Have you ever heard the song by Lee Ann Womack- I Hope You Dance?… I think God had her right that song especially for me….I have missed out on so many life opportunities because I was too afraid to speak….Afraid that I would get hurt… Afraid of rejection or whatever. I let fear rule me..but no more…..I have decided to stop being a Wall Flower and to get out on the floor and dance! Whatever happens…Good or Bad, at least I will have had the experience…. at least I won’t look back on my life and regret that I never did this or did that….

This is my song! It keeps me inspired! I hope it inspires you too! Although every opportunity is not one you should take, don’t let fear be the reason you miss out on it. (I’m preaching to myself -so excuse me!)

Anyway—- I hope you dance!

I Hope You Dance


I hope you never lose your sense of wonder,
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger,
May you never take one single breath for granted,
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed,
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance….I hope you dance……….

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance,
Never settle for the path of least resistance,
Livin’ life means takin’ chances, but they’re worth takin’,
Lovin’ might be a mistake, but it’s worth makin’,
Don’t let some Hell bent heart leave you bitter,
If you come close to sellin’ out reconsider,
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance….I hope you dance.
I hope you dance….I hope you dance.
(Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along,
Tell me who wants to look back on their years
and wonder where those years have gone.)

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

Dance….I hope you dance.
I hope you dance….I hope you dance.
I hope you dance….I hope you dance..
(Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along,
Tell me who wants to look back on their years
and wonder where those years have gone.)
