Horses have always been a part of my life.
I used to ride bareback at a full gallop, wind blowing through my hair, energy surging through me, free and brave! Riding was something that relaxed me.
Now things are different. Its too windy to ride. I feel a migraine headache coming on. My horse seems a little hyper today. The arena is too crowded. I don't know anyone here.
Better not ride today. I will do it tomorrow.
I can make more excuses than the day is long. More promises to myself.
More letting myself down.
No more -- this has to end.
I will not let fear rule my life.
I will not let myself down.
