We are all on a journey as we pedal though this adventurous land that we call life. Often times you can be pedaling along thinking everything is going great only to realize you’ve actually been partaking in a circus, and you…yes, you are the main attraction. It may feel like the crowds are laughing at you when the spotlights are turned on, but the truth is, they are laughing with you as they too have been where you are.
There are other times you may find yourself quickly pedaling in an attempt to get away, but in reality you are getting nowhere. While the pedaling may help in some ways during these times, it is not able to help you get from point “A” to point “B”. No matter the speed at which you pedal or the direction you try to go, you may be stuck and unable to move at all. Even though you have become numb to your surroundings, you must keep pedaling. Do not stop.
Yes, everyone’s journey is filled with “ups and downs” as you ride though this adventurous land we call life. Whether at the top of the mountain or in the valley, it can be difficult. The same is true as you go up one side of a mountain, or pedal down to the valley on the other side.
No matter how small or big, no matter how you feel, just keep pedaling. Conquer one pedal stroke at a time, declare victory, pedal again, repeat.
