So you bought a bike...........

Yes, yes I did. And I'm so frustrated with many things, having to do with it, and others not. I can't get the comfort issue right, not enough padding, too large of a saddle (bike lingo for seat), the right handle grips, trying to get my distance and speed up, but I can't do that til I remedy the aforementioned issues. Grrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!  But it's not stopping me from riding some every week at least. I am determined to learn and grow, and get healthier doing this!

Last week was stressful, yesterday was the WORST, and all I could think about was how I NEEDED to be on my bike. I rushed to get my riding clothes on after work and shot out of the driveway, not even stopping til I had gone 2.3 miles and my hands were numb and my lungs were burning. I just NEEDED it. I stopped just before the research fields at the Clemson Research center, just after I'd gone over the creek. The magnolias, honeysuckles and something else were so fragrant. I almost hyper ventilated trying to get it all in my lungs. I have a friend who works out for his stress relief, one who runs, others who have that 1 thing that they HAVE to do to avoid losing their minds. 

And on the subject of losing one's mind.............emotions are a fickle thing. One day you can be happy, the next day sad, the next indifferent, and never understand why. And even more fickle are people!! I will no longer be the one doing all the work-emotionally that is. If you want to be in my life, make an effort and improve it somehow, otherwise -Adios, Au Revoir, arrivederci, ciao, auf Wiedersehen, sayonara, shalom, totsiens, vale, zàijiàn and Aloha! My circle will be getting much smaller, in an effort to make the most of every moment of energy and emotion I expend. 

No one will EVER look out for you like YOU!  So get with it, protect your heart and give it to those who truly deserve it!  I am!

Much love~

Rhonda
