A Weekend in My New City!

bike riding in a new city

Being in a new city/state is so exciting! I’ve met so many great people since my time in North Carolina, and I can truly say that I’ve grown tremendously as a person.

One thing about moving to a new state is that you are forced to step outside of your comfort zone in every way! Leaving your family/ friends behind and building a new social circle from scratch can be frightening, but nonetheless a very rewarding experience.

In attempt to build my personal network, I have gone to different meetup groups to meet new people. & this Saturday I went to a bike riding meetup! Can I say we had so much FUN & I also met some fellow bloggers.

I hadn’t rode a bike in probably 10+ years, so I underestimated how hard it would be for me to remember how to ride! During the bike ride I started to tell myself..”you’re going to fall”….”why did you think this was a good idea”….and I was really a little nervous about riding a bike in a busy, traffic congested city.

Once I got over being dramatic lol, I really enjoyed myself, and was proud that I tried something new.

& that I once again stepped outside of my comfort zone.

Yay for growth!
