Take Time to Enjoy the Moment

Education & Training with Alan Kells School of Real Estate/Howard Hanna Real Estate

No matter how busy life gets take time to enjoy the moment.  That moment could be a child's hug or just a quiet few minutes without interruption.  For me I like to walk not only for exercise but to enjoy those quiet moments with myself and the beauty of nature.  

Lake Erie

Lake Erie is just a short walk from my home.  This was my moment to enjoy.

      Thirty years later I can say affirmatively that Real Estate has been a fantastic career.

Thanks for the reminder, Mary Yonkers .  Being in the moment is a constant struggle for me.  My mind has trouble shutting the work day off.  Have a great Memorial Day weekend.
