“I ask you right here please to agree with me that a scar is never ugly. That is what the scar makers want us to think. But you and I, we must make an agreement to defy them. We must see all scars as beauty. Okay? This will be our secret. Because take it from me, a scar does not form on the dying. A scar means, I survived.”

I’ve had a lot of success lately with alternate viewpoints. I have a lot of fun doing this with trails- I’ll ride them up, and back, around, fast, slow, running, biking, healthy, sick, happy, frustrated….no two times on the trail are the same. Each experience is different.

So though I rode the Secret Stash again today, I took the trails that I normally ride down, up. And vice verse. And just as anticipated, it was a new experience. And I relished it.
