It's Your Choice! 

Fear is really scary.  We all get scared.

But did you know that fear is also all in your head? It's not real, any more than nightmares or scary monsters. 

We all get to decide -  whether we want to be afraid or be brave.

But sometimes it's hard to be brave.  Like when our life is changing.  I was brave - until the scary people came and broke up my family.  After that, I was really scared. I was afraid of everyone and everything. And you know what, I think I had a right to be afraid... then. 

But I got stuck in fear.  I wouldn't even try to find anything good about my new life. Instead, I fought everyone who came around me. I refused offers of help and just kept striking back every chance I got. 

But then I learned that I have a choice - to be afraid, or to be brave. 

My life did change.  But that's how life is sometimes. Things change. 

Even though my change was scary - I  found happy people who were nice to me, who wanted to love me.  I found a  happy life - after I let go of the fear and anger - after I decided to be brave.

I took a deep breath and trusted my new life. And you know what?  Life got better!

Here's my latest big step of courage.  Mommy, Shadow and I  are hanging out with all these BIG horses. They're huge.  They jump these really tall fences.  Mommy wanted me to try a little one.  It looked weird and I wasn't too sure about it.  But I stepped up (or over) and boy did I have fun!

We All have a choice. 

You can choose to be afraid and be angry. You can dig your hooves into the ground and refuse to accept whatever is changing around you. But you won't find your happy life that way.

When we're stuck in fear -  we miss a lot of good things.

  • We push away people who want to be our friends and help us,
  • We miss out on the chance to try new things
  • We keep ourselves unhappy - even if there are good things happening all around us.

When we choose to be brave we get the chance to experience new things,  meet new people and learn new things.

And that's what's so fun about life.

    Be brave sometimes really hard, because everyone is afraid of something! Here we are powerless, perhaps there is no such person who was not afraid of anything!

    Horse racing has always been a pretty interesting part of the whole sport! Interesting to see how people are managed with their animals, especially at speed!

    Domesticated horses may face greater mental challenges than wild horses, because they live in artificial environments that prevent instinctive behavior whilst also learning tasks that are not natural.
