Delayed Flights and Window Seats

IMG_1493As I sat looking out of my airplane window, a lot of thoughts went through my head.  First, I have this minor birthday coming up which makes me another year older…… Yikes!!  Second, I truly needed to get home and see my baby. I thought about how much I need to really start working harder on my goals and making a name for myself. I work pretty hard now, but you can always work harder. I pondered about how much the Women In Ranching program is so special to me.  Most of all, I thought about how fortunate I am.

I am SO lucky to be able to go and travel and be involved in an industry that I am so passionate about.  I am so fortunate to have parents that are able to make all of these things happen for me.  These small but significant things show the true love a parent has for a child.  There are so many people that are not as fortunate as I am. Some have just been told over and over to just get a job that makes the most money regardless of the fact that they may not even enjoy the job.  Now, do not get me wrong, I know every job has its ups and downs.  However, I have often heard the saying; “Do something you enjoy and you will never work a day in your life.”

IMG_1472This past year has been an amazing ride and one where I became more and more involved in an industry that I love.  I went from being just a member in a collegiate organization to the Vice President of Texas CattleWomen. From there I am now privileged to serve on the Board of Directors for American National CattleWomen. As time has passed, I have gotten to meet more and more people who are just as passionate about the Cattle Industry as I am.

Thankfully, I now find that the things I worried and stressed about do not seem as important anymore.  I know that I have finally found a place where I fit, regardless of the fact that my background may be quite different than a lot of other people in the industry.  If you have the passion, anything is possible.  From here on out, it is only UP!  I have found my true happiness and I am holding on to it dearly.

As always spread some love, we could all use a little more love!
