positive. When the negative comes, I'll deal with it but then do my hair toss and check my nails.


Linking with #KCACOLS #DreamTeam #TwinklyTuesday and #ABloggingGoodTime What are you loving this week?



Note there are swears in the song, so maybe NSFW. Really like the clip though. All those happy women! It's worth watching.

    1. We lose a lot of stuff we used to like doing as we get older, but not really for any reason....

  4. I love the proposal story. And I love dancing. I used to love Body Jam classes at the gym and these faux Zumba classes I went to - more hip-hop than Zumba and it's something I really miss. I realise I could just dance at home but I never do and don't know why? (I love the Fitness Marshall on FB and keep telling myself I'll put his vids on YouTube and join in, but am yet to do that as well!)

    1. I know, right?! I'll go out to No Lights No Lycra but there's no reason not to set aside time to exercise and dance at home. But I just don't...well, didn't.

  5. Oh Lydia, I know that feeling of 'being cranky/out of sorts' and fortunately MOST of the time I do not react to another person...sometimes I have. Not as in your situation. How easy is it for us to be so tied up with our own stuff we don't notice another's. What a great share AND reminder. Denyse x

  6. That's a lovely story, but also a thought provoking one in terms of assumptions and projections and all those other "tions". I've done no lights no lycra & loved it - sadly few others went along so it folded. It's not something I do at home - unless I'm cooking and then I dance around with a wooden spoon and sing to the dog. Too much information?
