I came across the above quote today and thought it was pretty apt. Life really is like riding a bicycle in terms of the need for movement and wind in your hair, and some effort on your part to fulfil it's purposes. Otherwise, as a friend said to me the other day, you're just heading towards entropy and a whole lot of getting nothing done when you have all the time in the world to do things and no desire or reason to do them.
I've definitely been feeling this way lately, as deadlines sneak up on me, the semester of school is coming to an end and work is beginning to be more plentiful (more on this later :P) At any rate, I'm having fun getting back on the proverbial bike, but I think I must have not got my 'bike legs' yet, because I'm wobbly and can't even do fancy tricks like steering one handed. Nor would it really be a good idea, with the amount of sleep I've had lately!
So as always, I'm looking for balance and not always finding it right away, and instead of beating myself up about it, I am just going to take time when I need it and do as much as I can.
For me, not taking on everything all at once and taking a break when I need to is progress, and I'm choosing to celebrate it as a success today.
