Dancing

I danced
with your
dreams
and forgot
I had some
of my own.

  1. This instantly gave me a good slap back to reality.
    True enough, most times we were too devoted on making others shine and making them a priority that we lost ourselves somewhere along the way.

    Very well-written.

  2. This really hit home for me. I think sometimes we can be so afraid of being selfish that we don’t honor ourselves. It’s sort of a revelation, really… it’s probably a huge contributor to my lack of confidence and sometimes happiness. Okay, this may make me cry, too. I’m going to stop typing now.

    Wonderful words… as always.

  3. This instantly brought me to tears. I discovered this to be true for me, the hard way. It’s hard to get back the time you lose when you live through someone else. I’m getting there though.

      1. Yeah, yeah, it’s just crazy how sometimes we dance in other people’s dreams and we’re so happy in there but one day is like a veil lifts and you realize their dream is so big and pretty and yours is neglected and nothing. This is my year of dancing in my own dream. I hope it grows.
