Silver Lining...Stay Positive
Updated: Apr 17, 2020
Top of My Mind
Good Morning! I am taking this opportunity to change our newsletters and share a little of going on in my world, bring you news that is relevant and enjoyable, and to keep you updated on Real Estate. So, I hope its a fun read!
It seems every day I flip the channel or ask Alexa…"What's going on in the news this morning"…there is worldwide panic!
So, Let's change the tone and start by thanking all of our physicians, nurses, police, postal service, and even the cashier at the grocery store who are moving our essential businesses forward and protecting the public during this period of continual transformation.
Thank You and Bless all of you who are keeping us healthy!
It's starting to seem months have passed (*Little More than 30 Days) and the only noise I'm hearing these days is SBA funds are tapped, businesses are shutting down, or my wife is telling me I'm typing to loud from our shared home office. I know it could be hard to motivate yourself or even stay positive when you are at home stuck by yourself or hearing a bunch of negativity on the news.
Remember, it is times of weakness when there is always a silver lining. Like right now when I'm sitting at home typing this newsletter, I'm thankful that my beautiful wife is sitting next to me and we get to spend this time together.
Life in quarantine is teaching us many things about ourselves, our family, and our business.
The one thing I would like for you to soak up is the moment is to spend time with your family and be positive.
Get off the Couch and go for a walk.
Turn off your phone and cook with your family.
Take this weekend to spend some time with your family…stay positive…stay healthy. "Sunshine is the best disinfectant"
