1st Quarter Recap + 2nd Quarter Goals

"If you're going through hell, keep going" - Winston Churchill 1 st  Quarter Goals, ·           Keep Kidd's mane tame ·           Continue to have fun, and literally just enjoy the ride ·           Track my Expenses ·           Find a feeding plan suited to Kidd   (See Post: 1st Quarter Goals ) So at this point it’s safe to say things have not gone to plan in 2018.   Things started well, but the mudslide quickly started and I’m feeling like I’m scraping rock bottom in my riding right now.   I know I will get through this, but this post is really difficult to write at this point as a result.   I’m shining light on my failure in doing this, but it needs to be done.

Crippling Concern

"The beautiful spring came; and when Nature resumes her loveliness, the human soul is apt to revive also." -- Harriet Ann Jacobs It's been a while since I have blogged and the truth is, I have been really busy both physically, and mentally. Ironically, it's always the mental blur that inhabits my brain that makes me feel incapacitated the most.  While I am busy shaping up for our first horse show (which I run and typically try to ride in, too) on the Long Weekend in May, I have also been front row for the battle taking place in my brain for what seems like, indefinitely.  Both during the daylight hours and haunting my dreams as I sleep, it consumes me.  The fear and frustration is back. Just 'cuz. And PS, we are getting our new puppy on Saturday! C will be thrilled. Since the day I tumbled off Kidd some time ago, he has been different, and I imagine so have I.  At the risk of sounding like a voodoo-lady; like I shook one too many brain cells too l
