Blog /That's My Song
As a PEERS employee I was asked to write a blog about anything that has to do with wellness. My first thought was, "Oh no, I hate writing." Immediately, I was looking for ways to get out of writing this blog. But nope, none of my plans worked. So there I was in my cubicle days later, staring at my computer screen and listening to music on my headphones while thinking, "What can I write about?"
At first I thought I would write about my role with PEERS, but that topic was far too complicated to cover in a post. After all I only needed to write a blog post, not a book. I kept questioning myself about why I was having such a hard time writing about wellness. I talk about wellness every day. Then, my light bulb lit up I needed to focus on my strengths. I was too busy focusing on my weakness. I instantly changed my perspective on writing about my personal wellness (although, I am my favorite subject). I only had one more problem; I have never written a blog before. What if I write about what keeps me well and pretend that I am chatting on-line? That didn’t work too well. So there I was again, stuck in front of the computer and listening to music. My toes were moving to the beat as I imagined dancing at a nightclub until my feet hurt.
Suddenly "my song" came on and I started thinking of all the great memories I had about this song. I stopped thinking about my blog-writing problems for a second to smile and really listen to the lyrics, “Te quiero te amo mi amor te adoro me gustas me encantas de todo a todo tus dulces caricias me vuelven loco soy todo tuyo de cualquier modo.” I don’t have the words to really express the pleasure I got from dancing in my cubicle. However, I had a task to finish and that was writing this blog about my personal wellness. But for some reason I was in too great of a mood to write a blog. I was wiggling, dancing and, enjoying the memories from all of the songs that I call "my song" when I hear them. I was reminiscing over the many times I was in the car jumping every time one of "my songs" came on and saying, "Oh girl, that's my song! Turn it up!" All of a sudden I realized music and dancing are my wellness tools. I guess writing this blog was not too bad after all.
