Do you remember when you were a princess, had huge dreams, climbed to the top of towers, and slew dragons? Hopefully, you’re still that girl (or guy!). As we grow up and learn responsibility, respect, patience, and even fear, we sometimes forget where we started and worry about toppling. If we let the doubt take over, it will hold us back. Today, take a minute and remember back to that time when you were carefree and embraced the challenge of slaying dragons.
That’s a picture of my daughter. She might’ve been around four-years-old at that time. Yes, she was at the top of the jungle gym, slaying a dragon or monster of some sort. My, to have the imagination of a four-year-old! Something that I’ve never let her forget is that she can slay dragons. If you listen to this week’s MAC Outdoors podcast you’ll hear her tell some stories about conquering obstacles on the way to becoming an independent young lady.

We dropped her off at college over a month ago. She hit the ground running and has embraced her classes, she’s meeting new people, and shooting more shotgun competitions than ever.
At one shotgun shoot, she encountered a “dragon” who discouraged but didn’t stop her. Listen up as she tells the story of intimidation, obstacles, and other challenges she faced as she shot at took first place in her class and division during that event.
I am very proud of the wonderful woman she has become. She is still my beautiful little princess, and she’s slaying dragons. Be a dragon slayer — Metaphorically speaking, of course!
