“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.” ~ Unknown (though commonly attributed to Nietzsche)
This particular image and quote were first used in my Word Nerd: Balter post, and quite rightly too, since when one is baltering they are dancing about with pure joy, albeit usually artlessly. The point is, however, that they are letting loose, and freely, happily, moving to the pull of the music. I think it’s an incredibly powerful message and lesson, since simply letting go, forgetting about judgements, opinions, or any other expectations, and just going to the beat of your own drum is what life is all about. And when you do just that, I bet you’ll be happier, more productive, and feel one heck of a lot more like YOU. It doesn’t matter if your way is deemed “crazy” or “wrong” or “insane”. So long as it works for you, and you feel fabulous, then go for it and dance. Others may not hear your music, but they don’t matter so long as you are doing, being, and creating the life you want, need, and desire.
