Doesn't this sky look like exclamation marks,-in a cloud kinda way of course- centered on one big exclamation dot?!! Does to me!
1)I have Seasonal affected Disorder, and the fog of winter, as I've let on here and there, does seep into me and I function at a lower operational level than most normal folks. I do get easily overwhelmed...and shut down(winter times more/summer times less)
The latest bestower is a girl named ABBIE from the United kingdom. Her blog is WALKING WITH HORSES , is refreshingly sweet and I am enjoying getting to know her. She came by to tell me she had nominated me- (I do need this kind prompting) So, I popped on over there and as I read her 7 personal items ...I realised (lightbulb moment) she was telling honest things, not so much proud moments and great things about herself, just her reality.
It really warmed my heart. 2) You see, I take myself pretty seriously, I'm guarded most the time. Being highly sensitive and also intuitive with a side of- high sense responsibility...it can be tough to be me.(funny, that's what I tell my horse about herself!)
So, I vowed to follow through to her, as I thanked her for the nice mention of my horsey blog.
3) Some may have noticed some not, I have written the additional "and other glimpses of life" to my blogs header name. This is for the purpose of sharing more of me here...kind of a path of faith- going ahead of me- reminding me to do so!
Anddd ....You may have noticed something else by now...I'm not just listing my 7 items in an order, like normally done either.. letting them flow out as I write. 4) I always want to have a plan, but I adore spontaneity!!!
I think it helps me not to be too serious, as life twists and turns....off the road map!
Okay, speaking of PLAN...I did actually write down 7 items to share and so far, 1 on that list has been mentioned -haha! See, the spontaneous me.
Here is one that goes with the Original Blog title.
5) I have learned that Horse ownership is much like seeing a reflection of one's self; holding the mirror up to the inner being . Your horse has an uncanny ability to reflect your innermost, and sometimes, unintentionally hidden, attitudes. The horse you love can be the catalyst to unlocking and reveling worlds of joy and also (important)obstacles to hurdle.
My horse has been used of God to comfort me in times of stress, shown me indifference's that needed to be dealt with, and all while allowing me to breath and calm myself to go forth confidently. And now, as I face fears to learn a language to meet her again in harmony and rhythm- I KNOW It'll be used in my daily life as well!
Yea, it's been a rough road with this mare-o-mine...for her too, putting up with my lack of riding skill, having been off the horse for 25 years. Then her putting up with who I chose to take care of her in boarding, 7 times now, having a lack of knowledge for what mattered most to her.
6) My Motto in life, for people I meet and work around, is pretty much this: If you treat me like you like me- I'll show you love in return.
If I detect flaws in character/ethics (say one thing do another/or are cruel/dishonest) and if my intuitive self throws up a red flag (I may not know why cognitively so, right away, but eventually I will)I will distance myself and or run(not literally....my self protect mode is set pretty high.)
7) Already...7! This was much easier than I though it would be..um,
I love STRONG COFFEE! My coffee has legs of it's own and has been known to walk, skip and leap. YUP. In fact, if it isn't good /strong( those mean the same thing to me) I will forgo partaking at all.
71/2)....this would not be a good list to me at all- without saying- I love and adore my husband!
ALRIGHTY THEN...I did it and I feel accomplished for doing so...and also for forgiving myself, for not mentioning all my wonderful friends that nominated me(before Abbie) ..you know who you are and know I appreciate you too!
Here's the other thing I'm forgiving myself...not nominating anyone in particular...as most(not all) of my blog friends have already been given this and the others are "award free".
So no need for rules either...I broke most already!
