With the start of this week being more stressful than usual, I figured I would go out and dance off some of my frustrations. So I threw on a pair of my dancing pants and a brand new pair of blue Remix shoes and I hit the dance floor. I hit it hard, my friends.
I’ve always been the type to worry in advance about things, which often makes me sit around doing nothing and just wait until whatever thing that is stressing me out finally comes about. I’m not doing that anymore. I don’t want to one day look back on my life and think, “if I would have just gone out and done the things I wanted to do…” So despite being tired, I forced myself out to dance.
There’s absolutely no greater feeling that going out and dancing when you’ve been stressed out. It’s impossible to be unhappy. And it’s a chance for me to let me alter ego out. By that, I mean that I get to be a whole new person when I’m out on the dance floor. When I’m dancing, I feel like a badass. It’s a definite boost to my confidence after feeling less than stellar in the clinic.
Moral of the story: don’t make physical therapy your world. I want to be a great PT, but I’m not going to let that get in the way of me living it up. Besides, a happier, healthier PT is a happier, healthier patient! 🙂
