Happy Friday!

I am sending you off into the weekend with one of my favorite quotes:



Sing like no one’s listening,
love like you’ve never been hurt,
dance like nobody’s watching,
and live like its heaven on earth.”
~Mark Twain



I think these women get it.


Can you dance like nobody’s watching?

    Wow! That was funny. I dance all the time like no one is watching, because they usually aren’t and I don’t care if they are. But my body doesn’t do those weird jerking motions like those girls. They sure had fun, though! I love your quote and the blog title was awesome! How Mark Twain rolls. Classic.

    Ha ha haaaa. I love to dance like those girls, only they gots the moves on me. People think I’m weird anyway. 🙂 That is one of my favorite quotes too. Have a happy weekend.

    Okay, I’ve heard that quote a million times and I had NO idea that it was from Mark Twain! Sadly, I have to admit that I only dance like nobody’s watching… when nobody’s watching. I have periodic one-woman wild-hair dances to Shakira and Lady Gaga and Britney when I’m home and need to pump up the energy to keep writing, but yeeeeeah… no way I’m going to let the rest of the world actually see what that looks like. 😛

      I would say I dance WHEN nobody’s watching, but when my husband watched this video he said, “That looks like you!” So he’s seen it too.
      Oh the things I continue to learn about myself! Ha ha. 🙂

    I just saw this quote recently (although I forget where) at the precise moment I needed its message. Now here it is again. Love the synchronicity of the universe.

    That’s a great quote. Mark Twain has some of the best! And that video makes me want to get up and dance whether anyone or no one’s watching! Have a great weekend, Coleen.

    The only time I dance like that is when I want to embarrass the kids. Naw, I’m kidding. I dance like that around the house all the time, but don’t have nearly the courage I need to do it in public. After watching those ladies, I think I will! Love the quote, too. I have to print that out and keep it on my desk.

    I love that. It’s not only a great way to be happy — and stay happy — but you can really stay in shape this way, too. LOL.

    Thanks for the great video, Coleen!

    Cute video…but I’m with Lena. If I’m going to dance like no one is watching, it’s definitely going to be when no one is watching. Even having taken dance in school I still can’t dance. Maybe I’ll change the saying around a little to… workout in the pool like no one is watching! 🙂

    Very cute video….and I just love Mark Twain sayings!

    I love Mark Twain. He was one of the wisest of men. What a fantastic quote! I had never heard that one before. Thank you for sharing it Coleen. Btw, how are you and the family Coleen? I hope everyone is doing well. 🙂
