As I have been journaling and analyzing my goal, I started thinking about times when I did go outside my box and take a risk. The number one craziest thing I have ever done in my life was buy my horse, Sadie Mae.

I am excited to see what happens this month, what crazy thing I will do next, and what awesome things lay just outside my box!
And just so you all can drool at my beautiful horse, here she is!
