You are Never to Old to Fly

0

You are never to old to try new things. As a matter of fact, I will always remember a friends words to me, “Mia, when you stop living that’s when you become old.”

I started to ride a year ago — I think– I am not much for lessons, I get very bored quickly– same for our rescue horse Miracle.

I like to be together with him, listening to what he likes to do. And then, I follow his desire.

Riding out in the Forrest is with mixed feelings. In the start he walks in a good tempo, and we can both look around the beautiful nature. Then, he desires for trotting, then faster and faster. If he could decide, we would cantor through the woods, happily. Even if I would be terrified.

Miracle is 27 year old former school horse from southern Italy. At their place their were no pastures, only outdoor arena and then he would be back in his box.

Where he stays now, it is heavenly with nature, pastures, in and outdoors arenas. He got a big box and a lot of healthy food.

Sometimes we look at the people jumping, and my daughters jumping lessons. It looks fun!

I asked Miracle if he wanted to jump, and he gladly did jump a bunny jump. His ears were forward, his speed fast and …..landed perfectly and made some rodeo happy kicks.

Me, I closed my eyes

thank you. Olivia my daughter for coaching and giggling when your mom is riding. If it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t do this.

Miracle, my love, you are bringing out my joy and fear inside of me. How amazing you are.

That’s Amore!

Let Women Into your Life

To my daughter.

Always believe in yourself. Find women that are not afraid of sharing their wisdom to you. Women that want to help you get stronger and wiser, that want you to succeed in life.

These women will come and go in your life.

Listen and remember, and grow.

Then, you do the same.

Thank you Mi for helping my daughter grow!

That’s Amore!

Breathing Together

0

Animals has always been a big part of my adult life. They have always been there for me, they never betrayed me.

Without any expectations or demands.

In their moment I can be me and breathe.

Together in the nature it is a higher experience, the birds singing, butterflies flying around, colors sparkling around with a touch of the sun.

I was being told that if you spend a lot of time in the nature it lowers the risk of being exposed by cancer!

One thing I know for sure, is that i become very different, –in a good way, –being surrounded by horses and nature.

Calm and thankful.

Sometimes my days can be stressful, or I am very sad. I hurry to the stable when I get the chance, and after only five minutes, have I landed in myself.

This is why it’s not difficult for me rescuing horses.

It’s my way of saying, thank you!

That’s Amore!

Words Transforms who You are

brain talks

Yesterday, a person told me, “You are impossible!”

Now, you are reading it with your own inner ‘voice’ and it might not sound so bad to you. And also, in what contents was it said to me? Was their a little giggle in the executers voice, or was it said in a frustration tone?

Words are powerful, and words can have different meanings.

We use words every day, but are we aware of how they are being said, and received?

The whole day yesterday alone in my car for 4 hours, was I wrestling with the words ‘you are impossible’ It was like my brain had this dialog;

‘you are impossible!’ followed quickly with the words; ‘No you are not!’

“yes you are!”

“shut up!”

“no I won’t , you are impossible!”

Frustration that I was actually waisting my time listening to this yida yada.

However, it actually goes way back in time, to my childhood. Being told I wasn’t good enough, and I couldn’t do this or that.

Teachers, telling me I wasn’t good enough! (not all of course)

When being born, you start to receive words, and for each year, you are being included with more and more different people. That will tell you, nice words, harsh words, and words that can kill you (suicide)

The brain is a receiver. “You are stupid!” someone tells you (or you say it yourself).

The brain says, “Ok I am stupid”!

Encourage yourself, family, children, strangers, schoolchildren, animals….everyone you meet. Even to our Nature. Then yours, and others internal voice will be so much pretty.

Be aware of what you say, and be aware of what you listen to.
