“Courage is being scared to death… and saddling up anyway.” ~ John Wayne
I love this quote. I can almost hear John Wayne delivering it in his distinctive drawl.
Let’s remember that courage is “saddling up anyway” when we’re just a little scared too and when we don’t know if we have enough experience to stay in the saddle and in many other scenarios.
So whether we’re feeling terrified, timid, troubled, touchy, tired or terrific, let’s saddle up and ride into this day as best we can.
Walk, trot, canter, gallop or ride like the wind. Every gait is good.
May you be spurred on and ride through the day with no sweat, using courage to be truly you.

Hold your horses
Frisky as a colt

Left at the gate
Back in the saddle
Jumpin’ in the saddle
