I get a massage every Monday. It is my special treat to myself to help me take care of me, to relax, to honor my body and to thank my muscles for what they do for me. Today my appointment was at 12:45.
Right before it was time to leave, due to a variety of factors, I did not have a car to get to my appointment. While normally it would not be a big deal to jump on my scooter and scoot over — today it was raining and cold today.
I really wanted to go to my appointment — so I bundled up and got out in the rain and scooted towards 1st Ave. It was wet and cold and I wanted to get there fast — and I found myself going between 45 – 50 mph. At first I was really irritated that I had to ride my scooter and be wet and cold. And then it hit me….
There I was riding my scooter — in the rain, in the cold, driving fast and only a few short months ago I was just hoping to ride the scooter one tiny, tiny mile in the beautiful weather to the beach. I have come a long way. It was a moment of pure joy. The joy came from realizing that I had faced a fear back in August that now seems so trivial….from realizing that whatever scares me can be overcome…from realizing that once I recognized that I had confidence, I never even gave it a second doubt.
In 2013, I am ready to push the boundaries of my comfort zone. I am ready to try things in a new way. I am ready to continue to amaze myself. That is where life begins.
I am ready to master the art of racing in the rain.
