You Know but You Don't Have to Share

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

As we age we do notice changes to our physical beings and our attitudes will inevitably change too, but not always as we expect. My body is older and I know it. My mind is sharper and I am kinder than I once was. Because I am aware of my mortality I am doing everything I want to while I can. It is freeing to be able to accept what I can't change and invigorating to  do things I would never imagined even ten years ago. 

I am pretty open about my frailties, but you don't have to be. You can share or you can be anyway you want. I was generally arms length when I was listing and selling in earnest but now I don't have to worry. There are always surprises. I choose to embrace them.

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.

Good morning,  Sheila - a new year or a new day and change is a part of the scenario.  While we may not like or embrace it, ignoaring it is futile.

Hi Sheila,
I soooo agree with you!  I have often said I find the aging process very liberating. I've probably even written about it. Aging does have it's challenges too, which makes us even more aware of doing what we can while we can.   I have some significant physical limitations which most people don't know about because I manage them and try not to get myself in situations where they become a problem.

I admire your adventurous spirit!

Like William Feela not only am I too old to hold a grudge, but half the time I can't remember it anyway. Plus we learn that we get further by being kind and gracious than demanding.

Sheila,

I would highly recommend a Qigong class.  We both feel that much better than we ever did, and to start with we had no complaints whatsoever...we are in great shape and do not take drugs of any kind.  A

It's hard to know how much to reveal to a client about our personal lives.  With some I am an open book.  Others, my gut tells me to hold back.

Sheila Anderson - I am not a betting woman but I would bet that you will live a long and healthy life. If you don't mind, I'd like to tell you a story. While visiting my daughter, there are many people 80 years and older who continuously climb the mountains and hike the hilly terrains on a daily basis. Meanwhile, I was always the one (even 15 years ago) who lagged behind, huffed and puffed. In Switzerland, it's their culture and an individual's expectation to stay healthy. 

I can't help wonder if Americans under the influence when it comes to mortality, prescriptions, and over-the-counter drugs. I thought it was interesting.

I couldn't have imagined the person I would turn into as age crept up like an univited guest.  But, it has simplified my life considerably.  I don't fret over the small things as much.

Morning Sheila.

I know I have limitations, compared to what I could have done in the past.  Change is good, I may not get there as fast as i once did, but I will get to the finish line
