We Can Get Through This

Real Estate Agent with Long Realty - Dove Mountain, Marana AZ BR564219000

For the past three weeks, I've been watching videos, seminars, meetings...holding a few myself, and reading books. Well, outside of cleaning my house, taking long walks, anticipating grocery store pickups (big highlight) and fighting depressing thoughts.

Let's face it - we're all human, and we all struggle.

I wanted to share something I read today out of Rick Butts book, The Big Butts of Life.  (Get off your excuses and do big things!)   

Just a few pages in, he has a highlighted quote, 

"An excuse is a universally accepted lie about why we don't do something we want or ought to do".

Whoa....I'm pretty sure I'm great at making excuses...how about you?

Four weeks into my self-distancing, trying to AVOID making excuses, I must say that focusing on others has been instrumental.

A client friend lost his wife over Thanksgiving and we "made a book" together.  He provided photos and I put them together with some words of my own.  He was surprised and delighted and I know my Mother will love this blooming Mother's Day present. (link to facebook share)

I called a local business that just got over a road closure of 2+ years, and now is dealing with the shelter-at-home challenge.  I ordered several dozen cookies with a happy message,  shown here:

I've been trying to utilize all the small business vendors I can and just started a campaign to promote them on Facebook.  

Growing up a moody little thing, my mother often preached that the best recovery from my own thoughts was to think about others.

No excuses, No reasons why something can't be done.  Just do your own thing.  Reach out.  Show your world you care.

We can get through this.
