I’ve done a lot to get traction in my life as a newly single person in the last month, and it seems that whenever I initiate a new task along that path that it gets easier to pedal. It feels very much like riding a bike: you start out in a low gear, and as you get moving you can shift into a higher one. You’re moving along at a quicker pace without exerting any more effort.
On the other hand, it doesn’t feel like I have a lot of stamina, and my “single muscles” seem weak. But I know from past experience that if you ride your bike often, it gets easier and easier.
