I was impatiently rushing to an appointment that I wasn't late for the other day when some things dawned on me.
I had purposely taken the coast road so I could relax and enjoy the view and the peace of the beach. As I turned onto the beach road, another car pulled in front of me. They were obviously not in any rush to get anywhere and were driving very slowly. I became frustrated at their intrusion very quickly and got close enough to their car that they felt my impatience and frustration. I could see them looking in their mirror. Even though they saw me they didn't pull over or speed up. This added to my frustration.
Then it dawned on me that I had come this way to relax and enjoy the view. I backed off, and began to look out the windows at the great expanse of the ocean. It was a calm day. The water was a blue green. The sun was shining. Boats were going to and from Martha's Vineyard and out into the open ocean to go fishing.
As I looked around, I was reminded that my frustration was a choice, and that the small events that occur to distract me can only control me if I choose to let them. In this case, I chose to reset my mind and my actions. The slow car in front of me turned off, and as I looked inside I saw it was an older couple enjoying the same beach drive I was now enjoying. I refocused my mind to feel a part of the things that are occurring in my life with great relief and different peace.
There are many things that "pull in front of me" in a day. Sometimes I just need to back off and enjoy the view and bea part of the bigger picture.
Happy Listing and Selling!
