Jamie Ridler over at Jamie Ridler Studios asks today: How do you wish to Sparkle?
WELL. That is a loaded question, Ms. Jamie.
I wish so many things to help me to sparkle. SO SO many things. Feelings, really.
I wish to sparkle by both losing weight, and loving my body more - accepting what I can't change all the while, fighting like hell to change it anyhow.
I wish to sparkle by being the most incredible, supportive mother to my kids that they need me to be.
I wish to sparkle by supporting my husband in his dream to go into law enforcement, though it scares the tar out of me.
And, for my self .... I wish to sparkle by having more time to myself this year to do what makes my heart sing the best.
I sparkle when I ride. I sparkle when my heart beats in tune with my mare's, as I give her free rein and total trust to run with me as her precious cargo, guiding her gently without force, pain or fear.
I sparkle when we fly together, when we rest together, and when we unwind together.
And I wish for a means for the finances so that I can share that sparkle with others by teaching them about my most kindred animals. Teaching others to fly on horseback, to trust their mounts, and to dance with their horses.
That's how I wish to sparkle.
