They say every journey starts with a single step. My journey towards this point started in 2015 and I've definitely come a long way since then. Looking back on the last 11 months of 2017, there have been some major changes in my life. Again. I've come to realise that I actually want people to know about the road I've been following so far, to read about the things I've been through, the experiences that have helped me to grow into the person I have become. Because I am proud of the things I've accomplished - and excited about the plans I have for the future - but it's been anything but easy. But such is life.
By being able to share my story, I want to show you there's truth to such clichés as 'Failure is only failure when you give up' and 'Choosing between a rock and a hard place'. But even more, I wish to reach those who might find themselves stuck; or those who wish to change their life for the better but don't know how to go about it. Because I did those things. And yes, it's been hard, but it's been worth the struggle. And it still is, every single day.
So... Starting today, I will start sharing my journey from an amateur horsegirl with a boring 9-5 job to a fulltime equine massage therapist. I am not wealthy or spending my days doing nothing but sip cocktails on the beach, but I am proud to say that I am truly happy to be doing something I absolutely love. "Do what you love and you'll never have to work a day in your life." Another cliché that is definitely true!
Aside from that, I will also share my knowledge and experiences about everything horse health related (feeding, training, behaviour, etc.); and I will introduce to you the best schoolmasters I could have wished for : my little horse team - which you have probably seen plenty on my Instagram account. They have taught me quite a few tricks - not only the riding sort - and will continue to on a daily basis. I do admire their patience – every single day.
So if you care to get to know me a little, follow this blog! New posts will be announced on my Insta-account; and of course, personal thoughts and comments are encouraged!
