Frustrations.....

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

It happens everyday, to people everywhere. We get frustrated by things we just don't get and can not control. My car is in the shop for two weeks now and I can't make out why it is taking so long to get it fixed. My favorite pizza place has relocated and five days after the new opening was closed without even a sign in the window. The sidewalks in a nearby town are literally torn up with no safeguards or warnings. Frustrating.....you bet. 

So I made a decision, and I am simply resigning myself to let these things go. The car place isn't looking for my ire, the pizza place isn't looking to alienate its customer base, and the town certainly isn't looking for someone to get hurt. Sometimes things happen for reasons we can't explain. It happens in business, it happens in life. Does frustration beget anger? It can I think but it isn't productive or healthy, so I am not going there. A better day is here or will be. Let's go.

Hello Sheila, better days are ahear (I hope) in your area.  I know we had a great breakfast house just close down two weeks ago that was always full on Sundays after church, no notice.  We go with two other couple so now that last two weeks Sunday breakfast is at my house.   It is cheaper, I do not charge.

Hi Sheila... these are what I think of as first world problems and if we think in those terms and compare them to problems so much of the rest of the world is dealing with day to day you realize they are not worth sweating. They really are small stuff.

 It seems that most of my frustrations in life and business I can blame on the full moon cycle. At least I think I can, Sheila Anderson

I have learned there is a power in surrender!  That power comes in not having to do battle with every nuance of life that comes my way.  You gotta choose your battles and the hill you are going to die on!

Sheila I have learned over the years to not 'get my shorts in a bunch' about all the little stuff.  Let it go and think good thoughts and create something new and different. When one door closes another opens. Now I sound like  my MOM!!

Hi Sheila- you have exercised more patience than I would have with the car shop.  Everything else, however, is what we all consider the small stuff we're not supposed to sweat.
