make your next bold move
what’s the next thing you’re gonna need to prove
to yourselfAni DiFranco
I like bold moves. Not to proof anything, but to keep moving. I believe moving is an essential part of life. It keeps life interesting. Stepping out of the comfort zone requires courage and confidence, and that builds courage and confidence. I learn something about myself, my limits, my capabilities.
Five months ago I applied for a position as a dog musher. I never had a dog in my life before, but I liked the idea to glide through a winter landscape pulled by a team of Alaskan huskies. I had no idea what it takes to run a sled dog team.
Now I do.
It is a lot of work to take care of the dogs. Running with the dogs is truly amazing. And the most unexpected aspect of this adventure was the warm feeling that these dogs gave me, greeting me in the morning with wagging tails and dog kisses. It will be hard to leave them in a few weeks, although I know they will be in good hands and enjoy their deserved summer vacation.
What is my next bold move? Stay tuned.
