Today’s blog topic: Where do you find acceptance? For your ideas? For the secret notions you have for who you really want to be? Or think you are? Who are the friends, family or co-workers who are most accepting of your true self?
The place I find acceptance, peace, and where I can be myself, is the road. When I am out on a motorcycle trip, I think as I ride, I don’t listen to music or any noise, nor do I talk to anyone. I do a lot of thinking out there, I formulate stories, inventions, and other ideas begin to grow and take shape.
When the riding day is done, my riding partner listens respectfully and non-judgmentally to whatever I have to say. I can be myself, I can say what I want without having to think about how my words are going to be received. I can talk with him about any silly dreams and ideas I might have.
It is no wonder I look forward to my vacations when I can truly relax.
