Have you been physically active of late, dearest? By this we mean: Have you been given the ‘go ahead’ to be somewhat more physically active? Yes?
Yes, I have been a little more physically active of late. And I have been enjoying myself tremendously.
And, pray tell, dearest, what have you been doing?
I have been dancing.
And what type of dancing have you been engaged in, dearest?
I have been learning the Cha Cha Cha.
Aha, dearest, we do recall suggesting that the Latin style of dance would become that which would be given to you to do. Yes?
Yes, I do remember being advised of that. However, the covid-19 virus has put a stop to our social dancing and our lessons. Before that Keith’s knee injury prevented us from practising our ballroom dancing in general.
Indeed so, dearest, we appreciate your tale. It has been some time since you and our Dear Heart Keith stepped upon a dance floor. Yes?
Yes, this is true. We haven’t stepped upon a dance floor since last year.
And you are missing this?
Yes, I am missing this; though this past week has been delightful learning the Cha Cha Cha technique.
This does not come easily, dearest?
No, I dare say I’ll need to put a lot of work into the practice sessions to attain the degree of satisfaction of doing it well.
You are a perfectionist, dearest?
I hope not, though, I do like to do my best at whatever I attempt to do.
Well said, dearest, well said. It is not perfectionism we seek in our lives. Is this true, dearest?
Yes, I believe it to be true. I know I will not attain perfection of the dance, so to speak. I do, however, seek to know that I have done the best I can.
And why is this, dearest?
There is a sense of order and stability in this type of thinking. On the one hand I enjoy the effort and the results of my work. On the other I know there is a degree or a level of attainment for each of us. This may mean that I may achieve 50% of a known achievable position; whereas my friend’s achievable rate may be 90%.
Were I not to have achieved my achievable value due to not putting in the effort required I would certainly feel disappointed in myself.
And can you say, dearest, that you have been disappointed thus far?
No, I cannot say I am disappointed in myself because I, in general, do my best in all things.
This is true, dearest, this is true. And this is a value that all can aspire, dearest; the value of being the best that one can be. Or, achieving the level of attainment chosen as one’s known achievable value before entering The Fantasy: A value that once known accommodates all.
Many Blessings, dearest
Many Blessings to All
