So I have spent the day trying to figure out what I need to do, what to say and what to tell my friends and my tribe.
The last year has been very eventful. My life has had many changes and challenges. Starting a new business at the same time has been beyond challenging. Many times I had no idea how I would overcome challenges thrown my way. But I did. And then another, and another one. And again. And again.
And I am proud to be where I am. Proud to have overcome most things thrown at me over the last year. But it has come at a cost.
The truth being the last week I have come to realise that I am not okay. I am not coping. Most days I am a mess at one point or another. I feel like I am on an emotional roller coaster. And some days I am really bad. The days challenges or tasks overwhelm me and I can barely comprehend how to get through the day, never mind the week. I have pushed myself physically, emotionally and mentally and as a result found myself in a place where depression and anxiety are yelling loudly. Truth be told I have forgotten how to put myself first. To look after myself and even lost track of what I want from my days.
And so I have made the decision to take a step back for 6 months. To put some projects and events on hold. To put myself first. To invest in me so that I can be the best version of myself. And I can come back stronger to continue my goal of supporting others.
What does this mean?
It means that Tribal Cycling won't be;
- Running social rides as regularly.
- Running our Mtb Weekend to Derby.
- Running our weekend of Cycling and Surf to Noosa.
However will still;
- Run a limited calendar of skills clinics
- Only a few private clients for skill development and training
- And we will still launch our cycling kit at the start of June. But for pre order only.
I want to thank our amazing community for all your ongoing support. And to everyone who has and continues to support me, and the goals I have for Tribal Cycling.
I am looking forward to some time to recharge and do some exploring of my own.
