Vehicle of Change

Copyright 2015 by R.A. Robbins
“A motorcycle is a vehicle of change, after all. It puts the wheels beneath a midlife crisis, or a coming-of-age saga, or even just the discovery of something new, something you didn’t realize was there. It provides the means to cross over, to transition, or to revitalize; motorcycles are self-discovery’s favorite vehicle.”

Copyright 2015 by R.A. Robbins

Breaking Open

Copyright 2017 by R.A. Robbins

“How strange that the nature of life is change, yet the nature of human beings is to resist change. And how ironic that the difficult times we fear might ruin us are the very ones that can break us open and help us blossom into who we were meant to be.”
― Elizabeth LesserBroken Open: How Difficult Times Can Help Us Grow

We Must Learn to be Still

Embrace the Change

Copyright 2015 by R.A. Robbins

“A lot of people resist transition and therefore never allow themselves to enjoy who they are. Embrace the change, no matter what it is; once you do, you can learn about the new world you’re in and take advantage of it.” — Nikki Giovanni
