Harley The Horse!
As I road a bike for five hours today, three of those hours on the beach, I couldn’t help but realize the importance of the destination was enjoying the journey! The journey truly is living life to its fullest and being present to your surroundings.
I stopped, took pictures, enjoyed the beauty of my day, the sights, the sounds, the people…
I rode with others and as they had a destination in mind all I could think about was being present to the journey in front of me…
By doing so I saw so many incredible sights, there were dolphins, turtles, a beached stingray, to name a few and I met a horse named Harley….
As we came off the beach into a town there was a horse farm… And a beautiful Clydesdale… A women was feeding him carrots outside the fence. My riding companions kept riding but I had to stop (again). Even Harley had a story…
To me he was a beautiful Clydesdale, to Budweiser he was a reject, his looks, his markings were not good enough to be a Budweiser Clydesdale horse… So Harley was put out to pasture in South Carolina on this horse farm.
And I wondered….
A stunning Clydesdale horse “not good enough” in the eyes of it’s owner… Yet to the women who came daily to feed him carrots and to myself he was a beautiful stunning horse.
Like people, someone may “think” we are not good enough, but the truth is we are a treasure to others….
In awe of The Journey!
