Get Out of First Gear

“Life is like a ten-speed bicycle.  Most of us have gears we never use.”
Charles M. Schulz

Seems in life it is essential, to gear our mind to full potential. Please lend an ear, this you may want to hear.

There is no boasting if you’re only coasting. Results may be adverse if you’re forever in reverse.  Best to move forward by pedaling toward, a favorable direction. The rut in the road, an act of deflection or an undesirable reflection?

You get out of bed, shake your head and you’re in first gear. What a great start, you’re thinking smart! Again, best you pedal toward a positive direction; are you with me? Have you switched to second gear? Oh, but you must! There’s still time to adjust.

C’mon, there’s no time for crying, you must keep trying. Do you want to be a wannabe throughout your life? No, the answer is not a new life. You can’t buy a new life like you would buy a new bike!

You must be resourceful and not remorseful; squelch your fear and cultivate cheer. Now, are you with me? I’m so proud of you that you heeded my cue coz this is all about you.

Get out of first gear!

-Eugenia
