Things Learned from a Rodeo Bull Fighter

I recently lost my dad in a tragic accident ~ from the moment I found my dad on our ranch my life changed instantly. I was always one to worry about everything – absolutely everything. After going through this  I realized first hand that God is in charge and he can give and can take away at a moments notice. I have heard this numerous times but until you experience it, the kind that is right in your face you don't actually realize it  I vowed to myself that through this tragedy I would find good. And I did. I just did not realize it would be so very soon nor expected. I re-learned a lot of things that I always knew however needed to be reminded of. For  I am grateful for a posse of young men I had the pleasure of being with for a few days this past week. They are bullfighters, they not only save the lives of those riding bulls keeping them out of harms way they have the ability to save others too with their attitudes on life.

These are the 10 things I re-learned from a cowboy rodeo bullfighter
  1. the Lord God is first and foremost
  2. be true to who you are
  3. friendships are the cornerstone of life
  4. be a good sport always in winning and in defeat
  5. eat healthy
  6. work out  each and every day
  7. commitment to your vision
  8. passion for what you believe in
  9. try – the deep in your tummy kind to be your best
  10. self confidence at all times even when you feel broken

I found this quote today and felt it so very appropriate for what I am feeling ~

"At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us."                           - Albert Schweitzer

From the bottom of my heart I thank each one of you for re-educating  me what life is truly all about ~ for I don't even think you know the impact you made upon me. God Bless each of you , may you be protected each and every step of your journey.
