back on the horse

back on the horse

have you ever been horseback riding?  I went once as a kid.  At a horse ranch.  I think it took 2 people to hoist me up there on top of that H.U.G,E beast.  In truth…it was probably a tired old horse, overeating itself on apples at the farm.  But I might have been 13 or 14 years old….so I felt like I was mounted 2 miles off the earth up on the back of that big stallion.  If…I…fell… off…of…that…thing……….would I have the courage to get back on?


Sitting here on my couch, 32 years later…I realize that the answer is “Of Course”!  I mean, what other choice do we have?  I mean, I’m not going to lie down and eat myself into oblivion in bed with Dunkin Donut wrappers around me.

So…..hoist away friends.  Back on the horse I go.

Ciao for now……Diane

  1. You have made the only choice that makes sense, Diane. Great work, getting back on that horse. I applaud your honesty and courage. Nobody said this was going to be easy. You have already shown that you can handle tough. YOU RAN A MARATHON!!! You said in your blog what I have felt since I began this journey. I cannot stop this journey. Doing what I had been doing had allowed my health to decline. I owe it to myself and, to my family, to care for this body that houses my soul. You, and I, have made the only choice that makes sense!

    • you are a lovely friend Phyllis. Your words mean so much. My soul is lifted tonight. thank you. giddy-up!! Diane
