My Favorite Picture

This picture warms my heart, my mommy heart.

For some reason did I collect all (actually missing one pair that our dog ate) of my daughters riding boots.

From when she was three years-old, riding in south Italy, until now, 13 years-old in Germany.

She had a “break” from riding when she broke her femur, in a horse accident. Ollie was only 9 back then, and it was the worst evening in my life.

I asked her a couple of months later, when she got off her wheel chair, if she couldn’t consider starting playing golf!

Well no way! She got back on the horse(s) and started jumping…however, and recently she started playing polo —one kind of hitting a ball.

I am a proud mother!

That’s Amore!

On the Run Towards New Goals

Since 1999 have I been in the Animal Rescue Life of Living.

Oregon I rescued thanks to Tracey Kleber big support. We got four other Rescue Horses that we brought back to feeling alive again. Feeling appreciated and loved.

At the same time they are giving me back so much more. They also not only appreciates me, loves me, making me feel alive again, they teach me to be in the moment.

So, my question is, who rescued who?

Does it matter?

That’s Amore!

You are the Boss of your Feelings

Jealousy is one of the most damaging feelings we can allow us to happen.

As it actually hurts yourself, the same way it hurts the target.

Early on in my children’s life, I started to talk to them about jealousy. About “good” jealousy and “bad” jealousy. Either it could inspire them, or destroy them.

One advice I kept telling them — and it’s a good reminder to all of us– is to practice the (Buddhist) question that asks, “Can you be happy for their (the person you are jealous of) success?

When you are noticing your jealous feelings. Stop! Take a breath, and simply ask this question. Chose kindness.

That’s Amore!

Animals as Coaches

This is my pack!

Every early morning are they gathering together in my office to attend our meditation.

It’s an amazing and powerful feeling, when they also”lower” themselves into a pleasant deep meditation.

Occasionally, I hear one of my Seniors snore peacefully in the background. That is a wonderful heartwarming sound to hear.

After twenty minutes mostly of us do the stretch, then breakfast. What a great way to start the day!

I love my pack of “mini Buddhist” as I have always called them.

That’s Amore!

Helping Hands and Hearts

In a couple of hours am I meeting a woman I admire in many ways.

She is the founder of the nonprofit organization Kainos. A ministry working against human trafficking and sexual exploitation in prostitution.

Their vision is to see freedom for victims of human trafficking and sexuality exploitation with an opportunity for a new life.
