Be good to your horse!

I heard on the radio the other day that we should think of our bodies as our horse. We all use our horse to do our work. Would we treat an actual horse the way we treat our bodies? Would we work our horse so hard, feed it the way we feed ourselves, and allow it to rest as we rest? We have to take care of it, as it is the only one we get. We need to be kind to it. Let is rest. Feed it food that will keep it strong. Put it out to pasture once in awhile. Today is my day out to pasture. Well, not a full day but I am working out this morning and then doing a few chores that must be done. I will head to class early so I can sit at Starbucks with a sugar free, skinny Caramel Macchiato.

I know. I know. Bad for the horse. I'm not talking about going on some vegetarian, carrot stick diet. I'm saying that there are days when we feed our emotions instead of just feeding our body. Its great to go out for a treat now and and then and sit in a big over stuffed chair and have some time alone. take care of your horse. Its the only one you've got. It will be happy.

The Animal Cops would have removed my horse by now! Why do we always put ourselves last?!

Thanks, friend, for letting me cry on your shoulder tonight. Sometimes it just gets too hard! I'll call you tomorrow. I'll take a day for me - I do need it.
