If you want something, there are ways, if you don’t there are reasons…
It’s been three weeks now since I joined a biking club here in Kuwait and I must say, again, that it’s an oxymoron. A bitter and sweet thing; bitter because of the fear that is residing within me. Something that is preventing me from doing things that I really want to do and I want to be. Sweet because every finished course is an achievement, a conquered battle, a blessing, which I am truly grateful. Hah! That’s the drama!
Why am I saying this? Oh well, Last Friday, I arrived to our meeting place and realized that no one was there? How could that possibly be? According to a good friend, there’s no way the Friday bike session can be canceled; hence I started to wonder. Only one speculation came to my mind: they already left. I want to back out at that moment; this fear was like punching me on my face. I must admit, I am afraid to bike along the road. I am afraid of getting hit by the speeding cars and big buses. Then, I started contemplating, if I will not do it now, when? What is my reason?
Ok, before I start, I uttered John 3:16 and left the area until I reach the turning point and met the gang. I realized that there was only a change of venue on our rendezvous. Anyway, This may be nothing compared to others, I’m just glad I made it! Looking forward for greater bike rides. 🙂
