I want to start off the week (and my first blog post ever) with something fun and inspiring. A friend of mine sent me a link to this video the other day. It’s a music video / documentary about a quirky 60-year old man living in Los Angeles named Glenn Bruno who, after losing his wife five years ago and falling into depression, decided to follow his lifelong dream of becoming a dancer.

“The love of my life Robin passed away,? Glenn shares at the very beginning of the clip.

?I became very depressed, but three years ago I dedicated myself to follow my dreams of being a performer, a dancer. And that?s why I do it, I dance for Robin.?

Surrounded by photographs and little reminders of his late wife, Glenn breaks out into a joyful and unabashed dance in his room. It’s charming and moving at the same time. I can?t help but think about that Mark Twain quote: ?Sing like no one is listening, love like you?ve never been hurt, dance like nobody’s watching, and live like it’s heaven on earth.? Glenn Bruno is pure manifestation of this.

A little fun fact that makes this video extra special is that the directors had initially cast Glenn in a small role for a completely different video concept after he had sent them a cellphone clip of himself spinning and dancing.

However, after meeting him and learning about his incredible story, the directors decided to change the video?s concept all together ? a love lost and regained through dance.

Watching Glenn as he finally realized his dream six decades in is beautiful. The pure joy he experiences at that moment is so profound you can feel it through the screen.

His story is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit, and a great reminder that we’re never too old or too broken to pursue our dreams and find happiness again.
