Then Things Changed...
Then Things Changed... There were times when the changes I made in my real estate life were more about refining what I thought worked or didn't work instead of redefining my business modus operandi.
While we understand change is inevitable, it is not always treated as a welcome visitor. And speaking of changes, a big one occurred in 2017. I survived a stroke and a heart attack just prior to Christmas that year as I have mentioned in the past. Yes, my life changed a lot when I fully realized the impact of this event. Certainly the next year and the year after seemed to follow a similar course of many changes. I definitely don't want to participate in any pity party so I moved forward.
Deliberately. Other times it was seemingly slower despite my impatience. Weighing options. Checking alternatives. I have previously addressed some of the changes I experienced in 2018.
This past year, I joined a monthly Stroke Survivor Stroke Group. It's not a big commitment of me or my time and so far the involvement has been worthwhile although I am not typically inclined to join groups of any kind. I still believe in the power of listening.
I also started some classes geared for those with an acquired brain injury in the Fall of last year. Although not therapy, the two classes I attend are taught by instructors who are trained in physical and occupational therapy. Learning remains an important part of life for each of us.
Life continues to be a work-in-progress and I am well aware of that but this is just a part of "me". It doesn't define me and hopefully it allows others to be aware we are more than any one aspect of life regardless of any challenges we may face.
