I take a Zumba class every week. If you have ever been in this type of class you know that you cannot take yourself too seriously. I try not to look at myself in the mirror because if I did I would break out laughing. Of course the teacher/s always look amazing shaking their hips. Sigh. The lights are off, I work up a sweat and the hour goes by super fast. It’s done and I am outta there.
Is it work? Yes. Is it alot of women trying to do a grapevine to Latin music? Yes.
At some point I think we need to stop and check ourselves. Have we locked ourselves away for one too many days painting, designing, crafting? Have we been stressing about the next sale or market or client? I totally admire us for taking what we love to heart, but at some point there is a line that we shouldn’t cross into grave “seriousness.” It is after all art.
