Sometimes you just got to hit that Pause button and that is just what I did for the last several weeks. Don't get me wrong, as a REALTOR® you are never really OFF (and I like it that way) but one can choose to slow down a bit or be forced to on occasion.. as I was.
When I got the news that one of my very close family members was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease, I hit that PAUSE button, long and hard. I didn't hesitate to pack up my kids, hop on a plane and be where I needed to be for a month. And I am so glad I did.
Technology can often be a curse but for a REALTOR® it is a true blessing. There I was, thousands of miles away, negotiating contracts on two listings and preparing for a new one to hit the market (stay tuned!) all while spending time with the people that make my life whole and my heart full.
I've been back for a few days and busy with my exciting new listing. I promise, pictures will follow very soon - of the listing and my trip. But before I share more info, I wanted to take this opportunity and remind you all to go ahead and hit PAUSE.
And don't wait for bad news to pour in or tragedy to strike.
