Get Caught Up in the Moment
When I am angry or sad I try to do something I love to change the energy. It always moves me in to a state of positive creating positive.
I tried this a couple days ago. Kadie had a friend over for a riding lesson. Just as I was about to go in to the lesson I got a very negative phone call from someone who likes to lash out and attack when things aren’t going well for her. It sent me in to a tizzy. I went from so happy to so angry and sad. Mostly mad that I let her get to me one more time.
I went out to the horses with the girls and would not let myself think of it for one second while working with two of my most favorite things – animals and children. The kids wanted to paint the horses with special horse paint. I took the time to let this happen, to join them.
The girls and horses enjoyed every minute and I was caught up in the moment without a worry in the world, other than thinking I need to order different colors of horse paint. The pink just isn’t showing up on the red horses!
