(8) Lose weight, eat more veggies and get healthier (and of course to look better while riding Paula)!
Well, I've lost more than I expected--twenty pounds! I'm the lightest I've been in well over a year and a half!! I haven't really had much of a chance to exercise with all the work I've been doing and my eating habits aren't great, so the only thing I can credit this to is the HUGE reduction in stress I've had. Now if I just get my britches in gear I might be able to make some real headway!
(9) Sadly the White Horse Resource is still a terribly neglected website. Well, it's only February, right?
(10) I left open for future resolutions and here they are. Yes, "they." It's a two-parter.
10a--I will be more optimistic. I was thinking about this while feeding this evening (admiring Eddie and thinking how much I missed him). I've been through a lot the last couple of years. It would be very easy for me to assume that another huge loss is right around the corner--to live each day expecting the next tragedy in what has become a laundry list of heartbreak.
But then I ask myself "What good does that do?" Shit happens, whether we expect it or not, whether we fear it or not, and whether we look around every corner for it or not. I need to take my own advice I gave to someone struggling years ago: the only way I can be happy is if I choose to be happy. No one/nothing else is going to make me happy.
Although the horses sure make me happy :)
Which brings me to 10b: Practicality leads to horse harmony!
