Saturday we rode 48 miles, out by Wild horse pass and all the way around south mountain. We saw miniature horses and horse mounted Cowboys.
On this particular ride I learned a piece of myself that I never really realized.
I like to be in control or have the perception of control. On my ride with Anthony this week I kept asking him about the route. How far are we going? How long will it take? Where are we going? After every turn I asked what is next?!
I try to be this easy going person when in reality I probably persuade and steer people in the direction that I want to go. In a sense I’m fairly easy going, and when something doesn’t go as planned I don’t go bonkers. I believe for the most part I handle it with a direct and effective action. My close friends can either concurs or contest this.
What I’m taking away from this week’s ride is that I need to let someone else take the reigns and lead every once in awhile. Put trust in others that plans will go accordingly and if not, that together we can make it work.
