Three Life Lessons I Learned from Riding a Bicycle

February 17, 2016

In my 20 years of existence, I can say ( I'm not proud of it ) that I didn't learn much about being physically active. I've tried various activities like swimming, taekwondo, and marksmanship, but I guess, physical activities are not my forte. I can learn a few moves and forget it after several days or weeks. In other words, physical activities don't have a great impact on my life and the way I live it. 
However, as I grow older, I also learned that life is more than just sleeping and rolling in bed. Reality strikes me so hard that it convinced me to go out of the box and try different activities or skills that I should have already learned by now.
To start a the journey of being "active", I grabbed the opportunity when my boyfriend asked me if I want to learn cycling. I didn't expect that scenario, mainly because were not in good terms that time. Luckily, he's gentleman and patient enough to teach me. 
After two or three hours of trying my best to balance and work with maneuvering the bicycle, I learned! But, aside from that, there are three more lessons I learned from riding a bicycle that I can relate to love and life.

  • The journey of life isn't always smooth.

Riding a bicycle taught me that the road of life isn't as smooth as I want it to be. There are numerous bumps, humps, and cracks that will hinder or block the way. In order to be successful, I have to find a way or two to reach the destination I desire. 

  • It's never too late to learn something new.

Life is a continuous process of learning. Those who are afraid to be a newbie or amateur are the ones who don't value the gift of being successful. On the other hand, the ones who opt to learn more will move closer to their dreams or goals.

  • The first few steps toward success can be daunting, but it will be worth it.

Starting from the bottom is undoubtedly difficult. And it is also the most exciting part of life. No matter how challenging it is to start from the beginning, it is all worth it when success starts to peak in.
