I made these necklaces from the coins I smashed on the tracks as research for my new short story, Pennies on the Tracks (which I already submitted — fingers crossed).
These affirmations serve to remind me of some positive actions I can take on a daily basis during these very trying times in our country and world. If there is one thing I’ve learned on this journey, it’s that there is always a positive next step forward.
For more inspiration, please be sure to see my book, Traveling at the Speed of Bike. I did tons of experiential research, and I wrote my heart out for you in the hopes of helping you make your life and community a little bit better (whether or not you ever ride a bike).
Trust. Dare. Believe. Dream. Love. Hope. And seize the day in every way possible today, folks. We got this.
A portion of proceeds from the sale of my book is donated to help more women and girls ride bikes. Currently, that means funding my ability to do “Pedal Power with Pattie” Basic Bike Skills Classes for women and teen girls for free.
