White People Really Can’t Dance (And Other Things I Learned in Tanzania)

1. Some things transcend language – like Uno. And Celine Dion.

2. The true embodiment of self belief is a four-year-old doing triple back-flips over a rock.

3. You can be completely outside your comfort zone and still feel like you are exactly where you are meant to be.

4. “Right now” can mean in an hour or a week (but probably no less than that).

5. You don’t need to have anything in order to give everything.

6. White people really can’t dance.

7. Happiness is a choice. No matter how much heartache in your past or how much uncertainty your future, you can still smile in the present – and mean it.

8. If sweeping was an Olympic sport, Tanzania would surely take gold.

9. Education is a gift not everyone receives, and should be treasured accordingly.

10. The key to transforming a dream into reality is simply an unwavering belief that it will happen – sometime, somehow.

  1. This really made me stop and appreciate the challenges I’m faced with. Sometimes you need something (or someone!) to make you slow down and remember that you do believe in yourself, it’s just a little misplaced t the moment.

  2. Very true, Sandra. I think you need to have a truckload of self-belief to be taking on another year-long writing challenge! 😉

    You are a great writer Cat! Can’t wait to hear everything! Love, K

  4. I agree with 6., with some few exceptions. And like 3 very much. Nice blog.

  5. Entertaining and inspiring post. I’m looking forward to reading more from your blog. Oh, and I’m the embodiment of 6.

  6. Beautiful Cat, just beautiful. And so true – having visited Tanzania myself! Sending you much love form the homeland. xx
