They Found it



When I first posted  World Hold On on You Tube, I must be honest I never thought people I know would find it.  Only a few people I know "personally" read my blog.  So it was a little easier for me to post that video.  It was so much fun to make and liberating to post.

However, leave it up to your brother to go searching and find it.  And now it has spread.  Not only has he shard it with my family, but Chris shared the link with someone from work...so now they all have seen it as well.  

It is hard to explain the feeling when people come up to me and say as they are laughing: "so I saw your video on You Tube, man you got some nice moves."  They question why I did it, and even try to mimic me.  At first it was a little hard to take in.  It is something extremely out of my element.  I am not used to being the center of attention, and people talking to me about something I did.  Something like dancing.  Heck, I barely even dance at Weddings because I feel like I cannot dance.   But as the night when on and more people mentioned it my embarrassment faded away.  Yes I know many of them laughed at the video, but it felt good to be able to make them laugh and make them smile.  It showed a different side of me.  A braver side possibly.

"It was so much fun to make and liberating to post." And THAT is all that matters. :)

Great dancing! Really, that takes such courage and you have my complete admiration. Bravo on being able to show different sides of yourself! I've read your blog for a while now, just de-lurking to add my support. :)

I am glad you were able to get past the embarrassment (I have a hard time being the center of attention too, so I get you there) and enjoy knowing that you made people happy. And I'm glad you had a blast making the video. I will have to check it out!

PS -- I tagged you for Seven Random Things, details on my blog, if you want to play.

Good for you! People laugh because things make them happy - or because they make them surprised - in either case you are doing some good!

Jennifer, this is so liberating. I'm so glad you were able to find that place where you can just be who you are and let people laugh, even laugh with them. Who cares! You were just being alive and joyful, expressing yourself. What I learned when I was in my 20s was that yes, I am a big geek. I do have the kinds of hobbies and beliefs and interests that will often make people giggle and snicker. So what! If something I care deeply about makes them laugh, at least I lightened up their day a bit. Then I found that by allowing them to have whatever reaction they wanted to have, they eventually stopped laughing and began to respect and even envy how grounded I was in who I am, how much I love and accept just who I am. Then many of those who used to laugh wanted to be my friend.
