Demystification Guru

Just because we don't understand something, doesn't mean it isn't understandable.

My husband is home sick with a nasty-sounding cold. I think I also have the germ but I have managed to stave off the manifestations of the cold through clean living and a liberal ingestion of Cold FX. The whole "clean living" thing is sort of a joke but not really, in that I have been working at making myself fit, not drinking (much), going to the gym, and contemplating running outside. So I think it is paying off in increased resistance to germs.

Interestingly, today when I visited A Dress A Day as I am wont to do, she was writing about athletic wear. The things you find on the internet! There is a company I have never heard of making athletic skirts! Fun stuff, I say. Also apropos of what Erin wrote on her blog, I too have never thought of myself as "athletic". I always associated athletic with organized sports like basketball, football, some kind of ball. I don't have that kind of coordination - you should see me throw something for a dog! Early release, late release - I never know where the thing will end up. And yet, I always rode a bike, I rode horses for a while, I figure skated - not very well but good enough to be in the novice category on the university team. In fact, I am proud to say I lettered in sports at university. Now I am into my own version of yoga, I lift weights, I still ride the bike, I get out.

I guess the "lesson" here is not to label yourself. If you don't fit into a category, so what.

... or maybe try on new labels to see how they fit. Either way you push the envelope and keep yourself from going stale.

I like the idea of new labels. Maybe I'll try that next.
