Don't have the 66 or 65; I was just laid off, so I will have to be content with the 6,26, and 7. 
Only had to take the bar once, so I guess I'm ahead of the curve!

Not sure how to describe this, but in 2007, I completely lost the desire to dance altogether. I can;t think of anything that triggered it, but in early 2008, it came back as mysteriously as it disappeared, and now shows no signs of waning.

Dancing - The BEST exercise in the world and A LOT prettier than going to the gym, and CHEAPER than a therapist!

was it associated with any other events in your life - career change, personal issues etc perhaps?  I went through a similar phase when my marraige broke up and with moving to a new area.

interesting....perhaps you did not have any goals at that time and something or someone unconsciously triggered a new enthusiasm.

i THInk its the law of diminishing returns, that my economics(filthy subject Undecided ) illustrated by comparing it to drinking beer. The first pint is delicious, the second pint is better as the alcohol starts to relax your inhibitions, the third pint is okay, and the fourth and any others are just going to make you feel bad.

i think that people often expect to feel good about dancing always;

having done 5 rhythm dancing; it was very much about dancing with what you feel in that moment ; wherever you are now;

try that and see if it makes a difference; put on whatever music feels like it reflects and go with it.

yes.....I believe that we have peaks and troughs and lots of things influence our feelings and desire for our passion of dancing....I try not to worry about it if it comes back all well and good if not time to find another interest.....but I am not in that postion yet. Tongue

I don't know why I started dancing and I can't say I have a conscious desire to dance - but I find myself on the dancefloor as much as possible so something inside is driving it Roll Eyes  Other than the obvious biological things it may be the only activity I do that has its own internal driver about which I know as little as why I want to breathe...

It's not the dancing. Dancing does always feel good.

Then try to find a way to let it happen.  You may have to make some life changes - we can't afford to loose our passions Wink
