Feeling Different

Feeling Different

November 9, 2021
Do you ever have those days where you feel different than your friends or family? Maybe you feel like an outsider because you rodeo, play a different kind of music, ride dirt bikes or do something a little different. In all ways, we always feel a little different at some point in time or another, but as Dr. Seuss said, "𝙬𝙝𝙮 𝙛𝙞𝙩 𝙞𝙣, 𝙬𝙝𝙚𝙣 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙬𝙚𝙧𝙚 𝙗𝙤𝙧𝙣 𝙩𝙤 𝓢𝓣𝓐𝓝𝓓 𝓞𝓤𝓣??
 
During this RodeoKids.com Podcast, our host, Camarie Widmer, shares her story of how she overcomes those feelings and how she's learned to embrace being different!

I Never Thought…

I Never Thought…

September 24, 2021

I never thought I’d be the person to check out photos of the hotel fitness center before I booked it, but here we are! Gyms, people, challenges and some parts of life have always intimidated me, but I’ve learned over time that if something intimates you, that probably means you need to take it head on.

I've finally learned how many doors open to life, opportunity and freedom once I quit standing in my own way by letting other people's thoughts keep me from playing big. Now, my dreams are bigger than my fears! Find out the rest of the story on this RodeoKids.com Podcast!
