Finding Your Own Rhythm

.

Sometimes, in spite of a lively outward show, you feel as if you are merely going in circles. You have lost sight of a path, a way through, a sense of purpose.

Going in Circles

It is said that if life hands you  lemons, make lemonade. And I say, if you feel like you are going in circles, start dancing.

It will help you find your own rhythm again.

Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance, order, rhythm and harmony.
………~ Thomas Merton

Music and rhythm find their way into the secret places of the soul.
………~Plato

everything has rhythm. everything dances.
………~Maya Angelou

About CarolWiebe

Art entices, inspires, and delights me. Art is a vehicle for laughter, tears, wonder, enlightenment--taking me on a constant path of discovery. You can't say that about housework (except, perhaps, for the crying part).

    Carol, love colors, texture and composition of this piece and your words. May even have to quote them, “…if you feel like you are going in circles, start dancing”. :-)

    Don’t you just love Maya Angelou!

  3. This is just the jump-start I needed as I head into my day. I will carry your visual of “Going in Circles” with me to remind me to dance on through. I always enjoy the quotes, especially from some of my favorite “seers”. Now I can add yours.

    “If you feel like you are going in circles, start dancing.”

    Indeed!

      I grew up Mennonite, and was not allowed to dance as a young girl/woman. Perhaps that has fuelled my great admiration for those who can dance.

      • I grew up Southern Baptist at a time when dancing was something you just didn’t do. I can identify with your admiration for the dance and dancers. I love to watch people seem so in tune with their bodies as they move.

        There is no denominational monopoly on fearing youthful exuberance!

I LOVE hearing from you!
