Every single day I have a routine. Most of us do, right? We get up, splash water on our face, maybe sip some coffee, let the dog out whatever it may be that leads into the day. We all have a routine. My routine is specific and I think it leads me towards being the person that I am today and being able to do what I love.
Every single day, my husband, Drew, gets up about an hour before me, tries to be as quiet as possible, and then comes in and gives me a kiss. Then I sleep for like fifteen more minutes, and I get up. I let the dogs out, and then I sit down and write out affirmations about what I am grateful for in my life and I share it with a couple of my friends whom we keep each other on track with the things we’re supposed do in our day. I have done this every day since right before I met Drew, and I will continue because I know that it keeps me focused on the beauty, love and wonderful things in my life, as well as the things I know I’m supposed to get done. The first thing that I think of every morning is how grateful I am for all of the abundantly wonderful things that have come into my life; my husband, my family, my friends, my health, my home, my colleagues, my clients, my sweet-silly doggies, my freedom, my new opportunities. I think about all of the people I meet on a daily basis and how we are going to interact. I think about all of the new things I will learn and how I will be able to grow. I think about how happy I am that I get to do what I love.
Every single day, I work with people. I help them problem solve, I am looking to get them into the best possible situation and grow their lives in the direction they want to grow it in. I get to meet new people, go on adventures to new place, see new things, learn new ideas and hear about new innovations in energy and life. I love this. I am grateful for this. I love what I do. I love being able to be a part of the fabric of my community. To me, being in my field of real estate, it isn’t just about buying and selling houses. Real Estate is about building up community, teaching people about home ownership, energy efficiency and relationships. It is about growing community and being a part of something bigger than you and me. I am grateful that I get to do what I love and even more grateful that I get to meet people like my clients who entrust me with this experience every single day.
Speaking of gratitude, I am so thankful for my amazing partnerships with people like Mark Turner of GreenSpur who was a driving force at OneNest. He is the one who graciously allowed us to shoot the video above at his brilliant concept house in Delaplane. If you’re interested in more information about that lovely home, and how you can have one like it, please do reach out! I’m happy to help!
