I am a firm believer in Fate and that people come in to your life for a very specific reason. I do take responsibility for the choices I have made in life, but I really believe that Fate has steered me in the direction I am meant to be going on; and today I am feeling very thankful for the events that have taken place this past year. Those who know me understand that I had been in a dark place for a long time, and that finally getting the courage to leave the house and reenter the workforce was one of the best things to happen to me in a long time.
I didn’t plan on going in to Real Estate. It was always something in the back of my mind that I considered a potential career – it lends itself well to my Marketing Background and it’s a career that would free me up to pursue other interests such as my writing and my music. So I was taking a huge risk responding to the Job Ad a few years ago I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but it was a Marketing job, and I took it.
The past two years I’ve had the pleasure of working with a fantastic team of individuals. We’ve learned so much together .. not only in the business but about ourselves! Keller Williams is the only company I’ve been associated with that puts the PERSON first. They foster an environment of continual learning, of putting yourself first, and still finding much success. Yes, I have sipped the Kool-Aid and I love it! The company mission and vision, and my amazing boss, are the reason I’m currently pursing my Real Estate License.
I’ve made some fantastic friends this past year as well who are wishing me much success. I am thankful to be in a place where I’ve allowed others to breach my hermity-circle. These new found friends have much to do with that. They don’t let me hide in my office too long without popping in and drawing me out. They are exactly what I need. The other team in the office is great as well – their passion for Real Estate and sense of FUN have been great for me. I finally feel like I fit in somewhere .. that I belong. There’s always time for laughter here. That’s a very good thing!
I’ve got a lot to be thankful for this year. I can finally see myself as more than just a lonely hermit. And its these new relationships developing that are helping me to trust people again.
