One of my favorite parts of ringing in the new year in blogland is reading everyone’s year-end recaps and their goals for the next year. I started doing an extended year in review series a few years ago, and I love doing it. It helps me see how far I’ve come in the last 365 days, and always gives me some much-needed perspective at this time of the year. As has become customary for me, I’m a bit behind this year, but better late than never! So here’s the first of my 2015 in Retrospect series: a month by month recap.
Horses are expensive. Whether you own, lease, or ride once a month, the equestrian sport takes a lot of financial resources. For working adult amateurs, this can be quite the challenge to overcome, and it’s one of the most common problems we all face: what do you spend your money on?
2015 has been a year full of ups and downs for me so far. Lately, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about who and what is most important to me and whether or not I’m living my life every day in the best way possible. I’m finding that my thoughts leave me with many more questions than answers, and part of me is very frustrated that a clear path hasn’t presented itself yet. But regardless of what the future holds, I’m working hard to enjoy today. In fact, I have a lot to be thankful for… a whole heck of a lot. So while some people are stretching their thanks out over the entire month, I’m writing down 30 things I’m thankful for right now. Today. This very minute.
