The day I danced in front of the crowd

I participated in a Fun Walk yesterday morning sponsored by a school.

While cooling down, I did something terrible and shameful and I’m not embarrassed to share: I danced in front of the crowd!

It’s not because I am a brilliant dancer; it’s the other way around.

I’m not even in the stage but people are looking at me.

It’s not because I am famous but because I am quite known in the school.

(Note: I’m a Marist Brother novice)

People are looking at me because I look terrible when I dance!

The students said “Go Kuya Allen!” and the teachers even called me “The Best in Hataw” (in this context, hataw means Beat It!).

If I did that in high school, I wouldn’t dance like that or even run away and hide.

What did the experience taught me?

I realized that not being able to dance well is part of my imperfection. It’s not my talent.

I am not a good dancer, so what?I don’t need to be someone else.

I just need to be myself.

Well at least I made people smile with my talent-less antics.

  1. I also just sang in front a crowd last Saturday-remember I can’t sing. And yeah, most of the crowd knows me well too.
    These are just some of the things we should do to keep on growing. Good job bro.
