Motivational Monday ~ You Too Can Be An Explosion of Blooms

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899

My kids and grandkids sent me these gorgeous white roses for my birthday. They are the same variety my Gene use to send me and are so fragrant! Their blooms exploded today and I couldn’t help but think how we can all explode with enthusiasm and energy if we just make the effort and think positive thoughts! Life is too short not to be the best we can be.

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”

Maya Angelou

Hi Dorie Dillard CRS GRI ABR I do think that's the message many, many folks want to hear and follow....

We can all explode with enthusiasm and energy if we just make the effort and think positive thoughts! Life is too short not to be the best we can be.

Hi Anna Banana Kruchten Arizona's Top Banana! 


I agree..so much negativity around we all need to take a deep breath and get centered again!
