New Normal

Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart SA561034000

I keep hearing people say that everything has changed. That all the things that we once considered normal, are now a thing of the past. That we have to look forward to the future as a time for change and accept our "new normal". I don't really feel any different today, when I look in the mirror I basically look the same as I always have. Aside from wearing a mask in public and maintaining a social distance, I really don't understand what this "new normal" is all about. It seems to me that we have overcome larger challenges in the world and have managed to get through them just fine. We as human beings are very resilient. Many things will change because change is inevitable. What good would living be if there was never change. I have come to accept that change can be good. So let's be good earthlings (we are still on Earth, right?) and embrace change. Let's make something good come from all of this.





I have my days where I sit and wonder where I fit in and what I can do to improve myself.  I have to say I can be a bit of a dreamer but isn't that the way change comes about? Dreamers change the world, and they change it for the better. Forrest Gump, tells the story that if you don't know you can't do it, then you probably can do it. First start with a vision (The Big Picture), then set up a plan. The vision comes from the heart, and the mind creates the strategy to make the dream come true. You can't have one without the other, unless you're just plain lucky. Without determination, consistency and conviction you will never get anywhere.







We live in the land of opportunity, where we can be whoever or whatever we choose to be. We can make changes happen simply by applying ourselves. Wake up everyday, get dressed and welcome the day with open arms!







Hopefully there will come a day when all the world is at peace. Hatred will no longer be a part of the norm. We all accept each other for who we are and what we believe in. We talk to each other instead of at each other. Express our feelings with love and show compassion for people in need. Be better people in our heart, fill our soul with kindness and live our lives in harmony. Now that the kind of "new normal" I could wrap myself around.







Ahh, but I guess for now we just have to continue living our "normal" as we know it and put our best foot forward to making good changes that will impact our community in a positive way. I may be just a speck of life in a huge universe but I have a passionate heart and that heart is here to serve you with your real estate needs. So if you have a home that you want to sell, it doesn't matter where it is or the type of structure it may be, I will price it to sell and...

Vinicio- I love your post!!!  I too feel that while some things are different- wearing masks, physically distancing- and yet many before us and in other countries have gone through much worse. We are strong and can adapt. It's so important to be positive and write positive posts just like yours.

Hi Vinicio, thank you for your positive outlook. You're right that somewhere along the way we've forgotten how to talk to one another. May we remember soon!

Hello Vinicio - "normal" like so many things in life seems to exist on a sliding scale.  Not necessarily looking for the "new" but the "next" is just around the corner. . .    Each and every day.

Interesting photos!

Some things are different in the way we operate on a daily basis now, but our desires/hopes/dreams are the same as they were. We just have to go about things a little differently.

Enjoy your day!

GREAT post.  Words of wisdom and great photos to tell the story.  I appreciate your dream of everyone getting along.  Hearing all of this unrest is unsettling.  I can't imagine living in those cities and being fearful to go outside!  I appreciate your positive spin on things!

I made a change to adjust to the new normal. I traded in my Subaru 4WD for a new commuter vehicle.

Yes there will be permanant changes in society--and our personal lives--as a result of the pandemic.  I hope I live long enough to see them in place. Life would be boring if there were no challenges.
