“What Kind Of CHANGE Will Affect YOUR Campaign?”
Article (c) 2008 Shawn Byfield
My friend, the US elections are upon us. I mean, they’re upon the American people, not upon us Canadians. And I like that word, “upon.” What was I talking about again?
Politics. Guess that’s why I could only write one sentence before I start to wander… Anyway, the platform both Obama and McCain parties are shouting loud and clear: CHANGE is needed.
Change is a powerful word. Many of us are afraid of change, and let that fear run, redirect or even ruin our lives. But not you, oh powerful dance lover- surely not YOU! Because as dancers, change happens. And it usually happens faster than you can say:
“Silly Susie slowly slithered down the slippery slope”. See?
September marks the start of a new school year. Back to work for others. And it’s time for your OWN campaign. A campaign that keeps you on track of the promises you made in January. Remember those New Years resolutions you’ve been slacking on?
How’s that workin’ out for you? What kind of CHANGES will you willingly accept into your life?
My biased opinion says “Getting into a dance class” might be one of those campaign promises you made earlier. But will you keep it? Or will the fear of CHANGE run your life?
Remember when moving up from grade 7 to grade 8 was a good change? Remember when you got a better job? Remember when you hit puberty? Change is good. When we put the fear behind us, change can also fun, invigorating and EMPOWERING.
I challenge you to CHANGE something. See what happens.
