"Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving" Albert Einstein
Life for me for the past few years has brought me to understand that balance is so important. Balance not just on the horse horse, but off the horse as well. I am sure I am not the only one. We all have to balance working, playing, family, friends, and our health and well being. I don't know about you but I suck at juggling.
I got a little off balance for a few weeks. I did, I was about to fall off the horse. I was so bummed about Kinsey, I was not sticking to exercise or what I was eating. I was not sure, still am not sure what I am gong to do about all these horses. I was looking at the ground. We all know what happens if we are looking at the ground while we ride. . . that is where we end up?
Same off the horse. I just realized I was walking around with my head down, my shoulders slumped. As an old riding instructor used to tell me, look where you are going. If you are looking at the ground, that is where you will go. I was looking at the items in life that were not working instead of looking where I want to go.
Don' t worry, I got my eyes off the ground and straight between the horses ears again. I have lost weight again, I am exercises again, and I am getting ideas of what to do with the horses. So much is looking up I really have no reason to complain.
