The other night I was on the B train on my way to dinner from a happy hour charity work event. I had on my earbuds and I was listening to “Bailando” by Enrique Iglesias ft Sean Paul. I had a vision of me and Ela in the middle of a dirt dance floor on a beautiful Costa Rican night dancing and laughing like we had zero cares in the world. It was so vivid. We had long flowy vibrant colored dresses and I had a red cocktail in my hand. We were dancing to Bailando and laughing at each other while others joined our infectious fun. We were drunk and happy while the outside bar we were in was open and modest. The air was warm and the sky was dark with visible stars. It was amazing.
We all have experienced how a song can take you back in time. At this moment I was catapulted in a daydream forward in time to what I wanted this song to represent. It made me feel lighthearted and genuinely happy. My soul was smiling on that subway. Legit. True happiness.
I walked off the train smiling to myself and I caught eyes with a hottie. He smiled at me and I felt even more giddy inside as I walked off to meet Ela for dinner and tell her about our fun to come.
I live for moments like these. I strive to have those happy moments throughout my day as much as possible. They don’t have to be thoughts of vacation. They just have to be happy. It’s become my primary goal to find ways to make my soul sing and dance. Life is too short otherwise.
It looks like I may have to postpone my trip to Costa Rica/Nicaragua end of Nov/beginning Dec. I’m in denial and still trying to find a way. Good vibes I can work this daydream to fruition end of year!
Listen to this and tell me this doesn’t make you daydream and want to dance. Btw this is the first time I’ve seen this video. Let’s all go to Central American and have a dance party!
