All about real estate, our business, the industry, related news & events...or the odd personal tale or two!!
Happiness is a journey...

 

We convince ourselves that life will be better after we get married, have a baby, then another. Then we are frustrated that the kids aren't old enough and we'll be more content when they are. After that we're frustrated that we have teenagers to deal with. We will certainly be happy when they are out of that stage. We tell ourselves that our life will be complete when our spouse gets his or her act together, when we get a nicer car, are able to go on a nice vacation, when we retire.

The truth is, there's no better time to be happy than right now. If not now, when?

Your life will always be filled with challenges. It's best to admit this to yourself and decide to be happy anyway. Alfred D Souza said, "For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life."

This perspective has helped me to see that there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. So, treasure every moment that you have. And treasure it more because you shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time ... and remember that time waits for no one...

So stop waiting until you finish school, until you go back to school, until you lose ten pounds, until you gain ten pounds, until you have kids, until your kids leave the house, until you start work, until you retire, until you get married, until you get divorced, until Friday night, until Sunday morning, until you get a new car or home, until your car or home is paid off, until spring, until summer, until fall, until winter, until you are off welfare, until the first or fifteenth, until your song comes on, until you've had a drink, until you've sobered up, until you die, until you are born again to decide that there is no better time than right now to be happy...

Happiness is a journey, not a destination.

Thought for the day :
Work like you don't need money,
Love like you've never been hurt,
And dance like no one's watching.

Winter Wonderland!

Here we are, mid November and we have snow on the ground already!! Winter has started early this year.

Everyone is complaining, let's face it not many people actually like this weather do they?! All we can do is accept it and find it a happy and upbeat way to deal with it, perhaps embracing a winter sport or getting a new hobby will help the long days go by quickly. We cannot change the weather ever. And after all it's only 123 days until the first day of Spring so not long at all...(uh huh, not long!)

Then there are the "bah humbugs and grinches" of the world complaining about the fact that Christmas decorations and commercials are upon us? Again we say, Christmas happens every year and it's not going anywhere, so find a way to enjoy the season and be POSITIVE! No need to dampen the mood of those eagerly anticipating the season now is there?

Just our two cents for today!

Things to start doing in your relationships...

You must be what it is that you’re seeking. This is a universe of attraction and energy. You can’t have a desire to attract a mate who’s confident, generous, non-judgmental, and gentle, and expect that desire to be manifested if you’re thinking and acting in nonconfident, selfish, judgmental, or arrogant ways…

Spend time with nice people who are smart, driven and likeminded.  Relationships should help you, not hurt you.  Surround yourself with people who reflect the person you want to be.  Choose friends who you are proud to know, people you admire, who love and respect you – people who make your day a little brighter simply by being in it.  Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you.  When you free yourself from negative people, you free yourself to be YOU – and being YOU is the only way to truly live. 

Don’t live your life with hate in your heart. You will end up hurting yourself more than the people you hate.  Forgiveness is not saying, “What you did to me is okay.”  It is saying, “I’m not going to let what you did to me ruin my happiness forever.”  Forgiveness is the remedy.  It doesn’t mean you’re erasing the past, or forgetting what happened.  It means you’re letting go of the resentment and pain, and instead choosing to learn from the incident and move on with your life.  Remember, the less time you spend hating the people who hurt you, the more time you’ll have to love the people who love you.

Back to School & Real Estate Market!

We cannot believe how fast this summer has flown by! The kids going back to school (which every parent is ecstatic about I might add) signifies the summer's end! I choke as I type that very phrase "summer's end". We personally do not subscribe to that theory...rather it's the beginning of our "Indian Summer" which will last through to December, at least...girls can dream can't they?!

As for our real estate market at the present time? Well, we are continuing to see a real shortage of inventory across the board, as it pertains to our client base anyway. Other realtors may be experiencing something different. We have buyers who are desperate to find their dream home, and of course, we are eager to help them, but with nothing on the market that suits this continues to be a challenge to say the least. We are certain that will all change once the fall market kicks into full swing!

Us here at E-Squared Homes are parents and therefore have spent the summer catering to children and their demands whilst working with clients. Not to mention we threw a few vacations with our families in here and there. That is all over now however and we are back to the proverbial grind, working hard to fulfill the dreams of our buyers and sellers!

If you, or anyone you know, may need our assistance at any time please do not hesitate to reach out to us. We are always here to help and answer questions on today's current market conditions, and are merely a phone call or email away!!

Enjoy the rest of our summer days as they last, and look forward to the season to come... A few good things that fall brings beside lots of hot new listings... "Starbuck's Pumpkin Spiced Lattes" and pumpkin pie... Need I say more!

Focus On The Positive...

 

Be grateful for all that you have, for the life you have been given, for your family and friends, your job, and your home. Be thankful and give thanks for the abundance and prosperity that the Universe  blesses upon you each and every day.

Feel the appreciation, happiness, and gratefulness for all that surrounds you and all that is within you.

Imagine having the life that you have always wanted. Then feel inside those feelings that you would have if you were already experiencing all that you desire. Combine that with these feelings of gratitude now for what you do have.

Focus on the positive things in your life. Release the negative thoughts, feeling, and actions. Release those feelings, the people and the things that bring you down or affect you negatively in anyway or at least set boundaries for yourself.

Live your life as if you already have the things that you desire. How? By believing and expressing yourself as if you had them or are living your dreams.

Take a few moments each day to meditate – seeing yourself in that beautiful house, with the mate of your dreams, living with a smile in your heart and on your face every day.

Accept those times that may not feel so gracious and look for the silver lining in that rain cloud.
