MY BIG PUSH OFF

IMG_7363

This morning I set my priority to practice my cycling.  From a class last week I had learned that it is in the push off.  Push and glide.  Push and glide.  The momentum keeps me upright.  I don’t fall.  I push off, glide and rise to sit on the seat.  I do not have to do all three all at once.  I can not.  That is why I fall.  I have time.  It is amazing what directions and a few pointers can do for you.

I have time.  In the same fashion, I am learning to stop and get off a bike without crashing and falling to the ground like I usually do if I don’t have a curb handy.  I have time to brake, stop, and get off the bike.  I don’t have to do all three at the same time.  I cannot do it all at once.  That is why I crash and fall.  How amazing is that?

I have time.  This is my big life lesson from riding a bicycle.  I am doing my big push off in a different direction.  The momentum will keep me upright.  I have time.  I can glide.  There is no rush.  I can do one thing at a time.  I do not have to charge forward blindly, angrily, or in fear.  I will not fall.  I have support.  I am in good company.

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.

    Glad you liked “bird watching” and “executive privilege,” Lily. Thank you. And glad you are good at riding that bicycle. Thanks for sharing the pictures of you on the bike. It’s good exercise. I ride one that is stationary in my house, but gives me needed exercise for my diseases.
