Comments on a Rookies Enthusiasm or Where Did the Love Go?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Frank Verna, PA 602495

I didn't intend to post anything this morning. I was responding to another blog about how to find your enthusiasm you had when you first started in real estate. As I began my response, the following kind of fell out. It's not Frost, Whitman or evne Suess for that matter, but it reminds my why I got in this crazy business, for a better life for my family. Hope you like it. 

Imagine the feeling on Christmas morning
as I spied all those presents under the tree 
What surpises awaited, what joy it would bring
Cause I knew each of them was for me.

If I could bottle that glee
If I could hold on to that joy
If I could regain the feeling
I got from each and every toy

Then what success could I find
What goals could I achieve
No could stop me
I would always be happy

Then something happened
An event I did not forsee
It would change me forever
Like a light that would always shine on me
He was 8lbs 6 ozs, my bundle of joy
I would do anything for my little boy

So there you have it,
When I need to find my joy
I rush hone to my family and
I play ball with my little boy

Frank, GREAT Post! I know how you feel. I coach my son' s t-ball team. I have to say I don't know who is having more fun him or me. This is what really recharges my batteries.

Frank, you didn't need to be Frost or Seuss.  You did an awesome job capturing "Frank" and what you are feeling.  Love it!

Just goes to show you that we all have different reasons for doing well in this business and everyone needs to find their reason. Babies are good reasons!
