Life is about YOU Reaching for More!
I’m thankful for my life and the things I have in it. A recent occurrence really set things into perspective for me and I’m hoping me sharing this with you helps you to appreciate what you have as well.
As you may know, I’ve expanded the Hemp Oil Rockstar branding with our new Carolina Hemp Hut. The first store is in the Streets at Southpoint Mall in Durham, NC. I’ve hired wonderful people to work with me and we’re having a great time. I’m also a very active Realtor® in the Triangle and I’ve been coordinating my limited time at the shop in Durham while I still make sure I have all of my bases covered with my Real Estate clients.
This last week, while I was covering a shift for one of my employees, I was greeted by an unusual customer. He ended up purchasing several items from the shop AND he pocketed my Samsung smart phone as he finished the transaction. I didn’t notice until he was gone and I was closing up the shop.
Making a rather lengthy story shorter, I’ll summarize by revealing I was very upset. I loved that phone. I used if for my Real Estate work all the time. I used it for the Hemp Oil Rockstar work. And, it wasn’t very old.
My husband, David, wanted to be sure I was safe. He didn’t worry about the phone. “We can replace a phone” was what he told me. This was the first step in helping me regain my perspective.
A good night’s sleep later, I went in to the shop the NEXT morning both energized and full of vigor. I was determined to have the best possible day I could. I wasn’t going to let a negative take me down. I was THANKFUL for my family, I was THANKFUL for the fruits of my hard work (working multiple jobs to make things come together for my family), and I was THANKFUL that all I lost was an (expensive) phone.
