‘DANCE IN THE SUN is about getting started on the journey to living exactly as God created us all to be, our authentic selves. It addresses the ways in which this journey gets constantly interrupted by our habits, beliefs, and conditioning and the struggles in our lives that cloud our view so that we never catch a glimpse of our true selves. This book will show you ways to get on the path to uncovering your heart’s desires, instead of what you have been taught is realistic.’
Monique wisely develops her message in the order of her divisions f her book: Strategies to Get Through It All; How We Get Shaped (The Women in My Life); The Lives We Live Are the Sum of Our Choices; Happiness Lies Within; Attitude Isn’t Everything… It’s Just 90% of Everything; Quantity vs.Read more ›
You could look at it as the worst thing that could have happened to you, and fall directly into a “Why me?” state of mind, and simply spiral downward from there. OR you could look at it as a transition into something else, for the better.
We can end up entire in a sort of confused fog, our lives resembling the voyage of a fallen log in a large lake, living a path sketched out by whatever hits us in the water then arriving at the end of our life’s stream only to realize that we failed to live full out. In the 1980’s as a little girl she remembers hearing Cyndi Lauper’s hit song “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.” The song had an energy that was positively contagious. Her aunt, who was a teenager at the time, would dance around the house with her hair-brush microphone like Cyndi in the video. Never one to be left out of a party, she would grab the back of her shirt and dance through the house with her. The lyrics (several made up): “Some boys take a beautiful girl, and hide her away from the rest of the world. I wanna be the one to walk in the sun.”
The phrase “walk in the sun” symbolizes fun, freedom, and the confidence to be you no matter what. These lyrics were the inspiration for the title of the book.Read more ›
The book begins with an Introduction describing “Strategies to Get Through It All” and proceeds to present 17 Chapters of various strategies to provide substance to her introduction.
Specifically, the author describes the extraordinary life she leads as being such because it is one “where you are free to become who you were meant to be, instead of who you were conditioned to be, or who you believe you cannot be, because of …outside expectations and inside limitations.” In other words “Dance in the Sun is about getting started on the journey to living exactly as God created us all to be, our authentic selves.”
The story begins by describing the influence of the women in her life. Most had numerous children, often by abusive husbands, or men with whom they had taken residence that provided exposure to the children of the adults’ abundant problems, situations they obviously have not yet acquired the ability to handle - the amounts of negativity produced leading to feelings of guilt and inner tensions. Granted, her mother’s total love made up for many lost factors and her teaching her daughter that she could do anything she wanted was paramount. The unfortunate ‘other side of coin’ was the abundance of usage of alcohol. One aunt was drunk most days of the week by age 16. Another was dead because of alcohol by 32. All were subjected to abusive behavior. And she at 18, the first family member to graduate High School and gain college acceptance discovered that she was pregnant just 18 years after her mother had done the same.Read more ›
