We left at 6.30am, because riding in the dark was not a succes. After riding for a while we had the worst road since we started our journey (unfortunately no picture of it). Another test for me of letting go control. I was asking myself over and over again why I don’t want to let go control? It results in a lot of stress from things that can go wrong. Then I noticed that my perfectionism is a result of feeling helpless. I have to be strong because this helplessness. Nothing is allowed to go wrong. But I learned one thing the last days with all the challenges on our way, there is always a solution… So no need to feel helpless. I decided that I’m worthy enough to have trust.
Still in my head instead of feeling my body and feeling joyful, suddenly I noticed what was bothering me. Tilasmi wanted so much to Khajuraho that he was more busy with reaching the goal then enjoying the way to it. When I spoke out to Tilasmi my head was suddenly quiet and I could feel life again.
20 Km before Nagpur, our stop for today, Tilasmi felt the bike shaking. The back tire was getting flat… fortunately a puncture shop was just about 2 km. Again a repair of the bike. They didn’t want us to pay, they just wanted a selfie with us. At 8pm we found a hotel in Nagpur. A long day.
