Take off the training wheels

Hi, dreamers! Natascha here from holisticmigration.com

Today I am going to be talking about living your life to the fullest. I mean living your life the way you really want to live your life and not what people expect of you. You most likely know what training wheels are and what they are used for. You learn how to ride a bike with training wheels, to keep you safe when you are learning. At some point you will have to take off the training wheels and ride your bike without the training wheels. What am I trying to say? Life in itself is initially like riding a bike with the training wheels on. You are formed and shaped from what you learn in school, what you are taught by your parents or what you are taught by the society. Yes that’s nice and safe, just like riding a bike with the training wheels.

Back in Switzerland, we did that. We lived our lives just like riding a bike with training wheels. At some point we decided to do what we want to do and stop listening to the society. We literarily took of the training wheels off the bike of our lives. We moved to Australia!

When you take these training wheels off, and live life to the fullest, this is when you discover the power in true freedom. Just like riding a bike, it is way more fun without the training wheels. Life is absolute amazing when you live freely. Do not listen to the society and all the seemingly voice of reasoning around you urging you to live “safe”.  Remember you took the training wheels off your bike and you can still ride your bike. Life is basically the same thing.

Don’t get me wrong, I am not trying downplay the importance of society, education and family. I am only saying these things are foundational just like the training wheels, at some point you have got to build on the foundation and sometimes, the foundation requires a redesign.

I am using the image of the bike, I mean to be riding a bike with and without the training wheels on because it fits perfectly into the way we live our lives. We are being too careful to not rock the boat. Truth is we don’t even know what is on the other side of the divide. We are in our comfort zone, basking in the euphoria of the familiar. We still got our training wheels on.

It could be changing your job, it could be the kind of life you want to live. You probably have been contemplating going on that tour to see the world. Take those training wheels off and live your dreams.

Don’t only dream your life, live your dream

Yours in inspiration
