Be in the moment...

It’s been a number of months since I’ve posted anything… business has been-- busy!

In spite of the economic news our business has been flourishing. Many of our friends and clients continue to pass my name out to their friends and family, and for that I am very grateful. Being busy is a good thing… I think.

Over this past week, one of our dear colleagues lost her husband suddenly at a very young age to a massive heart attack. I’ve been thinking a lot about her and her children. I wrote this short email to our team and I thought I’d like to share it with all of you:

Susan and I are headed to the Cape for the next few days.

Some of you have asked if you could help with my business while I’m gone-- thanks, I think I’m all good. As always, I’m proud to call you my colleagues and friends. I may reach out to you individually if something unforeseen should arise.

I thought a lot about Vicki and her family this week…

I challenge each one of you (along with my own personal challenge), to stop and be in the moment as much as you can, especially with the long weekend approaching next week.

Be in the moment…

It sounds so simple and yet, there’s always a bill that needs to be paid, or a client that needs our attention, or something in the house that needs to be cleaned of fixed.

Be in the moment…

Give that gift to yourself for a little while… for the weekend… a day… or just a couple of hours… or even just a moment.

Peace and Happy Fourth of July!
