Best Things In Life Make Us Sweat. {Poem}

The anticipation of a lover’s lips on our body,

A hard workout we thought we’d never get through,

The adrenaline coursing through our veins as we anticipate something exciting about to come,

Chasing our children around the yard on a warm sunny day,

A hot spicy dish that tantalizes our tongues,

Sipping hot cocoa while bundled under layers of warm clothes on the ski slopes,

White water rafting in the heat and humidity of the Amazon river,

Exhaustion as we help a friend move into a new home,

Hard labor as we birth a child or hold our partner’s hand as we watch her bring life into the world,

Dancing up a storm in our kitchens,

Holding downward dog in a Bikram Yoga class,

That 5th shot of tequila by the pool in Cabo,

The news that we got a promotion,

Raging in the mosh pit at a concert with a bunch of friends,

Beach volleyball on a hot sunny day,

Racing towards the finish line as we complete our first marathon,

Seeing your crush’s number show up on your phone,

A long, passionate love-making session… one you still think about till this day.

Because the best things in life make us sweat.
