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!!!!!
