Back from Vacation, God is it good to be back !

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

All it takes me is an overseas trip to a third world country to start realising my blessings and thanking God for them. I would highly recommend all the pundits going crazy with their" The US is going down and everything is bad" negative raaga to go visit a far away country- that would show them what a great life we have here.

 

Why are we, as a society, becoming a bunch of whiners and complainers? I know when you lose your job, or your healthcare  or lose anything else that is important to you- the tendency is to cry about it but somewhere in the crying we forget to count our blessings.I just got back from India where people living in the cities are breathing the most toxic air, drinking the most infected water, living in abject poverty( or living in complete opulence), sleeping on the streets in the extreme heat or cold- yet they go about without stress !! This is the one thing that amazed me because at some deep level there is the confidence that things are ok.

When I landed at SFO, I almost kissed the ground !! I thanked God for bringing me back to my family, where I can breathe fresh air, see the blue sky, live in a beautiful environment, drink clean water and have 24/7 electricity and water !! I am not here lecturing anyone but sharing my thoughts and experiences- People, PLEASE be positive and thankful,things could have been worse. Do not forget the art of compassion for one another and do not lose the respect for one another. Life is good and will get better.

Wow I surely touched a raw nerve with you ! I am not insulting the country where I was born and I do not see any reason for you to insult me. I came back from Delhi and if you turn a blind eye to the ills that affect that country, I cannot. There are toxins in the air that cause diseases. India will remain third world country till they improve their infrastructure.THere are a lot of places in the US( as you described) that are equally bad but looks like you have not learnt to appreciate the beauty of the country which we have adopted.

Also,I have a right to express my opinions and I do not see how my selling homes in Windemere has anything to do with the blog post. I am tired of people like you who do not know how to be respectful to others and there are a lot like you in this part of the world.

I have beenout of India for 23 years and have been going back every year.Yes India is now supposedly the lifeline of the global economy but you forget that the advancement has happened due to the foreign investments in India. If it were not for countries sending their money and jobs to India, our economies would be doing a lot better. We just made the Indian politicians obscenely rich- not the ordinary hard working people who live in that country. If we bring that money and jobs back into the US, we would be a richer economy and heck I would be honing more of my skills selling overpriced/foreclosed homes in Windemere.L Wow, it seems like the woes of Windemere are all my fault ! Windemere Resident- you left India and came to live in the US and make money here- why don't you think being a contributor in the Indian economy?
