Today I belly-danced in the Fremont Solstice Parade in Seattle. My second year. It was a success! We were 200 bellies – talk about powerful! Two hundred beautiful strong women IN RED costume, are not to be disregarded and I think people were stunned to see so many of us.As we were dancing awesome choreography in unison in four lines down the street, people were cheering and clapping, and I heard one woman shout “GO GIRLS!! TAKE OVER THE WORLD – RIGHT NOW!!!”
Hmmm. Take over the world…. As I look at the previous post titled “A girl who could…” and I think of my accomplishments in life and the things I am about to do, I realize that in my own little way, I have.
I close my eyes and visualize myself as a captain of my own ship eyes on the horizon, ready to take on every fabulous opportunity that comes my way.
I am a strong woman. I can do anything. Wow. (We all are!! We all can!! Double wow!)
I’m having one of those weird moments of realization again. Belly-dancing usually does that to me.
Italy here I come!
