Life is a Journey

The other day I was riding one of my old bikes to Ceres, an eco-farm that has a used bike department. One of my mates was riding the other one that I was dropping off. We were being silly buggers as per usual and I was riding into the back of his bike with my front tire trying to knock him off.

Well I ate the deck. My wheel got caught on one side and I fell the other way trying to compensate.  After skidding down the road for about a metre and a half I came to a halt. The damage wasn’t too bad. My left leg had torn little lines of skin off, my ankle had got a scratch, elbow had a little scratch on it too but my hands had taken the most impact and were pretty torn up.

After I had got up and started riding down to Ceres again I realised that I had fallen off on purpose.

Lately I had been quite numb. I just needed to feel again and feel I did.

It wasn’t that I was depressed or that life wasn’t going good. Infact at the time everything was going quite swimmingly. I think life had gotten stale. I needed to feel something again. Sometimes life gets boring and you need some adventure to keep you feeling sane.

That fall set in place a time in my life I would like to call trial and adventure.  Over the next month I completely changed who and what I was. It was an intense journey of self discovery, experimentation, love, loss and acceptance. I found out a lot about myself and accepted a lot of things that had been burdens on my life.

I think it let me get on with my life and carry out what my purpose is. This journey of self discovery and life purpose is something that I think could benefit many people all over the world. If only civilization was brave enough to face up to reality and take a step out of their comfort zone, find their edge and live it daily.

Over the next few days I will be writing a series of articles that dive deep into purpose, self discovery, adventure and what happened to me over the past month. I shall share with you the way I have found out where I am going in life, what I needed to see and hear to discover this and how I figured all this out.

There is going to be a lot of jumping and weaving through parts of my life that I haven’t shared yet on here and some things that I have not shared with anyone up until this point. Hopefully I can edit it in such a way that it all makes sense and I apologise if it doesn’t at points.

That’s all for now. Enjoy the series, I hope it will be as beneficial to you as it will be for me writing it and living it. I hope that it will guide you on your journey through life and even if it only gives value to one person then it will be worth all the time and effort I have put into it.
