Yes, It's Different

But

I Have Become More Acquainted With Change

Each And Every Moment And That Continues

 

Yes, the world is experiencing a lot of changes but that's not that much different than in years past.  When it comes to time we might include centuries, scores and decades as we look at change.  We know it can happen in a moment as well occuring over time.   It has been that way for as long as people have been on this planet. 

 

There are things that happen in each of our lives that combine knowledge, preparation and various decisions. Even when the unexpected happens, how we react makes a difference. 

 

Ethical decisions

ensure that everybody's

best interests are protected.

When in doubt, don't. 

                                                                  Harvey Mackay

 

Of course, this quote can lead me to thoughts of "best interests".  This pondering isn't just child's play.  Especially when kids and the future is a part of the discussion.

Hi Michael- change happens ...always does. Often the change can be welcomed, sometimes not. Stay true to your core beliefs and move on.

I love that quote "when in doubt don't". I hope more people stop think and analye before they act (react).

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® - while change may be difficult to embrace, there must be a suitable physical distancing substitute that can apply, right?   

Kathy Streib - being true to oneself should be easy.  

Jane Peters - there is a lot to be said for thoughtful review prior to proceeding.

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, CRS - there are many examples that fit within that range.  

Rebecca Gaujot, Realtor® - mothers often seem to know  the right thing to say.

James Dray - that seems to be a safe "bet".

When in doubt, don't go out... that's a saying here at the beaches, as it can be deadly to go out in big surf.

Business took a temporary vacation and has returned Michael. Being ever thankful for what is before me is necessary to be able to accept change while moving forward with confidence again! Am worried about my children and their little ones and how the horrific national events of late will affect them, however.

Michael, hope where you live, you are not in danger with the fires in your area.  We have a few, and REALLY smoky in Denver.  Cannot see the mountains.
