For the past several decades, has your life been more about taking care of others than taking care of yourself while your dreams have gathered dust on long forgotten shelves?
Are you at that point in life when you've begun to wonder whether you'll ever find the courage to do all the things you wanted to do someday?
Offering horses as both metaphor and solution to the natural malaise that often rears its head just about the time we blow out that "midlife" birthday candle, this is the book that will help you ask (and answer), "What about my dreams?" and "Is it my turn yet?" and "If not now, when?" and best of all, "If now, how?"
Melinda Folse speaks to those women whose hearts yearn for reconnection at a time when life seems to have run its own course and childhood dreams of playing with horses are only a vague memory. She not only helps you rekindle the possibility of bringing a little equine energy into your life, she also takes you on a gentle journey of small steps to help your childhood passion become a reality.
