img_1039If you follow me on Instagram – and you should cause Im so freaking awesome. You’ll notice on my Insta-stories that I dance a lot. Why do I dance? Well, its not really complicated. But I love to dance – I am horrible at it – but I love to do it.

And also? I spare y’all….I’m usually singing. And it aint purty.

My poor kids and their ear drums.

But lemme tell you – I sang the heck out of Katy Perry’s Roar. I would totally win the Voice.


Did I mention sometimes I hear laughter….stinkin kids don’t know whats good.


Enough goofing. Why do I dance?

Iimg_1036ts because I suffer from bipolar disorder and sometimes? I don’t want to. I don’t want to dance, I don’t want to sing. I don’t want to sit up and look at the world. Sometimes I don’t want to do anything but eat.

But I fight that. Why?

I have my reasons.

They are kinda obvious right?

So I dance.

When they are old and talking with their kids, I want them to remember me as silly – as someone who loved to dance. Someone who pushed herself when she didn’t want to.

I want to be brave for my kids.

Thats why I dance.
