Learning to hold the reigns

As I watched my daughter at equine therapy yesterday as she worked on holding the reigns it made me think about how relatable to life that is. She held on with one hand while still clutching the saddle horn with the other. No doubt this increased her comfort level for the time being, and eventually she'll be grasping onto the reigns with both hands. Learning to loosen our grip on what we've become accustomed to can be overwhelming. Trusting in a new way means pushing fear aside and grabbing faith into a bear hug. Changes are necessary for growth. We hear this time and again, but are we actually paying attention? Learn to hold the reigns of your life like you mean it..  with confidence in yourself. You can do it!
