Did you have an invisible victory this week? I did.
I rode my bike to work (and back).
There are so many reasons why I mightn’t have: I didn’t want to get to work all sweaty. The path disappears for a bit, and I wasn’t quite sure where it came out. I’m lazy. I’d have to leave twenty minutes earlier. I might be late…
But my friend Sarah rode to work last week, and she inspired me. So I got up twenty minutes earlier, packed my deodorant, and hopped on my bike before I could talk myself out of it. On the way home, I stopped at the post office and then, when I got a flat tire, at target to buy a bike pump. I made it home. Smiling.
I’m sure no one whizzing past me in a car had any idea of my triumph, but it meant a lot to me. #invisiblevictory
Would you share your invisible victory from this week? Maybe it was cooking at home instead of picking up take-out on the way home. Or turning off facebook because your child wanted to spend some time with you. Or choosing to hold your tongue when it would have been more satisfying to shout.
