Just Dance

Rod and I have started a new career as Respite Workers dealing with teens-adults with a variety of socio-forensic problems.  Every day is different, every day is unique, every person is unique.

What I find intriguing is that every experience tears down some of the preconceived ideas that I held dear, that seemed to give me a basis for my existence on this planet.  It is replaced with a need to” Live and Let Live” far more than I ever lived my life before.

There truly does not seem to be a “right” and “wrong” way anymore.  Yes, there are acceptable ways to behave in society in order to not cause harm to others, we all have a responsibility to protect the rights of others, but it is not as stringent as I was raised to believe.  Spontaneity is a wonderful attribute to rediscover as an adult.  What is wrong with lying out in the wet grass in the middle of the night, staring up at the sky as the rain falls gently on your face.  It took a very special young man to teach me that.

I have always considered myself to be fairly non-judgemental in my dealings with others.  Apparently, I was wrong.  So my new motto truly is:  Just Dance!
