Remember "Row, Row, Row, Your boat"???

Real Estate Broker/Owner with INTEGRITY REAL ESTATE 19755

Remember the children's song "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" from when we were children? The thought struck me this morning that we can actually equate this to Real Estate or life in general. If you are going "down a stream", you can sit back and let the boat go meandoring slowly by itself, but the song says, "Row, row, row your boat" which gives you more momentum and direction. Although you will get to "somewhere" eventually, it tells you to "row", three times it shouts: "ROW, ROW, ROW"! And it says "merrily" not fight it,procrastinate, or become "grumpified" (is this a word?--should be!). "For life is but a dream." Too short to focus on negativity, to short to let the boat slowly meander. Also, remember that we staggered our stanzas and everyone was at a different place at different times but going down the same stream---rowing.

Remember Row, Row, Row today---Life is but a dream.

Have a great one!!!

You are so right Treva, and I vote for "grumpified" as a word!  It expresses the condition so well!

"Grumpified"  - love it.  I'll have to remember that one.  Nothing happens without some work behind it.  Thanks for the post.  ...

Off to row, row, row.....

"Grumpified" it is then. Going to make a t-shirt, no "gumpified" people allowed. I'll send you girls each one and we will have to pick a day to wear them to the office. Hummmm, will that go over???

Hey, Treva. I see you haven't been Playing in the Rain with us for a couple of months. Hope all is well with you and that you're really busy, but that you'll also be back soon to Play in the Rain with us. We miss you.

Great little post with some positive inspiration in it, even though I hated that song as a child.
