LIKE A CHILD IS HOW I BEGIN THIS NEW YEAR!

Happy 2013 world! 

The sun is shining brightly and the air is crisp and clean.  It is not only a new day but a new year too. 

I found myself doing something this morning that I would have done outside if I were still a child.  Instead, as I waited for the coffee machine to grind and then brew my rich, steaming cup of Cooke's Coffee (Chez Piggy blend)  ((locals will know exactly of what I speak!) I found myself stretched out, on my back, in the recliner we moved into the kitchen for my Mother's comfort.  (I'm allowed to use it when she's not in it!)

As I contemplated life and what this new year had in store, I found myself gazing up through one of the three skylights in our kitchen.  Two of them were still covered in ice and snow from our recent blizzard, offering no light of which their name promises.

However, the one nearest me had a small patch melted by the sun.  As I was lying there, I started to watch the fluffy white clouds drift by the bright blue patch of sky that I could now see.  As a kid, I could spend hours watching the clouds and daydreaming of all the exciting things that lay in wait for me.  Whether it be in a fresh green field, or on the dock at the cottage, maybe on a floater in the lake?  No matter where I found myself, I enjoyed all the possibilities.

Fast forward to today, the first morning of 2013 . . .

I am excited about being with my new Brokerage:  Sotheby's International Realty Canada.   I'm looking forward to

I have many new clients, eager to move onwards and upwards.  Buyers have been booked for showings all this week.  New Sellers have been set appointments to get the best professional photos possible (weather permitting) which is so important in presenting a home for sale.

Floor plans are also something we like to provide for our Sellers - makes it so much easier for the Buyers when they're searching on line for their next home.  Each of my new listings will include this in 2013.

I am also excited about the new enthusiasm I'm seeing and hearing about revitalization for our humble little town.  People are now understanding that we can survive, but not thrive, on tourism alone.   Yes, we are The Gateway to the 1000 islands, the World Famous 1000 Islands but we need industry, manufacturing, new businesses to keep this town ticking!  It is going to happen and I fully believe 2013 is our year!

So tell me, what are you dreaming about? 

What are you going to make happen in 2013?

You do know that what you think about, you bring about?

First and foremost, let's all be happy and healthy this year - look after yourselves mentally and physically!!  And then, get ready to make dreams a reality!!

Join me please in making 2013 our best year ever.  It will be kind. It will be gentle but it will be fierce too!  Let's Rock kids :)

Nice post!! Happy New Year and best wishes for the future!! I, also, look forward to an exciting new year of climbing up another rung or two on the ladder of success in Real Estate.

With the past economic slump we must not look back at our disappointments, but charge forward with enthusiasm and confidence!! We may stumble and face more challenges but we never know if we don't try!!

Cheers,

Betty
