This blog introduces you to my special brand of BIKE. I show you how to find your Best self, access your Inner strength, tune in to your Killer instincts, and use your Expressive voice. It's inspiring, spiritual, quirky, and it's all in your head. It's about ATTITUDE, not exercise, though that might be a side benefit.

Welcome new people into your fold

When we're in recovery, in transition, or any kind of healing mode, we often retreat from other people. Either we don't feel like being around people, or we don't want to contaminate them with a foul mood.

But this time is the best time to welcome new people into your fold, or to connect with those who want to help you succeed. It's part of growing as a human being. It means you're able to connect with others on a personal level, to know when to ask for help, and to accept what's offered to you in the spirit in which it's given.

We'll do that here this week when Katie Hinderer (pictured above),whom I've only "met" because of the Blogathon, serves as my very first guest blogger. She'll pop in on Thursday, May 21 to share with us her thoughts about what it takes to overcome the judgement that often follows the freelancer who leaves the full time job to become self-employed. People don't often take you seriously. And if you've ever felt as though you weren't taken seriously about anything in life, you'll relate to Hinderer's thoughts.

If you'd like to know more about my guest blogger, who also happens to be in the midst of writing her first book--or so I hear--please visit her at Write Beyond the Cubicle. Be sure to visit us both on May 21, when the two of us switch blogs for a day. Hinderer will be here, and I'll be at hers, with a post about how you can use my special brand of BIKE to overcome rejection. Don't we all need a lesson in that?
