4 weeks 3 Days till the ride

One reason I decided to do this ride was because I've been in a little funk lately. I don't think it's a problem to feel blue every once in while, but I was using up all my energy feeling sorry for myself. I read this quote from Viktor Frankl the other day and it made me realize that I need to get my shit together.
"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life—daily and hourly. Our answer must consist, not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual."

I decided that the best way to get out of my funk was to get focus on this ride. The first thing I need to do is clean up my environment. That is my goal for today. I'm going to clean my room and do laundry and surround myself with some good food.

Way to go man.

You know, I feel the same way about a junky apartment. It feels so good to clean up and get things in order.

I've heard it said, "cluttered house, cluttered mind."
