When I tell people that I have twins, they’re surprised. When I tell people that I’m a writer and a photographer, they’re intrigued. When I tell people that I tap dance, they look at me as if I were a totally different person.
I started taking tap dance lessons a few years ago and it’s been making me irrationally happy ever since. It is a place where I feel completely safe. A place where I retreat when words fail me and I haven’t taken out my camera for weeks. A place that puts me back together as an individual when too many people are depending on me. And reminds me of my own strength and ability to venture beyond my comfort zone.
Some call it a hobby. I like to call it my little special thing.
What about you? What is that little thing that no one suspects you to have or do and that makes you feel special? Whether you know how to cook, play an instrument, fly a plane, sketch, sing, speak different languages or moonwalk, please share in the comment section below.
