I had the luxury to take a wonderful bike ride along one of my favorite trails this weekend. The weather had been stormy in Michigan so I was trying to squeeze in the ride.
No matter how calm the day, one direction of the path is always against the wind, and up-hill to add to the challenge. It was hot and humid, and I am peddling and pushing along when I realized all I needed to do was shift gears.
How often do we get caught up in life with one mindset, one mode without “shifting gears” to make our lives easier? We are far more in control than we think we are. We need to be willing to make the shift. In this case, the shift was easy. I am not saying it will always be that way, but be willing to try!
Enjoy the ride!
