Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

Things I learned while riding my bike


On this Memorial Day weekend, as part of my new focus on fitness I took the bike out for an hour and a half ride over the back roads nearby.  I wasn’t out to find anything particular; just to see what I might see and enjoy the morning.  Here’s what I learned:

  • That it’s hard to see the potholes when you’re tearing down a hill wearing sunglasses.
  • That for every long uphill you can hope for an equidistant downhill.
  • That if you continue forward, even when you don’t know where you are, you’ll find your way.
  • That these bits of wisdom apply to more than an adventure on a bicycle.

You think?

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. Aren’t you insightful?

    I took a bike ride last weekend and all I could think was how much I needed to get a seat with better padding! Lol

    Guess I need to get back out and peddle again. Clearly I missed out!


  2. Sara, you crack me up! Just cause I didn’t write about the darn seat doesn’t mean that didn’t ALSO played on my mind! LOL


  3. Both of you are too funny!!!! Glad to hear you are getting out there and running and riding and thinking! I’m sure it was fun!


  4. Life has lots of lessons like that – how neat that your bike ride gave us these things to ponder.l
