I’ve been accused of living on Fantasy Island with rose-coloured glasses on, but I don’t care because I believe! – Diana Schwenk

An original quote

Well a response actually to this must-read post by newsofthetimes.

I’ve always been an optimist.

I can’t help it.

It’s who I am.

When I was a little girl I fell in love with horses

and pictured riding a thousand times.

I knew I could

I believed I could

I was born to ride.

So when I was about 10 I climbed a farmer’s fence.

I approached a mare and whispered my dream to her.

I grabbed her mane and pulled myself onto her back.

My legs wrapped taut around her sides, her mane twisted up in my hand;

I rode her at a gallop through the field.

She and I were one.  I had never felt so alive!

I don’t try to be optimistic. I just am.

I look for good and I find it.

I believe in community where each person adds value.

I’ve pictured it a thousand times,

and I will see it – I was born to live in it.


What do you JUST KNOW?
