"I've got a perfect body,
but sometimes I forget.
I've got a perfect body
'cause my eyelashes
catch my sweat."
~ Regina Spektor
Like most people, I have a laundry list of things I'd like to change about my body. Just this morning, drinking coffee in bed, I rattled off a short version of my list to my husband. I even put a price tag on such changes.
"That's the price of a car," he said.
"Yep. And just like a car, I'll depreciate," I said.
I got up, made a second pot of coffee, put my ipod on the dock and put "Folding Chair" on repeat. It's become my mantra. It got me through 30 rope climbs at the gym the other day. It got me my first muscle up today. It will get me through my first CrossFit Open workout this Saturday.
"I've got a perfect body because my eyelashes catch my sweat. Yes, they do, they do."
My body does what I push it to do. Not always the first time I ask, but eventually. My body is perfect. My eyelashes do indeed catch my sweat.
Your body is perfect too. Yes, it is, it is. Work up a sweat and you'll know it's true. Yes, you will, you will.
Then come and open up your folding chair next to me. We'll tear up our laundry lists and scatter them in the breeze.
