    Chin up girl. Life is full of ups and downs. Sometimes it's the simplest of things that make life grand. Don't sweat the small stuff. Life is toooooo short.

    Lots of wisdom in this post. And remember, it's the downs that help us appreciate the ups.......Or as Margret Mitchell wrote in the closing lines of the famous novel Gone With The Wind......."Oh well, tomorrow's another day".

    I am so proud of myself.

    So my instructor was very tough on me this past lesson. Literally had me working to my limits.

    And it was so much fun!!!

    So in awkward situations where someone is expecting you to do so much and you don't have that inner confidence.. so it turns out ugly.. most of the time I default to being all sulky. But this time I laughed. I laughed and laughed at how my D shaped "circle" turned out, or how I picked up the wrong lead, or how she would hop (fake buck) at the trot at times when I wasn't using enough leg.

    At the end of the lesson I had a lovely round, FORWARD, rhythmic, more-balanced horse underneath me. My legs were like iron and wet noodles at the same time, my back nice and soft, my core engaged, my arms weren't coming to towards my chin, and I wasn't yanking on her face.

    We did walk, trot, canter, trot, halt exercises. We had the most perfect nearly square halt from a trot. I was picking up canter without ANY need of the whip (I had actually forgotten to grab it again when I stopped for a water break) and she was on the money!

    Lovely lovely ride :) My shoulders are nice and sore (from that and 4 horus of basketball lol!) and my back isn't locked up or painful. I'm very happy!!


    Sky got a pretty bad injury a few days ago.. puncture wound on his hock. We were SO LUCKY that it wasn't the kind that goes Septic and the horse has to be pts. He is fine, and feeling much better! Fingers crossed that it stays that way!!!!


    As for me and that guy, well.. we've hung out a few times. I'm still kind of awkward around him, and mean at times (It's one of my defensive mechanisms lol...) but he still wants to hang out with me which is a good sign. We're actually spending a large part of tomorrow out in the "wilderness" 'together' so yah I'm excited to see more of what NZ has to offer :)

    Don't want to say much else... just on cloud nine right now

    Ohhhh my........

    Ummm so I hve mixed feelings right now. I have been nightmare free for 5 nights in a row. But my goodness these dreams are so... steamy??

    Like that particular person is in them and he's all lovey dovey with me. I wake up breathing really hard and smiling like crazy.

    But then an hour later once I full wake up I'm shocked that this is happening to me

    I really like him, but having such issues being a normal girl about it. I have all these reservations which I shouldn't have. For example my leg was very tight and he went to touch it and being the ticklish gigglemonster that I am, I jumped back and laughed and then said "hey!" instead of just.. idk... being normal about it?

    Oh well, we will see how this goes.

    Just be yourself. Don't stress about things that may or may not be. Just relax and have fun hanging out with him...and enjoy those dreams ;P (vast improvement from nightmares eh?!)

    As someone once said, take this with a big steaming pile of FWIW: I know for myself, when I first met/was hanging out with Gentleman Friend, everything was just different...felt weightier. I still don't know why, maybe it's because he's someone I could actually see myself ending up with? But in any case, I worked soooooo hard to just push him away...but at the same time, I was trying to pull him in too! Poor guy was probably so confused.
    Anyway, he'd compliment me and I'd go off on how wrong he was, he'd be there for me and I would half-mock him for being there, the whole deal. In the moment, those things would come out of my mouth and I remember consciously thinking "WHY am I being like this?! WHAT is wrong with me!!???" and I'd have no answer. One time he hugged me, before he knew I didn't like being touched by just anyone, and though I LOVED getting a hug from him, I literally WENT OFF on him. After that, he still touched me all the time, but it was always with permission!
    It was ridiculous. Like I was angry PMS-ing EVERY SINGLE DAY.

    Anyway, I realized that for me, it's just my defense mechanism against him. I could/can see how easy it was for him to get my heart inextricably wrapped around his finger, easier and deeper than any other guy I've met, and I was scared of being hurt. I'm still scared of being hurt but I'm not freaking out on him about much.

    On the steamy dream front: much better than nightmares!!
    If it makes you feel better, I've seen Mr. Gman sans shirt ONCE and that image is BURNED into my mind. Like I can't even think about it without getting..........happy.
    So I work really hard not to think about it. I'm totally fine with shirtless guys in general, not a huge fan of it to be honest but it doesn't get distracting. Mr. Gman on the other hand.........

    In any case: Maggie likes a boy! Maggie likes a boy! *group sigh*
