One of the newest member’s of the Elase family tackles a topic we all can relate to: finding your passion. 

I think one of the most important things we can do in life is finding something to be passionate about. The world is full of possibilities and when we put our hearts into something that we love, we create a world of happiness.

There are so many ways to spend our time, with time being our most valuable gift, it is very important that we take into account how we spend it.

People often misconstrue time spent on self-growth as a selfish act, but to truly contribute the best that you have to this world, you have to create a life of happiness for yourself.

My passion is my horses. I spend a large amount of time working with them, and building a partnership to be a competitive barrel racer. Being a competitor takes so much time and work to be physically and mentally prepared. When racing through the barrel pattern as fast as you can, your timing with your horse is everything; focusing on your muscle memory to be in tune with your partner. Not only is it physically demanding but it is mentally challenging. Having a beautiful run in the arena and being a winner, displays you are the strongest in talent and mental toughness combined. I love to learn and my horses teach me something new every day.  It is something I love and it is something that makes me happy.

I challenge you to find something that makes you happy. Make it a point to spend time with your passion. Let it be your serenity and help you create peace within yourself. In turn you will be happy and therefore, you will offer the best you have to the world around you.

“If you give the world the best you have, the best will come back to you.”
