My favorite season - summer - went out like a lion with 6 inches of snow on the last day. I'm not quite ready for winter, but here we go!
After a challenging summer of medical emergencies, happily our family is back "in the pink", except for my horse, Jet. He has a tendon injury that could possibly (oh, no!) prevent him from having any exercise for months. So far, most of our advisors, including our Vet, have said that rest and confinement will probably help the most. There is a possibility of surgery with less than 100% results.
His situation reminds me of so many things in life that we want fixed NOW, and yet we are faced with the reality of a slow, steady, unexciting, consistent solution. Issues such as health, relationships or changing a habit more often than not take time, something that we all have so little of and such impatience about. I can still suffer from this, but am reminded by my twelve-step program that it's one day at a time.
So, we'll try to get Jet well, most probably slowly, surely, consistently. Maybe that same method could be a solution for you and your impatience, too.
