34 years and Counting

Today hubby and I celebrated our 34th Anniversary! It has been an incredible adventure together. How’d we make it this far? Love.

Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. (1 Corinthians 13:4-7 NLT)

We don’t always get it right, but we don’t give up. It is worth it!

34 years and counting!!

34 years and counting!!

We are all People

Peace between these countries may be a pipe dream, but I like what Coca-Cola did. We are all people and maybe more alike than we’d like to think. Enjoy!

Profile of a Female Motorcyclist: Meet Sash a.k.a. @2MuchTina

I have another new cyber-friend I want to introduce to you! Her nickname is Sash and her Twitter handle is @2MuchTina. Sash is from San Diego, CA, but currently on what she calls “our Road Pickle Motorcycle Bohemia, so I’m mobile!” Sasha and her hubby are on serious road trip. You can catch her adventures on her blog SashMouth

How long have you been riding a motorcycle? Technically, I’ve been riding for 2 years. Actually, I’ve been consistently riding about 5 months. I got my license, but didn’t have my own bike to ride. I rode my hubs extra bike, a Yamaha Roadstar, but it was too heavy for me. So I took almost an entire year off of solo riding. I just started riding this last January.

How did you learn to ride? I took a course to learn and loved every minute of it. But I’ve spent many, many years riding pillion. First with my Daddy, then my high school boyfriend and now with my hubs.

What was your first motorcycle? My current motorcycle, Kawasaki Ninja 500, Katie Scarlet

How many have you owned? Just one! But I sold my Mercedes to buy her. I don’t even own a car now.

Why did you want to ride a motorcycle? My Daddy rode when I was a girl. He had many friends that rode and I wanted to ride with him all of the time. That feeling of flying, being free, never left me. I think it’s natural for most passengers to wonder from time to time what it is like to be the rider. But I always knew that one day I would ride. My time just finally came! Riding is the closest to being at one with my soul as I can get while still being alive. It is the most “alive” thing I do. Every sense is heightened and I take in all the world in a single breath while riding. I can’t imagine life without it now.

Tell us about your riding.  We are riding a 6-month motorcycle road trip around the U.S. currently. We ride about 250-300 miles a day, riding only a couple of days a week. We try to stay in one city for a week at a time and then go exploring while we are there. I love riding, but I deal with chronic pain from fibromyalgia, so I have to pace myself.

What advice do you have for women who ride or want to ride a motorcycle? Ride your own ride. Don’t try to keep up with anyone, be like anyone, ride like anyone. Be You. Boldly Embrace Your Own Uniqueness and while doing so Ride Your Own Ride. Listen to advice, but weigh it with your own good sense.

What is the longest trip that you’ve taken on your cycle? I’m currently 3500 miles into our Road Pickle Motorcycle Bohemia Trip, so that’s the longest.

Do you belong to any motorcycle groups? I belong to a few online through Google+, but none offline yet.

Do you have a favorite riding story? Riding from Bisbee, AZ to the NM border on Route 80, I saw the most beautiful scenery. My hubs Highway was in front of me, and I followed him on this two lane road for over 100 miles, taking in all of the wilderness. I saw a snake slither across the road in front of me, I saw two deer, and then a fawn, simply munching in the meadows. But at one point we came over a ridge and all I could see for miles was golden grasses flowing in the wind. I’m from California, so we don’t see things like that. I started to weep, really weep, with gratitude that I was in that place, in that moment, being so grateful that beauty like this existed somewhere, always.

What do you do when you’re not riding? I’m an internet publisher, author, marketer, sales director, motivator and pain in my hubs’ ass. I spend most of my time writing or selling advertising. I give motivational speeches to groups, mostly women and with my hubs we coach clients to build their own blogs and earn an income from them. I’m the very proud mother of a 23-year-old beauty Olivia, who recently married the man who was made for her, David. My book, “Finding Christ Inside” was published in 2009 and it is my poetic narrative explaining that I’ve found spirituality within me, not within the confines of religion.

What gift did your mom give you? Here’s an old post I wrote as a tribute to my mom.

Take a Dirt Road …

I’m hankering for a ride. The weather will eventually catch-up to my dreams and I’ll be on two wheels again. In the meantime y’all who are riding enjoy!

Take a Dirt Road
See Where It Leads
Search for Adventure
See What’s Over the Hill
Take Your Shoes Off
And Play in a Stream
Run through the Woods
Be Wild and Free
Take a Break from the Chaos
Of Everyday Life
Take Some “Me” Time
To Discover the Sublime
And While Exploring the Back Roads
You Might Even Find
More of Yourself
Than You Ever Dreamed
Was Inside

Next ten years or last ten years?

My husband showed me this quote by Gary Vaynerchuk and thought it worth sharing.

Sure challenges me to look in my heart and dust off a few dreams. Not sure where it will lead, but hopefully to living my life more passionately. How about you?
