We get these dreams, not just passing fancies, but dreams that come from our soul, stirring up the dust and cobwebs, breaking forth from the place that matters.

Then something happens and we get discouraged. Life happens and we get distracted.

Earlier this week, during winter break we showed our kids the movie Seabisquit. You know the story of the discouraged boxer turned jockey meets disrespected, forgotten horse turned record breaker.

The horse trainer in the movie played by Chris Cooper, offers wisdom to Tobey Maguire’s jockey character, “Don’t throw your whole life away, just ‘cause your banged up a little.”

Thrown off a horse, turned away, discouraged or distracted, forgotten or temporarily off track by the curve balls of life, doesn’t mean we have to bury our dreams. We just have to get back up on the horse, try again and give it our all. Heart first.
