Today is my birthday, and the universe has given me an amazing gift! I’ve been accepted to the volunteer program at Barking Horse Farm in Costa Rica. I discovered the farm on Instagram this summer and instantly fell in love with the place. Their focus is Natural Horsemanship. I felt drawn to this farm right away and began looking into ways to go there. I received confirmation that I had been accepted to the volunteer program shortly after I returned from Bolivia. There are so many things I’ll miss, including my horse, Snowy, who will be staying here in Virginia, but I know this opportunity will enable me to grow in ways I can’t even predict.
My dream is to one day have a facility of my own where people come to experience healing and growth through yoga and horses. I know volunteering at Barking Horse Farm is a step in the right direction. I feel like I’m finally making a career choice that speaks to my heart. I’ll be at the farm from November through the end of January. If you’d like to help support me in this endeavor, feel free to donate to my GoFundMe campaign. And even if you can’t donate, sharing the campaign to your social networks would also be a big help.
I am so excited to take this next step of my journey and to share it with you through this blog and social media. We all have the power to make this world a better place. We all have unique gifts to share. I encourage you to follow your heart, to listen to it daily. An authentic path is not always an easy one, but it’s so worth it.
