I'm feeling kind of lucky
I'm going through a bit of a tough time at the moment but even with that, I feel lucky because I have an activity that I can do where everything just feels right. For some people it's meditation, others enjoy entertaining or socializing. For me, it's riding. I can go out for a few hours by myself and just ride. As the road flows under me and the trees, mountains and rivers just pass me by, I really do feel like I'm whole again. My mind can process what it needs and I feel much better.
What is your calming activity?
The winter is almost over
It's been a relatively short winter here. The end of February and we're already experiencing the start of Spring. I've managed to have a great winter on the bike. Don't plenty of kilometers and hope to keep that going throughout the year. I'm struggling to come up with some meaningful goals for this year. Last year was fantastic, so it's going to be hard to top.
I often think about how much and how quickly my children are growing and changing. Most of the time it's quite a nostalgic trip, not often than much of a happy time as you realize that you are indeed getting older and your time with your children is certainly finite.
However I had the best Father moment just 2 nights ago. It was my youngest sons' birthday and we had bought him a present that needed building. I began building it as I normally would, but then my older son jumped in and was helping me. It was such a great feeling to be building something with my son, rather than just building something for my son. Very proud Father moment.
