  • I have just been on an off-road motor bike training course. I loved every moment of it and really learnt a lot! But here is the thing:

    Every task looked more daunting and impossible than the previous one. I discovered something this weekend - an epitome... made me think very hard about life in general. And how I LIVE it.

    If we did as the instructor told and trusted our bikes, somehow a daunting impossibility became a reality. Often we look at life and know some things are just too much to cope with, cannot handle this or overcome that. Sometimes, the task or situation LOOKS more daunting than it really is.

    We must trust our instincts and JUST DO IT!! Things are often not accomplished or achieved because we don't believe in ourselves. Tackle the bull by the horns and we might just discover that it is easier than we thought.

    Here I posted pics of me on the bike - can you see I am having fun? I (gently) put it down only a few times! Hiehie!

    I was minding my own business when someone called me a retard … I almost choked on my shoelace!
