Dear Cowgirl, The unknown is terrifying.


Change is inevitable, and the future is never known – no matter how much we like to think we are in control.


I get it, you’re scared. You think maybe he was “the one”, maybe you’ll never get a job as good as the last one, and people might laugh at you if you chase that crazy dream. You worry that you won’t be able to make that truck payment and your in-laws secretly dislike your green bean casserole (which may be the biggest worry of all).  


You think you might fail, that you might burn out and get tired. 


Guess what?


You might fail. 

In fact, you probably will. 

You will burn out, it’s inevitable. 

And you will get tired, anyone who says they don’t get tired is lying.


But you know what will also happen?


You will get stronger. 

You will work harder. 

You will stay dedicated for longer. 

You will bounce back faster.

You will love smarter.

You will learn faster.

You will not stay down for long. 


Dear Cowgirl, you will fall, you will fail and one day you will flourish. 


Get ahold, stand up and don’t take no for an answer. 


You’ve got this.
