As I reflect back on the past week, I can point out things I’ve accomplished, things I regret, and I can take it all and turn it into a lesson for myself. This past weekend I was at a multi-state rodeo in Columbiana, Ohio. I competed probably the best I have all year. In the first round I placed second in breakaway and in the top 5 in barrels. I thought that after a knocked pole and a no time in goats that day that I was out of it for the weekend all around. But the next day I won breakaway (and with my first 2 second run also), placed second in barrels, top 5 in poles, and second in goat tying. I ended up winning the breakaway average for the weekend as well as the weekend all around for the senior high girls. I think what changed for me before Sunday was that I just went out and had fun doing what I love, instead of beating myself up for what didn’t go right. But while my weekend was amazing, I’m still a little disappointed in myself for the week. Overall, I felt like I had little to no motivation. Almost every night that week I would wait until the last minute or the morning to finish homework, even though I had a lot less than normal.
