This Under Armour for Women video is mesmerizing. Olympian Lindsey Vonn tears it up – insane! – and at first I thought her athleticism was the reason why I felt I could watch this all day long, hitting repeat again and again as if I were hypnotized. But then the light bulb switched on: Lindsey’s cool, yes, but it’s the REFRAIN that resonates with me so deeply. It’s a mantra – I WILL, I WILL protect this house – and it’s clear and genius.
So what is this prayer, this order? For me, it’s a directive, a powerful reminder, to respect and protect one’s core, mind and body. The way I hear it, “this house” is my;
strength, happiness, enthusiasm, courage, athleticism, endurance, heart, gumption, courage, femininity, will, exuberance, power, voice, fun, life force, fuel, wisdom, desire, drive, joy, biology, heart, optimism, love, magic… and on. Wow. We can all forget to protect this space as we rush through our lives. Take a moment and think about it. Take a moment to appreciate the wealth inside you. Take a moment to protect your house.
