Dear Cowgirl,

Let me ask you something.

If you were not terrified of the unknown right now—where would you go? What would you do?

Now, I know you’re going to say, “But my financial situation isn’t great,” or, “I just can’t find the time right now,” or, “My family thinks thus and such.”

Dear cowgirl, let me ask you again. If you could go anywhere, do anything, be anyone…what would it be?

Where would you go?

Who would you be?

See, I have had those excuses, I know them all.

I have been on the edge where you now stand, wishing to take that leap of faith and to jump as far and as high as you can… but fearing the landing.

Dear cowgirl, I will let you in on a little secret. You will land on your feet.

Your two strong legs will hold you up. Your strong arms will make things happen.

Your smart head on your shoulders will find a way.

You will NEVER ever succeed if you do not jump. The fear of failing is the only failure there is.

Dear cowgirl. Take the leap of faith, close your eyes. Throw yourself into the dream that maybe others cannot understand.

But guess what? They don’t need to understand. Because this is YOUR dream.

Jump, dear cowgirl, leap into that fear and the unknown, and I will meet you when you land—feet first—into the dream you have always wanted.

Trust me, I’m already here.
