DANCE until you are 84, with the people that you love

So I went to a wedding this past weekend. It made me remember how important marriage is and how the world is changing constantly everyday and so are peoples morals. Its so easy now days to give up on marriage, the divorce rate amongst the 25-30 year age group is extremely high, divorce is the easy way out. 

To see a couple dedicate themselves to one another on their wedding day is a beautiful thing there is so much love and happiness, on the day it seems as though it is going to be forever which it should be but now days forever in many instances turns to a short memory of the past.

It took you long enough to fight for someone’s love and their hearts and you should fight forever to keep it. I don’t know about marriage yet, but what I do know is I believe marriage is for life and no matter what; you should fight for the person you decided to spend the rest of your life with.

I felt inspired to write this blogg as at the wedding I met an inspirational women at the age of 84 who was the queen of the party, dressed in a baby blue frock dancing up a storm in the middle of the dance floor, not only did she have incredible rhythm but she kicked up her leg as though she was doing a can-can show and in an instant won me over in a heart beat.

She drank, she smoked filter cigarettes and had a smile on her that could light up a room and she was still wearing her wedding ring. Her husband died a few years ago and it made me think how hard it must be to lose your life partner but she was still so dedicated to him. A wedding ring is round because it stands for ETERNITY. We should love the people we decide to spend the rest of our lives with until eternity and if they leave this place before you, continue to love life. Surround yourself with people you love, dance to music that makes you feel happy and kick your leg higher than you have ever kicked it before even if you are 84.

I want to share this with you as a gentle thought on how you live your lives. Take care of your body; exercise so you can dance at your grandchildren’s wedding one day. Have a tequila because it makes you laugh and so you can cheers to the people who have made the decision to dedicate their lives to one another.

Be happy in the space that you are in and if you are unhappy, CHANGE not for anyone else but for YOURSELF. Get rid of the negative people, meet new ones who are going to follow your dreams, make NEW friends.

I know it has been said that life is SHORT, but everyday try to be inspired, try to inspire others.

Be Positive and your life will be filled with Love, Light and Dancing. So here’s to all the married couples who work at their marriages everyday to make it work. Fight for it; listen to music that makes you kick your legs in the air no matter how old you are.
