Sometimes you try to fit in the bunch, sometimes you try to be better to impress on someone. Sometime you just want to be cool and that others want you to seem cool.
I didn’t succeed on the picture above on my first cx training with my new Crux last autumn as I was the only one not riding for CKCX 😉
When putting higher expectations on yourself or trying to be someone you aren’t it will break at some time. And it takes extra energy that you could put on something fun or important instead.
Most of my life I have been wanting to be someone else, someone better, someone cooler, someone that attracts more women, someone that is a fast fit cyclist.
But I slowly learning to enjoy the best of me. I may not be so strong but I’m pretty light and love to attack a climb like Contador. I may not be the coolest but I have a dream of just having clothes I think I look good in, and getting pretty close according to myself. I may not be the most attractive guy but I only meet great women’s and I prefer quality over quantity.
I may not be the most extrovert guy but I can be happy anyway 😉
So be yourself, enjoy life as much as you can and get surrounded by friends who are your friends no matter if you got a good or bad day. Even the bad days can be good then:
