What It Takes To Do New Jersey Ride Against AIDS
What does it take to do the Ride? Simply this: “Yes”.
Like so many things in Life, it simply takes a Yes to make things happen. Its amazing what happens when we say “Yes”. Problems slip away. The impossible becomes possible, and the details of Life become just that – details.
Try this on. Say “No” and see what happens. See how the door slams shut? See how all the fears, uncertainty and doubt creep in? See how all that’s left are the normal four walls of your everyday life? It’s probably a great life, and those walls are probably decorated very nicely, but they are still just your four walls.
Now say “Maybe”.
OK. The door just cracked open. See that little bit of Light and Life on the other side? See how things suddenly seem a little bit more Interesting, a little more Possible? How you are curious as to what is on the other side?
Now say “Yes”. Don’t worry. Your Life will still be waiting for you. But notice as soon as you say “Yes”, how you just had to smile, how the World suddenly shifts, seems brighter and more interesting? You’re not sure what you said “Yes” to, but suddenly the door swings open and there is a whole New World outside, waiting to be discovered.
Now hold on. It’s going to be a great Ride!
