Two steps forward, One step back
This has been quite a journey. I have just revised my goals and have meant to do it for quite some time. It doesn't mean that I failed, it just means that I have to regroup and revise, then go at it again. I am pushing and pushing hard. The way I see it is as long as I don't lose my passion for learning, I will succeed. The good news is that I am moving through the online training, slowly, but moving nonetheless.
Life has thrown some curve balls at me. On a good note, I have achieved my New Home Co-Broker designation. (I have been selling real estate in Los Angeles for over 30 years, OK, 33 years, but I decided 30 is where I'll stop counting.) I don't want to give away my age, lol.
Back to the designation, it is a different way to brand myself, a way no one else is using. Low hanging fruit, yes. So it's not like I went to school for hours a day, and for months. But It is a way for me to say that I accomplished something and I am always learning.
On the sadder note, my beautiful mother passed away a couple months ago. She was ill and aging, and we saw it coming. Nothing can prepare you for losing a parent. When it happened it knocked the wind out of me. All I could think of were things that I wanted to say to her and couldn't. Our family couldn't see her for a month because of covid. I think about her everyday. R.I.P.
Yes, this is a sad and happy message. But that is how life is. It's sad, then it's happy all in one day! And life is short, so I decided to make everyday count. To "just do it" like Nike says. And not worry about how well it's done but to just get out there and give it my all.
Be safe everyone, till next time.
