RUN & RIDerful Wednesday

It's important to take stock in life's everyday blessings. Sometimes I have so much going on that focusing on the small things make me smile, as well as force me to live in the moment and not take things for granted. My goal is to set aside one day a week to discuss a favorite quote that currently resonates with me when it comes to running, BMX, or just life in general.

This week's thoughts include:

PATIENCE


Patience is a virtue that I never quite had growing up. I was always impatient, weather that was to learn a new skill, save money, or get the heck out of my not so fun high school. Through the years, and probably beginning with BMX, I have had to embrace patience. If I wanted to become great at a particular skill like gates or turns, I realized that consistent practice and patience was key. Once I finally got the hang of incorporating a little patience into my life I began to really like it. 

The passion and strength I hold for my favorite hobbies and other areas in my life are awesome, but they only truly last with patience and time. Recently I've been off my bike for what feels like forever, and that has to do with almost constant rain in my area. I was recently asked by someone if I still rode, and of course the answer is yes 😊. However, I am strong and patient enough not to feel like I need to talk about doing something all the time. If I decide to, that's great, but I am secure and patient enough in my love for what I do that I take pride in not feeling like I need to talk myself up when I fall off the grid for a little while. 

Recently having patience has been a challenge. Dealing with waiting for my local tracks to dry up on a consistent basis and dealing with the travel challenges that come with a long distance relationship have me impatiently hoping for a change, but I also know that now is a good time to accomplish so many positive things, and I just have to be.....I'll say it! Patient. 😎😄
