Ready for a Laugh?

So I scrolled back and took a look at my goals for last year.   Bwahahahaha, if your were feeling bad about missing any of you goals check out my success rate: 0%.   Seriously I laughed out loud when I read this.
1. Do solid novice with Diva....Nope
2. Show and probably sell Bridger....not yet
3. Ride Mojito...I guess that happened for a while...nuff said
4. Attempt to keep hands in pockets when it comes to new horses...SOOOO happy I failed at this.

Hopefully you guys are enjoying this as much as me, seriously have goals ever gone so miserably wrong with such (mostly) great outcomes?
Goal fail = best thing ever!
This blog has been a great success so far, last year was my second year of trying to blog consistently and I jumped from 45 followers to 72!  10,000 page views to 35,000!  I want to create some info graphics, any tips on good sites for that?

Now onto new goals:
1. A regular review column
2. At least 2 posts EVERY week
3. Update look
4. Keep content varied and interesting

1. Yesterday I already talked about financial stability
2. Live unapologetically
3. Focus on the joy
4. Better eating
5. More fitness
Just keep smiling

1. Sell Bridger
2. Sell Diva
3. Regular lessons

I think that I will to some subsequent posts that breaks some of these goals into component parts.

Here is another post from last year when I was making plans: Epicness.
So not all of those things happened either, but again I'm ok with it.  I think that often goals are to motivate us through the miserable winter months, they are not always based in reality.
Dreamy P-diddy in the snow
And one more laugh for you: How can we forget the hubby attempting to blog?

Possibly one of my goals for the blog should be posts that actually have a point?  Nah!


  1. Things work out how they're meant to and I think Prisoner is huge proof of that!

  2. Posts are supposed to have a point? ;)

    Goals are for great for some people. I prefer to aim low and float through life. I am never disappointed!

  3. I think rambly posts are often the best posts. Oh and I just used PicMonkey for my stats post, I'm waaaaaay less fancy than Tracy and Lauren.

  4. Love your posting style & am with you on the rambling posting bandwagon.
    Although compared to my pathetic offering today this is structured badassery i mean there are numbered bullet points, links, photos & underlining - not to mention goals!!!
    This is far from a rambling post lady! ;-p

    Best of luck achieving your goals, may 2015 be your best year yet. Shine on sparkle sister ☺

  5. High five to a fellow 0%-er! Life for ya!

  6. LOL this is awesome!!! You make failing goals so much fun. I love your attitude! I'm glad you had a great year and I hope 2015 is even better!

    For your blog update goal can you make a page with horse stats (name, age, breed, etc.). It makes it easier for new people joining your blog to know who is who. :D I'm looking forward to following along on your adventures this year. Happy New Year!!

  7. Great goals for 2015! I'd rather have some big goals and not meet them then have no plans for myself (which is exactly what I've been doing for a few years...that's changing in 2015!).

  8. Prisoner takes Fail Horse to a whole new meaning. Best goal fail ever!

  9. Super equestrian blog! Why not come and post it for more followers at Haynet, the UK's No1 Equine Blogging Network? Come on over to

  10. lol you definitely win at the best goal fail!! Prisoner is pretty much the shiz and i can't wait to see what 2015 has in store for you two!! and if that comes in the form of more frequent posts - even better!!! good luck :)

  11. Yup. Good thing you have friends to peer pressure you in to goal fails. ;-) Can't wait to see what you guys do this year!
