On this Course called Change and Expand
Here it is Valentine time and I feel so blessed. This is going to be a year of love. It began with my quarterly meeting with my wonderful business coach, Joe. His personal growth assignment was to awake the super servant in us by embodying compassion, gratitude, patience, forgiveness, truthfulness, acceptance, and humility. So here’s to heightened awarenesses with all of them. Without them, love cannot bloom. Since it begins with me, I have to look at my relationships and honestly assess where I am at with all.
So I am practicing. Wrote a Gratitude letter to the one on the top of my list, Jo, and read it to her. That was good. Have this challenging tenant, and Compassion helped with her. What would I do if I was in her place, does anything about her actions and attitude make sense? Maybe, not, so Acceptance, and Forgiveness comes next. I had to be Truthful with myself, what could I do differently, what could I do better, what more could I do? So I am taking the actions to mitigate. So, first I have to Forgive myself, and then take the actions to remedy things, with the least amount of angst as possible. Hard to do, that’s where Patience comes in. I once again have to accept what “is” and have the Humility to learn from it.
So here we are approaching the day when we acknowledge Love, the Big ingredient under all of them. I celebrated Love last month with my annual Love Fest at Maggianos. My client family and I celebrated my making a difference in their lives and inspiring them. This “Real Estate Mom” gets to see my real estate family growing up. One of Real Estate kids I have known since 1982!. What a blessing!
So I want to continue to inspire and count my blessings. Today, blessed with good health, I walked 15 miles, preparing for my second L. A. marathon on March 9th. I am blessed with this wonderful mentor and best friend who is training me to achieve this goal. I am blessed with my grandbabies, one who at eleven years old is the only singer in a rock band. The little one, Carly, grows prettier and smarter every day.
So love is blooming in my home. What about you? How would you score yourself with these seven qualities? Here’s to new awarenesses and practice.
Love and blessings,
Happy, happy Valentine’s Day
Your Real Estate Mom
