Up to now, Sweet Marie had led a quiet life. She hadn't been out there in a few decades, and wanted a taste of the night life. She didn't know where to start, but the bartender said he knew exactly what she needed. He gave her a couple of shots from the blue bottle, followed by a tall glass of the white and black bottle.

She liked the way she could feel it all the way down to her toes.

(More non-CCM bits; marked "Made in Germany" in two different fonts, caps have a barely visible crest with a "U")
Everything is turning smoothly.

U stands for Union. They produce pedals, lights and other parts. You can find parts from this company on almost every German bike.

Sweet Marie was influenced by motivational quotes she had been reading.

"The trouble with not having a goal is that you can spend your life running up and down the field and never score." –Bill Copeland

"If you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time." –Zig Ziglar

"A goal is not always meant to be reached; it often serves simply as something to aim at." –Bruce Lee

Apparently, goals were also useful for life, and Kung Fu.

Life altering change can be a long process, where progress is incremental, with painful setbacks.

Sometimes it felt like the world was conspiring to tear her down to bits.

Sweet Marie was learning to ignore the pain and accept small rewards she was given from accomplishing the baby steps. She'd build herself back up, and be better than ever before!
