Two Hundred Miles of Thoughts – Butt Aches

All growth starts at the end of your comfort zone.

— Tony Robbins —

Thoughts from the bike…

The other day I was catching up with an old friend and he asked me what I had been up to. I told him that I had amped my exercise regimen a lot during the pandemic because it helped me cope with the pandemic’s partner — anxiety.

I then told him I had just completed two hundred miles of bicycle riding in the last five days and he immediately said, “How do you ride a bike for that long? My butt aches really bad after six miles.”

I just laughed and told him I had an ergonomically kind seat.

The truth is, my butt aches every time I ride too but eventually it either becomes numb or I forget about it.

I’m not about to allow a butt ache to interrupt the joys of riding my bicycle.

Growth in any aspect of our life requires us to take on the feelings associated with being uncomfortable.

What area(s) of your life is God nudging you to improve?

What new dream is God nudging you to tackle?

What relationship is God nudging you to strengthen?

What comfort(s) is/are serving as roadblocks to your personal growth?

Is your butt aching from sitting around and not doing what you know you need to do?

That’s a butt ache you don’t want to have. 🙂

Galatians 6:9, “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.”
