The funny thing with myths is that there is usually some element of truth to them. But mostly they take us down that dangerous hole of comparison. It has been a process for me to realize that there were things I was aspiring to that simply weren’t real to begin with. Allow me to outline some of the myths I got sucked into believing (and what I’ve decided to do instead!)
The new year may have offered a chance to turn over a new leaf in life, but in our family we started our new beginnings early. On December 1 we moved into a new house here in Banff when the one we were renting was sold to a new owner. That’s a lot of “new” in two sentences. But, I think it conveys just how much change we’ve experienced around here.
I can’t shake this part of myself – this yearning desire, this need, for a personal connection with the outdoors. And as my little one grows up, I feel opportunity returning. Which is why it’s so hard when things fall through.
I grew up learning how to bike by using a tricycle, and then a bike with training wheels. I vividly remember the moment I first felt what it was like to balance on two wheels, on my own. By the time I had learned to balance without any aids, I was six or seven years old. But now, a few companies, such as Burley, are changing the way kids learn to bike.
