( I know animated pictures on AR are not everyone's favorite, and I promise not to post them often, but I just couldn't resist this cute little guy. Doesn't he just make you smile and help you let the stress melt away? PETS RULE! )
REALTORS like many other professionals, often times have difficulty relaxing after a long day's work. Many times, the stress of making or not making a deal can just about push you over the edge........ if you let it.
It is a proven fact that pets help to relieve stress. Growing up amongst the dusty corn fields of Indiana, my parents taught me the value of having pets and making a committment to their love and care.
That committment to my own pets as an adult has helped me through the years as I've occassionally battled the stress of full time, real estate management. Our pets are part of the family....often times getting more leeway and authority than they should, but nonetheless, we couldn't be without them and they help us all to relax and remember what is most important in our lives.
So if you are considering a pet, please don't take it lightly.
Do some research before you make the step. Finding the perfect breed for you and your lifestyle will make your transition into pet ownership enjoyable. Once you've selected your new friend, select a name that fits his or her personality. If you have trouble finding the right name, there are several internet help sites for pet names.
Also PLEASE consider making a trip to your local pet shelter or Human Society to adopt one of the fine, furry friends who desperately need a loving home. You will be glad that you did....in more ways than one................ PETS RULE!
