My End of Day Routine

Flashdance

I haven’t worked full-time in a long, long time but the first thing I would do, without variation, is to change my clothes. Off came the Laura Ashley  flowery dress with the shiny, black pumps or the sky-colored blue suit; on came jeans, a loose shirt, and clogs. Never being the real corporate type, the clothes I had to wear to work were my corporate persona. My real persona danced around my studio apartment to music, like “Flashdance” when I got home. I may not have looked like Jennifer Beals but I felt like I was her in my comfortable clothing, singing out loud to music, arms swinging, heels hopping. The inexplicable feeling of freedom as your entire body sighs in relief and the automatic happiness that a young, independent woman feels in her own space. Enchanting.

  1. I used to have-to stop my car to do the maniac dance whenever it came on the radio! It’s the kind of calling that hits strong wherever you might be when it comes on, regardless of where you are, who you are, or how old you are. 🙂 Dance parties in the kitchen rule!
