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.
