I’ve taken up bike riding after a sixteen-year hiatus. I’m over the moon excited that I can once again get on a bike and ride. Slow and steady is my pace. I do not want to hurt old hurts or injure something new.
It is a gift I am giving myself at this time in my life. I even found a vintage bike on FB Marketplace with higher (than the now normal heigh) handlebars. I've already put on three miles this week, one mile at a time! I will gladly take these small wins. I used to LOVE to ride! To think I would have missed this evening sky if I didn’t get in my mile tonight. I'm also quite impressed with the photo, especially since I snapped it so quickly on the side of the road with my iPhone. Here’s to giving ourselves exactly what we need to nurture, heal, and grow. Are you setting any self-care intentions this summer? I'd love to hear in the comments below.
