A couple of weeks I was out on a lackadaisical training ride. I was feeling sorry for myself and then something caught my eye. To my right I saw a yellow wildflower. This tenacious little flower was at the base of a massive concrete utility pole. I pulled over to get a closer look. I was in awe as I admired its resoluteness. I looked around and didn’t see sprinklers or any type of irrigation. I thought to myself — wow this flower’s story is one of perseverance, persistence and downright determination!
So why was I feeling so sorry for myself? No reason whatsoever! That little voice inside my head said — GET BACK ON THE BIKE! From now when I’m down or not feeling so great while training on the bike, on the J-O-B, or life in general, I will think of that little yellow flower surviving against insurmountable odds.
