We all have an inner voice – make it a goal this week to set your inner voice to being your biggest cheerleader and well of support. Talk to yourself the way you would speak to someone you deeply care about.

Make sure to remind yourself that you are amazing!

I completely forgot to celebrate Goat of the Day’s first birthday, which occurred on October 1st. I am a bit stunned that I have managed to carry on posting my goat photographs everyday for now over a year! The majority of these goats I have had the pleasure of meeting and photographing in person, with a few exceptions of when friends have met and photographed goats and sent them along, and a few famous goat portraits that float around the internet.

This feat would not have been possible without my friends who think of me when they see goats, nor would it have been possible without my partner who has patiently driven me to places where goats reside, or accompanied me to events where we will happen upon goats and who supports my daily habit. Also, this blog would not be possible without my mother who generously gave me my camera that has been hard at work photographing goats since the summer of 2019. I am also grateful to all of those people who read this blog, for whatever reason, who like the posts and give me a follow. I hope to continue to provide pictures of goats with good vibes for at least a while longer. To that end, I revisited one of my most favourite places in all of the England, Buttercups Sanctuary for Goats. I urge you if you ever find yourself in southern England to spend an afternoon among the friendly goats in their caprine utopia.

Many, many thanks to Buttercups for keeping these amazing creatures and allowing the public to enjoy

Every now and then, challenge yourself to be vulnerable. You never know, it could be the start of an amazing relationship.

Make eye contact and make a new friend

If you are lucky enough to find yourself a weirdo to be your friend, never ever let them go. Especially if they enjoy your unique brand of weird too.

Life is too short to be like everybody else.

I don’t know about ya’ll, but often I feel like I am the odd one out. Fear of missing out, or FOMO, sometimes can cause me a lot of anxiety. Take a step back, appreciate the moment and be in the now.

Sometimes it’s better to not be amongst the herd.

Benefit from the support of your tribe!

Sometimes you just have to find your opening and sometimes you have to nudge it open yourself. There is always a way forward, even if sometimes it feels like it’s going to be a tight squeeze.

Seriously though, you can do it!

We are all members of various communities – neighborhoods, professions, age sets, and thing we are enthusiastic about. In some ways, being a member of a community is one of the the things that makes us who we really are – and without the support of our fellow community members, life would be much less interesting and far more difficult. It is wonderful to feel as though you are a part of something.

If you are reading this, then you are a member of the caprine appreciation community.

There are those people in your live who have the uncanny knack to always pick up right where you left off as though the time you spent apart never happened. I miss a lot of my friends, especially my best friend of over twenty years. Luckily, when I meet up with her, it’s like no time at all has passed. She’s an amazing, brilliant lady. I hope she has a fantastic birthday.

Friends forever through all of life’s ups and downs
