“If you can’t listen, you have to feel” – Unknown
I’m not sure who originated the quote but I use to have a co-worker say it all the time. It’s true! If you cannot learn from what other people say and take the advice that is given, you have to go out and experience for yourself. Sometimes this is a good thing, but sometimes it isn’t.

It’s pretty much the serenity prayer wrapped up in a few lines and sang by one of my all time favorite bands.
“If you got a taste of that, you couldn’t get enough. You’d rather do that than eat. You may spend your whole life chasin’ that and you may never get it, but it’s a good thing to chase.” – Buck Brannaman
Buck uses this line in his movie “Buck” in reference to operating a horse based on a “feel”. It sums up why I ride.
