Home is where your refuge is – where your people are – the ones who support you and nourish you even though they know everything about you.
If you are ever feeling overwhelmed just give yourself a gentle reminder that you are enough just as you are.
Only look back to reflect and be grateful for your adventure thus far. Don’t regret anything, every step and stumble was necessary to get you where you are today.
I came home today to find a magic little box with this adorable glass goat inside. I hope y’all are lucky enough to have a community, neighborhood or village that feels like family.
Take a moment today and think about something you are grateful for – think of someone who sacrificed on your behalf or an experience that changed your life for the better.
Just so you know going forward this week that you are worthy and deserving of happiness and joy. I hope you have an amazing week ahead.
It’s good to own your own weirdness and celebrate your unique you, but also those who get it, appreciate it and stand by your side.
The best way to put your best face forward is to love yourself inside and out. Start your day with some positive affirmations and let your heart shine. Accepting and loving yourself will inspire others to do the same.
Do something this weekend that sings to your soul. Spend time with people who make you feel free and eat some good food. Whatever you do have a wonderful couple of days.
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.
