Waiting

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

Much of my life is spent in waiting for something to happen, show up or be revealed. Next week I will be celebrating my 70th birthday. My Father never made it it this far and my Mom didn't live much longer either. I am not taking anything for granted and after a tough couple of months I have decided I am not waiting anymore if there is any way to avoid it. 

Some things are beyond my control, but frankly most are not and so it is my time to just get on with it. I am lucky to have enjoyed a lengthy and successful career or two, and so I am not letting any grass grow except that which I plant myself.

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,

That impatience gene is with all of us.  Today, we have to be home for UPS because we have to sign for a wine delivery.  Quincy is not old enough to sign for wine.  We do have Cox (our Internet provider) that keeps their word on appts and often calls ahead to say, can they come now (earlier).  And like Barbara Todaro said, it costs more, and worth it become what is at stake is one's health...and a bargain when you look at the medical costs.

It is never too early or too late to celebrate a birthday.  I applaud that you are starting early...one should celebrate all month!  A

Hi Sheila, Entering each milestone year gives us time to ponder.  I would suggest that time should be used to celebrate your life. It sounds like you are on that path.

I am exactly the same age as my mom when she passed. This is the first moment it has come into my mind... ( I had to calculate it!)

I don't even think about that. I just keep on keepin on!!

Hi Sheila- I'll have my 70th in September!  The other day I was talking to someone who is just a few years older and not happy in her marriage. When I asked how she was, she said "I'm just biding my time." Yikes, I said...For what!!!!  I love that you plan these wonderful trips each year!!!! Go for it.

Morning again Sheila.

My family has a history of not making it to their 70's.  I'm very careful to know what my body is trying to tell me.  Never miss a doctor's appointment

Hi Sheila, 70 is the new 50! Seriously, Bernie is 72 and is amazingly youthful in appearance and his actions. This silly aging game, it's all in our heads and some serious mismanagement of societal expectations.
