I wanted to share this quote that one of our summer '09 cowgirl yoginis-to-be sent me, from a place called the Cowgirl Cafe somewhere in CA (there must be one here in Montana too):
Cowgirl is an attitude, really. A pioneer spirit, a special American brand of courage. The cowgirl faces life head on, lives by her own lights, and makes no excuses. Cowgirls take a stand. They speak up. They defend the things they hold dear. A Cowgirl might be a rancher, or a barrel racer, or a bull rider, or an actress, but she's just as likely to be a checker at a local grocery store, a full-time mother, a banker or an attorney, an astronaut.
An astronaut...? OK sorry, I had to wonder about that one, but otherwise love it. I've needed to uncover my inner cowgirl this week as I've felt challenged on many fronts. This process was helped by some horse time on Tuesday, followed by more tomorrow - getting back in the saddle and reconnecting with the herd is soul soothing. Here's one of those dreamy shots of horses, a few from our Cowgirl Yoga herd. Enjoy, and I encourage you to find ways to let your inner cowgirl express herself.
