I haven't talked about points in a long, long time. Perhaps because I took some time off from blogging and fell behind. I remember thinking I would never, ever get to a million points, but this post should put me right over the edge, obtaining a long forgotten goal I had. Or perhaps it was more of a desire.
Somewhere along the way the points stopped mattering to me. The relationships became far, far more important. Some of the people have disappeared, with or without explanation. They have left a hole in my life, I wonder if they realize how much they mean to people they never met in real life! Many are still here, still teaching me how to be a better agent, some inspire me personally, some of you make me laugh my ass off! And some I have shed a few tears with and for.
Now I set my cap on the 2 million mark. Imagine the things I will learn, the new friends I will make, the laughter I will share and the tears I will shed through the next million points. Never mind the clients I stand to gain!
Blogging here is so much more than the accumulation of points, so much more than a marketing tool. I am grateful for getting to know all of you, for the special place you hold in my heart. And of course I am extremely grateful for the knowledge I have obtained from all of you.
I can't help but think of Jack Nicholson in the movie "As Good As It Gets". I know, I have to tweak the quote, but other than the fact I am not a man, it really fits here.
You make me want to be a better man person!
And I thank you for that.
