So, while I have been otherwise busy there have been a ton of great things worth sharing. Here we go…
This is an article, but there is a video that goes along with it (click and you will see what I mean). If this doesn’t touch your heart strings…wow.
This is will make you smile. So, not that I have watched it a ton…but it looks like his mom totally encourages him to do this at the beginning & just keep encouraging him. So sweet. And funny. I love some crazy dancing. Keep dancing bro.
And now we take a slight turn. I never thought I would post a video about breaking a horse on the blog, but that day has come. This week we attended a conference and they showed a slightly shortened version of this video. The guy was talking about how horses are community animals and want to belong to a group. And how there are better ways to “break” them than doing it through cruelty essentially. This guy studied horses his whole life, growing up on a ranch. And this video is talks about the power of the join-up. It’s pretty powerful. Full disclosure, I am totally an animal person & I really do love horses, but I think this moves beyond that. I love how he talks to the horse, how he tries to be as kind as possible- narrating what he is doing and why. I think my favorite part is when he says, basically, that he isn’t getting upset or worked up- she’s just a horse and doing what she is supposed to do. As a parent that seemed to hit me right in the forehead. They are just doing what they are supposed to do. Crazy…I could go on.

I think you can tell a lot about a person by what they read and I am no exception. I love encouraging and empowering women, and love reading others who are doing so. Shauna wrote this, about what she learned from her mother. It is possibly one of my favorite posts ever…of all time…in the history of the world. It’s a little long, but totally & completely worth the read. Almost everyone I have talked about this said they read it to their spouse- so guy or gal, I think you will get something out of it.
So that is all for now. I hope you enjoy
