Peace Out 2015

Last year I kicked the year off with a SWOT.  I think I’ll try that again for 2016.  Unlike many people my year can be summed up in one very long run on sentence.

We tried various techniques to try to channel O’s sudden mood change about her hunter/jumper career, but after multiple failures we send her off to my in-laws for a change of pace while I have a baby.

Ta da!  Year sum up!

Anyway, moving onto 2016.

Strengths:

–Badass riding family.  Trainer, vet, friends, horses, family.  They rock.

–Doctor gave me the okay to get back in the saddle!

Weakness:

–Complicated horse situation

–New tiny human who relies on me (not that it’s a bad thing-just something to note!)

Opportunities:

–Horse shows if I please

–Friends who are offering to help with my horse situation, offer me other rides should I need a ride off from O

–I can ride again, for the first time in MONTHS

–Awesome riding program to jump back into

Threats:

–Continued discussion about what is O’s path forward

–Continued discussion about my path forward

–Time balance between work/home/hobbies

 

All in all, I’m ready to take on this year and whatever it brings.  Change can be good, and I have so much to be grateful.  Life is full of twists and turns, I just need to hold on for the ride.  Thank you to everyone who has reached about with nice comments about O’s confusing situation.  I really appreciate it.
