This is what a wise man once told me:

"If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail."

The wise man who told me this was actually my husband. He obviously didn't make up the phrase, but he said it at exactly the right moment; and through my life I have seen how true this is, time and time again. For example:

A chiropractor who has a quick alignment solution for anything that ails you

A vegan who knows how to solve everybody's digestive disorders

A carpenter who is asked to stop a leak

A shoulder surgeon who gives you shoulder surgery for what turned out to be a herniated C5 disc (yup, that happened)

A cook who feeds you any time you are upset.

If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

Funny that we say this as if it is a bad thing... but perhaps it is simply a solid life strategy.

What is yours?

Here's what mine looks like:

I am worried about the economy: I dance.

I am hurt by my husband/children/friend: I dance.

I am afraid of aging: I dance.

I am upset with national politics: I dance.

I cannot control the outcome of... anything: I dance.

I am tired/weary/sad/happy: I dance.

I am overweight: I dance.

I am out of shape: I dance.

I am lonely: I dance.

I am in need of a friend: I dance.

Dance is my anchor, my salvation, my solution, my friend, my life strategy.

Dance is my hammer and LIFE is my nail.

This is WHY I DANCE.
