Yes, perhaps journal makes more sense. I have started one of my own now, copying accross pages of the one I store on my computer from when we started our AND training about a week ago. Wow, what amazing changes already! I had a look at yours and bonnies Diary, wow, what a darling little girl she is. Although I guess little is hardly the word. It sounds like you live in a wonderful place.Gem Twist
- I know what you mean about writing things on here, I have read many horse forums but never joined one before because I hate the bitchiness and judging that goes on. This is a wonderfuly safe and nuturing place and has allowed me, the enternal sceptic, to start exploring parts of myself and my mental abilites that I would never have thought of before reading some things on here and feeling somehow encouraged by all these people that i have never met. Strangely I feel much more confident in myself and abilities now that I know you are all out there. Oh, and thank you for your welcome and good luck with getting your own horse.Morgan
- ha ha, sorry about that. I do go on quite a bit when I get started on a subject and am one of those annoying people that can never seem to answer a simple question with a simple answer. Perhaps "i cam out here to work" would have surficed without y entire work history and a run down of my mental state
thank you for your navigation help Oh, and although I haven't uploaded any photos eyt, i started a new diary on here to do and put a link to a photo of one of horses, Jelli in there.
do they call us Poms in SA too? i thought it was just in Oz... Well, you learn something new everyday.Pat
- life certainly has a way of putting you were you are supposed to be, doesn't it? Thank you for your welcome. I have just finished reading her (Carolyn Resnick) book (about a week ago) and found it fascinating. Very insightful. in fact, i think I am going to need to read it again and again, possibly with a highlighter in hand this time. I started the waterhole techniques a while ago but after reading the book I now see what I was doing wrong and why it didn't work out for me. I was trying too hard, rushing it. Now I just take life one minute at a time with my horses and we are much happier.
