Inspired by Life

Les and I were fortunate to make it to a concert Sunday night of one of our favorite bands, Southern Culture on the Skids, when they played a small, local venue.

The first thing that surprised me was how they had aged – I mean, I never do…so how come the people around me always seem to get older? The second thing was how much fun they seemed to be having on stage.

I had to look them up (yes, during the concert) to see how old they were to be rocking like they were. Their ages seem to be closely guarded secrets, but I found out they have been playing and performing together for over 30 years! That made me think – here they are in their 50’s to 60’s, performing and enjoying themselves as if they were in their 20’s and 30’s. They played two of my all-time favorite songs, House of Bamboo and Banana Puddin, and rocked out for a solid 90 minutes.

So, again during the concert, I had an epiphany…why am I wasting my life doing anything that makes me less than happy? Life really is too short! For the next few weeks, I’m going to take another look at what I REALLY want out of life. Don’t worry – I’ll share it with you!

In the meantime, another shameless plug – Within Emerald Forests is released today! Get it now – get it here!

About Heather Hamel

Growing up with horses is a little girls dream come true. Heather’s dream in life was to be a horse trainer - how dreams change - sort of! She moved to the wonderfully historic town of St. Augustine, Florida and was a historic tour guide and a ghost story teller while putting herself through college to become a special education teacher. After graduating, she felt the pull of horses in her life again. That's when she met Kobi! She learned quickly that when you own horses you become a part time vet, part time nutritionist, and full time equestrian. She wouldn't change a thing! In addition to being completely obsessed with her herd, she still teaches and tutors students with learning disabilities, and more specifically, dyslexia.
