I’ve had the great privilege of working in magazines and newspapers, both as a reporter and editor, for more than three decades, but still consider myself a beginner.
At writing. With horses. With life.
I believe in people and I believe in learning.
I believe that life is a winding road and we all regularly get off course. Maybe we were handed the wrong map or inaccurate directions. And didn’t ask the right questions along the way.
I believe we all have an innate compass that’s supremely powerful when we tap into it. But we live in a culture that doesn’t encourage us to dial into our own knowing. We’re handed a template and system of measurement that bookends us into average. And if we fall above or below the mid-line, we’re offline. We doubt ourselves.
I believe that every being we encounter—two legged and otherwise—shows up as a teacher for us because in reality, we’re all students. Students of life.
I believe we’re all connected—and when we choose to see those connections, our reverence grows. Our consciousness increases; we wake up. And when we’re aware, we treat each other differently.
I’m fascinated by other ways of knowing and how those other ways integrate in our lives.
I’m curious about how people process past and current experiences and how those experiences shade future experiences.
I’m curious about people’s personal narratives (remember, I’ve been a writer a long time.)
Most of all, I believe in potential.
I believe that everything changes when we work with our own perceptions. There are many things in this world we cannot change; but we can always change our thinking.
