out of shape

don't you hate when you get out of shape?
you just feel gross.
when you climb those steps and can't breathe?
most of the time when you think of being out of shape.
you think of your body.

well today i wore my favorite pumps.
they're TALL.
we're talking 4"
anyways when I got home
my feet hurrrrtttt.
i wear flats and flip flops all summer
and forgot that my feet aren't ready for heels
they're out of "pump" shape.

guitar.
anyone who plays the guitar knows.
when you first start.
ouch.
you develop calluses on your fingers.
it's kind of weird.
and if i go for more than a week or so with out playing.
i have to build them up again.
hot i know.
but i've got to keep them in shape or else.
pain.

spelling.
i had to take a spelling test yesterday.
i misspelled sincerely.
yep that's a 5th grade level word.
my brain needs some working out FOR SURE.

directions.
ever since GPS.
how many of us can read a map?
who needs to?
who even needs to know how to remember to get to harris teeter.
just mapquest it.

texting.
don't get me started.
when did we lose the art of picking up the phone?
i'm just as bad, it's just easier.

dating.
yes i know.
everyone knows this is my summer of yes.
i've told everyone about it.
i've just been sooo busy with work.
i got REAL out of shape with dating.
i forgot how.
i forgot how to let a guy date me.
so this summer.
we're working that out.
guys you can apply with my friend mandy.
she's doing the screening process.
anyways.
i had to step outside my situation and acknowledge
my dating life is out of shape.

my point is we let things get out of shape.
we spend so much time trying to keeping our bodies in shape.
but what about other things.
all those things take EXERCISE.
practice.
once you get in a routine of being out of shape.
it's hard to get back in.
it's like being obese.
years of eating mcdonalds
chipotle :)
and never working out.
hard hard habits to break and get in shape.

so when you are working out.
think about what in your life
is out of shape.

spiritual life?
when was the last time you let go and gave it to God?

love life?
when did you last love someone and expect NOTHING back?

i know when i think about it.
i have a lot to get in shape.

i'll start with dating and texting.
and see how in shape i can get:)
