What if People Look at You Funny?
Q: I tried some of that skipping.. A couple of guys looked at me funny so I had to stop. Do you have some kind of signs people can put on their backs to explain why we are skipping….AR
A: AR…I think you might be onto something. Perhaps we should design t-shirts with an explanation on the back. The only question is what would your tshirt say? I skip to celebrate freedom!? I skip for joy!? I skip to make the world a happier place!? Skipping is great exercise! Skipping is fun!?
The fact that there are people out there who might look at me funny for joyfully skipping down the street is a big part of the reason I do it. I believe our world needs as much positive energy as it can get these days…and in my opinion, people who might look at me sideways for skipping are part of the problem and not part of the solution.
Given the state of our world today….which is crazier? Expressing your joy by skipping down the street….or doing something that would inhibit that expression of joy by someone else? I don’t know about you, but I am tried of letting negativity and the fear of judgement from others rule my life.
Why not try skipping on despite a funny look here and there? You won’t believe how energizing and liberating doing so can be. Skip on!
