In the past two years, I've championed many hurtles. Some took a bit of scratching and clawing but they didn't kill me. I'm challenged every day. One of my dear SparkFriends, STARDUSTD, posted a photo that screamed, "I get it!"
She's has the heart of a warrior and is out there doing it "every damn day!" I wanted that shirt. I looked all over for it. Funny thing is NIKE was ending it's run. There were limited numbers, sizes, and colors. They were dwindling fast! She told me where she got her's. I went to Lady Foot Locker and tried a women's XL. Didn't faze me a bit to be trying on women's tees! I was on a quest! It fit! BUT for some reason, I didn't pick it up. After Christmas, I was still obsessing over it. I went back, tried it on, and it was so tight. The first thing I thought, for a split second, was that I must've gained weight! OMG!
I took the shirt back to the rack. The clerk told me there was no XXL. I looked all of the XLs and found one was different. I took it back to the dressing room, held my breath, and tried it on...
Yeah, it fit! Of course, it looks better on STARDUSTD. In fact, her whole photo is much better and inspiring than mine! BUT, we have the same focus! We're SparkFriends and we support each other on the journey. This is just one more way I want to support her! I thank her for the inspiration and the message!
"EVERY DAMN DAY!"
