If you made a resolution that you have found difficult to keep be patient- changing habits take time. Shift your focus to long term success and don’t worry about being absolute and strict. Achieving goals comes from persistence over time, not perfection.
And so here are the last few hours of the 2010s. The decade for me certainly has had its ups and downs, and I am ready and excited to welcome whatever comes next. In celebration, I have compiled the ten most popular goats of the day from 2019 – which includes two sheep who were featured on April Fool’s Day. I hope wherever you are that you have a fantastic New Year’s Eve and that the new decade brings you peace and prosperity. Thank you for continuing to indulge my hobby of goat photography.
Is there something you hope to someday accomplish? Imagine if you started working towards that goal now where you could be at this time next year! If it’s worth it then don’t hesitate to get started – if you wait until everything seems perfect the chance might skip you by.
There is a saying that “Rome was not built in a day” which is absolutely true! It took over a millennia from Rome to expand from a city on the Tiber to an empire reaching from the farthest corners of Europe across the Fertile Crescent and Northern Africa. Most likely, your goal is probably not inter-continental domination, so luckily whatever it is you are trying to accomplish won’t take that long, so keep at it. If it is important to you, then it is absolutely worth the wait.
In addition, today’s goat is a friend of a friend of mine. Her name is Cindy and judging from her easy grin, she quite likes October so far.
The tools to success aren’t always military might and a big budget, but rather patience and perseverance.
Last weekend’s harvest moon has really got me thinking about nourishment. As the seasons change, sometimes so do our priorities. The back to school vibe of September is a great time to check in and figure out what best fills you up – nutritionally, emotionally, even spiritually.
Be full of hope and gratitude this fall
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.
Comfort zones are good places to recharge and rest, but eventually it is good to break through. Although it is tempting to stay, we grow and experience more when we allow ourselves to be uncomfortable and challenged.
Go for it – something amazing is waiting for you!
Keep reaching – you’re closer than you think!
There is always a way through the obstacles
If you are confused about how to answer this week, try just saying yes and see what happens. You never know, it might end up being an amazing experience!
Just say yes this week, it might be amazing!
Two years ago, I was spending some time on the internet (to be honest, as I do everyday). I came across the most magnificent collection of portraits photographs by Kevin Horan, published in the Guardian. This was before the Goat of the Day blog, perhaps even before I thought about specializing in goat photography and understanding the connection between positive vibes and goats. I was totally inspired, and many people have shared these photographs with me since. One of the best parts about starting Goat of the Day is that people share the goats they come across in their lives or on the internet with me. So, today’s goat of the day comes courtesy of Kevin Horan and the Guardian. I hope that you all find inspiration somewhere this weekend.
Meet Lily, the goat of the day. Maybe one day, I will be so lucky as to take goat portraits in such a setting.
