facing my fears – part one

Have i ever started off a blog with a quote?  well i am now.  i read this the other day and it really spoke to me…

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear – Mark Twain

So…you are all very well aware of my fears – since i have blogged about them recently 🙂

what does someone do when they have such an intense, real, panicky fear of getting on a bike???

well if you are the bee….you buy a bike.

Please meet the bike that is still nameless.  i am still working on her name: (i am open to suggestions)

she is nothing special…not expensive or overly fancy.  she is simple and yet beautiful…just like moi
lol

what inspired this?  honestly….this blog.

i realized how very afraid i was of getting on a bike, that i thought the only logical thing to do was face my fear head on.
i got sad thinking of all the things i could potentially be missing out on…and so i made the decision that it had to stop.

so it starts with the bike.  once i have let go of the extreme fear of the bike…maybe the running will come next?
who knows…and really…who cares! the point is I HAVE A BIKE!!!!!!

weather permitting i will be spending alot of time with her this weekend 🙂

i even bought a helmet.  i almost peed myself from laughing so hard, but lets face it…i look good in anything
LOL

i was talking to some people who were telling me that no, helmets are not law for adults, but i do require a bell or a horn…even for the trails.
how is an average non biker chick like me supposed to know these things???  i guess i will have to google my city and it’s bike laws to get the 411.

wish me luck.  if it all works in my favour i will fill you in on my first real bike ride.

maybe one day soon i will have a “part two” of facing my fears…maybe 🙂

yay me!!!!!

how time flies

today marks the one year anniversary of losing my resident cat, Mamma.

it doesn’t feel like a year.  not at all.

it feels like this just happened.  she’s been gone a year…and i miss her still so very much.

sometimes i swear i hear her or feel her close by.

Mamma was with me for 16 years…she lived a good life, but it’s just never long enough.

she was crazy, unpredictable, affectionately called “evil”, most people were scared to be around her…but she loved me to death.

i’m just thinking about my girl today and sending her all the love in my heart.

i love you Mamma
