I’ve come to realize that the best things in life make you sweat. Deep breathing. Heart beating. Sweat dripping. Food. Sex. (and love). Fitness. All things that make your heart skip a beat, to remind you that yes, you are alive, and human, mistakes included. For me, much of this reminder has come thru love lessons, to remind me of life lessons … no mistakes, just lessons, thru the men I’ve sweat with - in food, fitness + otherwise. Some made me laugh. Some made me cry. Below is a manifesto of sorts. All in good fun, in the end - each has taught me more about myself. Peeling my layers, as i learn about others. But a leopard never changes its spots. We are who we are. Short stories below. Names have been changed, Grudges have been dropped, And i am more than aware that there are 3 sides to every story - mine, his + the truth. Take a peek.
