Weekly Photo Challenge: Beginning
This week has been all about new beginnings for Bear and I.
As mentioned in last week’s photo challenge, I moved my beautiful boy to a new barn on Tuesday. I picked December 31 on purpose. It was symbolic of leaving the past behind and starting the new year, and a new life, on completely fresh footing.
Of course, making such a dramatic change creates challenges.
Establishing new friends, new routines, new patterns of behaviour, and getting used to new surroundings takes time and energy and mindfulness.
But it’s so worth it.
Bear and I are beginning a new chapter in our relationship.
I am beginning a new chapter in my development as a horse person.
Bear is beginning a new chapter in his development as a confident dressage horse.
Naturally, such a major shift is unsettling for both of us. But it is a new journey we share mindful step by mindful step and a new opportunity to deepen my experience of living in the moment.
With my horse. And with life.
Thanks for visiting …
