Closer With Every Hoof Beat Blog Archive on May 18, 2009, 7:55

Every hoof beat, every step, brings you closer to your destination.

This was something I learned when my horse was still alive. After long trail rides, when we both would grew tired, and all I wanted to do was gallop home. I learned patience. Every hoof beat brought us closer to our destination. I learned to enjoy those times with my horse. Sometimes slowing down to look at things is all that you need to clear your head. Pursuing your destinations, pursuing your dreams, can get wearying. You grow tired. You wish you were there already.
