Maybe you wanted a certain toy, car, house, or the coolest game of all. For me, it was a horse. I had fantasies of having a horse on my front yard on Christmas morning. I never got the horse on the front lawn but the desire for running free without boundaries never left me.

Years have passed and I have everything I need to live a comfortable life and for that I am grateful. My desires have shifted. I still want that wild feeling of running without boundaries but now I can come close to the feeling by using my imagination. I can create that feeling through sinking into my body while exercising , doing yoga, or meditating. My imagination is my most important survival tool. It rarely fails me.

Tonight, I am imagining blind people everywhere sinking into their bodies and using their own imaginations to run free, to feel strong, confident, and wild while running in place in their own home. I want more than anything to create more accessible choices for people so they can access that feeling of no boundaries. I want that feeling for all of us.

This past year I have poured my heart, soul, and resources into creating choices for all of us. I don’t want to stop. The desire to create has got me in its grip. This is important work and to put it simply and honestly, I need your help to spread the word that health choices now exists. I am hitting the start up business wall and I need your help.

We must get strong, stay strong, and support each other. I am asking you to use your imagination to help get these workouts into the hands of the people who need them most.

Let’s manifest fitness choices together.

  1. I have everything I need in my life…I am just now starting to come to grips with the possibilities that were always there but I was too distracted to acknowledge them. I would like to help others realize and act on their passion.

    1. One of my childhood friends was a full blown animal lover, said that when she grew up she was going to be a vet. Well anyway, she had a horse as she competed in shows and all I could focus on the couple of times I went with her to watch the show, was riding her horse. The part where we had to prepare the horse was time-consuming hard work but my friend loved it. And indeed she did grow to become a vet and still still is. It’s been some years since I’ve last ridden but there is nothing quite like that feeling.

      1. You’re right. There’s nothing quite like it. Our horses have long since died of old age but recently we did a ride along the beach on hired horses. We took a bunch of children for my grand daughter’s sixth birthday. It was the best time.
