Hello and Thank You for joining me today! I'm Todd Picconi, Broker/Owner/Realtor at Todd Picconi Real Estate....and want to share some secrets to overcoming obstacles in our every day lives!  I've gratefully been closing real estate transactions for over thirty years, and come across a multitude of life situations.  Some of the best ways to handle certain situations is through the study of Stoicism. Today, we will be turning our attention to a message that came from a Greek Philosopher, Epictetus. Epictetus was a stoic, who taught people that their key priority should be to live life in accordance with nature.This is the first in a three part series about stoicism....AND I had not an intention to write a three-part series when I was setting up my "Quote of The Week".  This is much more ...

Good Evening!How do cats or any animal for that matter, know when we need help?  They are so intuitive.  I heard or read, that cats can see your energy.  I think it's true.  It wasn't from the source linked in the word "read" here, but it is the same idea.It's almost like they see your spirit, right?  I believe that they can.  Most animals I think can.  That's why horses and humans have such amazing connections, same as dogs and humans and cats and humans.   Well, tonight, as we wait for 11PM feeding time at home for my cat, Spirito, out of nowhere, he started playing and brought his mouse to me...and started fussing with it right in front of me.  I quickly picked it up, and started throwing it down the hall.Spirito took off and caught up with his "mousey" and started rolling around on ...

“You know you’ve reached middle age when you’re cautioned to slow down by your doctor, instead of by the police.”  JOAN RIVERSThis quote is by one of my favorite comedians, Joan Rivers! Any other fans? What was your favorite part about her? I loved her tenacity and drive, and lastly, her sincerity and intelligence. She made you think about where you were in life laughing so it was easier to figure out how to get out of where we were, or not to make mistakes...and of course, she made people more popular by joking about them. Do you have a favorite Joan Rivers Joke?I hope that you enjoy it and keep on bringing it for whatever you are up to today! HAPPPPPPYYYYY FRIIIIIIDDAAAAAYYYYYY.God Bless Your Weekend.

Eating two pieces of wheat toast with peanut butter, especially if it's low in sugar, can be a nutritious and satisfying part of your daily diet. It provides a good balance of carbohydrates, healthy fats, and protein. The Costco Kirkland organic peanut butter typically has minimal added sugars, so that's a positive choice.  Two pieces trumps three...that was just for display purposes.  Yah, right! *Sometimes I'll add jelly! (shhhhh)However, the portion size and overall context of your diet matter. If your overall daily calorie intake and portion sizes align with your nutritional needs and goals, then having two pieces of wheat toast with peanut butter can be fine. Just be mindful of portion sizes to ensure you're not overeating.It's also essential to consider your individual dietary req...

Here's a little Monday motivation to kickstart our week!  Winston Churchill once said, 'Success is not final, failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.' In the world of real estate, I've seen both highs and lows, but I've always believed in the power of perseverance. Every challenge is an opportunity to grow, and every setback is just a stepping stone towards success.So, whether you're buying, selling, or simply navigating life's twists and turns, remember that it's your determination and resilience that truly matter. Let's face this week with courage and make it count!

Once upon a time, in a realm known as Harmony Valley, there existed a diverse community of beings. They hailed from different walks of life, each with their own unique beliefs and customs. Among these beings were the Seekers, who believed in the presence of a divine force that connected all living things.  In Harmony Valley, a great wall of partition separated the inhabitants from the divine realm. This wall, called the "Veil of Belief," was said to separate the beings from the divine presence. Many had accepted the existence of the Veil, but the Seekers were curious souls who questioned its purpose.  Among the Seekers was Lila, a wise and gentle deer, and Kavi, a curious and quick-witted squirrel.  Lila had spent years meditating by the Veil, pondering its meaning, while Kavi's sharp m...

Upon a road both long and steep, I journeyed forth, my promise to keep. A path of health, a quest anew, To willpower's strength, I'd remain true. Unhealthy temptations beckoned, oh so near, But I stood firm, dispelling my fear. No more indulgence, no more delay, I vowed for wellness, come what may. With each passing day, my posture refined, A testament to the strength of my mind. Shoulders back, chin held high, A transformation beneath the sky. Determination fueled my fight, Banishing the darkness, welcoming the light. A journey embarked upon with glee, To a happier, healthier me, I decree. Resolute decisions, a purpose so clear, Shunning the doubts, embracing what's dear. I chose to embrace the nourishing truth, Rewriting my story with vigor and youth. And as the days turned into weeks...

As a dedicated Realtor in the picturesque landscapes of Southern California, I've always been captivated by the profound ways nature interacts with our living spaces.
