On sweat

"Nobody ever drowned in his own sweat."
Ann Landers

I've often heard that sweating is a sign of good health. I'm about as unqualified as anyone I know to either validate or invalidate this, but I'm inclined to agree with the late, great Ms. Landers. There's something soul-stirring about literally and figuratively flooring it in the course of everyday life. Afterward, when you're all spent from the effort, it's quite the experience to look back and reflect on what you've accomplished. It just feels right.

It's a little thing. Or maybe it isn't.

Your turn: What does really hard work look - or feel - like, to you?

I like hard work and it makes me feel good...but my experience has been that I really need to pace myself or I will make enough errors that I have start all over again! (My word verification is gralimbo...!?)

When I accomplish something I get a sense of peace... Calm seems to come over me and everything is quiet....
