Doing what you love....

If there is something I have learned in the last few years, it is do what you love TODAY. Tomorrow is a gift and not guaranteed to be there! Life is entirely too short to wait. I don't want to sound morbid, but after the passing of two very young people in my family in the last few years it has made me realize just how precious life is.
With that said, I am going to start riding again! I rode and competed for close to 20 years. It is something that has never "left" me, but actually has become a part of me. I have never "outgrown" it, yet knew I would always go back some day. I have both boys riding since they were five. But I haven't been on a horse in over 10 years! I am looking forward to the enjoyment, exercise and the fun that I always had riding. Riding horses (English anyway) is the original core training!
I'm glad I can share my continued journey here with you! Also, say a little prayer my ole' bod can take it! ;) I also wanted to add that in while keeping in the "do what you love" attitude I am also becoming the crazy lady who wears rhinestone hair barrettes, a lil' bit of crazy jewelry and more daring with clothes than I have been in a long time!!! I will say that this new outlook on life has made me feel more myself than I have in a LONG time! And it feels good! Do something for yourself today, you'll feel great and you'll thank me!

Good for you! My daughter surprised me with a trail ride on my birthday after I mentioned that I wanted to ride a horse. I never rode one before and since then I think about riding lots. I'd love to have a horse!

That photo is you, right? How COOL! I'm so glad you are doing what you love and looking great doing it!

I'm with you on the hairpins, etc. I'm loving it right along with you. Big costume rings, too. The diamonds ('cept for the wedding ring) are tucked away for the fun stuff. :)

That's a great attitude Kristi! I agree with my whole heart. I didn't realize you rode. Emma just started but has stopped for Winter. She adores it. It is her thing.
