These are fighting words...

Rocky Marciano was one of the toughest fighters we have ever seen. He ended his career undefeated, but he didn't end his career without being hit hard and knocked down. He won 49 fights. He was knocked down twice. He was powerful. He was relentless. He was a dominant force of nature. He was also unpredictable in a sport that demands unpredictability to succeed.

I’m going to be very honest with you: March and April felt a little like fighting Rocky Marciano; it was a bit hard for me. I don’t mind telling you that because I think it is important to admit when things are challenging. The real measure of character is revealed by asking: what do we do when we’re challenged?

Typically, I’d say that I try to rise to the occasion and come up with a plan for how I’m going to forge ahead. However, given the uncertainty we’ve all been feeling, I think that we all need to pause, reflect and get back up.

Why Pause, Reflect and Get Back Up?

For that ... we need Rocky Marciano again. After one of his two knockdowns, he said, "I was on my face. I heard the count from one to 10. I kept telling myself that I had to get up, but I couldn't move. I couldn't make myself move. It was the strangest feeling." He paused, he felt the feeling of getting knocked down and then he got back up.

During these last few months, as many of us shifted our lives to working from home, schooling from home, eating at home, playing at home and we started with a plan. Most of those plans changed quickly and then quickly changed again. And then something wonderful happened. We pressed pause and got back up and many of us learned to live in the moment.

We started to improvise, substitute, innovate and adapt. We cooked with ingredients on hand. We stayed home and tried to flatten the curve. Life is noticeably slower in a surprisingly pleasant way.

So, when our opponent is tough, we get tougher and I remember to let my plans go and adapt to become stronger than my opponent, which I realize is often myself. This is what it means to be resilient. And perhaps it is resiliency that is the most important as we get up and continue on.

Are you taking care of yourself?

“As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.” - Maya Angelou

We are living in a time when other people need our help. As demands increase on your time, energy and resources, I’m wondering are you also taking the time to tend to yourself?

“Taking care of myself doesn’t mean ‘me first.’ It means ‘me, too.” - L.R. Knost

Self-care is any activity that we do deliberately in order to take care of our mental, emotional, and physical health. Although it’s a simple concept in theory, it’s something we very often overlook.

Now more than ever, good self-care is key to improved mood and reduced anxiety. It’s also essential to a good relationship with oneself and others.

Self-care means knowing who you are and having an awareness of your limits.

Self-care means recognizing when you are doing more than you are used to, and trying to figure out the best way to maintain your well-being so you can continue to be a resource for the people you care about.

During times like this, it is important we remain connected with the people who matter most. If there is any way I can help you, please let me know. I will make time to provide my skills and expertise to you in the best way possible. Or we can just connect.

One More Day

If you could spend one more day with a loved one already departed, how would you spend it? What would you do? Mitch Albom became fascinated by this question while writing the book, For One More Day.
Albom found time and again that people wanted to spend an ordinary day doing ordinary things with the people they had loved. Almost everyone wanted to tell this special person, “I love you” one more time. Many said they wanted to do the habitual things they always did with the person, such as head to the movies, or eat at a favorite restaurant, or just sit around and talk about old times.

Albom learned what we yearn for is not something exotic or faraway – it’s connection. And realizing this, a “normal” day is something we should all treasure.
This year on February 29th you will be granted One More Day. I can’t grant you time with someone who is already gone, but I can remind you to do something ordinarily wonderful with someone you love today!

Happy Leap Day!

Happy Halloween!

Last Saturday we celebrated Applefest - our annual client luncheon at Carrabba's Italian restaurant. We had great food, face painting and balloons for the kids, swag bags and drawings for gift cards for the parents.

Some say I made a good pirate (I think it was the peg leg). It was so much fun and wonderful having clients come out to support this yearly event. Thank you all so much!

Is Your Home Smart?

Remember the Jetsons, that futuristic family from the popular ‘60s cartoon (you would if you were my age)? Their house had all types of neat gadgets and gizmos that you probably wished for in your own life. Believe it or not, today’s tech is making these “homes of the future” accessible now — and it’s more practical than you might think.

In this month’s flyer, we’re taking a look at some recent smart home innovations. You’ll learn what these are and why they’re starting to catch on in the “real world.” While the consumer should always investigate privacy, tracking and security by tech companies, I’m sharing a few of the latest products that will allow you to make coffee with a voice command or turn off the lights from the grocery store.

In fact, these kinds of smart technologies are actually increasing the value of homes, making them more attractive to potential buyers. Circle a few that you might want to include in your own home. Give me a call if you’re wondering what this technology could do to increase the value of your home!

The Not-So-Hidden Talents of Your Real Estate Pro

In a world where you can buy or sell a home with the click of a button, the work of a real estate agent becomes even more critical. Sure, you may be able to perform an actual sale on the web, but the extra perks an agent provides simply can’t be replaced by the internet. If you’ve ever worked with a real estate pro before, you know that this process is much more than just a clickable transaction.

To show you what I mean, I want to share a few of my “not-so-hidden talents” with you this month. These are some skills, benefits and knowledge I provide in addition to assisting you with buying or selling your home. You’ll also find a few numbers speaking to the high-quality work real estate agents provide for their clients. It is my hope you grasp a completely new perspective on what a great real estate professional can do for you.

I will always strive to provide you with an unparalleled level of service with anything you may need, regardless of whether it’s real estate related or not. Need a referral for a great contractor? Have a question about these topics? Reach out to me — I would be honored to help you.

Would you rather be a peacock or a pigeon?

Once, there was a happy little pigeon who lived at the edge of a forest. He spent his days in happiness and was generally satisfied with life. Then, one day he saw a beautiful swan.

“That swan is so white,” he noticed, “and I am more of a dull grey. That swan must be the happiest bird in the world.” He confessed his thoughts to the swan. “Actually,” the swan replied, “I used to think that I was the happiest bird around until I saw a green and yellow parrot. He has two colors where I am just plain white— I think that the parrot must be the happiest bird.”

Hearing that, the pigeon decided to go talk to the parrot. However, what the parrot told him confused him even more. “I lived a very happy life until I saw a peacock. Have you ever seen one up close? The peacock has multiple colors and is truly beautiful,” said the parrot.

In order to see a peacock, the pigeon had to visit a zoo and indeed, hundreds of people had gathered to see the peacock’s colorful feathers. After the people had left, the little pigeon approached the peacock.

“Dear peacock,” the pigeon said, bowing respectfully, “You are so beautiful. Every day thousands of people come to see you. When people see me, they immediately shoo me away. Surely you must be the happiest bird on the planet?”

The peacock replied, “I always thought that I was the most beautiful and happiest bird on the planet because people come from all over to see me. But because of my beauty, I am trapped in a display. I’ve watched the world around me and over the years, I have come to realize that the pigeon is the only bird allowed to fly free. Quite honestly, I envy you and think you must have the happiest life.”

Imagine the shock that the pigeon felt at that statement! We are not unlike the pigeon, however. We make unnecessary comparisons with others, overlooking our innate gifts. We let ourselves be saddened by what we don’t have, and it can lead to a vicious cycle of unhappiness.

There will always be someone who will have more or less than you; that is part of the hierarchy of blessings. Learn to be happy in what you have instead of looking at what you don’t have. The person who is satisfied with their own gifts is the happiest person in the world.
