Tonight, I’m tired. Me and the Trek Valencia that I purchased last year took a roughly 20mi ride. I rode just before and slightly towards the evening rush. And my body hurts right now. I did 30mi yesterday, and so today’s ride was to be a cool down. And it was, but it hurts.
But, that’s just it. It hurts, and I’m tired. I’ve somehow gotten out of the funk that I’d been in for weeks and found some solace on a bike and with the hope that something will be coming better (soon?).
I’ve gotten some needed focus and clarity concerning where MMM is going. Suffice to say, its going to be a major push, but its what’s been given and so I’m going.
I’ve gotten little clarity about much else, and so I’m standing pat (though I want a convertible kind of badly – just no car payment).
But, even in all of this, I’m not doting. I’m not sitting around waiting for things to happen. I’m ready – renewed kind of ready – to push forward and see what happens. And you know, I kind of don’t even care where things land. I just know that I’m on a heck of a ride.
To that end, I’m planning all kinds of trips for the coming months. Vacations, personal, and professional. I’m taking advantage of my bed more often by sleeping better. And Lord willing, Taco Bell might take me into eating a good deal less meat (yea, I know about the preservatives and sodium, I’ll get there).
Its just a matter of a bro moving forward. Yea, life isn’t what I’d like. I’m reminded too often of things that I want which just aren’t mine right now. But, I’ve got a present to continue to unwrap. And maybe, just maybe, I won’t get tired tonight before getting to the gift at the bottom of the box.
Maybe the gift is just knowing that today was made for me to not twiddle away 😉
