Surprising categories with show ponies


The longer I focus on using my stuff and turning my show ponies into work horses, the more I’m surprised that no category is safe from special items I want to save for later.

Stickers – this blog post was prompted when a page of stickers fell out of my journal this week. Simple, dollar store stickers, which I had used a few of, decided that was enough, and tucked the rest away for ‘later.’ You know how this goes, you forget about them, time passes, and you wonder what the heck you were thinking. Realizing this was a show pony, I changed the stickers to be kept with the ribbon, meaning whenever I open this notebook, I see the stickers and am reminded to use them. Since moving them, I have added stickers to 3 different entries. It’s easier to use something every day than once in a while.

The stickers that started it all.

Scrunchies – I love the scrunchie fad, and bought myself 2 new fun ones, yet kept reaching for my overstretched, beige workhorse. I put the beige one away and only gave myself the option of the new, nice scrunchies. It worked! I knew how far I’d come when my favourite workhorse scrunchy met its demise in a hospital laundry hamper (I forgot to pull it out of my scrub pocket). Realizing my mistake I immediately ordered the exact same one in a new colour, I know what I like and I used it right away!

Socks – for some reason I had a pair of white, wool socks that I was afraid to use because they were white. I couldn’t believe how ridiculous it was and decided psht, was time to roll them up and put them on. Now they are definitely showing their wear, but every winter I look forward to pulling them out and wearing them.

The intimidatingly white socks.

Workout Wear – I realized I was wearing my Lululemon tights for walks and lounging around the house and not for what they’re designed for – sweating. I decided this was ridiculous and immediately put them into rotation for my runs and biking to work. I loved feeling put together and suave in these tights. It’s so easy to protect our items from what they are designed to do. I was technically still wearing them, but I wasn’t enjoying them how they were designed to be enjoyed. 

This pattern repeated recently when I thought ‘I should keep an eye out for a zip-up sweater I can bike to work in.’ Then I realized, I own a zip-up sweater but for some reason, I thought it was only OK to walk and not sweat in it. After I saw this pattern repeating itself, I immediately started biking to work in it. Show Ponies can be sneaky, we can have rules for when and where we are allowed to use them.

Match Sticks– I was given beautiful, long matchsticks by my mother-in-law. Immediately my brain wanted to make all sorts of rules about when I could use them. Such as when I had 5 candles to light and could use the entire match… when do I have 5 candles to light? I realized that was ridiculous and any time I wanted to light a candle was a good enough reason to use them.

I continue to be surprised that no category is too small to contain a show pony. Our brain makes up weird rules of when we’re allowed to use something and then we end up not using it. From stickers to socks to scrunchies, nothing is out of the reach of being a show pony. 

Do you have any categories of show ponies that surprise you? How do you recognize them and how do you use them?

  1. I don’t know if it’s just me or if everyone else encountering problems with your blog.
    It appears like some of the written text within your content are running
    off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This could be a problem with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen before.

  2. I’m not that much of a internet reader to be honest but your blogs really
    nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your website to come
    back later on. All the best

  3. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you
    relied on the video to make your point. You clearly
    know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog
    when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

  4. Fantastic site you have here but I was curious about if you knew of any message boards that cover the same topics talked about here?
    I’d really like to be a part of group where I can get responses from other knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest.
    If you have any recommendations, please let me know.
    Thanks a lot!

  5. I really like your blog.. very nice colors &
    theme. Did you design this website yourself or did you hire
    someone to do it for you? Plz answer back as I’m looking to create my own blog and would like
    to know where u got this from. kudos

  6. I’ve been browsing online more than 2 hours
    today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good
    content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

  7. This design is wicked! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start
    my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really loved what you had to say, and
    more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

  8. An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I believe that you ought to publish more about this issue, it may not be a taboo matter but usually people don’t
    speak about such issues. To the next! Cheers!!

  9. Hello, I think your website might be having browser
    compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Firefox, it looks fine
    but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, awesome blog!

  10. Magnificent items from you, man. I have be
    aware your stuff prior to and you’re simply too fantastic.
    I really like what you have got right here,
    certainly like what you’re saying and the way in which you are saying it.

    You are making it enjoyable and you still care for
    to stay it sensible. I can not wait to learn much more from you.
    That is really a terrific website.

  11. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy
    reading your blog and I look forward to your
    new updates.

  13. This is very fascinating, You’re a very professional blogger.
    I have joined your feed and look ahead to in the hunt for more of your excellent
    post. Also, I have shared your website in my social networks

  14. I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog
    that’s equally educative and interesting, and without
    a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that not enough people are
    speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy
    I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

  15. Love all these ideas! Years ago I got over the “I’ll save it for a special occasion” and began using my fine linens for everyday. I enjoy them! They make me happy, and as they wear out I feel good that I used them as they were meant to be used. I inherited some things that my mother had that, as far as I know, she never used. WHY? She should have enjoyed them and not saved them only to die without ever deriving pleasure from them. You are wise at a young age! Keep up the good work.
