When I was a young girl, Yes, I was young once.
In order to get anywhere fast was by bicycle. This way of travel like i said was the fastest, and the funnest. (If that is a word) I was free, the wind in my hair and not a care in the world. Something special about bike riding.
This past weekend one of my childhood friends. Well, ok my BFF since I was 12 years old. (Yes, that's a long time. We are not talking about that) Decided to rent bicycles and ride for a few hours. I hadn't ridden bikes in FOREVER!! Yes, it really does come right back to you.
I thought it would be a fun ride and easy peasy bla bla bla fun fun fun.
NOT!! I WORKED at times. Peddling fast or steady or really working my legs trying not to stand up to push through the pain of this ginormous hill. (It seemed really big at the time) It was hot and I was a bit miserable. But, I kept pushing. We rode for two hours. straight. 4 breaks maybe. 13ish miles.
WHAT THE HELL WAS I THINKING???!!!!
I was tired I am not going to lie. It was hard but, yes I did have fun hanging with my girl. Cherish my girl time fo sure!!
Here's the thing, riding on the straight a ways got me thinking because that is the only time I could really think without having to struggle with a ginormous hill..... This bike ride is like my life I thought......
Hum how bout that?
At times I was slow and steady like the flat part or straight a ways.
Sometimes I was pushing, working, feeling my legs BURN on the way up the big ginormous hills (I know but, they felt like really big hills)
Then the best part, coasting down the hills this is when the stars are aligned and you are letting your Soul be free and do the thinking. All the hard work from going up the ginormous hills paid off. You are coasting. Easy peasy. It's a cycle. A flow of energy, easy at times and hard most others.
You just have to remember the hard times won't last and when you embrace the good with the bad and just flow through it... Life will be much easier. Let the Universe guide you. Be quiet and listen to what it has to say.
Life is a cycle just like a bike ride. You will work to stay afloat and then you think there isn't an end in sight. Next thing you know you are coasting down hill into a steady ride on flat ground. Staying steady.
Always remember this to shall pass. Take a deep breathe and just flow.
Have a great Hump day Peeps!!
