An escrow officer partner shared a nice story/meditation today, written by Don Miguel Ruiz, Jr., about having fun.
How when we were young, it was fun to pretend to be a grownup acting out a job.
But, somewhere along the way, we forgot that it WAS fun. Life is full of responsibilities, but we CAN HAVE FUN. We can choose to enjoy.
This made me think back to my own growing up. I remember a weekend, (we had MANY such weekends) where we went out cutting down trees, hauling and burning branches, cutting firewood, stacking the truck and coming home, where I said, "Well, that was Fun!" We used to heat our home with our huge fireplace.
But, boy did that phrase haunt me through the years, as we'd get up on a Saturday and our parents would say, "Come on everyone, we're going to go have some FUN today."
We still laugh about it 45 years later.
The point I meant was -- we were all working together, accomplishing something, acting as a team --and it WAS fun. Darn hard work, but fun as well. It's the focus.
Work CAN be fun - and it STILL is, thank God. I love my life in Real Estate, and I love hoping folks with their Real Estate goals and dreams.
Call me -- let's have fun!
