There are changes afoot…(or is that ahoof?) here, chez Infinity….good ones, but not necessarily comfortable ones.
The full details are difficult to go into, in the public domain, but there’s also nothing worse than being vague and cryptic.
So, nutshell version: I’m moving Buzz.
We’re moving to a small, family-run farm about a half hour from where I live…..it’s a lovely little place (only 15 stalls!) with all of the right ideas and run by people who you can tell, by being in their company only a few minutes, that horses are their passion.
The uber-bonus is that they’re eventing folk.
You see, Buzz and I are at a fork in the road…and that particular intersection is one where I had to seriously ask myself..
no, I mean, really.
I realized that not only do I need the coaching and facilities to move us closer to our goals, I need the company.
And I’m just not able to access that where we are now.
Sure, I could ship to the coaching and the facilities as needed, but a) expense and b) having the company of other people with similar goals is pure gold, y’know? It’s motivational and inspirational and all of the -ationals.
Plus, I’m a master procrastinator and if left to my own devices, we might never get off the property.
This wasn’t an easy decision to make — these things rarely are.
I’ve had to give up G – who has done so much for us and truly helped me believe that we can actually do this thing. The new place has a resident (eventing!) coach and doesn’t allow incomers (not unusual around here)…understandable, but sad, nonetheless.
I’m trading a 5 minute drive for a 20-ish minute drive…which still, for most people, is a blessedly short trip….but really, 5 minutes has been HEAVEN!!
And I’m a very loyal person — I form attachments and strongly dislike upset and confrontation. And no matter how amicable these things are, there’s still…well, Feelings and it’s unpleasant when things fall apart.
I guess I’m just a bad breaker-upper.
Still, it was a necessary thing for our #goals…and it’s absolutely a good thing…on multiple levels.
I’m super-jazzed for this next step in our adventure….onwards to infinity and all that. 🙂
