Everyday is Thanksgiving...

 Happy Thanksgiving to all my family and friends!  Tim, Jamie and the kids,  Mary and Cristian, you will all be very much missed today.  Its hard being the only sibling in the U.S.! 

Evans Eventing and White North Stable has had a great year, and thank you to all my clients and coaches who have tirelessly supported me in all our endeavors!  We have lots of exciting new prospects and "good things" happening in the mix for 2012, and I hope to bring even more joy and success to our riders and horses in the coming year!

At the cost of waxing philosophical, it seems to me that we always take the occasion of the holidays and new year to be "thankful" for all the "things" in our lives and circumstances that enable us to live happily. (Obviously I am no exception) I wonder what the effect would be if we did the following two things...
  • Give thanks for all the obstacles, mistakes, hardships, and crazy things that happen to us on a daily basis that help us learn a lesson, change our thinking, and make us better people.
  • Celebrate "Thanksgiving" on Monday. Celebrate it in March.  Celebrate when it is your darkest day.  Celebrate when it is the brightest hour. 
Celebrate Thanksgiving Day.  Everyday.
