Oh what a fabulous post I get to make today!!!  Dance!!!!!  For anyone who knows me personally, you already know that dance is my inner most passion.  Dance is what I always wanted to do professionally, until a neck injury stopped my dancing at 20 years old.  It has taken me until just these past 4 years now to get into dancing again.  This time however it is not ballet I am dancing; I am now dancing ballroom, swing, latin, and any other couples dance that you can think of.

Dancing has SO MANY benefits for you!  Dancing helps your heath.  It adds to your flexibility, strength, and endurance.  Also, did you know that dancing the night away can burn more calories per hour than riding a bike or swimming?? Now you all know how I stay so thin!! haha! 🙂

Dancing is a social activity… and I personally believe that being socially active promotes a strong self-confidence as well as positive outlook.  Dancing provides many opportunities to meet other people and make new friends as well.  With dancing being such a physical activity, it truly assists your body in relieving itself of stress!!!  I can back that up personally.  Whenever I am under any extreme amounts of stress, all it truly takes is a good 4 hours of dancing… dancing until I am sweating!!!  And I feel amazing.  I am smiling within a very short period of time simply from dancing!

QUESTION: What’s your reason for dancing?

CHALLENGE: Go dancing once within the next 7 days!  Report back to me how you felt when you were done! DANCE!!!!!

Your dancing friend,

Sonya… She Idealist

I am a very unique breed of person. If you ask my mother, she would say that I am a very old spirit who should have been born in the 40's or 50's. I love old womens' fashion...when women dressed like women! If you ask my daddy, he would say I am the biggest dressed up tom-boy he knows, who is way too into cars and climbing trees! I was a ballet dancer and choreography major in college until 20yrs old when I retired due to a neck injury. Besides still dancing through ballroom, latin & swing styles, my current passions are cars (seriously...I took 4 yrs of auto shop, and drool at the sound of a loud engine rumble!), fashion & interior design, and creating moments that last!

I love helping people find their strengths! Finding their happiness and their smile! (Everyone looks amazing when they smile!) I love showing people how to be genuinely happy by simply changing their mindsets and attitudes. I do these things in as many ways as I can, using many mediums. As well showing people how they too can do something they may not have thought they could. there's a will, there's a way!

I am a mother of two (2) amazing children, who make my life beyond blessed, and I always do my best for them. I love to spend as much time with them as I can and want them always to be learning... I am very proud of them! And, GOD comes first & foremost in my life!!!

I am...
Sonya Mae aka SheIdealist
