“Why do you recommend everyone to live their dreams?”
“It’s who you are. I believe you don’t want to make concessions in your life and sacrifice your dream. It makes me happy, it will make you happy. Step out of your comfort zone, do what you have to do to get your dream to come true.” -Dale Lowell
Dale Lowell grew up on a farm in Gorham, Maine. From the moment she could talk and walk, Dale dreamed of having horses. After she learned how to read, all she cared to read about were horses. From reading, drawing and dreaming about them at age 6, it was clear to her Dad this passion was real. One day, Dale was coming home from elementary school and her father surprised her with a pony at her bus stop. Ever since then Dale has always had a horse in her life. She shared how horse’s have a power, strength, quietness and beauty that gives her an escape of happiness during any chapter of her life.
Dale lead a horse 4-H group for 18 years and was given an Outstanding Citizen award for her leadership. She said how her passion for horses has connected her with her closest friends and has created an intimate connection with her neighbors as well. “It is easier to get to know people on a horse. You wouldn’t drive your car into someone’s yard, but if you go by on a horse, people stop and talk. You get to know the neighborhood in a different way, you are grounded through the horse.”
Dale shared even though horse back riding is one of the most dangerous hobbies in the world, she will ride until she dies because she would not trade it for anything. Whenever she travels she makes sure to ride a horse whether she is in Iceland, Ireland or Arizona. Dale also loves to travel and having a farm could hinder that but not for Dale. She has always found reliable people to watch over the animals. Words from the wise on how to find the perfect balance of having two passions…”if I want something, I go after it!”-Dale Lowell. If your passion is strong enough, there is an abundance of motivation, ready to respond and make things happen.
Some people believe you are born with a destiny or you create your own destiny… or is it both? Are we drawn to our predetermined destiny, that propels us to walk in that direction and live our dreams? Well that is for you to decide. Dale was born with a passion for horses and has enjoyed them her whole life because she has stayed true to her heart. From her commitment and dedication to live her dreams, she felt like karma brought her the perfect log cabin to retire in, with a barn of course to compliment her ideal lifestyle.
“You are drawn to something and you don’t even know why and it turns out to be perfect for you.” -Dale Lowell
