Life is like riding a bull....

What?

One minute you're happy. Your smile is sincere and deep down you are content. No need to hold on...

Then you are challenged, but you're still happy and you can dealing with sudden movement and changes....

Other days you are smiling, but you are not happy. Your smile covers the fear of falling.

Some days you have to find that strength yet you have no idea how...

One those harder days you just hold on for dear life!

If you are lucky, you'll have a friend there to help. Knowing they can only provide you with comforting words and a shoulder to cry on....somehow their words remind you that you really can do it or it is o.k. to fall. Friends are their to help you brush the dirt off your knees.

At the end of the day, week, month, year...you stayed on this crazy ride. You didn't get bucked off or thrown on the ground so hard that you couldn't get up.... You relied on friends and family. You used your own strength.... You did it.




( No bones were broken in order to capture these photos. These ladies are not trained professionals and advise you to think twice before getting on a mechanical bull.) Pictures taken on "the girls weekend" two weeks ago. I heart my crazy friends.

I'm so glad you had a good time with your friends, and that you ♥ them! :)

I will, however, NOT comment on what that stick you all are holding onto looks like. *ahem*
