Picked up mountain bike yesterday for $25.00. Quite a bargain for what I got. There is rust that needs tending to and I also need to ride it a lot more before I can say for sure just how well it performs, but none the less I am really gladdened to have a bicycle once more.
Having a bicycle means that when I am out and about – that between point A and point B – I am more focused on where I am actually traveling whilst traveling – especially when on a path and traffic is about. Because of this, I feel less anxious about others focusing on me.
The others aspect to having a bicycle is that I feel more at ease “hanging” about the place in my hammock, as having the bicycle propped up against a tree whilst having a lay in the hammock looks less permanent and more touristy. Perhaps I may be wrong – however that is how I feel and will now hang about more in the open.
I can also now take photos from the side of the road, where pulling over in my car seemed more of a menace that someone just pulled over with a bicycle. It also feels as if I can make short day trips easily as well – without worrying too much about the walking here and there – yet I will still get exercise.
S0 – I remain hopeful that no too much needs doing with this bike and if so, that it will not be much. Today I hope to get a little more done in the garden – start making up the shape of the beds. I also hope to take the bike for a test run with a small pack and take a snap of that.
I got some extra and more powerful batteries for my compact to keep me going for hours and hours – all in all – yesterday turned out to be AOK.
Now I go do another POEM to counter the BS Faith advice that tends to lead others towards looking outside themselves. Search for “How faith can help you with anxiety” – I can see how focusing more on healing is more beneficial than always focusing on the pain – but this kind of preaching I can’t stand. They only have 3 posts, which makes me think it’s purpose is more a trigger and reactionary response to my own tellings – so it is that I find what section of the forum it lays and make and or continue on my own quest to paint the truth regarding such oppressive and brainwashing crap.
Have a good day all. 🙂
