When faced with something that isn’t easy I feel like you have two choices:
B. Try harder.
Guess which one I always choose? I suppose there could be a third choice of never choosing something hard to begin with, but what’s the fun in that?
And so I will find a way to get stronger and improve my bike workouts. I will figure out how to sit with each of my kids when they eat dinner on those nights when we can’t all eat together. I will continue to reach out to friends even when they don’t take the time to reciprocate. I will focus on the things that are important and not get bogged down in immature games. And I’ll do my best to not complain about it. Because if you’re whining or complaining or feeling sorry for yourself… you’re not trying your hardest.
Now you’ll have to excuse me, I need to go for a bike ride.
