"Enough of the resume, that is what I did, allow me to share with you who I am…"
I came across a quote that summed up where I found my joy and passion in my life and where I found my desire to live again...
“I love when people that have been through hell walk out of the flames carrying buckets of water for those still consumed by the fire.”
That was it! After so many years, all the pieces suddenly fell into place. All of my personal traumas, all of the trauma I had been exposed to in my career as a firefighter and paramedic were preparing me for one purpose. I had found my way out of my own flames and I now could carry buckets of water for those still being consumed by their own fires.
Little did I know that ever so slowly, one small step at a time, God was preparing me to continue my life of service, supporting others as they claim their right to healing and wholeness. I was being taught that in life I had choices. For so long I was unaware that that those choices existed. I was blindly traveling down a path thinking and often believing that I had no control over the outcome. I believed I was at the mercy of circumstances. Life would happen and I would find a way to survive it, or endure it, or suffer silently with it; afraid to say something for fear of what others might think of me. When happiness or joy found its way to me, it felt so foreign. In hindsight, I realize I had become comfortable being uncomfortable.
I was comfortable in my pain, my grief, my sadness and in my suffering. I had come to the conclusion that this is the way life was going to be. After all, these events did happen and they had shaped who I had become. I had survived, but I certainly was far from thriving.
Little by little I began to see and accept that none of the horrible things I had lived through or had seen were done TO me, rather, they were done FOR me. I found Hope and I began to believe in the miraculous. The right people began to show up in my life at precisely the right time. I came to the realization that I could use all of my life’s lessons to help others that were still being consumed by their own fires. I could carry buckets of water to them.
What if I shared with you that you don’t have to settle in your life? What if I shared with you that though you may believe that your grief, pain and suffering is all there is in life, that is simply not true? Allow me and my horses to support you. Allow my horses and me to help you show up in your life in a different way, free of suffering; to show up in life filled with joy and freedom.
Are you ready to be be vulnerable and courageous? My horses and I are ready to begin an amazing journey with you.
Healing begins with The Heart Of A Horse.
