I’m tapping into the inner rapper, so I’m back with another Club B girl rap. I am having so much fun making these with my girlfriend, Toni.
We just go into my studio, with a flip camera, prop it up on some Yoga blocks and start rappin.’
It sounds so cheesy, but this dream journey stuff really does start with the first step. Everything is a practice. You have to practice. Remember when you first drove a car?
Same crap – only less dangerous to others.
I did a Nia training earlier this year to get my Blue Belt. Carlos Rosas, co-creator of the Nia technique, was the facilitator. At the end of the week, he asked us how we planned to actually do all we needed to do to make being a Nia teacher, happen. Everyone started blurting out things like, ” time management,” “organization,” ” put it in my planner,” and blah, blah, blah.
When everyone shut-up, Carlos said
Or just do it, physically get up and do it.
It was rather shocking, we all just looked at each other and knew he was absolutely right. How many times have you put something in your planner only to skip it and watch the f-ing’ Kardashians?
So, get up and do it! Do your thing! What are you dreaming about? It’s easy to get caught up in the daily grind and forget to express. Self expression is a little like living from the inside out.
It feels the way this song phrase makes me feel –
Ring the bells that still can ring,
Forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything;
That’s how the light gets in.
~ Leonard Cohen
It doesn’t have to be perfect, just take the first step, and have fun. Toni and I laughed our asses off.
I hope you enjoy the rap – there’s strong language, so you’ve been warned!
