I Could Replace

I was feeling anxious.
I got on my bike.
And rode.
Anxiety couldn’t keep up.

 Out Riding

I could replace “anxious” with:









Please Note:  

I do not advocate riding without a helmet.  But I didn’t want to mess up my hair for this picture.

    I always love seeing your carefree hair. Good you tell possible new visitors that you wear a helmet. Don’t want to set a bad example, Colleen.
    As far as all of those negative emotions: Let them: “Bite your dust,” Colleen!!

  4. Love the picture! It’s awesome to be able to ride all those frustrations off and send them into the wind!

  5. Love your post Colleen 😀

    lol @ your note! I understand completely. 😀 There’s nothing like a good pedal (walk, run, etc.) to help leave the worry behind.

  7. Yeah, really, who wants a character with messed up hair??! A great way to rid yourself of anger!

  8. Haha, love the disclaimer about your hair and the helmet. I still think there’s a book with all this drawings and writing. 😉 So many great messages in so many clever ways. ❤

    Sounds like the perfect way to let go of stress and be free – and what says freedom better than messed up hair! 🙂

    How great to have such a positive outlet for those big, heavy emotions! And sometimes we rely on photoshop to promote our ideas…you do look much less encumbered without the helmet! 🙂

    • 😉 This outlet has been a life saver for me. Which, by the way, is why I do not advocate helmetless rides. I’ve needed my helmet on those occasions when my head hit the pavement. Hair and all! 😉

    There’s just something about riding a bike that eventually your thoughts melt away and something better gets left behind. Loved the hair too!

    You make a great Hell on Wheels, MBC. Just saying. No helmet can control that perfectly drawn hair. ❤
