A Love Letter to Active Wear
I woke up late, tired, unsure if I was even human. I somehow managed to climb out of bed and stumble into the bathroom to get the sleep out of my eyes and morning breath banished. I get the kid up, fed and ready for the day. 15 minutes of staring at my closet, nothing seems like the right outfit. Then I hear the beautiful song of angels, it’s as if they are whispering in my ears.
*Church of England Children’s Choir* ACTIVE WEAR!
The name just flows over my ears like a warm summer breeze. Yes, how could I have not known? You were always there. You were the ones always holding me up (and in) when I needed you the most. You were the one that never judged that I hadn’t showered in two days. You make me feel like I am achieving so much more than I ever am.
Every time I put you on, I feel like I am embraced in a hug all day. Suddenly my rolls and misshapen areas aren’t so noticeable and I have a pep in my step. I no longer look like a frumpy mom. Suddenly I’m a kick-ass, rocking life, act together woman that can achieve anything.
From playing with my family to running errands, you give me the ability to get it all done. As women’s love affair with you has grown, so has your style. You’ve gone from crazy track suits to stylish apparel that our favorite celebrities are proud to be snapped in.
Your comfort and beauty transform me into a confident version of myself. As I write this love letter to you, I appreciate the warmth you entwine me in. Oh my active wear, I love you.
