A To Z - L is for Learning

I love learning new things!  In fact I sometimes have trouble finishing things because I'm always moving off to the next new thing.  :)  When I was a kid I wanted to try everything.  I learned how to do a lot of different crafts like crocheting, needlepoint, latch-hook, decoupage, papier mache, pastels, watercolor, jewelry making, beading, sewing, making dream catchers, tie-dye, etc.

Even as an adult I love learning new things.  Here are some of the things I'm learning now...

American Sign Language - I posted about this on the first day of A To Z.

Equine Massage - My husband bought me a book on massage techniques for horses and I've been learning some of them for helping relieve stiffness in my horse.

Equine Fitness - I've spent a lot of time (off and on) working on my own fitness with running, intervals, weight lifting, yoga, etc. but I'm still learning about equine fitness.  How much is too much and how much is not enough, as well as what exercises work which muscle groups.  It's fun!

Patience - I'm always having to learn patience lol, but specifically right now I'm working on editing a novel I wrote during NaNoWriMo last year.  I love writing novels, but editing is so tedious, so yep it's a lesson in patience (and persistence).

Lots of different stuff on all of your A to Z posts!  Keep them coming!

Grief - It's been a month and a half since my dog died, but I'm still processing it.  I've lost pets before when I was a kid, but I always considered Storm my first dog because she wasn't just a family dog.  She's also the first one that I had to make the decision to euthanize.  It's been hard and I still cry for her at night when I can't sleep.

Staying Positive - I've always been pessimistic and prone to negative thought patterns so I've been working on learning how to stay positive!  It's hard work, but so worth it!

So what are you learning?


  1. A person should always be in a constant state of learning. The world of knowledge is a vast one.


  2. Love your blog and glad I found it from the A to Z challenge. I moved from the NYC area to a farm in Virginia in 2007. Big "learning curve" here, too!

  3. Yes that is a huge learning curve, but isn't it fun?? :D

  4. Love the diversity of topics in your blog. I really enjoy what you have to say.
