Summer-summer sings a siren song at this time of year.
In the middle of summer, swimming and kayaking and sailing, it's impossible to believe that the earth will soon freeze and snow appear. In the middle of winter, I simply do not believe that it will ever be possible to jump in the ocean by choice, ever again. What is that about...this inability to imagine "other"?
A good idea to remember that unhappy things do not go on forever, and neither do happy events. We can hold positive things in our minds and hearts, though, and that will carry us through. Wise writers, philosophers, psychologists have all reminded us that if we smile, even when we don't want to, that our mood will elevate.
In real estate, a market like any other, full of ups and downs, with nothing static, it's good to remember to remain positive, and to look for the summer-summer moment in the midst of any downturn. What did Thales, that savvy Ancient Greek have to say? One never steps into the same river water twice.
