The Friday Edition With Patricia Feager

By
Real Estate Agent with DFW FINE PROPERTIES 0506509

 

"Fear is the main source of superstition, and one

of the main sources of cruelty. To conquer Fear is 

the beginning of Wisdom." --Bertrand Russell

 

Bertrand Russell was a British Philosopher, logician,

mathematician, historian, writer, essayist, social critic, 

political activist, and Nobel Laureate. 

Born on 5/18/1872; Died 2/2/1970

 

 

Throughout history, many people believed that Friday the 13th was bad luck. Superstitions have been circulating around the globe for a very long time. You will notice that on this elevator panel located at the Hyatt Regency in Austin, TX, it does not have a button for the 13th floor. I noticed it for the first time last month when I was in Austin for the TX REALTORS® Winter Meetings. Whether you believe the superstition is true or false, in order to prescribe to authenticity, in my opinion, after studying the works of Bertrand Russell, one ought to learn to live their life in a rational and logical state of mind. Happy Friday the 13th to all!

 

Today, I find fewer and fewer sellers utilizing a Dining Room to dine in for meals. Yet, when homes go on the market, I am amazed at how many beautifully staged dining rooms I see. For buyers, this could be confusing. It reminds me of when I would visit relatives who used plastic covers on their living room couch. It was nice to look at, but as a child, I felt they were being fake and not authentic. When it comes to design and staging, authenticity and logic is a work in progress. Buyers would be wise to visualize their life style and not feel intimidated by professional staging and decor they could never afford. A house is not always about fashion but more about the logical reasons why you want to buy a house and what you need and could afford.

 

Fear can stop you in your tracks. Fear is often the reason why people don't succeed. Fear may result in unintended consequences. I find the best way to shake free of the herd, is to challenge yourself and ask good questions. Look for the logic and be reasonable. Naysayers aren't always logical. Bullies are full of it. Many fears and superstitions are irrational and unreasonable. Try re-framing your fear with success and confidence. Many fears and superstitions are merely ideas. I am naturally excited when people succeed. 

Today is Friday, the 13th. Did you complete your Census Survey? It was easy and quick for me! Follow the link above. Don't be stumped when they ask you for a code. I didn't receive one and was able to complete the survey without it. Follow the instructions.

If I've ever seen a time of fear, this is it. Timely and well thought out post. Got our Census in the mail yesterday. We'll fill it out this weekend.

Take care!

Good morning Patricia. The number 13 does not bother me. It was my son's jersey number in high school by his choice. Enjoy your day!

Good Morning, Wayne Martin - It doesn't bother me at all either. I was surprised to see there was no 13th floor in that elevator and waited for a good reason to post it and talk about.

Happy Saturday!

Hello Patricia - there are those who monetize fear and fakery.  If we look back in time, that seems to be a part of life.  For some that is how they choose to "operate".  And for others there are those who live in a happier place.  Still others enjoy and stand by a more realistic approach.  The "world" however one defines the "whole" is comprimised of many parts. 

Your Friday edition of your thoughts once again allow us to think not only what we "see" but we experience in all of our senses and some that may go beyond the sensory "arena".

Happy Saturday! Friday the 13th was great - I got my hair "fixed" and spent a few hours talking to some wonderful ladies at the hair salon. Stopped at the store which was not crowded, and got to chat a bit with the cashier and another lady on line. It was supposed to snow but did not (again - this has been a mild winter so far). So Friday the 13th is not scary in my book!

Great commentary on the silly fear that surrounds Friday the 13th, Patricia. Fear is an emotion that doesn't lead to good decisions. I'm one of those people you can't "fool" about a 13th floor if it's clear that from #12 we go to #14... that 14th floor is the 13th floor whether we call it that or not.

Michael Jacobs - I think it takes guts to be you and show your skin and not be afraid or live without fear. I just don't believe in that old black magic. I feel bad for those who are hampering their ability to live fully because they take interest in superstitions beliefs and wives tales.

Kat Palmiotti - I always enjoy meeting new people in Montana. I found them to be down to earth, very earthy and real. I guess that's why I always felt right at home there. You definitely fit in well!

Happy Saturday!!!!

Nina Hollander - Isn't that crazy about the 13th floor in hotels! My room was on the 14th floor and many of the meeting rooms were on the 1st, 2nd, or 17th floor. For as many times as I rode the elevators, up and down, I never thought it took any longer riding between the 12th and 14th floor or beyond.

Yesterday was a very tough day for us, but it had nothing to do with the 13th, it was just a cooincidence. We had to say goodbye to our beloved Mac. The pain is too great right now to elaborate further. However, Friday the 13th is just another day.

Hi Patricia, I know you are not going to believe this but I completely missed Friday the 13th.  I was too busy thinking about something that has been in the news lately, I'm not sure if you have heard about it, the Corona virus??  I am so thankful my pantry, fridge & freezer is full and I don't have the "fear" I am going to run out of toilet paper! I'm sorry I had to throw all of this in. We should not live in fear, perfect love cast out all fear. Thanks for always having interesting post! You are appreciated and loved!
