OUTSIDE THE ARENA
A BLOG WRITTEN BY Heidi M. Foy
One thing I've noticed about "adulting" is that there are some similarities to elementary school. Reagan is just starting the 5th grade. Her days are getting harder- 4th was the year we transitioned from learning to read to reading to learn. I didn't know it, but that...
No we can see a future and the possibilities of starting to build our own legacy. In the trenches it was hard to see any path of saving and investing. We were so caught up in the daily grind and monthly spend- too much month and not enough money that building a legacy wasn’t even in our vocabulary. But. Now. Our conversations have changed.
There was a lot going on during this time. When I think back on it now, it seems like a haze. A fog. And it was a successful year…and I’m really not sure how!
osh and I are both licensed real estate agents in the state of Wyoming. He has had his license for nearly 6 years and I got mine in October 2019, just about the same time BFC took off and the world shut down. He has been dabbling in real estate while building a superb remodel and construction business as well. It finally came to a point where he just couldn’t do both- at least not do both justice. I had never considered real estate but it seems to suit me well. Oh and, I have Bullfrog Creatives.
How do I explain to you that the reason I’ve not written isn’t really reason at all? Listen, it’s not that I didn’t think about coming back here, I did.
In early March when the COVID shutdown started, I really just wanted the time to pass quickly. The longer it lasted the more quickly I wanted it to just be over. And, now that it actually has gone super fast, we are already smack dab in the middle of the fall season...
So, here’s the trick- they are LIVE. They are real. They also have my kids in the background- well, because that is what was, and sometimes still is, going on. LIVE, is easier than pre-recorded. I can’t be me in the prerecorded scene. I can, however, be real authentic when it is live. Perhaps a little too authentic, at times. Once I got the tech down for that I got to thinking that it would be super fun to bring some type of content to this platform, too. One post from a college coach about doing an info-mercial and I was off on a whole new tangent here on BFC and that is where my passion project began.
Perhaps my biggest challenge now will be to sit back and watch her learn from someone else. She may not learn what I want or how I want, but she will be learning none the less. And, she may not even want to continue with horses. That is where I have to remind myself, whose dream is it?
One thing I noticed was that not much had changed around there- everyone comes, eats and ropes and stays to BS afterwards. Really the only thing that felt like it had changed was me. For the past several days I was saddened by this acknowledgement.
