    Thank you so much, Stormy, for posting this video. Everything you said was so true for me and why there are things I won’t do in my life because of that feeling of embarrassment.
    But last night I danced up a storm with a good friend on the streets of my hometown celebrating the music of New Year’s Eve and I realized that I’m 51 years old this year and I’m tired of feeling like I couldn’t “let myself go” or let myself be who I really am for fear of this terrible emotion of embarrassment. And this feeling truly runs over to my life with my horses. I stopped riding last March and my lessons have changed due to my path with the horses and as you said, it’s fine to teach that in my little part of the world but more difficult to stand up and spread a message that I believe in so much but feel like I’m going to be critized for having changed my ways for the sake of the horse, because as you know, we are not the norm. But 2012 has been my “coming out of the box” year and I sense that I will have both feet fimly planted on the ground with no worries about making mistakes or saying the wrong thing or worried about how people see me. I have a father that is suffering with lung cancer and because it has struck so close to home, he has reminded me just how short life is in the universe that I better start living my life and the life that was given to me. I believe I am here to help forge a path for all living beings and I’m so grateful that I can sit down and watch a video and write this blurb of emotions and know that I am on the right course. It’s quite exhilerating! So again, thank you Stormy and I wish you a year full of happiness and well being. Terri

    Thank you so much for bringing this up. As I watch and hear you,a big sigh is releasing, and I immediately know how much embassment can hinder the fullness of everything when not accepted and shared.And maybe when felt and shared it is not embarassment any longer. This asks for an immediate celebration with my horses!
    Much love Bibbi

This saved me in every way a person can be saved. It changed my way of seeing things and interacting with horses. Truly thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for sharing this video.
