We are fast approaching the last quarter of 2017. Trick-or-Treaters will soon be on our doorsteps only to be replaced by a big turkey dinner a few weeks later and then Santa Claus will roll into town. The next thing you know you will be putting the empty champagne bottles in the trash and 2018 will kick 2017 to the curb. I don’t know about you, but the more mature I get, (aka getting older) the faster time seems to be flying by. And, I have come to appreciate that I want to chase only the things that make my heart dance. One way I am able to do this is by planning my days, weeks, and months with mindful attention to my desire to continue to create and live a life that I love. I am also a visual person who likes to organize myself with a paper planner versus using my cell phone.

The introductory line of the article said, “Amberley Snyder is a badass barrel racer who is also paralyzed from the waist down.” As I continued to read the article I was inspired by Amberley’s story of triumph over tragedy and I liked her spunky attitude about getting back in the saddle after a life-changing truck accident.
The Badass Warrior Podcast series was high on my list of things to create and Amberley’s story put that task into overdrive. A little over a year later I was thrilled to sit down with Amberley and learn more about her, her family, and what she felt made her a badass. You will be inspired by her story, so find a comfortable spot and sit down and listen to this young woman talk about her life and love of horses. And, when you think you are having a bad day, listen to this podcast again.
