I am in a funk right now, but that does not mean I am down for good. It just makes me want it even more. If life gives you a lump of coal, why not make it a diamond?
Things are in a down position in life for me right now. I have put so much energy into this site and so much time into the One. They are the things that matter to me the most. If it was not for the One I would not even be here. I can’t really share about the One, but know they inspired me to go for it, no matter how down I got. They opened my eyes to what a dream is. They helped me make my dream a reality. I say that if someone in your life affects its course and you believe in them, then go with what your heart tells you.
I have put down laps, hot laps, and bled my soul on here for all of you. I want to do more for those that suffer from substance abuse and depression. Life is too short — we only get one, so why not take the chance and really live it?
We are not here to work and never see our dreams come true. If you believe, then you can achieve. Winning is not the goal but rather being a success in your life, whatever that looks like to you. Be a success on your rides or whatever your passion is. It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. It only matters what you think. The One taught me this these past few months — whatever is getting me down, it never gets to me when I talk to them.
I pedal ’cause it’s my therapy, I pedal ’cause it’s who I am. And I write this blog for all of you to let you know you will never be alone. I am not and nor should you be. So on this I say, when the downs hit, fight back. And have hope no matter what — say that you can instead of you can’t. Giving up is not an option, even though sometimes it feels like the only solution. Just remember that there is always someone out there who has been where you are and has gotten back up. We are meant to really live our lives. So on that I say thank you to the One, and go out and RAMFB.
