One of the best parts about starting Goat of the Day is that my friends living in different parts of the world sometimes send me pictures of goats they encounter during their adventures. My friend Lena sent me a photograph of this goat in France on an island called Noirmoutier near a chévrerie where goat cheese is made. Although only bound to the pasture by a single rope, this goat was content where she was. Take a moment to find contentment exactly where you are – and remember a boundary is only as firm as you want it to be.

Sometimes you find yourself right where you want to be.

Going on holiday is meant to be a fun break from our normal routines, but sometimes such vacations can be quite stressful. Maybe consider when you are planning your summer adventures for having a short staycation – a holiday enjoying your own country or locale as though you were visiting there as a tourist. Or, you could just chill at home with a good friend. Either way, make sure you take set aside some time for some rest and relation this summer.

You can have a fab rest abroad or near home.

Rejection is just another step towards success. It may hurt in the moment, but if you keep moving you’ll eventually get there.

Everyone experiences, no one likes it, but it is a necessary part of the journey.

You can always tell when I really enjoy a meal, because I always end up with it either on my clothes or on my face. Wearing your food is a great way to show whoever made it that you really appreciate it. My six year old is especially great at showing his appreciation of foods by wearing them, and earlier today, I enjoyed a delicious avocado toast on locally made fresh sourdough with two perfectly poached eggs. Needless to say, the avocado ended up on my nose.

This goat really enjoyed some milk shortly before this photograph was taken.

One day, someone made a series of decisions to bring you into the world. A world that is full of chaos, challenge and unspeakable difficulties. But someone decided that it would be worth it to give it a go and bring you, yes you, into this world. Along the way, there were many sacrifices and unknown mountains to climb. First they gave you part of their body and carried you, and then risking life and limb, they birthed you into the world. Then, in your most vulnerable state, that person cared for you. They fed you, clothed you, socialized you, read you loads of storybooks repeatedly, made sure you had the right toys at the right stages of your development, and poured over information about how to ensure that you would grow up to be the best possible you. You weren’t always grateful and it certainly was not always easy, but here you are.

If you are lucky enough to still have that someone in your life, make sure to call them up and say Happy Mother’s Day.

Thank you to all the moms, their hard work and unspoken sacrifices
