I never realized how much I touch people until this. People come into my model and I now greet them with... jazz hands.
We Have a great laugh.
FFS. Touch is my super power. A handshake, an elbow while we are walking through my model. So very hard!
What is harder?
I am considered “essential”. I deal with housing: no significant slow down in my business or in my city. We have so many people moving here...
I have a Toyota/Mazda plant I figured would slow down (it isn’t) as well as an army base that is supply chain and a crazy research park. I am thankful, do not get me wrong.
I was home for 6 weeks. 2 weeks of that? Thought I had it. Low grade fever after a girls’ weekend in Tampa. Body aches. I traveled on a plane March 5-7th. I stayed away and had my model home covered.
On third week / virtual appointments only. I think my national company decides They needed a revenue base. 1.5 Weeks ago / we got the order to be back in our models.
They gave us 18 hours notice.
I know it’s because we can carry the rest of our country for the company / we have the lowest rates in this region. However, I am 😡
I am thankful for my job. I make an incredible living now/. However. Everyone that walks through my model is from somewhere else. 10 minutes into a meeting yesterday, bitch told me she was a traveling extroverted nurse. Just got back from fucking Detroit.
She knew she “was okay” even if she was on “day 7 of a mandatory 14 day quarantine”.
I am a people-lover: I am starting to HATE people.
I enjoyed qualifying people from home. I had fun with my girls.
I find myself more than a few minutes late - And I find myself after a boring day, leaving a few minutes early
It’s been a while since I posted a question of the day. Today I came across this question in my news feed. It was too good not to share! Food for thought...
If I keep doing what I am about to do today for the next 5 years, will I end up with more of what I want or less of what I want?
Yey QOTD is back 🥳
This question goes to the notion of taking responsibility for oneself and your own happiness. I believe happiness can be a conscious choice and you can choose to view the world positively or negatively. Sure, life throws crap everyone’s way from time to time, no-one gets to swerve that fact.
Sometimes it’s stuff you bring on yourself, sometimes it is anything but. Regardless, you reap the consequences. However, you can choose how you respond and have full control of how you deal with it. You can capitulate into self pity and woe, or take the hard route and come out smiling.
I smile a great deal these days, and I have earned that.
Sometimes the cosmos hands us a big shit sandwich. Sometimes the choices of other people result in us getting a shit sandwich as collateral damage. Sometimes the choices we have made ourselves result in a shit sandwich.
One way or another, everyone gets a shit sandwich .... and if you haven't had yours' yet, rest assured, it's coming.
The thing is that however you got your particular shit sandwich, it falls on you to sort it out.
So the choices you make today are going to produce consequences in the days / weeks / months ahead. Just as the choices you made in 2016 have shaped your life right now.
The thing is that if you base your choices on what is in your own best interests longer term (even if those choices are very painful in the short term) then you can't go too far wrong.
Unfortunately there is rarely any instant gratification in the process of sorting out your own shit. Usually it is just a hard slog with the "rewards" off in the future.
But, soon enough, it will be 2026 .... and what that picture looks like will be driven by the choices you make (or don't make) today.
I have this theory that everything that is ever going to happen has already happened, like the present is just a particular spot on a giant DVD, we have no chance of affecting the outcome of things, what ever choice we make has already been made. We think we have free choice but we don't.
TO go along with that (not my theory) is that if we had to go back in time and change something, that wouldn't affect us but would create an alternate universe with a different future, which to me meands a new S+DVD would be created.

I once read that the greatest gift of Einstein was that he liberated us from the Newtonian deterministic universe. Quantum mechanics introduces enough fuzziness into the mix to allow any determination
Niels Bohr, even more so, as his theory of quantum mechanics was not easily embraced by Einstein. Einstein chastised the concept in a meeting with Bohr, saying G-d would not make a random system in the universe, to which Bohr asked, "who are you, to tell God what he can and cannot do?"
