Posts Just For You- This Week at ActiveRain November 27 to December 3, 2022


Every day there is something to learn here at ActiveRain.  With this series, I try to highlight posts that gave me that lightbulb moment. It could be something techie, something about Real Estate or the other professions that I never knew, about a place, or about a person. Or, it could be a post that made me sit up and take notice!

Having a pity party? Read Nina's post and you'll realize we all have it pretty good.


RoyNovember 28: Roy Kelley Thankful for Multiple Opportunities

I loved learning more about Roy. He was provided opportunities and he continues to provide opportunities for others.


Thomas J. Nelson, REALTORNovember 29: Thomas J Nelson Grateful for the Struggle

Thomas is an excellent example of someone who has turned his struggles into gratitude. Much to be learned here.
