Sometimes just seizing the moment is the right thing to do. For instance, the other day I was giving my donkey a lesson. I like to keep them short and sweet. She walked into the horse trailer very nicely, ate a couple of molasses cookies and walked out very nicely. Perfect.
Then it was time for me to put some “human bean” weight on her like a sack of potatoes. I laid across her and she was very calm and good. And right then, seizing the moment just felt like the right thing to do. So I sat up on her and the donkey was getting her first ride. Actually, it was a first experience for the donkey and a first donkey ride for the old lady!
What happened next was the kind of thing that can happen when seizing the moment totally unprepared.
Because I hadn’t planned to ride the donkey, I didn’t have much figured out in the way of steering, so the donkey went wherever she wanted to go. You can see the results. Good that I had a place to step off.
Not really a bad example of seizing the moment in regular, everyday life. Be ready for opportunites that can come your way. Know your budget, your goals, your family plans, and those of your significant other! Then, when an exciting opportunity is offered, be ready to jump if it fits into your personal goals. In other words, plan ahead for the unexpected!
And take advantage of some great opportunities available today in the real estate market. There are still homes out there that can be purchased, fixed up and turned to good profit if you are of that mindset. Or, this may be the time to for you to be dreaming big while the banks are still making loans at these amazing rates!
And if you are training a donkey, plan ahead for steering! Try to avoid MY mistakes!
Always Expect the Best!
Way to go Joanie! You are so brave and your donkey I think was very comfortable with your gentle touch. Congrats on your video, you are learning so much and taking action, which is key.
