Change is sometimes for the best

Wowie, have I ever had a long few years to make a decision that could change my life in so many ways. For a decade now, I have owned horses. As any horse owner would know, this is not a cheap hobby. For someone like me though, who views their pets like family members, it’s an extremely difficult decision to decide to find them new homes.

I have recently decided to sell, and it was a big decision which took a very long time – I sat on the fence for so long, not being able to choose. I didn’t have the strength to sell them previously, even though I’ve debated it for years. I think back, to all of the time I could have been saving money, and spending my time doing other things……but on the other hand, I believe that when things are meant to be, the circumstances will be perfect. This is what happened to me this weekend. I was trying to find the perfect home, and I had talked to a lot of individuals and families all vying to get my attention so that they could be the new owners. I even had a family 99% lined up, and they sounded wonderful, but hadn’t yet met my horses. Then, because my horse was sore, I had to get him treatment from someone I knew.

The next morning, I received an offer from this person and their family to buy my horses, and let me stay in the picture for as long as I want. It really was the perfect solution to my dilemma, and so much more than I had hoped for, so I gladly accepted. It was then, when I saw that all of the pieces of the puzzle had fallen perfectly into place, that I knew that this was the right thing to do.

What is the moral of my story? Don’t give up hope. If there’s something that you want, but you’re scared to go for it, wait until it feels right, and the conditions are optimal – because then you will know if it’s the right choice or not 🙂 I’m happy I now know. I’m ready to take my life in a different direction and enjoy all that it has to offer!

Do you love your life daily? I do!

I am so excited about life these days! Honestly, I just feel so happy about the path that I’m on, and I wonder why it took me so long to find! The important part is I’m here now, and I’m so grateful 🙂 *Insert huge happy smile here*

Seriously though, what’s better than having a life you love to wake up to every day, and a career that you love to work on? I mean really love, with passion. So much that after a long day you want to go home and work some more so you can share new information or make someone else’s life better! This is what I’m experiencing now, and it’s AMAZING.

Want to know what I did to get there?

You can get here too! With a clear vision, goals, time, and elbow grease you’ll get there! I have been building this life, and working towards it for some time now, about two years actually. It has taken me this long because my vision wasn’t quite clear at the start. I knew I wanted change, and I knew what I’d like my life to look like, but I didn’t know quite how to get there. I’m still working on my daily routine! I’d like to have something that maximizes the efficiency of the hours in my day 🙂

Even with a clear vision and knowing what you want, you have to make the effort and just rip that band-aid off! It’s hard, I know! At first, it’s almost a bit scary, but once you start and see results, you’ll get more motivated. Until I was ready to put the work in to make changes happen, I was kind of in limbo between where I had been, and where I wanted to be. Picture a change purgatory, where we go to figure out our path, before we get to our beautiful new lives 🙂

So once you get really clear with yourself, it’s time to make some change! Maybe you’re already in the change process like me, and you’re feeling like all of the pieces of your vision are coming together? Congrats if you are! What a great place to be! If you’re not quite there yet, that’s ok too! You’ll get there if it’s what you truly want. And despite popular belief, there’s no real time limit for this kind of thing. It’ll happen when you’re good and ready. So get ready, get your hands in there and let’s make change happen! 🙂

If you need a little encouragement, or you’d like to share your story (I’d love to hear it!) comment below! I’m looking for some guest bloggers so I’d love to hear from you!

Have an amazing day!

How learning to say “NO” changed my life and helped me learn self-care

I’m sure at some point most people want to say “NO” to certain people and situations. Haven’t we all? Saying no to the partner who doesn’t treat us right, or the boss who asks us to do something we don’t agree with, or the friend who lies to us and we still are friends with them.

I used to be that person who put up with these kinds of situations. The unhealthy relationships, the jerk bosses and the friends who don’t deserve to be in my life. It drained me. It sucked the life out of me, and I gave up on being happy about my future. It was depressing.

One day earlier this year I put my foot down, and started saying “NO” to these situations….and things started to turn around for me in a positive way.
