I objectively think of myself as hard core. If it is raining cats and dogs outside, I will still go riding. If it's windy as hell outside, I'll still go riding and scream F-yous, F's, A-hole, Beotch, and everything else at the wind for slowing me down.
But the one thing worse than the constant head wind to and fro or the rain storm is the ride buddy who either (A) tells you he is going to ride with you and cancels, or (B) tells you he is going to ride with you and cancels because the weather is too cold, too hot, too...boo hoo hoo...the wussy starts crying in front of you.
Here I am, I set aside time and rearrange my schedule and and this ***** cancels on me. No more. No more. I'm tired of waiting for people to go riding with. Hell, I don't even need them on my rides.
I guess some people have all the time in the world to get things done or lack thereof. I am by no-means in a rush to get things done...but I simply cannot tolerate people wasting my time...which probably explains why I don't hang around my friends because I find myself asking myself if my friends add value and quality to my existence.
Life is too damn short. I see in life too often that it is best qualities in us all that can trampled on and destroyed by the very same people we call friends and family. It is mediocrity from them all and others we haven't met that try to stifle or slow our progress towards self-excellence.
Be forewarned...stay away from those that don't promote or inspire self-excellence.
