The ride today was hard. Physically hard….93 miles of rolling hills and hours of headwind making it a grind to keep going.
Mentally hard……I have shared life with these wonderful new friends and this was my last ride day. I am heading home back to work and family.
Emotionally hard….leaving likemindedness. These individuals from all over the United States, with varied backgrounds and ages, coming together, putting the Fuller vision before personal comfort was inspiring.
The patience, respectfulness, and encouragement I observed and took part in was always abundant, from the early morning start of the day to lights out.
This truly was a blessing to be a part of……there is nothing more satisfying than being a small part of a much bigger goal.
I found depth. I found rejuvenation (crazy because many muscles and joints are sore and aching).
Most importantly, I found a bigger picture. I will take this all back with me and strive to be a better version of myself……maybe others will see that new depth in me and want some too.
You never know, I may be back in the not too distant future …..bringing others to “the bigger picture” with me.
