I'm Baaaack!

Real Estate Agent with Scott Owens Limited

Some of you may have noticed that I have been particularly quiet over the last two months, due to circumstances beyond my control.  My apologies to those of you whom have been loyal readers of my blogs, and also to those of you whom I have promised my support in the way of regular comments.

After a two-month absence from the Rain, I am happy to report that I have returned to active duty as a Blogger and Commenter.  My circumstances have not changed, but I refuse to allow something that cannot be changed affect how I live my life.  If I think about it, AR may actually help me through this time in my life by being the positive and encouraging atmosphere that I know it is. 

What changed my attitude?  Every year I set 100 goals for the improvement/enhancement of my life; this year was no exception.  I was reading over my list of goals tonight, and I came across the following two: 1) Write 50 AR blogs and 2) Submit 500 comments on other AR members blogs.  I had not remembered writing these goals, but when I saw them on the list, I realized how much this site has contributed to my mental well-being and my outlook on life.  I wish I had remembered this earlier...

Thanks again to all of my AR friends...looking forward to a great 2009!  The promised blog updates are on the way!

I am soooo glad you are back! I have missed your wacky zany off the wall sense of humor. Your blog was one of the first I read when I joined AR in September and I look forward to reading your posts in the future! Now get blogging my friend....you have a lot of catching up to do!!! Also, you need to join Facebook. There are a lot of your AR friends there, including me.

I am on Facebook; check your notifications for my friend request.  I have rewritten my update blog twice already, but am not happy with the end result yet.  Hopefully by Monday.

Scott, welcome back. I read a few of your blogs and they are very good. I love the picture of the dog.  The first year I wrote down my goals I lost them and a year later I decided I needed to do it again. Wouldn't you know it I found them. I had 56 goals and because I had written them down I was surprised to see I had completed over 30 of them even with out the list. There is something about writing a contract with yourself (Goals) that is very powerful.
