#69 Learning is Like a Snow Globe

Dec 01, 2022

The image of a snow globe has been on my mind lately. It is the perfect representation of my learning journey over the past couple of years. Maybe you’ll relate to this too.

Sometimes it can feel like all we’ve known has been shaken up and is swirling around without a place to land. But then, if we give it time, the pieces start to fall into place, a new understanding develops and there’s a peace- until the next shake up 😆

In the weeks ahead, I’ll be sharing some of the pieces that have fallen into place for me recently. They all center around transitions and what they can reveal. But it’s so much more than just asking for a transition- it’s an opportunity to deepen our understanding of our horses and ourselves.

There are 5 different realizations I’ll share stretching from something I learned from Nate Bowers a decade ago all the way to the recent clinic I took with Harry Whitney. With nuggets from John and Kathy Baar, Linda Parelli and Charley Snell in between.

Originally, I was going to write about all 5 in one blog post… the snow started swirling with where to start and how to fit it all in. It started to look like a LONNNNGGGG post.

I gave it a few minutes to let the snowflakes settle around the question, “what would be the best way to navigate this?” The flakes settled and the answer came- SMALL posts!! 5 of them.

Small tidbits might be the perfect fit for you as well. Especially during the time-stretched holidays!

So… stay tuned for the first installment next week titled “The Truth is in the Transitions”. A decade old lesson from Nate Bowers that is meaning more and more to me as the days pass.

See you next week!
