Happy Anniversary to this blog! I have been writing this blog for a year, although it was originally published on a different web site. As I reflect on the year, I took some time to look at the statistics. If someone uses a search engine to find my site, they are generally searching about bull riding, PBR, JB Mauney, or another bull rider’s name. We bull riding fans want to connect with other bull riding fans. We want to get to know the riders we support, and we just want to find our place to belong. Our place is with others who are in some way like us, including having similar interest.
We all have a desire to be a part of a group, bull riding enthusiasts included. The PBR (Professional Bull Riders) know this. A requirement of any event is that the bull riders take time to greet the fan. The organization understand t hat people want to make a connection with those they watch so many weeks of the year.
Do we understand the importance of making connections? Do we take the time to connect with the people in our lives? Do we take the time to add new connections in our lives? Greeting one another, speaking to your neighbor, or even commenting on the weather does not take a long time, but it can give the opportunity for a connection. We are not meant to live in isolation. We are meant to be connected with other people. Thanks to my fellow bull riding fans who make connections. Thanks to you when you reach out to another person. You are shining the light of love in the world.
