Some people pledge to lose weight, others to save money or kick a bad habit. But this New Year, Carrie Bickmore pledged to let music back into her life.
Writing for Stellar, The Project host reflected on the days, pre-children and “boring adult commitments”, when she was the first person to leap onto the dance floor and the last to leave.
“My signature move was the unfairly named ‘tart drop’, but I don’t get it out much anymore,” the mother of two wrote. “My inability to drop down to the floor and get back up again without falling flat on my butt or doing my knee prevents such fun.”
Times may have have changed but her love (or “love, love, love”) for music hasn’t.
“It does something to my body and to my soul,” she wrote. “I get goosebumps, I wanna cry, I wanna sing and, most of all, I wanna dance.”
Driven by this passion, the 36-year-old found other ways to bring the beat back in 2016.
