The Story of 3 Long Sleeve T-Shirts
I just can’t help but think that this is the stuff that sliding doors are made of. I’m constantly amazed on where I am in my life. It blows my mind to think that if one certain thing never happened a whole list of events would have never been there to remember.
I’ve been blessed in my young adult life. My chain of events have placed me in a very settling, and exiting place, which is exactly what I want and need in my life right now.
I am sitting in my garage at this very moment. (God bless, this amazing garage. I am extremely thankful I have such a great place to hoop in.) Anyway, as I started to clean this garage, I came across 3 of my long sleeve t-shirts. That means ladies and gentlemen that I was out here at least 3 times in this garage moving. I probably hooped so much that I got sweaty and I had to take off my long sleeve shirt.
When I went back to Effingham (yes, for those of you who didn’t know, that is a real town), IL, several people mentioned to me I had lost weight. I have had a gradual weight loss and I‘m not going to lie it felt good to get compliments. People wanted to know how I’d lost the weight. I realized just now after picking up those three shirts that that was how. I come out to this garage, put a hoop around my body and move and move and move. I find tunes that make me move and I move it. I rock it sometimes. I rock it most times. Hell, really, I rock it every time. I freakin rock. And I’m straddling the thin line on whether I’m talking with arrogance or confidence. I don’t care what you call it, but it’s working in my life. I am happier and healthier than I have been in long while. Not only do I thank hooping, but my friends, my family, and every single event on that long list of things that I remember. Without one of those things, I could be someone else. Maybe instead of a hula hoop business, maybe I could have been a rocket scientist. Who knows?
What do you think? Where would you be?
