A bit of a rambled thought while on a rambling ride.
Over the weekend, while riding in the sun with a really good friend, I had some pleasant thoughts about my current situation in life.
Focusing, but for a spec of time, on my own life. Reflecting on what has lead me up to this point in my life.
Right now: I really like my job. I like the people I work with on a daily basis. I like creating the content for it. I like that it is a set of tools to help people get outside and do the very same things I love to do. I like that I do something that matters to me and many people around the world. I like that it affords me the resources to go on these adventures with my love.
This job continually re-ignites my passion for the outdoors, riding bicycles, exploring the world around me, and sharing these experiences.
Generally I really hate talking about work in my blog. Talking about work with others normally feels like complaining, unwinding, relieving stress. But when I talk about my work with another cyclist, I get excited. I get amped up to share a part of my life that I find fulfilling. I want the listener amped about about finding their own adventures. I like sharing these experiences.
There are many other factors going on in my life that make me feel like I’m on a new high point in overall happiness. Although I get down on myself for the things I can’t do, I reflect on what I’m currently doing to bring that happiness back into my field of view.
The last couple of years have been going really well for me on so many levels that I needed to take a moment to give some gratitude for all that’s happened.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
