When we're kids, we can do anything and everything. All kids are artists. It's only as we get older that some people take themselves out of the artist box. Mainly because at some point it was decided that they weren't good or talented enough to remain in the group of artists. The same thing happens with fitness and athletics.

All kids are athletes. They run around and play tag, ride their bikes, jump rope and do things that if an adult did them would qualify as exercise. When we're kids, it's just play, but at some point it becomes competitive and only the skilled kids continue on. We have to overcome those thoughts and categories as adults and realize that we are all capable of being athletes.

All we have to do is go out there and do it. Lace up your shoes and go for a run. Grab a football and go throw it around with some friends. Buy a jump rope and take that for a spin. You can be an athlete again, you just have to believe that it's possible.
