Hey everyone! Long time between posts, I know. Truth be told, I have been lacking a bit of mojo lately, and struggling to come up with a topic, so I apologise if this post is a bit like an episode of Seinfeld. 😝
What a strange world we are all existing in at the moment! The freedom and liberties we once took for granted have flown out the window, and so many people have had their lives turned upside down and livelihoods decimated. I always try to look on the bright side of life, and even though things really are a bit shit at the moment, we can be very proud of the fact that the Australian people have largely pulled together to fight this virus, and avoided the devastation that so many countries have been experiencing. The good news is, life will eventually return to normal, and hopefully people will face the future with a little more appreciation and gratitude for just how good life really is in this beautiful country. 🙂
On a more personal note, one of the things i have been struggling with the most at the moment is the loss of routine in my day. Some excellent advice I was once given, was when things feel like they are out of control, focus on something that is absolutely in my control, get a foothold and go from there. For me, that has been focussing on working my horses more often. I am not entirely sure that Tommy and Banjo agree this is a good thing, but it has really helped me re-centre myself, and rediscover my motivation in a lot of areas i could feel it fading.
Anyway, I hope you are all getting some quality time in the saddle, and looking forward to returning to the competition arena as much as i am. Even more so, I am looking forward to spending time with my fabulous friends, and having some sort of social life again. I miss them more than anything i think!
Stay safe, healthy, and enjoy your riding.
