7 Kreativ Posts on the Dance of Life


I’ve been given the Kreativ Blogger Award by Nathalie Lussier of Billionaire Woman. Thanks Nathalie! The award requires me to list 7 things I love and pass the award on to 7 bloggers that I like.

I’ll highlight 7 blog posts I love, and confer the Kreativ Blogger Award on the writers of these creative posts! All the posts are about life lessons from dancing.

1. Dance Around the World

Ian presents a video called “Where the hell is Matt?” which shows this guy literally dancing round the world and getting people of all nationalities to join him with their own dances. A great statement about the unity of humanity.

I’m planning to present videos, songs, articles, poems, writing etc.. Basically anything that lifts my spirits and contributes in some way to peace and compassion on the planet.

2. An Amazing Story of Strength and Perseverance

Giovanna has a mission to urge people to take imperfect action to change their lives, and inspires her readers with real life stories. This video of a ballet performed literally without an arm and a leg gave me goosebumps.

Ma Li and Zhai Xiaowei was the first time a handicapped couple ever entered the CCTV national dance competition and they won the hearts of millions. With strength and perseverance we can do anything!

3. Your Sacred Dance

Mare’s intelligent posts teach me so much, and this post is my favourite of all. She introduces the concept of a survival dance and a sacred dance, a concept so powerful that I printed it out to paste in my journal.

The survival dance has to come first, because it provides the means of supporting yourself physically and economically. For most people, this means a paid job. Once you’ve established a strong foundation for yourself through your survival dance, then you can start looking for clues as to what your sacred dance is : the work you were born to do.

4. What Susan Boyle Can Teach Us

Barbara’s post on the beauty and power of Susan’s voice and message made me feel like crying each time I watched the video. This is more about a song than a dance, though there is a little wiggle in the video that could loosely qualify as dancing.

The Susan Boyle story and video pulls at my heart strings in such a way, I can’t stop watching her performance. It drives the message home that first impressions are often deceiving.

5. Dance, Dance and Oh Yes… Dance!

Nadia exudes happiness at her blog, and you can practically feel her love for dancing and life come waltzing out of this post. Such joy is usually born out of sorrow, and this is a woman who has experienced and embraces both.

Life is so short. What you have today, you may not have tomorrow. Of course, you may always have more tomorrow than you have today, too. Life is so fluid and so beautiful. Rigidity is created by man and is not a healthy way to live.

– Nadia, Happy Lotus

6. Life is Too Short to Watch Other People Dance

Hayden writes from her heart about how our words to others do make a difference even if we don’t realise it at the time. She also celebrates the karma of how our own words sometimes boomerang back to help us when we need it most.

Not only is life too short to watch other people dance, when it comes to life there are no “sidelines”. You’re living, right now. You’re affecting the world, whether you want to or not. So what are you creating?

– Hayden, Through the Illusion

7. Christian the Lion

Albert posts a video which is probably the closest you’re ever going to see of a lion dancing with its human friends. This post really restores my faith in creation, reminding me that different species can learn to get along.

I haven’t had anything move me like this for a very long time! I know many will have seen this video, but it’s really worth sharing again.
