They say it’s like learning how to ride a bike all over again.
There are many things in life that we have to keep re-learning.
In my case, it’s been five years since I left corporate life.
In a week I’ll be back where I belong.
Nothing like getting back in the professional game!
I must admit, I missed the high of working full time.
I crave the professional interaction, the wheeling and the dealing.
It’s what I know how to do best and what I’ve always done in my career.
The girls are all grown up and Dad can no longer travel.
It’s about time I take care of my own needs.
The dynamic is similar yet very different when it comes to matters of the heart.
It’s easy to get back on a bike and start pedalling.
However, I must admit, it’s scarier for me than getting back to work.
It’s not just hopping back up on a bicycle, the challenge is maintaining balance.
Falling down will surely happen many times.
One simply gets up and starts pedalling again.
It’s the difficult and hard falls that make me nervous.
The kind of fall that can bruise deeply, I guess it’s called natural fear.
Fear because I’ve been out of my game for a really long time.
I tend to overthink and over feel each and every process.
They all say, just let go and ride your bike freely.
It takes a lot of courage to put oneself out there at midlife.
I’ve gotten used to keeping to myself in my solitary hole.
It was safe and uncomplicated.
Then again, who wants to live a solitary life.
Bicycle rides are exhilarating and energising!
I have to learn how to let it all go and let it be.
Trust is key in letting go.
If not now, when?
I guess it’s now or never.
