Dancing in the Parking Lot

Last Saturday, we went to a concert in our community.

Tainted Love.

If you have the chance, you don’t want to miss them.

I live in a small community.

And we all know each other – if not by name, by our car or golf cart or kids’ names.

After the concert, our friend busted out his mobile DJ booth and DJ’ed in the parking lot as the gridlock of cars were trying to exit the parking lot.

We started dancing right there in the gravel lot.

And a few others even joined us.

Before coaching, I would have never danced in the parking lot.

I mean, who does that, right?

I would have been too insecure.

I would have worried about what the other moms thought about me.

I would have been self-conscious about my (lack of) dancing skills.

I would have been concerned that my neighbors would post a video on social media.

I would have been terrified that someone thought I was acting drunk and foolish.

Know what else I would have done?

I would have missed out.

Big time.

See, I’m not afraid to feel embarrassed, anymore.

I’m not worried about what others think about me, anymore.

Because of this, I no longer miss out on all the opportunities to live…

…and have silly stories to share…

…and celebrate my blessings of this life.

I invite you to do the same.

If you’re afraid to dance in the parking lot with a line of traffic watching you, we need to talk. I can help you.
