This week on the blog is dedicated to living life. While I am not in the physical condition I want to be in, I am constantly reminded that there is more to life than riding and taking pictures. For me, those are certainly big parts of my life but they paint a very incomplete picture. My life is overflowing with blessings of family, friends, gifts, talents, opportunties and joy. I am human and I often overlook those things, but recently I have been doing a better job recognizing them. I am taking some time to slow down and taking moments to celebrate those important things. These past two weeks have been filled with life, so much so that I want to share them this week.
I start this week off with off with a dedication to my friend Eric at Adventure Monkey. He’s recently gone through heart surgery and in a recent text exchange with him, he reminded me that I should not take things for granted. His last line read “You better be taking care of yourself”. Eric, I am. Things are coming a bit more into balance and my mental health has improved so much. I am also getting some, and dare I say it, consistent riding time. Thank you Eric for the reminder and the inspiration. I can’t wait to share gravel road, pavement or trail with you again.
