So, if I told you that I truly enjoy scooping poop,
would you believe me?
I truly do.
It is one of those satisfying chores...
when it's done, the pasture looks pristine,
and I know that it is healthier for the horses...
fewer parasites in the grass.
Manure mucking has become a lesson
in not only cleaning pastures,
but also in cleaning my mind.
I try during these tasks to be completely present in the moment.
Enjoying what is around me...
rather than letting my mind wander
to unproductive thoughts of
past or future.
I keep my camera close at hand so that I can share
particular sights and moments with you.
I have had enough life experiences, now, to realize
that you cannot change yesterday....so why fret over it!
Tomorrow never comes....so why worry!
(Everything in my life that I have ever worried about
is behind me....and I lived through it all....
so why did I worry?)
All I will ever really have is this moment right here and now...
so why not make it a clean one!
Here's to clean minds and clean pastures!
