My oldest son who is now 18, is giving me the best gift I could have asked for! (Below is a picture of the gift, but before you check it out keep reading so that you understand why this gift is so special to me!)
When I was going through my divorce, my Team of angels and guides told me, “It is important for you to reconnect with yourself and do things that you love.”
“But what do I love?” I replied.
“You need to dance. It will help you to reconnect with the hot-blooded Puerto Rican girl within you who is playful, joyful and sensual! You need to find a place to dance Salsa,” they said.
“Salsa? In New Hampshire? Where am I going to find a Salsa dancing place in New Hampshire?” I asked doubting I would find one close to me.
“Google it,” they answered.
It actually took me 9 months before I went to my first Salsa dance social last year…and yes, there was one in New Hampshire. When I googled it, I was surprised to find a Salsa place just 20 minutes from me! (I bet my Team already knew about it!)
And my Team was right. Dancing Salsa at Copacabana has totally reconnected me with my heart and true self. When I dance to Latin music I feel so happy!
So here’s where my son comes with the best gift ever! A couple of months ago he tells me, “Mom, I want to do my Senior project on Salsa dancing. Can I take dance lessons with you?”
“OMG! Seriously?! Absolutely!!!” I said while literally jumping up and down with excitement.
I get to share my passion for dancing with my son! We get to build beautiful (and fun) memories before he heads away for college. Thank you, universe! I feel so lucky and blessed.
Here’s a pic of my son and I dancing Salsa in our living room. Notice my beaming face!
This is one of the many ways I have reconnected with myself and brought more joy into my life after my divorce…dancing Salsa! And this is also what I help my clients do: reconnect with themselves and find their joy during and after their divorce.
Leave a comment below to let me know what is on your list to bring joy into your life! Your soul is nudging you to reconnect with yourself through experiences that bring you joy. This helps you be happy, enjoy life, and reconnect with your true Self!
