My first draft of this letter was directed at the recent events that are taking place on our national stage in politics and government., but I realized that the main point I wanted to make was to bring an encouraging message to you and to assure you that many great and wonderful people are diligently, tirelessly, and sacrificially working to make our world a better place. I want to be one of those people. I want to be part of the solution, not the problem.
To do that, I sometimes have to disconnect from the stories and reactions on social media. I have to focus on the good stuff that is going on all around me. I need to be looking for ways that I can improve myself and the world around me.
Here's a little bit about what I am trying to do in order to be part of the solution: In addition to taking great care of my clients in my Real Estate Business and my wonderful, sweet and supportive family, I am currently the Vice-president of the neighborhood Blockwatch for Washington Park Neighborhood. If you don't know about my little neighborhood, you are missing out! I am also on the Board of Directors 2017-2018 for the Phoenix Association of Realtors, nominee for the Board of Directors for the Arizona Association of Realtors, President-elect 2018 for the Women's Council of Realtors Phoenix Network. I also volunteer with the homeless outreach ministry at my church; this one is recent and very exciting!
Why do I do all this? Well, it might make my city a better place to live and work for other people, it makes me a better person, it definitely makes me a better, more informed and connected Realtor, and it leaves a legacy for my children and an example of hope that will serve them in their lives as adults. I say 'yes' because they asked me and helping to influence these organizations to continue in a positive and life-giving direction is very important to me! These positions only use up a few hours of my time per month, the benefit of giving is far above and beyond anything I will receive!
**Have I encouraged you to check out what's going on in your neighborhood? to unplug and focus on the good stuff? Is there a local block-watch that needs volunteers? I promise you, they need volunteers.
I would LOVE to hear from you! Please call me and let me know what you think of my blog post! Call me, and let's talk about how you are making your world a better place.
Believe it or not, I am never too busy for you, your friends and family! Please let me know if I can help them sell their home fast and/or find a great place to live, Or both!
I really love my clients and I love what I do.
