Knowing what is around you, the feel of the wind, the coolness of rain in the summertime when it hits your skin. The trail ahead, knowing all that lays in front of you that makes up your journey.
Be it life or whatever you’re doing at that moment, know you are absorbing the vibe that is around you. If you surround yourself with negatives, you become negative. I know this to be true firsthand. I had to push away my negatives — whether it was a person, place, or thing. I had to push it away ’cause I knew I was going nowhere with them or it. I knew that if I went farther into it I would have become worse then they were and succumbed to their beliefs.
I knew my surroundings had to change, and so I changed them. I knew that if I wanted to do what I need to do in this life, I needed to keep the positives. The One showed me this. Now I can enjoy every day as if it were my last, knowing I put down all things that made my surroundings like a black cloudy day, full of rain and darkness. I knew I had to get away from the darkness when I finally saw the light.
My riding got better ’cause I was straight for once. I could actually smell all that was around me and hear what I needed to hear, like the wind blowing and the trees shaking and cracking and all things nature.
I had this whole idea about the title of this post, but for some reason this just dropped into my head so I’ll tell you: I spent 28 years of growing up too quick. I never had a chance to chase my dreams. I mean I had the chance, but they were never going to happen because of my surroundings. Now it’s 28 years later, I’m single (kinda) and ready to live now — not just for me but for all of you.
I want to know some of your stories in the woods or on the road — anywhere you might have been. Tell me in the comments. And some of you wanna know about The One — I’ll let ya know just not right now. I have a story for The One.
Anyway, know and truly feel your surroundings, give positive energy, and be good to each other. And RAMFB.
