It was quite a debate this morning over my subject matter. I thought about writing about my latest experience with a buyer. I thought about writing about the market, and how many calls I have had lately. But the biggest issue in my thoughts today have nothing to do with real estate, and I'm just going to go with my gut.
I have a Tony Robbins CD that I listen to in the mornings when I work out. If you are familiar, you know that there's a part where he says to speak out loud all the things you are grateful for. Then, anticipating that someone will be growling back, he says: "ok, WHAT WOULD YOU BE GRATEFUL ABOUT IF YOU WERE BEING GRATEFUL?" 2008 has been a very trying year for many people. If it has not negatively affected you, you probably know 5-10 people that it has. If you are finding it hard to be grateful, I'm here to tell you that you are not alone. One can easily get depressed and dwell in misery. I think we all have our moments. The key is not to stay there!
I would like to say that I am so grateful for Active Rain. Thank you to all of you who have made it possible. This is the greatest thing I have ever become involved with in my entire career. And the best part is that it's free! Thank you to all the wonderful people I have met through AR. Some of you have no idea that I read your blogs every day, and the materials and advice you have shared have been invaluable to me.
I was watching the news over the weekend and there was a story about a man with his 2 small children standing on the corner somewhere HERE IN AMERICA with a sign, begging for food. The man told how he had lost his job, and was looking for a job. No matter what your opinion of the man, the children should not have to suffer because of it. Then, the newscaster went to the next story. "Twilight" the movie made 70.6 MILLION dollars at the box office over the weekend. .......and children in America are hungry???
Please take time this week to extend a hand to a needy family. Call your local food bank, senior center, or church to find someone who is in need.
Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving with your friends and family.
