'Joy is Peace dancing. Peace is Joy at rest.'
In 2012 Michelle Jenneke went to work.
Heat 2 of the 100m Hurdles for Women in the IAAF World Junior Championships.
Representing her country. Serious business. Very stressful.
'Having fun,' the commentator reports before the race.
'Constantly dancing around.'
'Happy about performing.'
'Youthful exuberance coming out.'
'Let's see if she can buckle down and put together a technically good race,' the commentator cautioned.
Ms Jenneke had a very precise Widget to make.
Sponsors to please.
Coaches to honour.
Her workplace was live on TV.
She kept dancing and smiling right up to her blocks.
Then went to work making her Widget.
'Very aggressive to that first hurdle,' the commentator said.
Focus and determination. No smile for 13.52 seconds.
Michelle Jenneke won by 0.19 of a second. (Literally less than the blink of an eye.)
No room for error. But enough to dance.
'I get this feeling when I'm going to compete and I just get really happy and really energetic.'
'When I'm out on the track I'm thinking about what I'm doing, not focussing on them.'
'It's really about whether you're happy with yourself.'
We can be joyful in our work.
We can dance and make our Widget.
We don't need our boss's permission.
Just our own.
We don't need to wait for a private moment.
The world craves our dancing.
It begins by being happy with ourselves.
Becoming who we are.
Last week, two and a half years later, Michelle Jenneke danced as usual behind her blocks because she's just really happy.
