When I was little, I was painfully shy. It's been a process through the years, but I have overcome the shyness. I'm still pretty quiet....one of those people that takes it all in. Out of the 7 of us, I would say 5 are true introverts. My youngest 2 girls are more outgoing than the rest of us...especially the 4th child. Living with her for the last 13 years has definitely taught me a lot. She pushes me outside my comfort zone often. I've learned to embrace many things I would have not otherwise by her influence.
I love music. It is something I hope I never have to do without. In my love for music, I've acknowledged the fact that I love to dance. I guess deep down I've always known this, but I was too shy or reserved or whatever to dance much in private or in public. However when my kids were very small, we started a tradition in our house called Saturday Night Disco. We would put on disco music and dance until we couldn't dance anymore. It might have been the first time I danced without inhibitions in my entire life, and I LOVED it. NPayne is a fantastic dancer which I've learned through the years, however I would never initiate dancing with him in public when we were first married. Living in my music loving house, with my music loving people; I've definitely taken a new stance on dancing. I dance a lot and pretty much every day at some point. I'm still not very good, but I've reached a point in my life when I just want to live in the moment and enjoy the moment as much as I can...without worrying if I'm good at it or not. So....I do. And what crazy person wouldn't dance with her good looking, good dancing husband any chance she got...certainly not me. ;)
