Revised 2016 Goals

Moving forward with the idea of thinking proactively, I’ve decided I’m going to come up with a revised set of goals for the year. Because just because my entire horsey list got dashed 6 days into the year doesn’t mean I can’t have things to work towards for the next 11 months.

So, knowing oh so well that man proposes, but God disposes, here are my lightly-written-in-pencil plans.

First and foremost…

  1. Find the perfect situation for Foster.


Homeboy owes me nothing, and I owe him a lot (post coming). After so much discussion, doubts, and pleas to trusted friends for advice, the right situation for Foster is looking like a new rider. That could be a long term free lease situation, but more likely it will be a permanent change with one hell of a first-right-of-refusal contract (Hello, lawyer husband- aren’t you a handy one). More on this later.

  1. Keep riding.

Whether it’s Foster while he’s still with me, another horse, I don’t want to give up this hobby. Heartbreaking as it can be, horses are a part of who I am and my identity- so that’s not going to change. I’m lucky enough to have some options for this, and once I figure out Foster I’ll be able to share more.

  1. Focus on savings

There’s a whole lot of balls in the air right now, and a key to feeling secure in any of the directions this year will take me will desire a bit of cash in my back pocket. So I’ve got to make a big effort to redirect my dollars to the savings account, something I’ve only been so-so at in the past.

2016. From the hopeful year of redemption to the year of guess-we’ll-see-what-happens.
