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.

How many do-overs does it take?

“Often we can achieve an even better result when we stumble yet are willing to start over, when we don't give up after a mistake, when something doesn't come easily but we throw ourselves into trying, when we're not afraid to appear less than perfectly polished..."

Such a powerful quote. It's from Sharon Salzberg, an author and meditation expert who practices loving kindness. That's another way to refer to self-compassion. We don't do it enough. Today, I ask you to be willing to start over. Be willing to forgive yourself and others (even if you're not able to do that in person) of the mistakes we make. Be willing to try again. Be willing to be less than perfect. Be willing to let yourself have as many do-overs as it takes. I'm just asking. ~Jackie
