Dancing to your own tune.

Today I was stuck in peak hour traffic. Annoyed at being delayed and frustrated at the slow stop and start motions of the traffic. As I stopped at a set of lights I noticed a man at a bus stop tapping his foot.
 "How odd" I thought. But then as I continued to watch this man, who looked like he'd just been for a jog, he suddenly broke out some funky dance moves, right there on the busy street in front of countless passers by. He wasn't wearing a MP3 player. There were no visible signs of headphones either. He then proceeded to walk/dance down the street, stopping periodically to dance on the spot. The dancing man instantly made my day and lifted my spirits. He had some moves.
He didn't care who saw him. He didn't care if anyone thought he was odd or off his rocker. He was just dancing. Dancing like there was no tomorrow. 
Dancing to his own tune.
 I could do that.

  1. How wonderful to be able to do that. Although I confess to losing myself in my music when grocery shopping and singing very loudly in the car when driving

  2. I have done that! ^_^ It works wonders!!...One time when I was disabled and couldn't walk anywhere, I sat and purposely smiled at everybody that walked by. The next day a lady stopped me in tears and said she had seen me the day before, and she wanted to thank me for making her day better. Apparently she had had a very bad day, and some bad news had come her way. She needed a smile. Sometimes a smile, or a little dance, for everybody, not just for yourself, reaps benefits beyond anything you would have thought!! :-) Go, Dance!!

  3. We all need to dance to our own tune, as if no one is watching. Good for him.
