Left a bit, right a bit.
It’s how most of us learned to ride a bike.
Start moving, and if you feel yourself starting to fall one way, lean the other.
While you’re still learning, you’re pretty conscious of what you’re doing.
Then all of a sudden you’re riding.
You’re a cyclist.
You stop thinking about what you’re doing and you just pedal.
Many of life’s processes operate similarly, requiring you to constantly adjust a little this way, a little that way, to arrive at a destination.
It makes you wonder if we might not learn to ‘ride our moods’.
What if, when you felt yourself falling one way, you could compensate by leaning the other?
What if a little mindfulness could get you to a happier place rather than a gloomier one?
Makes you think, doesn’t it?
