You ever have those weeks, you feel like you are barely treading water? Usually I have a very Doryesque view of life. I mean as long as I am right side up I’ve had one victory for that day…
But lately I have felt more like Nemo.
Most of my struggles come from the 4 legged animal with the same name. For the past 6 months i have been completely blessed to care for my friend Emily’s horse Nemo. Not only did I get a free pony, exactly in my budget, Nemo is a champion from the AQHA World, Congress, and all around badass.
However Nemo is headed back to Charlie and Jason’s tomorrow.. And I am on the struggle bus to figure out what to do next.
I have decided to run in another pageant, which begins in January. While I am excited and determined to make the most of this experience, I still seem to be in a bit of a funk. Career wise things could not be better, however I feel like I have hit a riding rut. Though I’ve never been one who let buckles define me; it sure is hard to not be able to join my friends in the show pen every weekend like I used to.
Blame it on the fact that my corgi is with my parents (mom said she wants rid of him like yesterday) but I have not had a lot to smile about this past week. The up side is next week I will have dead leg muscles from my lazy ponies and have to chase after my corgi again. Funny how the things you take for granted mean the most.
