Time Flies . . . Even When You're Not Having Fun

Two months since my last post . . . big surprise!

The biggest news is that I moved.  It seems very surreal right now but I am living in my new (to me) house and right out the window I can see my Cricket grazing.  In some moments it feels as if it's always been this way and then I blink and wonder how I got here.

The house is proving to be a bigger challenge than I imagined.  I am struggling to stay positive and I need to redouble my efforts.  Too often I find myself complaining and it's draining my motivation and it's entirely too counter-productive.  So I am going to work on my "attitude of gratitude" and shift my focus to everything that is amazing.

I've spent little time with Cricket simply because of the sheer magnitude of everything else that needs to be done.  She is settling in well and I truly believe she's happy.

Hi there...

I saw you post something on another site in the comments about your "30 in 30". I was just curious to what this means (it was something about goal setting or getting out there with your horses). Thanks! :)

My "30 in 30" plan was hatched in 2009 in an attempt to accelerate my horsemanship and get me over some of the hurdles in my journey.  The idea came from a friend who got the idea from the movie Julie & Julia.  Because of my work schedule, I kept the bar low and decided on just 10 minutes of something positive and progressive each day - even if that meant hand-grazing or grooming or just being with my horse.

The details of the plan can be found in the initial post A Leader Has A Plan.

Thanks! It sounds like a great plan. I'll have to try it. :)
