Who am I? That is the question. Does anyone ever really know the answer? Aren’t we all changing every second we’re alive? Was I the same person I was ten years ago, twenty years ago? Well, I hope not. I have grown and changed over time, sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse, but I am always growing and changing.
To answer this question, I may have to look through others’ eyes to see myself as they see me. I am a wife, a mother, a friend, a daughter, an aunt, an entrepreneur, a student, a teacher, an equestrian, a planner, a go-getter, a leader, a serious soul, a playful soul, and always a dreamer.
Maybe the better question is who would I like to be? I would like to be a person who is recognized and applauded for their knowledge and determination, a person who takes dreams and turns them into reality, a person who inspires others to accomplish their best, a person who is looked up to by their children, a person whom others look to for answers, and a person who is appreciated for their efforts.
I am a person who would like to be involved in the equine industry in Alabama in such a way that fundamentally changes the perception of it. It’s already happening. Have you heard about it? I am a person who looked status quo in the face and couldn’t remain satisfied. I am a person who saw an opportunity to affect change for the betterment of the entire equine industry in my state. I am a person working daily to make my dreams and the dreams of others come true.
To say that I am simply the OWNER of a business or the EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR of an equine association does nothing to explain who I am. It only tells you my titles. To know who I am is to see the results of my actions and the purpose of my resolve. Who am I? Watch me grow, then you will know.
