An inspiring story of Robyn Holt, a life time of achievements and a happy family – that came from confidence and perseverance.

There are many success stories of powerful women who are committed to their work and their family out there, and I still find them encouraging because everyone’s life and story is a bit different.

I found this article about Robyn Holt enormously encouraging. This is a woman who has worked in the notoriously competitive magazine and fashion industries; met, married and stayed with a man working in movies; and made compromises, smart steps and gutsy moves to get her dream jobs.

From the article:

“Holt wishes that, when she was 30, she had known that confidence in one’s instincts can lead to great things. “The one thing that has kept me going through all the difficult times and, yes, there have been many, is my sense of humour, not taking myself too seriously and having a great family,” she says. “And, finally, an unending curiosity.”

The full article is here, and it’s a great reminder of the many turns life can take, and how to balance work, family and passions.

I haven’t been here in a while as the writing has been on hold. But I was reminded today that there are things in our life that light us up. That might take us out of our comfort zone but, once you sit with it, bring you both joy and a sense of “I can do this” achievement. These moments are such a gift. So I’m curious, what’s your special thing that lights you up?

Despite (or in spit of) my professional career, these moments for me normally involve my horses. I’ll never be an equestrian Olympian, but I take great pleasure in all the lessons my horses teach me. They remind me that it’s a team effort, we’re in it together, and that if I’m prepared to give a little bit more, they will too. That’s true whether we’re on the ground taking care of their feet, or grooming, or when I’m atop riding as one. Two hearts one team.
It’s hard to describe the adrenaline and joy they bring to my life. But I’d love to know, what lights you up??

And so, maybe time does change some things. Or women do.

This is what the future looks like, right here. Calling out the BS for what it is. Good luck to the young people of the United States of America in being forth this change.
