Appreciation – “The recognition & enjoyment of the good qualities of someone or something.”
“A full understanding of a situation…”
It’s acknowledgment… gratitude…. recognition. It’s giving thanks.
Today for the #WARiderChallenge is a follower appreciation post. This can be dedicated to a friend, a supporter, a follower on your blog or anyone in your life you would like to thank for their support. Here is why I chose this theme today.
Wild Atlantic Rider is now 4 years old. The idea started while I was living in Dublin and was reconnecting with an old college friend, Natalie, who many of you all know as @insidetrackeventing
It was Natalie who first said “you should start a blog.” At first I wasn’t convinced that anyone would be interested in it, but Natalie believed in the idea. From there WAR was born.
From then the WAR world, although small, has expanded and I have been introduced to so many lovely people, from here in Ireland & from all over the world. It’s given me exciting opportunities, reconnected so many of you who knew & loved Giselle in Pre WAR years & I have endless cherished & documented memories with friends.
WAR has also been an outlet for me to say the things I want to say, to put it “on paper” & as a result, connect with people who feel the same way.
WAR is only here as a result of the support & interaction of you, the WARiders who follow along to hear the daily antics of Solas, Miss G and young Luca.
The messages that I receive on Instagram and here on the blog always bring a smile to my face & I want you to know that we appreciate every one of you, your messages, interactions and genuine interest in the lives of the WAR Horses. Especially Solas – cos his devious streak has often led him to be despised by many in “real” life 😂
I fear I am going to forget someone because I am a featherhead like that but I have tagged a few people who have been here since the start on my Instagram post, to let them know I appreciate them 💙🌊
So today for your Sunday Smile Post, share a little appreciation around, or simply comment below and tag someone if you want them to know how much you appreciate them.
Happy Sunday all!
