Allow me to share one of my goals with you through a picture of a place that calls me… loudly. This is one of my favorite places on the planet that always makes me envision a home of my own nearby here where I will be with horses once again. When I visit this place, to me the feelings and picture of this is quite vivid. I can see the house and fields very clearly. May your goals resonate for you as strongly.
