December 6th: what is the best thing about yourself?

Advent calendar flap number six: what is the best thing about yourself?

I am not very good at giving myself compliments so I think this is an exellent mental exercise for someone like myself. 

I know that I am smart and that my imagination is great but I would like to think that I am good at other things too. More important things. 

I think that the best thing about myself is that I care. I care very much about other people’s feelings, especially the ones I Love. I really hate making people sad or angry and I am very bad at just letting someone stay angry. 

I cry at the end of all my favorite movies and would easily sacrifice myself for someone I love. Our horses are no exception. 

One of the bravest and perhaps dumbest things I have ever done was when my mom’s horse Nipeta was in a very scary trailer accident and I climbed in the trailer to get her loose. Complety crazy, I know, but it thankfully saved her life since her neck was wrapped back by a halter that did not brake and both of her back legs were stuck up in the air. 
To be honest, I think I couldn’t tell you if I did  it out of love for Nipeta or for my mom since I know how much they both mean to each other. I don’t know. Perhaps equal amounts of both. All I know is that I wouldn’t have done that unless I cared. 

I think I maybe care too much sometimes for my own good since I still after a year can’t talk about Silver without the tears pushing behind my eyes. Nonetheless, what I love about myself the most is that I care.

  1. Love the horses and love your story. Care until It hurts! You may never get the same consideration in return but it makes you a better person just for doing it. Your like me, you’ll jump in even when it’s crazy and that’s OK.
