Milestones and Change
10 years ago, when I was at a crossroads in life, I had been rejected by few and accepted by many, I was ready to do something that I wanted to do. I had to stop trying to fit in where I didn't belong, stop trying to be someone who I was not.
I launched a ride program with the dream of getting kids on mountain bike outings in the woods. The program has morphed and evolved as time has gone by, but I have always had the same dream: to acquire a vehicle that I could use to transport kids and bikes out into the forest.
The time came to move forward with that plan this winter. There were several indicators that made this obvious, one major one being that I had put way to many miles on my personal vehicle, to the point that it now has some irreparable damage! So be it. It was worth it to get the kids out of their environments and into God's creation.
What a great day, not only for the program, but a milestone for me. Change is good, reaching goals is good, and milestones give a the encouragement to let us know that we are indeed moving forward. Sometimes slow, sometimes cruising along, but moving forward is the process!
