Strength is the capacity to handle what life brings your way. Sometimes what life brings your way is a detour with a hill. When it does, do you abandon your adventure in exchange for the certainty and ease of a flat road? Nope. You’re fit.
When you are fit, you can carry heavy mirrors from here to there. You can also pause for many minutes while your husband takes pictures to document that you are fit enough to carry heavy mirrors from here to there.

You can take a bike ride
for any reason
in any season
on any day
for work or play
in any outfit
cause you’re fit.
When the wind steals your custom chapeau made by your friend, you can run and steal it back.

You know that movement doesn't have to be strict and rigid in order to be beneficial. In fact, the more playful the better!

You ain't too proud to play 'cause you're fit.
Midsummer morning trips to the nursery, of course!
