Well, I've been getting a lot of flack lately from my guy friends and high praise from the women in my life. Why? Because I'm taking dance lessons at Arthur Murray and I really like it. Actually, I've been taking personal lessons twice a week and going to the Group Classes almost every night. It has been a wonderful social activity and an opportunity to do something that I thought I might never get a chance to do. I'm not going to lie, the lessons aren't cheap, but if you take advantage of the Group Classes, it really is a great deal.
So, why am I bothering telling you this? I don't work at Arthur Murray and I'm not getting a kick-back. Well, I started to realize that lately, I've been taking it upon myself to personally work on finding activities to do and record them in my journal. It doesn't matter what it is, but I've made an effort to do something each day that is new and exciting. Actually, this will probably be the most interesting year of journal writing and my goal is to make my posterity think that I am a modern-day Renaissance Man. :)
We get Support Center write-ins all the time asking what the Journal Jar is for. Some of you love it and others want to know how to hide it (it's in the 'My Settings Display' section). But really, the Journal Jar is for you if you ever run into a situation where you don't know what to write about.
I would encourage you to make an effort to do something, either by yourself or with your family, that you've never done before. Create those new experiences and share your thoughts and feelings in your journal for your posterity. Reading some of my past entries from when I started dance class is such a riot and I can only hope that I could see the look on my grandchild's face when they read it. Priceless...
Oh, and if you read this post and you're at one of the Time Out For Women events, come on by and we'll do a little Cha-Cha or Salsa for kicks. Hey, I've seen 'So You Think You Can Dance' and it seems like the best dancers are LDS. ;)
