Adjective — Capable of being or becoming.
Overheard from a coach coworker (probably not about me): “She has potential as a runner, but she might have to slim down and tone up her frame in order to actualize it.”
Watched in the bathroom mirror: My ass round out behind my body as I checked that my shirt was smooth and the cup was containing the MenstroMonster.
Felt, every time I walk and run: My inner thighs rub together. Even on a non-active day, Body Glide is my friend. When wearing a skirt, it is my best friend.
Lived, today during my run: When needing to cross a trafficky intersection, my ass and thighs open up effortlessly to power me stronger and faster, then collect (to use an equestrian term) right back under myself for control.
In these round hips and thick thighs: There is potential there. Right now.
