My alarm seemed to go off very early this morning so I hit snooze. Shortly there after my phone rang. Turns out my horses decided that today would be the perfect morning to escape their field and storm around the countryside.
As I hurried out to collect them it occurred to me that whenever I spend time with my horses I learn something new about myself. Today, it was the knowledge that when I move with purpose, I move very easily. In this particular case I had to run down the horses before they disappeared over the horizon! I bounded over wood fences, dove under barbed-wire fences and sprinted across fields. All the skills I practice in the park, and all the time I spend playing on the floor with my son has had the intended effect. When I need a skill in the moment my body is prepared, fluid and capable. Even more so then I sometimes realize.
When I finally caught up with my very winded herd, they looked at me and seemed to say “See! You CAN run like the wind!” This morning’s adventure made me so happy, it energized my day and gave me a new perspective on my skills and abilities. I so love my herd for that!
