One of my great passions in life is horseback riding, and as I've written before, I recently starting investing in myself again. When our children are babies, the job of Mother is so completely all-encompassing, all-consuming.
However, mine are now 3 and 5, and I decided it was time to do a few things for me (happy wife/mom, happy life, right?). One goal I'm currently working on (besides riding) is to expand my horizons as far as the topics and publications I write for.
Here's a little dream of mine that recently came true:
My first article was accepted for HorseChannel.com, the biggest Horse-related site on the web!
Yep, that's me! During an early re-introductory riding lesson (saddle seat).
I'm very proud not only to be on there as a writer, but to share that particular piece-- it's all about getting back into something as an adult that you might have let slip over the years. Sure, it probably isn't riding that you are hoping to reconnect with as an adult (though it is fun, I assure you!), but perhaps for you it is painting, photography, running, or tennis.
Whatever your goal may be, I hope my piece encourages you to take a risk and give it a shot.
Without further ado, here's the link to my article!
Thank you for all of your support, Frantic Mama readers!
