    When everything falls into place - a 'good luck' thread

    There are so many whinging, complaining, negative threads that crop up around here - so how about a 'geez life is going well' thread?

    I'll start it off with a bit of an essay!
    I haven't been around here much since I was accepted to start training with the police force a few months ago. Having applied about 18 months ago, with a long and tedious recruitment process, losing my job just before Christmas 2012, and struggling to find any real work until April 2013, I was feeling a wee bit stressed for a while there. I sold my riding horse, made quite the pretty penny on him. I purchased him for a bargain price last year, with extremely good blood lines, super paces and a really talented little head on his shoulders but very much out of work. Got him up to state level competition, started flying changes and some half step work and more than tripled my money in 12 months after feed/agistment/general care bills. Got to be happy with that!

    That money allowed me to pay off my car, which gave me a bit more breathing room.
    In June, I started in the police, and am having an absolute ball - I can't believe I get paid to do this training!! Learning to shoot (for an Aussie girl that's a big deal - its tough to get a firearm here, not every man and his dog like you guys in the US!), driving a police car like I stole it around a racetrack, and having a blast with my course mates. Its tough work as far as the academic and time restraints, but I have definitely found my calling.

    My young warmblood, who I have owned since a weanling, will be 3 at the end of this month and is booked in for breaking in November.
    My partner has finally caved in an agreed to let me get a bullmastiff puppy
    And I have put my hand up to do a country placement when I finish my academy study - out in 'the sticks' dealing with a lot of Indigenous Australians and being very much thrown into the deep end as far as being a prob. Connie goes!
    My artwork is suffering a little, I haven't had much time to pick up my pastels so they are sitting in the corner collecting dust But on the plus side, I have 4 commissions already waiting in the pipeline for as soon as I get some time/finish studying


    Phew, got all of my 'happy' raving off my chest.

    Who's next??

    Well, I was accepted to a pretty presegious Nursing Program. Its been crazy stressful! But appears that I have passed the first 2 classes and will be moving onto clinical. We have 7 week classes, so its incredibly fast paced.

    Life overall is just good. Im strapped for money due to cutting back to less then 'part-time' at work. But thankfully my parents are just wonderful and just want me to get through school.

    Dogs are great, horses are healthy and happy. And we just now had to start feeding some hay. Our pasture was so great this year, its October and we still have grass horses can munch on.

    Overall, im happy where I am right now.

    I have a new horse & we are learning about each other. I have been busy unpacking my horse gear & getting it situated in my tack shed. Next year I would like to get a 20' container that will be for feed & overflow. Extra clothes, etc. A place for tack-cleaning & getting ready to sell what I don't use. I'm pretty happy w/my life as it is right now, too.

    My wife and I had our second little girl in July. We had some gastric problems with her initially but seem to be getting through that. They are both happy and healthy and Kick my backside in Daddy daycare while my wife is at work. I have them on my days off. We both work shift work. Her a police officer and I'm sure you can't guess what I am.

    I'm glad you found your "calling" job wise. It is a speacial thing when you find what you were ment to do. Not many are that lucky. My wife and I are and it sounds like you are to. Watch your 6, and the other officers always.

    I can relate! Life is good here too!
    Ridiculously busy & horse poor, yet blissfully happy since I jumped head first back into horses this year.

    I am always saying who knew my Dream Life would be so exhausting?!

    LOVING my life right now =)

    I wake up every morning and itemize what I am thankful for, and it is a lot. Then I itemize what I would be even more thankful for - if I had it...you know, on the off chance anyone is listening up there.

    Glad you had a great year!
