My sentiments exactly

Came across this little blurb in my monthly Zumba newsletter, and really liked it. Thought I would share it with all of you. I am grateful for Zumba and the escape it provides for me, but I am more grateful my supportive students who make it all worth while. Each and everyone of you should really strive to use the one hour Zumba class to let go of inhibitions, and cares, and worries, and just let the music and movement overcome your body! It isn't about looking cute when you dance, or trying to copy my movements exactly, or anyone else's. It is about having one hour of you time, where you can be completely consumed by passion for music and dance, and forgetting about the hectic lives we lead!

Gratitude is a gift we give ourselves. It makes us feel happier and more peaceful. When we take a step back and really look at all that we have in our lives, we feel gratitude. That feeling of gratitude humbles us yet makes us stronger to go out and live our lives fully, leaving all fear, doubt and worry at the door.
Enter the Zumba program. Zumba class feels like an hour of living in the moment, and it is. In time, though, it becomes more than just an hour-long activity, it becomes a lifelong endeavor. The Zumba program is about expressing ourselves exactly as we are and loving every moment of what we do. Sure, there are steps to follow, shifts in rhythm, the warming up and the cooling down. But it teaches us and our students how to let go and enjoy. We let go in Zumba class and learn to let go in life. These are the moments when we feel most alive; and for these moments, we feel gratitude.
