Triumph Over Heartbreak – Alice

Hello, you!   We need to talk about the pure sass master and conqueror of heartbreak, my best friend – Alice.     Last year, Alice was with a guy who we’ll call Tom (to save him the shame).

Alice called me in hysterics, when I answered the phone the first thing I heard was her sobbing ‘Sophie, Tom’s just broken up with me’.

If you don’t like dancing, that’s fine, this probably won’t apply to you… But if you DO, and you’re not feeling great mentally or if you’re just having a crap day, for the love of God, GET UP AND DANCE. I can tell you now, you more than likely won’t feel like it, the thought of moving with enthusiasm and energy might make you wince, but do it. Even if it’s just for one song. That song might only last three minutes – you could do it while you’re brushing your teeth. You see, I was raised in a family that has always encouraged me… View Post
