One day, I was looking through the applications on my phone to see which I need and which I could do without. One of the apps that I have on my phone is an app that identifies music. All you have to do is put your phone’s speakers up to the car’s (or radio’s) speakers and the app will tell you the name of the song, the artist, among other information.

One of the songs that I heard on the radio was a song by John Michael Montgomery: “Life’s a Dance,” which is a song on the album that he released in 2003 called The Very Best of John Michael Montgomery.

Every time I hear of that song, I’m immediately drawn to the chorus:

Life’s a dance you learn as you go
Sometimes you lead, sometimes you follow
Don’t worry about what you don’t know
Life’s a dance you learn as you go

To me, it means you shouldn’t always feel like you need to be in control of everything in life. It’s okay if you feel like you don’t know what you are doing. Life is all about learning. There are many times in life when you will learn something new. Be open to those times. You don’t need to know everything. No one knows everything. When you have a question, find someone who knows the answer and take this as an opportunity to learn something new.

This seems very pertinent in this time where we are just starting to learn about the extreme severity of Coronavirus. In the last few weeks, stores have closed; schools have closed (some until further notice, others for two weeks; some have even called the rest of the year off due to the virus).

In this time of uncertainty, we are learning a new dance. Due to social distancing, it can seem like we are dancing alone, but we are all in this together. Learning this new dance is challenging as we don’t know all the steps, but we do know that like all things, this too shall pass.

The best thing to do now is to take things slow as news and information is coming fast and furious.

I hope you stay safe and healthy in this time.
