Reasons To Be Fit #28

When you are fit you know that your body is not a machine to be programmed, not a work in progress to be perfected, not sin to be punished, not a vessel to be purified.

You know that your body is the flesh and manifestation of your soul. It is your home.

So you aren't afraid to stop mid-run, to lie in the grass, to smell the sweet decay of fall, savor the cool air, because you know that real fitness ~ the kind that sustains a lifetime ~ is about much more than numbers on scale or a barbell or a distance-tracking app. Real fitness is not just about measuring physical accomplishments, but about finding the right mindset and connecting to your heart-space.

When you are fit, you know that your body is, without a doubt, something special to be enjoyed.
