A light bulb moment on the hill




I was out on my bike around 11:30 this morning. It was cold and there were a few raindrops and it was windy. (grrrr) And since I was all suited up, I kept riding anyway. I ride because I love it, but also because I can. My knee is feeling better, my work allows me this privilege and one day I'm going to be able to keep up with my husband.

I came upon a hill I usually grimace on. And then I had that "light bulb" moment. Attack on the hills, is what they call it. The best cyclists in the Tour, the Giro or the Vuelta attack on the hills. Not when it's easy, but when it's the hardest. It's what the best train for.


It's really so simple and powerful at the same time. In life and in business you work the hardest when it IS the hardest. You do everything you can the best way you know how and then you give it over to the Universe. I can't explain in detail,it might dilute the concept, but when you know it, stuff just falls into place.

I've been spending too much time alone, over analyzing, fretting about a number of things. My head is much clearer now. So, a heartfelt thanks to some of my real and cyber friends, Rebecca, Katie, John, Noelle, Rach, Adam , Cat and my lovely husband who rides like the wind, and has the uncanny knack of changing the subject in just the right way at just the right time.

I'm sitting here thinking about your post and can't think of much to add that you didn't already say. So true, about those light bulb moments! Enjoy the ride~

I appreciate your post today Sherry! I've been fretting alot lately, mostly about my business. It seems like sales are harder to come by these days and then self doubt creeps in. In reality, I think I'm overanalyzing which bogs down my movtivation and creativity. Thanks for the reminder that maybe I should just let go a little.

It's kind of like, change your thoughts, change your life. We all seem to have to work harder for everything right now...every little bit of advice is appreciated.

I feel like I have spent all summer analyzying my life. I gave up my job in May as I wanted to spend more time at home and be a mum. Our move to Australia is always on my mind. We can't sell our house and now the exchange rate is dropping. Hopefully it all will soon drop into place for us. I enjoyed reading your post.

Enjoyed your post Sherry! I had to work hard this summer and now that the pace has slowed I can hardly create. But, I think it will pass once I feel replenished. I am just allowing it to be such and look forward to a new burst of creativity.

It really is true that we have to work harder when the road seems all up-hill, but it all works out in the end... Inertia. ♥

If one must go up a hill, one will then find the other side and come back down again...

I know you're going to come out on top Sherry!!

Lots of Love.

Yes- your best and then release it to the universe trusting the best outcome for everyone- it really is about the process and you cannot lose (? not the right word here, but you know what I mean) if that is your focus- sometimes hard to keep this in mind in the heat of the work- but I am totally with you on this... still gotta get me that bike though....

I need to remember this, because lately, I've just been wanting to give up when it's hard. I didn't use to be that way.
