It’s Just Like Riding a Bike

You’ve probably heard the saying “It’s like riding a bike.” People usually say it when they mean that you can pick something up that you haven’t done in a long time.

Last week I was on vacation and I rode a bike for the first time in 15 years. It was rough starting out, but once I found my balance (and got over the toe-clip issue), it all came back. As I was pedaling along in the woods, I thought about the old saying and realized that it could refer to any number of actions that people just stop doing.

Are you someone who used to have a great system for filing your paperwork, but instead of filing, you’ve been piling lately?

Did you put things away until you had kids and then you started to settle for dumping in any available container so your house looked tidy?

Did you stop doing household chores regularly because you were so tired from working long hours? Did that lead to buying things you already had because you were too tired to look for them?

It is true, you can go back to something you once did. Whether it’s something you truly enjoy or just something that needs to get done to make your life easier, get “back on the bike.”

What habits would you like to return to?
