Stay Positive…

Thank you random stranger for the reminder….

I went for a bike ride today. I took a new route and ended up going farther than I had planned. After conquering several challenging hills I decided to stop at a gas station to buy a Gatorade. As I stood outside filling my water bottle a man walked by and said, “Nice day for a ride.”
I responded, “Yes, if it weren’t for the headwinds.”
He quickly replied, “It’s February!”

I immediately realized he was right. Why in the world was I complaining about some headwinds? The reality was, I was out riding on February 20. Layering was not required, only shorts and a t-shirt. It was a perfect spring day…in February!

Thank you random stranger for the reminder to see the positive!

    Ha ha! Yup! I was just glad to be out in a light jacket yesterday at 60F.
    Have I been missing your posts? I feel like it’s been awhile since I read a post from you. 😢

    You described my ride yesterday perfectly. I was going all out into the headwind for an hour, not having much fun, until I had the reality check myself … I was outdoors in February on my bike. It was a privilege to be having that experience.

    The rest of my ride was with a smile on my face 🙂

    No biking for me yet so I’m a bit envious. But we did hit the low 40’s yesterday so that was cool. Or, warm…it’s all perspective. Lol.

    Good for you! I try to take advantage of the occasional unseasonable weather, too. I’m glad we have a some mild days, it really helps the winter to pass more quickly.
