I love riding because it’s so applicable to… other stuff.
There’s a concept in biomechanics that you need to sit forward on your horse – you can’t get left behind.
And that’s true with life, too. FORWARD is imperative. Moving forward isn’t necessarily away or towards, but it’s having a trajectory and working towards something. It’s when life throws you curveballs holding, adjusting, reframing – but not going backwards.
Sometimes I’m better than others at remembering this. But I try. And I love it as a mantra.
Pushing forward, into the wind.
