I am excited to start bringing you weekly Real Estate tips again and if you have read my articles before you will remember I like to throw a “Feel Good” piece in from time to time. Since this is the beginning of a fabulous new year I thought I would start us off with something from my heart.
I was prompted to write this after a friend that I greatly admire asked the question via Facebook, “What has been your best part of this year so far?” Of course, she got a variety of answers but what surprised me that some could only think of something bad. It made me think, surely, no matter how tumultuous, there must have been friends that would rise to the occasion and at the very least with an exercise of faith to share a spark of hope. I have learned that in a state of gratitude the good things grow and the other negatives fade away or at the very least become less dominant.
Not sure the exact time and space that this attitude of terminal hope came upon me in my life but for whatever reason through prayer, quiet time with God, the compassion of amazing people I have come to believe that there is good inherent in ALL things. I have learned that whatever state that I am in that is meant to be to take me to the next level of my life.
Simply…. I learned to be thankful in the valley.
I love everyday in every way because if I am seeking that which is good I will find it in the worst of circumstances in every situation. The worst of times have shown me the greatest love of others and it has taught me the strength that can only come of that experience. So for me there is NEVER a bad day only different days with different ways to learn about love and its impact on me and my world and the lives of others. That is my truth and my day and my year so far in a nutshell.
I will see you next week but until I do please remember, “The only people we need to get even with are those that have helped us”
