Money: If Wishes were Horses… — Relaxed & Forward: AnnaBlakeBlog


This post from Anna Blake, is hands down, one of the best  I’ve read about the balancing act between horses (or any pets) and money. As someone who is self employed, I’ve always faced the conundrum of either having no money, but time to ride or no time to ride, but enough money to have my horses. I’m also lucky to be married to someone who helps me carry that burden.

Just when you get comfortable, money goes worthless. It can purchase a horse, but it has never been able to buy relationship and skill in the saddle. Horses are the great equalizer; you can’t buy the ride. Or the other priceless things: freedom, friendship, and self-esteem.

If money is a vehicle, it’s still up to us to steer it.

 

Lottery winners and philosophers tell us that money doesn’t buy happiness, but it’s more complicated.
