Sum of the Parts

Daily Movement Prompts, Thursday, July 6, 2017 edition: Sum of the Parts

I was thinking today about which repetitions I don’t notice much in life. I put on clothing every day, and rarely do I find myself thinking, “Ugh, clothes again?!” Sure, the chores of cleaning or even shopping for clothing can be a burden at different times in my life, but most of the time I enjoy the simple act of putting on fresh clothing each day with very little emotional impact. I need creativity some times, I have to plan around a full schedule some days, and on occasion clothes can be fancy and fun.

My movement choices could be more like this. I could start to welcome the movement choices I make with the same energy I put towards just wearing daily clothing. Sometimes I need creativity, some days my movements might be chosen for me already, and some days I have to plan carefully to get a chance to move.

My overall fitness and goals and efforts are a collection of the sum of the parts. A little movement here, a little movement there, and it all starts to add up. Each tiny flower in the overall plant matters, and put together it makes something wonderful and attractive.

My tiny daily choices really do add up.

How have you moved today? How will you move tomorrow?
