I Hope You Dance in 2021

I was a senior in high school, and on the last day of class (and high school!), our very sweet homeroom teacher handed out lyrics to this song. She told us she wanted to play it for us. It was such a sweet gesture, and now I want to do the same for you, us, for everyone reading this πŸ™‚

In this new year 2021, I hope you dance ❀️

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder,
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger,
May you never take one single breath for granted,
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed,

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance… I hope you dance…

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance,
Never settle for the path of least resistance,
Livin’ might mean takin’ chances, but they’re worth takin’,
Lovin’ might be a mistake, but it’s worth makin’,

Don’t let some Hell bent heart leave you bitter,
When you come close to sellin’ out reconsider,
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance,
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.

I hope you dance… I hope you dance.
I hope you dance… I hope you dance.

(Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along,
Tell me who wants to look back on their years
And wonder where those years have gone.)

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean,
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens,
Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance,

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance.
Dance…


I hope you dance.
I hope you dance… I hope you dance.
I hope you dance… I hope you dance.

(Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along,
Tell me who wants to look back on their years
And wonder where those years have gone.)

Many hugs and happy new year! πŸ₯°

  1. A wonderful message especially as we close the door to 2020 and look ahead to 2021!

    PS. I started a Korean horror series on Netflix called Sweet Home. It’s fantastic!

      • No worries! πŸ€— I watch on an app called Viki. They have lots of Korean shows, but they also have Chinese, Japanese, and other. Mostly Asian, nothing from Latin America that I’ve seen.

        It’s like Hulu, where you can pay to remove ads and such. I got Viki after Dramafever suddenly disappeared 😦
