Riding Into My Next Phase of Life

I'm at the edge of 40 and looking towards my next phase of life. I'd like to enjoy the outdoors more. I'd like to enjoy a healthier body, achieve some horseback riding goals, and learn to absolutely LOVE ~me!~ I have 3 children (all teen or older), I have 1 doggie (named Winnie), 2 cats and I work full-time. When I'm not at work, you can find me reading, playing on my little netbook, or horseback riding.

You were wondering what to do about caffeine headaches. If you can stand it for a couple of days, just tough it out! Otherwise, if you were drinking a lot of caffeine, just taper it off a bit at a time and at least you won't be quitting it cold turkey! I must applaud you for trying to get off caffeine!

Thanks for your comment on my blog! Sharing before and after pictures is something I've dreaded and avoided for a while, so comments like yours make me feel that it is worthwhile!!!

Thanks!

Found this poem while searching for some motivation, hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Anything is Possible
By Unknown

If there was ever a time to dare, to make a difference, to embark on something worth doing, IT IS NOW.
Not for any grand cause, necessarily...
but for something that tugs at your heart, something that's your inspiration, something that's your dream.
You owe it to yourself to make your days here count.
HAVE FUN.
DIG DEEP.
STRETCH.
DREAM BIG.

Know, though, that things worth doing seldom come easy.
There will be good days.
And there will be bad days.
There will be times when you want to turn around, pack it up, and call it quits.
Those times tell you that you are pushing yourself, that you are not afraid to learn by trying.

PERSIST.
Because with an idea, determination, and the right tools, you can do great things.
Let your instincts, your intellect, and your heart, guide you.

TRUST.
Believe in the incredible power of the human mind.
Of doing something that makes a difference.
Of working hard.
Of laughing and hoping.
Of lazy afternoons.
Of lasting friends.
Of all the things that will cross your path this year.
The start of something new brings the hope of something great, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.
