I have for 10 years meticulously saved money to secure the future of my family. Now I feel too much time has passed me by. I am going to try and live a little. Like some of you have said, I will be at my best if and when I find my passion(s). The rest is luck and serendipity.
I don't know about you. But I was devastated by my divorce. My entire life was blown apart. Everything I had thought I stood for was gone. I felt as though I had fallen into an abyss and I was flailing in every direction. Trying desperately to find something, anything to grab ahold of. Sometimes I found something, a new friend or a new hobby. But I always felt the handhold give and the plunge continued. That continued for over a year.
Now, almost three years removed from my divorce, I never imagined that I would get back to a point in my life that I would look forward to opening my eyes in the morning in anticipation of the new day. But I have. I realize every day is a new adventure. A new opportunity to learn, to grow, to have fun, to be better.
I still have moments. But now I realize that I have a lot to offer anyone who wants to join me, even if just for part of my journey. And I have new attitude, that if you aren't interested, no hard feelings. It will be their loss, not mine. I am going to travel to wherever I am going with or without them. I intend to make my trip as enjoyable as possible. I will be sorry they can't or won't be joining me, but I won't be devastated any more.
PS - stop thinking about getting a bike and just get one. If you find it isn't for you. You can always get rid of it. OTOH you might find a new passion. I started riding about two years ago. I had to convince myself to invest in me for a change. Now I am planning a week or two trip to the upper great plains this summer. Just me and my bike.
