Do your dreams seem far away? Does the distance between you and the finish line deflate your motivation? Often we forget that goals and dreams are not achieved overnight, but rather in a series of small steps. Progress towards your goals should also be counted as victorious! Stop looking at the end result to bring you the greatest joy. Instead, celebrate the ways in which your life is gravitating towards that desired result. Nothing is guaranteed in life, so make the most of each day and persevere. Remember that the small things in life build up to the bigger ones.
This is a SparkPeople.com Healthy Reflection that totally hit home with some things going on in our world recently. I know I haven’t sent something like this in a while, but time has been short. I am just taking time to do this today. 😛
This weekend we will be going to Rick’s family reunion in (of all places) Mobile, AL. Yeah, during hurricane season on the danged beach.
We are actively working on making the ranch a working ranch. Rick so wants to quit his real job and only work with the horses. We are slowly getting to that point. This weekend I will take the lap top and work on the buisness plan, new Seirra Ranch web site, and the million of other things that I need to do to get this further down the road. Soon, we will need to LLC the operation. Occassionally on here you will see some things that might help with your ranch operations. Let me know what you think of them.
Rick teased me about the life coach post. 🙂 He of course thinks my horse has lots more to teach me and I need to just spend more time with him. Man, I wished it really worked that way. Third Time is so funny. I have been trying to get him to warm us to us. Now when he sees me coming out to the pasture he comes running to me, since I have been using treats to get him to warm up. LOL! This past weekend he came and sould have put his head in the birdle I had for Maverick if I had just left it there long enough for him to figure it out. I have rode Third Time once. I need to ride him some more, but have this terrible fear of riding in the pasture and feel that since Mav doesn’t give a flying flip if I am scared then it’s better to ride him and get me unscared of the pasture riding. Then I will take on the new challenge of the new horse (Third Time). Oh, what I would give for some dry weather and a nice trail ride. 🙂
Well, best get back to work. Got lots to do before I leave. Hope you and yours are well. wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
