I’m writing this a day after since yesterday I was too tired to sit down in front of a screen and in fact I didn’t want to it, sometimes it’s good to be off any screen as long as possible.
Yesterday I went for a motorbike gathering with a friend from another group. The night before we were debating whether to attend the gathering or not, mainly because on Saturday the police went up to the mountain to stop bikers. There’s nothing wrong with that and in a way, though annoying, many bikers are not careful when riding off-road. I don’t a problem in going fast (although I shouldn’t by law) as far as you have a good vision of the road but if it’s a very windy trail, you just can’t for the sake of hikers, dogs, bicycle riders safety.
However, in the end we decided to go for one purpose only to meet new people who share the same passion and as I foresaw the day was great and we both made new friends and had a great day.
What filled me with enthusiasm today?
I could say a thousands things about Sunday’s but if there is one thing that I must highlight it has to be meeting up with plenty of people who share your passion for ADV motorbikes. Sitting down with them, eating something and sharing stories and even personal life events.
What drained me of energy today?
Haha oh please, don’t even ask, ok next….
What did I learn about myself today?
I learnt that over the course of a year I’ve changed a lot from a personal point of view. After listening to many personal grow podcast episodes as well as reading many books on the same topic I have indeed grown and I’ve become wiser.
I have learnt to accept fear, risk and live life as it was the last day of my life. I’ve also learnt that by failing and trying something out you can learn more than paying tons of money for a course. Just do it! (Where have I read that before?)
Sadly I must confess that yesterday I broke my rule of no beer for a month. I didn’t feel happy but I drank because I was socialising with other bikers. Sure, I felt bad but I accepted my failure in accomplish a goal. I must be tougher next time. Still there was a positive trade-off I beer for 5 more friends, I think that’s not bad and in any case quite positive.
On the other hand, over the last three days (Friday to Sunday) I ate many crisps and I must say that what researchers have claimed is true, “deep-fried food” is bad, unhealthy and dangerous. I’ll try to keep away from those as much as possible.
