Riding sheep is like Living Life

Riding sheep is like life. You get pumped up in the chute for an exciting ride. You come out (sometimes off kilter). Sometimes you can pull yourself back right, and sometimes you fall off and have to look for the next ride. Isn't it that way in life. Some days you wake up and everything goes just right. Your sheep runs in a straight line like a bullet, you stay in the middle and make the buzzer. Then other days you wake up, your head hurts, you get started, you come out tilted to the side you can't correct yourself, and you hit the ground (sometimes hard), eat a little dirt and think "Wow, I'm glad that one's over!"

Riding sheep is difficult. There is tons of pressure to be good. And the competition is tough. Does that sound like your life? It does mine. Sometimes we put a lot of extra stress on ourselves to be the best at what we do, and we forget that it needs to be fun too.

Life can be stressful, but you just have to breathe through those moments.
