Wise words from Albert Einstein "Life is like riding a bicycle, in order to keep your balance you must keep moving."
I've always wanted to have a pink bike. There are so much 'bike' memories from my childhood that I am keeping until now. And as we grow old, we learn new things about 'bike' and 'life'.
You need balance. If you lean too far to one side, you'll fall: Regarding character traits, we should keep in mind the 'path of the middle'. It is important to always pay attention to where we are leaning.
Get back up again!: We learn in life that there will always be struggles but it is not falling down that determines our worth; it's whether we get back up.
In the beginning you stumble, but with more experience you can really get far!: We learn from our experiences no matter how big or small the problems are. Our life is a series of learning from our mistakes. That's how we learned to walk and talk. That's life!
If you look at the ground instead of looking up ahead, you'll lose your balance and crash: It's easy to live simply in our own but we are not disconnected from the world and ourselves. In life, we should look up and see the outside world so we can bloom and flourish.
When the road throws you a curve, go with it!: When a turn is coming up, we lean with the curve. We must not fight it and go the other way. Life sometimes throws us curves too, and in to be on top, we need to dance with the music, go with the flow. Accept all the pains and keep moving.
A bike helps you to get to where you need to go. Some ride bikes just for the thrill of it: And some people believe that life is full of thrills. We didn't notice that we have places to get to. A bike is a tool; it is not the end goal. We must have our destination and If we must use wisely our life/bike how to go get that goal at the end of the race.
A bike doesn't move on its own: Life and bicycles need people to operate them. Without a person behind the handlebar, guiding and making choices, it just won't go anywhere.
When we get really good, you can do wheelies!: After we've been riding a bike for so long, we can start doing special stuff. Life is like that also. Once we get the hang of who we are and where we are going, we can pop some big stuffs too!
Cycling gives you muscles: Life toughens us, especially if we ride up hills. Riding down a hill may be fun and exciting but only riding up the hill strengthens our muscles.
You can't do it forever: Some people wish they could live forever. Some people believe it like me. But just like riding a bike, our body eventually wears out and we need to go home. The important things is that we enjoy the ride and doing what is pleasing to God, you we can get to where we need to go.
