As I write this, the weather outside is blustery and rainy. Today’s ride was a “trainer in the garage” work out. There have been quite a few of these days in the last month or so. It is tempting to blame my lack of fitness on the weather, but if I am honest with myself, I recognize that the only way out of California’s drought is through this wet winter. This is a huge “silver lining” to the current temporary rain cloud of fitness deficiency.
With every situation we find ourselves in, each of us makes the choice how to process and hold it. Good or bad? With animosity, or with an open, non-judgemental mind? Adversity or opportunity? You have the power to decide and to thus make it so.
Welcome to 2017 and new opportunities to be useful, motivated, and the best you can be. Get out there and ride, run, swim, or do whatever ignites your passion.
