Blue Skies and Horse Dreams!

sky horseHi!

It’s nearly the end of 2015 and the start of 2016, so I’ll wish you an early happy New Year!!

Come January, we all start thinking about turning our lives into the lives we want. The scattered, abandoned promises of last year are forgotten as we enthusiastically come up with our New Year’s resolutions. Is it just me, or do New Year’s resolutions always seem to be the same, repeated then forgotten every year?

Still, I like January! It feels like a fresh start, another chance, full of endless possibilities and opportunities. A few years ago I came across the concept of blue sky thinking, which I think is very poetic and suitable for New Year. Anything is possible, there are no limitations!!!

Sometimes it’s slightly sad reflecting on the past year, but the overriding feeling is one of hopeful positivity for the future.

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne!

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne.
We’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

– Auld Lang Syne, Robert Burns

Do you celebrate New Year? Usually there’s a party on New Year’s eve, with people traditionally singing Auld Lang Syne, and then everyone setting off fireworks at the stroke of midnight!!! The sky is filled with colour and light!!

I’m determined to stick to my New Year’s resolutions this time! I want 2016 to be the year I fulfil my horse dreams and thought I’d share my horsey New Year’s resoultions with you:

  1. To work towards my Pony Club C+ test and be ready to take it by the end of the year.
  2. To start entering more shows and competitions (I’ve not done much competing but the last show I did was fun).
  3. To continue volunteering with horses and gain more equine experience.

Good luck with your New Year’s resolutions, and have a very happy New Year!!!

  2. First of all I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask
    if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I’ve had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas
    out. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas
    or hints? Thank you!

    • Hi, I’m glad you like my blog!

      To be honest, I’m not really sure how I centre myself before writing! With other things I often find it difficult to decide what to write, but that’s not been a problem so far when I’m writing blog posts. Because I’m so obsessed about horses I’m usually thinking of them all the time anyway, and when I try to write about them the words just sort of pour out.

      Having said that, I do understand how difficult it can be when you’re just staring at a blank screen or piece of paper. I usually create a list or mind map of different ideas before I start, then choose the one that interests me most. It’s easiest to write about something you’re passionate about.

      If you’re distracted by other thoughts, you could try to clear your mind of them by scribbling a quick diary entry before you start. Don’t worry too much if you have to think for a few minutes before you start writing – chances are what you do write will be better because of it.

      What do you write? Do you have a blog? I hope this helps, and sorry that it’s such a long answer!!!
