Like cowboys, being a cowgirl is a way of life. As a personality trait, a cowgirl is said to be very polite, assertive when needed, confident, industrious and ready to take on any task and challenge. Through the years, cowgirl, Southern girls and Hollywood alike have passed down some memorable quotes about being a cowgirl.
As a cowgirl in training, one can take this elder’s advice to her cowgirl southern belle painted in a rodeo bar in Oklahoma, “you are a cowgirl so be respectful, even to hateful people, because your momma raised you better.”
Reflecting from her emotional connection to horses at a young age, Toni Robinson, a self-claimed cowgirl wrote, “horses change lives, they give young people confidence and self-esteem. They provide peace and tranquility to troubled souls and they give hope.
This one is also a stellar cowgirl reflection from the book Show Pen Promise written by Carly Kade, “life is a series of adjustments. I learned that from all the years I spent bronc riding, the bronc goes left, I had to shift right and then make counter mover after counter move. It is the same sort of shuffle and shifts with life.”
And with the uniqueness of cowgirls and the lesson they live by while following the herd, it is but fitting to end this with this Dale Carnegie quote, “a flaming enthusiasm, backed up by a horse’s sense of persistence, is the quality that most frequently makes for success.”
A cowgirl gets up in the morning, decides what she needs to do, and does it.
A cowgirl is a woman with guts and a horse.
A cowgirl stands up for whats’s right, even if she stands alone.
A lot of my family going back were cowboys and barrel racers, and I’d say I’m 50 percent high fashion and 50 percent cowgirl. ~Lydia Hearst

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow. ~Melody Beattie

Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear, or a fool from any direction.
No matter what happens, no matter how far you seem to be away from where you want to be, never stop believing that you will somehow make it. Have an unrelenting belief that things will work out, that the long road has a purpose, that the things that you desire may not happen today, but they will happen. Continue to persist and persevere. ~Brad Gast
