Information Intake

What You Read and Listen To Matters

One of the most critical areas of tidying up that will help us mentally, physically and spiritually is our information intake. With endless access to digital gadgets, it is easy to fall into the information jungle. The books that we read, the podcasts that we listen to, and the websites we visit have an impact on our lives. If you find yourself trolling Facebook for hours a day or plopping down on the couch each night and mindlessly watching TV until you go to bed, it is most definitely time for some information intake clean-up. I am going to list what I have come to use as my top podcasts and books in 2018 for self-enrichment. The next time you pick up your phone listen to one of these instead of wasting time in the addictive digital jungle.

The Badass Soul-Seeking Warrior Podcast Series, Episode 1: Amberley Snyder

I read about Amberley Snyder in Cowgirl Magazine in April of 2016.  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.
