Little Moments on the Bike

Practice Gratitude ...it will change your life.

Practice Gratitude ...it will change your life.

Yesterday, I got on my bike for the first time in over a month. The first few cranks of the pedal was euphoria… an indescribable mash of feelings: happiness, comfort, familiarity, freedom and peace. I felt like a child who suddenly rode on two wheels for the first time by herself— so wild and free. That evening, I rode home as the last bit of sun was disappearing into the night. As I got to the top of a hill, I looked down into the distance and saw an exquisite sea of bright white blinking lights. CYCLISTS! All riding towards me… wherever they maybe going. The bike route sure was busy. I was elated, seeing all those souls braving the frigid and dark skies with me as the season inches closer and closer to a below freezing winter. Then, this morning as I stepped outside with my bike, the crisp cold air instantly enveloped my body, chilling me to the bones yet like a breath of fresh air into my soul. I was suddenly alert. Reawakened. And I simply thought, “oh wow, this feels nice!

It’s hard to be unhappy when the littlest things can put a smile on your face. When you practice gratitude, you will always notice all the small, albeit wonderful things happening around you.

My background is in tech but now I am an expert on productivity-hacking, motivation, accountability, coaching, nutrition, and living a happy yet disciplined and committed lifestyle— and I’ve been doing so “effortlessly” for well over 10 years.

After years of studying and applying this skill we call DISCIPLINE, I’ve learned how important it is to be consistent to inspire others through implementing and cultivating good habits.

This is my journal and honestly I write but I rarely proofread. I don’t have time, and I gave up perfection a long time ago. I have been practicing this art of putting my thoughts on paper (or the web) since my mom gave me my first diary when I learned how to write. Just like my life, this journal is not perfect.
