Just Rolling Along

Thursday, November 17, 2016

One of the challenges for the 5% challenge this week was to blog everyday. I am finding it difficult which is surprising to me. For a few years, I did blog every day because my life was in a lot of turmoil. I had quit my job teaching, had to take JC out of training, lost my mom (and along with that my siblings), began a new career in real estate. It was a lot to deal with at the time.

Having to do this blog everyday has helped me realize that life is good right now. Since that time, JC is back in training and showing. We moved to a new house which is in a wonderful and safe neighborhood. I have been successful as a real estate agent and built a nice business.

I have learned to deal with the ebbs and flows of life. I see my sister once in a while at horse shows and she still doesn't speak to me or my kids and that is her loss not mine. However, my daughter is riding horses and enjoys it and it has given me back a sense of family with the horses.

Real Estate has its busy times and its slow times and I've learned to adjust things around those times. When it's quiet, I can go to the barn more often and we plan our trips. When the Spring market comes around, it is all hands on deck. It is absolutely insane.

I don't know if it is because I have gotten older and wiser or what, but things just don't get to me the way they used to. I have learned to "roll with it" :)

    I think we take it for granted when things go well. Unfortunately we tend to talk more about negative things. It's just a new behavior to learn - blogging about positive things. I've noticed on SP that negative blogs seem to get a lot more comments though. Maybe we can change this. emoticon

    Great advice! Baby steps, over time, truly help us run the race we were intended to run with greater confidence and wisdom. We tend to grow the greatest during the most difficult times. Now, enjoy the fruits of your labor! Hug, hug! - Evelyn
