This word is pretty much how I have been feeling the past two or three months. When everything hits the fan and that familiar feeling of freak out has risen in my chest and I cannot think straight sometimes I need to turn my brain off and not think just for a little bit.
For moments like that, there is dance.
Dance that takes all your energy, dance that makes you sweat and move and feel alive and sexy (if that's what you need at the time) dance that flings your hands, your hips your head and your hair. Dance that keeps you too busy to be sad even if it's only for three minutes out of a day.
Lately one to three songs on the following track list has allowed me to do that. Dance for a while until I can't breathe, until the adrenaline fills my brain and I must lie on my bed breathing heavily, breathing rabidly, desperate for breath but breathing.
Sometimes when I can't think it's like I cant breathe, like I'm suffocating under the weight of my anxieties but...then I can dance and remember that regardless of my circumstances....I can breathe.
Fair warning, not all the songs on this list are rated PG if you know what I mean haha approach with caution if they're not your cup of tea.
