Ride 'em like you stole 'em



I saw this saying today at the local Trade Days:



Ride 'em like you stole 'em.



I fell in love immediately.

To me, it means, approach things with passion, give it your all.

Then I started to think.
What do I approach with passion??
What do I give my all to?


I have a lot of potential passion stored up inside of me.
I can feel it bubbling and swirling and brewing inside.


It's going to explode like a geyser when I find my calling.

I'm passionate about my children. about writing. about blogging.

But, I don't put enough time into writing like I should.
Like I want.

I need to make myself...

I'm alone right now.
My husband and kids are spending Spring Break with family in Austin.

Well, ok, not completely alone. I have a fierce attack dog with me.





and my elderly father.



I'm spending lots of time introspecting...

What?! You are "alone" in your house? With no boys to take care of? Wow. Has that ever happened before? I think that you need to stop the introspection - and start the ride 'em like you stole 'em part! :-)
