Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

Any day can be special or awful: you get to choose. I believe that attitude is magical and turn almost any situation around. We all have stuff but that stuff is just part of life. I knew a woman who was esssentially homeless and I never realized it because she was alays upbeat and pleasant. Her capacity to be in the moment and do the best she could inspired me and still does.

When you think about real estate, it is time to focus. I have helped people for close to thirty years in all areas, and made the process not only simple but enjoyable. Why should you go it alone or settle for less? Call me and find a partner to help, direct and get you where you want to be.

Sheila- you make an excellent point.  We do have the capacity to choose how we handle and manage a situation.  Attitude is so important and there are times when I know I need to adjust mine. Have a wonderful Wednesday.

Sheila,

You reminded me of the guy who was in charge of the parking lot at our dry cleaners in Los Angeles.  He would make sure that if you parked there you were going to the dry cleaners or the shoe repair next door.  He swept the lot and washed it also.  He always had a smile on his face and a nice greeting for us.  It reminded of the Buddhist monks who sweep the front of the monastery until they get that this a good job just like any other job and they have an attitude transformation...then they are allowed into the inner sanctum.  A

People like that lady are so inspiring.  I have such a small comfort zone that it's hard for me sometimes not to be negative when I'm uncomfortable. I am constantly reminding myself how blessed I am and how much worse it could be...no matter the situation.

I recently saw a segment on television about an older woman, who appeared to have come straight out of the hippie age.  Although probably in her late 60s or 70s, she seemed bright, and had a vibrance about her.  I attributed it to her really positive view of life, although homeless!

That's a tough woman to be able to be positive in the face of being homeless.

Sheila, you are so right - your friend made the decision to handle her situation in a positive manner - she didn't want you to feel sorry for her.  I so admire that attitude and so agree that we choose our own path and attitude has everything to do with how we are viewed by others.
