    I hope nobody but me. Everyone should have their own rhythm.

    I have never danced to the beat of my own drum, my whole life I have always let everyone else lead my life and most of that happened intentionally. I let them take the lead due to fear of offending them or hurting them. That left me with no sense of self or who I am or who I wanna be and that was a huge struggle. Things have changed for the better and I’m learning to use my voice and dance to my own beat for once.

    Right now I am not feeling that anyone is dancing to the beat of my drum. Which I am realizing is ok sometimes you have to dance to your on beat and it may be all alone. You have to find like-minded people to dance to the beat of your drum. Sometimes your energy is different from everyone else and you don’t have anyone dancing to the beat of your drum.

    I lead my own beat or rhythm. Others have their own percussion instruments and if they wish to join in ( as some have) they are welcome..

    I do. I think we all need to find our own rhythm, our own beat….

    I follow the rhythm of life as it presents itself. Often in others around me. So I guess I dance to the soulful beat of the universe, which then includes everyone and everything all the time.( if I chose to be conscious of it).

    My loved ones have their own drums. I wouldn’t have it any other way. ๐Ÿ˜Š

    I like to drum and I like to dance. Not sure whoโ€™s dancing with me though. Iโ€™m trying to not be too concerned with whoโ€™s dancing with me and concentrate more on my own rhythm and keeping the beat going.

    I took the question to mean, am I imposing my drumbeat on others? The answer is no. I have noticed, though, that my grown-up kids will adjust their beats out of kindness and respect when I visit them.

      I had the same thought. Thanks for putting it in print.

      I think kindness and respect was part of your drumbeat, was it not? You’ve done well that they’ve picked up on that. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I dance to the beat of my drum, which is my heart. And when ‘my body, speech, and mind are in perfect oneness’ (a courageous endeavor in which I fail too often), others are able to join my dance. ๐ŸŒท๐Ÿ’œ๐ŸŒธ

    I am extremely grateful that I have a husband who encourages me to play my drum, dances to it and gives me loving honest feedback when my beat is off.

    Only I dance to the beat of my own drum…no others can hear it, feel it or experience it.

    Such a musical question! When kindred people asked to be helped for insight about some of their questions to life, using the drum I once had the pleasure and honor to make by myself was the bridge for them to find out about own inner replies to their inquiry. According to their reply, this has been a gift to them given by spirit and of support. I am happy and grateful to have been able to be of support to them finding inner answers to their situation at hand.

    Unless my drum isnโ€˜t in complete tune and rhythm with the drum of the supreme being, I would advice everybody to find their own rhythm. But we can try together to play the rhythm of lovebeat, servebeat, behappybeat, behonestbeatโ€ฆ. Dig it!

    People who know me well.
    The rhythm of my drum is very dynamic. My mother used to call me “Johnny laughs, Johnny cries”. That is a Dutch expression. When I read a book I can cry like a suckling pig on one page, and fall off my chair with laughter on the next. Also situations in my life. Crying and laughing are always near to each other. People who know me well follow me, my drum, with love. That’s how I experience it.๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜‚

      Christine, your post makes me think of Gibran’s poem “Joy and Sorrow.”

        Thank you, Carol – here’s a nice link to the poem: http://www.katsandogz.com/gibran/onjoy.php

          Mica, Thank you. What a wonderful link. It connects you to every poem in Gibran’s book, “The Prophet.” I was first introduced to that book in the 1970’s and it has been on my bookshelf every since. I draw inspiration and hopefully deeper wisdom from it each time I read it. It is definitely a keeper!

            Yes, Carol – it is indeed a valuable book. I read about children not being shot from the arrow, as I recall, at a church service around 1960

        Dear Carol, Thank you so much for this beautiful poem. It touches me enormously. As I read it, I felt a lot of emotion in my throat. I think I will reread it often.๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ’ž
