There Is No Shame In Getting Down On The Dance Floor, Ever

There Is No Shame In Getting Down On The Dance Floor, Ever

Letting loose in front of everyone I know is a regular thing for me at social events.

Do you ever go to events and wonder why there is always that one crazy person dancing a little too much? That person who isn’t afraid to break a hip on the dance floor is me.

Although I can be a shy person when I first meet someone new, my entire personality changes once I step foot on any sort of dance area. I love dancing (like a lot) and for some reason, I forget about everything when I start losing it.

Nothing is in my way when I am out there, and I begin to stop caring about what others think about me. It is fun to make others laugh, encourage them to get out of their comfort zone, and potentially make some new friends while I am at it.

Ever since I was tiny, you could ask my family and they’ll tell you that I was always dancing around the house anytime I heard music from the TV, stereo, etc.

I have always had a special place in my heart for dancing, even while knowing I am not the best at it. I know I am not a professional and I don’t care. When I hear any sort of music, I have to put whatever is in my hand down and go at it.

I think I do this because I love entertaining others. Putting a smile on someone else’s face is what I live for, and if I have to dance until I’m sore to do it, I will.

I find myself not caring about what others think of me while I make myself look like a complete fool because I realize almost every time I’m out there that life is short.

If you want to have a good time, then do it. Nothing is holding you back but yourself, and to overcome yourself, get out of your comfort zone! Embarrass yourself every once in awhile just for the heck of it because it is ok to do it.

I love dancing too so for me, I have no choice but to get out there on the dance floor and express my gratitude toward the music I hear.

Imagine that you are at the grocery store and you see your favorite kind of desert that you just can’t resist. You have no choice but to pick it up because it is your favorite and you drop it in your shopping cart.

For me, your favorite desert is my dance floor. When i see it, I have no choice but to get on it and dance.

Dancing on the dance floor at any social gathering is also an excellent ice breaker. I get questions all the time, most consisting of, “Where did you learn to move like that?” and “Teach me how to whip like you!” by every adult older than me.

It is something that I am proud of and I am not afraid to write or talk about it. Heck, I’ll even show you my sweet moves the next time I see you at a social event with a dance floor. It will be fun!

Thank you for tuning in to this weeks article and I hope you too can face any fear, hate, or awkwardness you have toward the dance floor. Once you do, you will love getting down with all of your friends and/or family by the end of the night!

11 Things You Understand If You Hate Physical Contact

Please keep your hands and feet away from me at all times.

We currently live in a world where EVERYONE LIKES TO TOUCH EACH OTHER. People enjoy hugs, high fives, tapping others on the shoulder, pokes, ect. For someone like you and me (I'm assuming you too since you clicked on this article), this is the WORST thing in the world. Whenever I think of someone touching me (even just a poke) without my permission my reaction is like Sofia Vergara in Modern Family.

I mean, when I take that love languages quiz, physical touch is always on the bottom of my preferences. So I thought to my self, you know I can't be the only person in the world that hates physical touching. So here are 11 things every person who hates physical touch will understand:

1. When people tickle you

I don't care that it's just for fun and jokes; I'm not laughing because I want to, you are literally forcing me to laugh. I hate you, get your greasy hands off of me before I make you get them off of me.

2. When people think they need to tap your shoulder to get your attention

As if simply saying "Hey" followed by my name wasn't enough. I don't need your grubby little fingers touching me. Now I'm annoyed with you before this conversation even started, what do you want?

3. When someone you barely know reaches in for a hug

I don't know who the heck you're thinking you're about to hug because it sure isn't going to be me. Hugs are reserved for people I know well and like, not you. Okay release me now, I am not enjoying this. LET ME GO.

4. When people tell you that you aren't an affectionate person

Are you aware there are ways to show my affection without constantly being all over you like a koala bear? Yes, I'm affectionate, hop off.

5. When someone is in your personal space

We could be best friends, we could be complete strangers. We could be lovers, I could hate your guts. We could be in private, we could be in public. I don't care what the situation is, if you're in my personal space uninvited GET OUT. There is no reason to be so close to me unwarranted.

6. You don't know how to comfort people

When you see an upset loved one, most people think they you should comfort then by pulling them into a long lasting hug. But, that's the kind of things that your nightmares are literally made out of. So, you stand there confused how you should comfort your friend/relative while also not sacrificing your touch moral code.

7. When people say you "look like you could use a hug"

Um no. I never could use one, get off of me. I will let you know when I want one.

8. When you're hugging someone wondering how soon you can release

Please end my suffering.

9. When you arrive at a social gathering and people rush to greet you with hugs

Let's not.

10. When you try to leave a social gathering by just waving to get out of goodbye hugs

Please no one make me hug you.

11. That one person who is allowed to hug you/touch you

This person, typically a significant other or best friend, gets to break all the "no touch" rules and we gladly accept their hugs and cuddles and public displays of affection. But only them, no one can copy them.
