There was a time not so long ago that I was thinking about walking away from a 16 year career. The problem was that at the time, that was all I was about; I would work and when I wasn’t working, I was answering work emails or dealing with work problems. My days off were spent in court. I was miserable. The reason that I was going to leave was that I felt there wasn’t enough time for me to get out and enjoy life……and I had a plan.
As with all the best laid plans, that one went away as the situation changed itself for the better. A year ago if you asked me if I thought it were possible to have my cake AND eat it, I would have told you that there was no possible way. I found a way though. Well, more accurately, a way presented itself to me. Part of that way was the ability to purchase my motorcycle. Now every chance I get, I’m on that bike; exploring experiencing and truly living. I love how I can feel the subtle temperature changes as I ride along. I love how everything smells better and looks bigger and grander. Part of that benefit is that now I see things that in my truck, I would have missed before. Boy if there isn’t some great stuff that I have just driven by.
My bike is as much therapy as sitting there experiencing this quiet little spot for about a half hour.
