I don’t mean skipping a meal, skipping a class, skipping work. I mean the real skip where you are walking and suddenly you are so excited the spring in your step turns into a skip. I bet it hasn’t happened since you were a child. Skipping is a joyous hop that can lead you merrily to your next destination. So why don’t we skip any more? Oh sure it can be because we are adults and as adults we don’t want to look, well, childish.
But if you had the right to skip, and no one was watching, would you?
It’s unfortunate that in the fast paced world that we live in filled with schedules, texts, meetings, and commutes, no one even has the ability to skip any more. We sit in our cars or our desks all day and try to sound enthusiastic on the phone to our clients. We lead idle lives full of fast food, stomach pills and quick fixes for our energy like chocolate or drinks. Unfortunately we are driven by our environment and have not mastered the art of driving ourselves with our inner happiness.
When you are truly happy and energetic and you are living the life of your dreams there is a natural high that occurs. Your body actually gains momentum and creates an energy that has been locked up inside of you just waiting to be expressed. And when it is released, no one cares what you are doing they just want to know how you are doing it so that they can do it as well.
The key is to find that vision that is inside of you and are afraid to share with anyone because of what they might think. Well it doesn’t matter what they think. They want to skip too but don’t know how. So, why not start the trend? Start skipping! Dig deep inside and find that inner passion and let it out! It has been hidden for too long and when you release it, I guarantee you the first thing that comes back is that spring in your step.
If you continue to lead a happy life, living your dreams, that spring will eventually turn into a skip!
