“I Hope You Dance” the Line That Encourages Us

Whenever there are new things or trends around us, there are those who tend to hesitate and wonder if it is even worth it to try to take that first step into the unknown. It is normal for us to fear what we don’t know or what we aren’t sure about.

The fear for the unknown has always been a problem for us and, at times, it holds us back from trying things that could potentially be good for us or our well-being. It is a very scary thing to take that first plunge but when we eventually do take it, most of the time, the experience becomes very rewarding.

For some of us, we need help taking that first plunge. The support from others who can reassure us that we are going to be fine no matter what is very helpful. Fortunately for us, Lee Ann Womack knows just what to say to inspire us to try with the simple words “I Hope You Dance.”

This song, from beginning to end, is just one inspirational speech to motivate us to try new things that come in our lives all bundled up in an awesomely melodic song. The lyrics of the song is very memorable as well, with some of them directed at motivating and inspiring such as:

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean

Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens

Promise me that you’ll give faith a fighting chance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

I hope you dance


Never settle for the path of least resistance

Livin’ might mean takin’ chances, but they’re worth takin’

Lovin’ might be a mistake, but it’s worth makin’

Don’t let some Hellbent heart leave you bitter

These are just examples of the awesomeness of the lyrics of this song. It truly inspires those of us who hesitate. To those who falter and feel scared to move always remember that when you are faced with the chance to dance, “I Hope You Dance” and be better because of it.
