Why Can't You?
Ahh I love big strong horses! I think that explains a lot about me in many ways.
It is how they are grounded solid, their strength, and you can see the confidence that they know who they are and no one can tell them differently or would dare mess with them. I think I've lost a bit of that since college but I think that comes from my recent injuries the last couple of years...they tend to make one feel weaker, especially when you can't do for yourself. The great thing is one can still work on it each day & progress.
"One of the greatest discoveries a man makes, one of his great
surprises, is to find he can do what he was afraid he couldn't do."
~ Henry Ford
Isn't this sooo true! I don't know how many students of mine think they can't do something & they haven't even tried. I remember even as a young kid I would think "Well, tell me one logical reason they can do or have this & I can't" There never was one. I tell my students the same thing now.
What have you been afraid you can not do or have?
