We’ve all likely heard the expression “fake it ‘til you make it.” Well, the next day that is exactly what I did and all I wore was a skirt and a smile. Oddly, for the first time in my life, I felt like I blended into the crowd. The feeling of fitting in was more bizarre than being half naked among a few hundred strangers. Nudity suddenly became a non-issue.Evening came and the communal bonfire was lit. The full moon provided a spotlight on the hand-drummers, belly dancers and all the other lovely characters.
Every body type imaginable was vividly represented. The scene was a combination of National Geographic and Dr. Seuss, and I was lucky enough to be a part of it.
That moment in time changed me forever. Embracing life to this degree filled me with more joy than I had ever experienced. There was no more room within me for judgment toward myself or anyone else.
Appreciating everyone’s differences instead of rejecting them, makes life much more enjoyable than I ever imagined. This epiphany overcame me. I ripped my clothes off and started dancing around the fire with the rest of the community.
