As a REALTOR, our clients expect many answers. They want them accurate, they want them fast, and by the way you should know everything. Since discovering Google on the web, I don't know if you pull this trick off or not, but if you are unsure about the spelling of a word, misspell it into Google, and it will come back and say, Did you mean: with the corrected word or options of what it might have been. Very cool. With Google we now all know everything. NOT!!
I will tell you what I do know (the Realtor with all the answers part) doing so by way of an Arabian Horse story to illustrate it.
It is said that there was once a gentleman in the Middle East. His only possession that really amounted to anything for him, his wife and son, who lived in a little hovel, was a gorgeous Arabian mare. The mare was absolute perfection.
The neighbors always came by and said how lucky he was to have this one beautiful mare. He said he didn't know whether it was good or bad, he just knew he had this lovely mare.
Well, one night she broke out of the corral and when he got up the next morning, he discovered that she was gone. All the neighbors came by and said how terrible, how bad it was that the mare was gone. He said he didn't know whether it was good or bad, all he knew was that the mare was gone.
One morning about a week and a half later, she came back and had seven beautiful Arab stallions with her. She brought those in the corral with her. They were all smitten with her, so they went into the corral too. Now all the neighbors came by and said what wonderful luck he had. They said, "You have seven beautiful stallions along with your mare back." He said, "I don't know whether it's good or bad, all I know is I got the mare back and seven stallions with her.
So while they looked them over, the son decided to break the stallions so they could be ridden and they could sell them. One of the stallions threw him and broke his leg. So he was laid up with a broken leg. They didn't have those little pins they use now so you could get up and go. He was laid up with a splint.
The neighbors came by and said, "That's bad, your son has a broken leg." He said, "I don't know whether it's good or bad, I just know my son has a broken leg.
About this time the king sent his men through the area and took all able-bodied young men to send them off on one of his war ventures. The son couldn't go because he had a broken leg. The neighbor's sons all had to go. The neighbors came over and said how lucky the man was because his son didn't have to go because he had a broken leg. He said, "I don't know whether it's good or bad, I just know my son has a broken leg and didn't have to go with the Army.
So, the moral of the story is I KNOW I DON'T KNOW WHETHER AN OUTCOME WILL BE GOOD OR BAD, and I'm ok with that and you will never know for sure. It is a trusting of life that takes a little faith. A bad thing that has happened to you may be a good thing with a valuable lesson tucked inside. Maybe a tough experience will open a new door, make you sensitive to other people, or change you for the better. Allow it to unfold in its due course. Don't rely on Google for all your answers. TRUST LIFE.
