It was SO nice yesterday to be back in my happy place. 💕 Horses. 🐎 Open fields. 🌱 Piece and quiet, and a whole lot of farm life. 🐄 Spending time with my beautiful friend @megan_kristine925 was just what I needed! ☀️
She was gracious enough to let me join her, and it was so refreshing to get out and enjoy some quality time with her and the ponies! 🐴She has been such an amazing (and beyond patient) friend and teacher.
Megan has always been such a huge inspiration to me. For years I watched videos of her riding and I kept thinking “man, one day I want to look that cool and kick ass riding a horse!” 😍 After years of talking to her about wanting to get back into riding, she convinced me to get over my massive fear of failure (little does she know 🙈), and convinced me to get back into horseback riding.
It scared me HORRIBLY that I might totally suck. 🤦🏼♀️ I did it anyways. For someone who hasn’t ridden in a hot minute, I was....decent! 😂 We’ll stick with decent. She made me feel like a million bucks. 💵 She even took me shopping for gear. 😭 I mean, that’s an amazing friend, right there. 💕
Surround yourself with the people that make your heart happy. ☀️ People that make you feel confident. 💪🏻 The people that won’t judge you (like when you haven’t ridden in 5+ years and you’re pretty sure you look like a drunken hot mess trying to ride a horse, but you’re having so much fun you really don’t care 🤷🏼♀️ 😂). The ones that’ll make ya laugh until it hurts. 💕
If your tribe don’t help you to r i s e up in life and push you out of your comfort zone, then they’re not the right community for you. 💁🏼♀️ Go find your people and hold on to them. Love on them. 💕 Let them know they’re amazing. ☀️
Another killer night on the river with @olc_phisher and @fishgodz. Had my best night for numbers, with a handful of 3+lb fish, but also some smaller fish and some males in the mix.
