Hello, I’m back and feeling good. Today is a positive day. On my list of things to do is: pack for weekend trip with husband (minus kids!), pick up already pretty clean house so it’s beautiful to come home to and figure out where we are going for our date out tonight in Tucson! Life just doesn’t get much better than that.
I am also just feeling more positive just in general. The real estate biz had me a little frustrated and overworked there for awhile. I have, however, taken a couple of steps back, reorganized my house, played with my kids and am now ready to head back in. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been working this entire time. I have a house in escrow that is past the inspection period and looking pretty good to close, and my listings have been showing regularly and I’ve been getting good feedback. I also have another deal starting to take shape and a couple of new clients to do listing presentations for. So I haven’t exactly been taking time off. What I have been doing, though, is staying away from prospecting for new clients. It’s the toughest part of the job for me and what gets me down the most quickly. It’s about 10 doors slammed in your face before you get one yes, and I swear, that kills my soul. I just wasn’t up for it lately. It’s part of the job, and I’m resigned to the fact that it will always be something I need to keep up with if I want to be successful, but I needed a little soul-healing time.
So I’m back in at full capacity and feeling positive. I’m ready to brave the hot Arizona sun and show houses for eight hours. I’m ready for a midnight marathon contract writing session. Bring on the 7 AM calls from frantic agents.
…well, you know, AFTER my weekend away, of course.
