Keep on Making it Happen
I had only planned on running our “Make it Happen Mondays” feature for the month of January….but every week is a great time to Make it Happen, right? I received a whole lot of positive feedback on our Monday feature, so I’ve decided to keep on Making it Happen.
One year ago yesterday, the very first post went up on Loving the Bike. I had a few goals in mind for the year (both personal and for the site) and set off last February 6th to make them all happen. A year later and here I am realizing that I reached them all….and then some.
More than anything, I wanted to use the blog as a means to get more involved with the world cycling scene, meet and share with like minded people, and have a creative outlet that would feed my passion for the bike. Through this blog, so many incredible things have already happened…and I’ve really just started to get my feet wet. Thanks to all of you for helping to make it happen.
My biggest personal goal was to make it to the promise land. Last February I was in the middle of my third Canadian winter and knew that, for me, the biggest mission was to find my way out of there. As I explained in my “Promise Land” post last February, I had really thought we’d be making the move to Grenada or Belize. That could still very well happen, but all the right pieces weren’t in place just yet. A brainstorming session last May with my wife turned our attention to Austin, Texas…..and the bending of the universe followed soon after. We now had a goal and we set out to Make it Happen.
Within 6 weeks we had locked down most of the ingredients to make this a reality, and a couple weeks after that we were set for our move. To be honest, I’m not sure that Austin is the final destination, but it sure does make a great Promise Land right now….and I’d be more than stoked to make this city my final resting place.
Without getting all motivationy on you, I can tell you this. When you create a goal, get excited about it, and set off to make it happen…..absolutely anything and everything is possible. That goes for your life, your cycling, your destiny. Go on now….Make It Happen.
