Dance to the rhythm
Yesterday we celebrated our community with loads of food, fun, games and of course music. We also attended a 40th birthday party later on in the evening, again loads of food, laughter, friendship and yep, music with dancing.
You see in my community we like to move with a rhythm, it might be swaying from side to side, going up and down, and when we are really excited we jump and lift our hands in the air.
Whatever and whichever way we do it, we move to the beat: our life journey has a rhythm too, sometimes it is slow , sometimes fast paced but it always has rhythm. Different seasons have their own rhythm, we need to identify what it is and move with it, of course it will not be right if we were to jump up and down to a slow beat.
As I attended both events yesterday I was fascinated to see different movement to the different beat/ rhythm. Of course we had 1 or 2 people who were not moving to any of the rhythm. That too is ok, in this life we have those who move and those who watch those that move.
It reminded me of the importance of coordinating the right moment with the right beat/ rhythm. Our dreams, aspirations, ideas and plans have a rhythm with the seasons of life. It is when we are able to move at correct time that we make progress, some call it luck, others call it coincidence, but when the correct movement meets the correct rhythm, the dance is spectacular and our gaze gets drawn to it.
I don’t know what season you are in right now but there is a particular rhythm to that season, may we find it and move with it, whether it be swaying from side to side or in full swing jumping up and down with hands in the hair.
Let’s make a beautiful dance.
