dancing with your inner child*

I discovered this on Mighty Girl's blog yesterday. It brought me to tears and made me giggle. I think it carries a beautiful message about being in touch with your inner child and celebrating with them as your grown self.

It reminded me to not neglect her when she surfaces from past hurts in certain situations in my present life.

It reminded me to listen to her, love on her...and dance with her.

I absolutely love how this woman gets that and decided to express this in such a creative way!

OMG I totally love this. I think we should all spend a little time each week dancing with our inner child or having a play date with her, something to celebrate our juiciness.

You Rock,

HA ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!! I LOVE IT. Oh, I wish I had a tape of me dancing to play with - it's the exuberance that makes it so real isn't it? Perhaps I need to dance exuberantly...

Thank you so much for sharing this - I might just sneak over and watch it again and again!

That was fabulous! I love it!
Unfortunately, my early childhood rendition of "The Charleston" wouldn't look as artistic.

That's entirely too cute. It reminded me of all the dance "performances" I did as a kid.

My momma was SO right...this could easily be me. Too bad we don't have the technology to post a home video of me busting some moves as a little girl.

I loved this!!

Oh bohogirl you nailed it as usual. Never let go of that innerchild. She was so right wasn't she? She who dreamed big and believed it would all happen? We can make our dreams happen...even if they come out a little different than we expected in the end.

Thanks for sharing this beautiful thing!

The fact is that I did a weekend (2 weeks ago) with the theme of the our innerchild. I haven't got a real connection, I did not see her, could'nt talk to her or feel her and it made me sad. It still hurts me. I bearly remember anything of being a child.

And still I know that sometimes she influence my acts in my present life. It's not simpleā€¦
