I started this blog a few years ago, to capture stories with images, and while I did that for a while, I quickly let myself, my life, and my problems get in my way. Perhaps I should say that I allowed every barrier possible to get in my way, maybe to even provide me with excuses. The irony of me starting the blog with this shoot, and it all coming full circle is that I was reminded today, what I felt that day, and how those horses would teach me then, and now.
A passage in your story, is not the complete story. What happens to you, how you suffer, the atrocities others inflict on you, that isn’t necessarily about you. It very well may be about others, and part of their story, this often leaves us feeling shocked, confused, afraid…paralyzed. Rachel, Zack and their staff at Bella Run Equine can testify to the fact, that if there is rehab of multiple methods applied, success, overcome, and life can not only go on, it can be better than you imagined, better than before.
We may lose our tails, we may have doubt, we may not trust others, but through consistency, we can find our footing, we can learn, grow and embrace our new life. Perhaps we will even feel renewed, rejuvenated, and reinvigorated. Maybe our spirits are like those of the equine, indomitable.
Life truly is made so much better by the people you surround yourself with, especially when those people see you in all your weakness, your strength, your potential, your realness, your struggles, your triumphs, and simply you living life everyday.
So, are you going to give up? Or are you going to be open to learning something new? Will you trust people when the opportunity to do so comes up? Will you trust yourself enough to realize that nothing is behind you, but everything is in front of you? It is time for me to get back to what I started long ago, but to also move forward with a different mind space, a different knowledge and experience. Just like these horses, I trust the best is yet to come.
I look at these photos, and I hold them close to my heart. Rachel, Zack, Bella Run Equine, and all of these horses have something to teach us, are you willing to learn? Please find more information about these fine people, their farm, and these beautiful animals at:
And tell Rachel I said Hi!
