Are you tired of just lying around just doing nothing?

By
Real Estate Agent with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Metro Brokers

MummyHas it been ages since you've gotten up and done something? Look at you. There you are, wrapped up in your own little cocoon; waiting for someone else to take the initiative and do something to get you moving.

Sure, you can stay in your little comfort zone, all bundled up in the familiar trappings of past history. Or you can rise up, cast off the old, take charge and try something entirely new.

It may take some doing to get those old bones active again, but stranger things have happened. It can take time to change the old ways of doing things, but time is the one thing that is certain to pass you by if you ignore your opportunities.

So dust off the old, and try on the new. Who knows? You just might find that there is some life left in you yet!

Richard, it used to be that I could lay around and do business in my sleep. Now, I have to actually turn off the alarm clock.

Thanks

Hi Richard!  I do need to get moving again.  I've been paralyzed by the enormity of my disorganization and overwhelmed with my son leaving for college.  The bigger my piles get, the more I ignore them.  It's getting monumental.  Maybe I'll do one room today.  Thanks!

I have a handle on your market!!!

In the Bible, Ezekiel tells the story about a valley of bones that were returned to life by the breath of God blowing on them and actually covering them with tendons, muscles, cartledge, blood vessels, and skin.  Yes it is possible to change the way we think about things and the way we do things.

Thank you for the good post.

There is a Bone valley in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, but I don't think it was named after the incident in Ezekiel!

Lori...

Well, being shipped from continent to continent is one thing, but at some point you still have to break out from your restraints! ;)

Well, that are from another time and place, that's for sure. I was wondering why I wasn't getting any action on this yesterday and then I realized just a while ago that I forgot to add it to any groups!
