FIT@50 / week 23
Less than half:
Becoming fit often requires sacrifice. Be it food, ice cream, cake (yes, I went there), and often the bed.
Hold on, this ain’t frisky talk. It’s about years focused on accumulation.
Once I got fit, gathering meant less.
The bed is a regular reminder. My kiddo still comes to sleep in the big bed on occasion.
After five minutes, he has twisted and twirled and torqued until I’m on the very edge.
Sleep may go interrupted until a hazy morning’s awakening, but then it happens.
He hugs me and says, “I love you.”
Less than half – sacrifices all become worth it.
I just had one of those moments with my 12 year-old daughter. She’s brilliant smart, Scott. Not quite MENSA smart, but close. Well, her little sister is the social butterfly so she was crying because she’s not popular like her sister… Broke my heart and made me proud at the same time – how many kids can articulate something like that? Man, I love that kid…
Anyway, thank God I got what I did… instead of what I deserved. Great post Chief.
