"Do not yield to discouragement in the face of difficulties and do not abandon yourselves to false solutions which often seem the easiest way to overcome problems. Do not be afraid to make a commitment, to face hard work and sacrifice, to choose the paths that demand fidelity and constancy, humility and dedication. Be confident in your youth and its profound desires for happiness, truth, beauty and genuine love! Live fully this time in your life so rich and so full of enthusiasm."
"Let us look with greater hope to the future; let us encourage one another on our journey."
~ Papa Benedict XVI

If I've Learned One Thing from Our Kids....

it's you don't need fancy clothes to play (or exercise.)

So all you adults out there waiting to start running, riding, whatever while you find the perfect outfit, shoes, etc ...STOP.  Get out there and go!

Our kids run (as in 'go for a run') in regular shorts and t-shirts ... you can too!

At first i laughed to myself - those silly kids.  Then i realized that it actually made sense.  While we adults wait - wait for the perfect time, the perfect outfit, the perfect equipment - kids just go.  They run, they play, they scooter, they play baseball, soccer.   There is no reason not too.   There is no. reason. not. too.  

So the next time someone asks if you'd like to go for a run, or play ball, say yes!  And forget the Fancy Pants!  ;)
