I tend to work seven days a week in my profession as a Realtor. Partly because it seems to be one of the demands of this particular industry, but also because I really enjoy this career I have been blessed with. Coming to the office allows me to focus my thoughts, organize for the upcoming days events and just take an overall look at the direction I want for the new week.
However...sometimes I forget to stop and just take care of myself. While trying to balance a busy schedule, attempting to get back into a routine at the gym and making the contacts neccessary to conduct business it seems that I sometimes forget to take the time to just stay healthy. Last week I got hit with a cold. The cold morphed into bronchitis and culminated with a 102 fever. Why, I ask myself, do I need to go to this extreme to remember to slow down just a bit and enjoy my health and the life that I am so fortunate to have?
It is a beautiful sunny spring day this morning, and while I am busy at work, it is my intention to allow for breaks and some fun time. I have a lunch date with one of my favorite lenders, Julie Ogle and this too will be a bit of a break from the ordinary.
Moral of my story? I guess it is that no one else will make me take care of myself, so I better get with the job myself.
Have a great day!
