Don’t Envy the Dancers

When a group of street dancers appears in public, swirling away without a care in the world, people take notice. Some people stop and watch in awe. “Wow, look at those skills. Amazing!” Others giggle and sneer. “Haha! How embarrassing.”

Men in suits try to make their longing stares look like they disapprove of the ruckus. Deep down, they wish they too could throw away their (strait) jackets and bust a move without giving a damn.

Don’t envy the dancers. Dance with them. At the very least, let them inspire you. Unlike staring, dancing in public takes courage. So don’t scoff. Wave. Nod. Smile. Respect the free spirits. Maybe your spirit deserves some liberation too – and maybe that liberation does not depend on what other people think at all.
