Where else in your daily life do you hear the word "fit?" Besides the use of the word in fitness, where?
I was driving down the road, and happen to see an obese woman chase after a 3 year old who was running away from her on a playground. She couldn't catch up. What I thought was how dangerous this was. The inability to be able to watch your child, or niece, or grandchild because of her lack of ability to run faster than a 3 year old...
It hit me! That woman was UNFIT to be watching this child. How dangerous, and what a use of the word "fit!" Honestly, I think it's a better use of the word. I would rather be "fit" enough to take care of my child, than be "fit." Whenever someone asks me "how long does it take to be fit?" I ask, fit for what? What is your task you want to achieve?
I hope the woman eventually asked for help, or else the kid is still running...
Self reliance. Make sure you can!
