"Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy." ~ Leo BuscagliaA Wise Woman once told me that life is filled with moments in time and by savoring that moment is truly what brings life alive! And to really live, one needs to breathe those moments to life as if resuscitating joy itself!
Last night, I missed a moment filling it with worry and fret over the weeks ahead. I could have breathed Sugar's sweet smell, a combination of fresh pine woods and newly mown hay. I could have enjoyed the pleasure of a hard grooming of an itchy coat. And I could have kissed a very kissable nose and loved being alone with my Lil' Pinto Pony.
Instead, I greeted the evening like an obligation and duty that must be performed. As the curry greeted her skin, I spent that moment worried about whether she was losing her topline, or weak in her hind end which led to whether or not we will ever be ready for the season. And if she's ready, will I be?
And so begins the endless planning, self derision and loads of overthinking... Until...
It's all about the moment! Sugar looks fantastic and is the soundest she's ever been. Her muscling is even and her body is strong! She is happy and healthy... We are both lucky to have each other...
Work is hard and life is filled with changes... Some now and some in the future. The weather has been brutal and even with an indoor, riding regularly has been challenging.
Worry and fret hasn't solved anything. It continues to rob one of that moment... Like kissing the kissable nose!
What will be will be!
