Get Up and Go!

This morning I really didn’t want to get out of bed. I was talking to myself and I finally said “Just get up. You know you will be happier if you do.” I did and I feel wonderful. Get up, run, journal, shower, meditate. It is a great way to start the day and it is all done before anyone else in my family even gets out of bed.

I am grateful for sharing with others.

I am grateful for May Day baskets.

I am grateful for my incredible wife of eight years.

8 Years!

Today is Amber and my 8th Anniversary. Eight years ago Amber made me the happiest man in the world. She has given me two beautiful little girls. She is my best friend, my confidant, my shoulder, my partner. I am more attracted to her now than I have ever been. I love her so much. I am so lucky.

I am grateful for Amber’s smile.

The Small Things

Yesterday I got shit done. What is amazing to me is how small something has to be to affect me. I was searching for deals for Ron and Guy and had probably spent about an hour with no results. I was frustrated and thinking that I was screwed. I was never going to find a good deal. Then I found one.  My entire outlook changed.

What is even more amazing was that they told me that they had  seen that deal a month ago and went to inspect the properties and they needed way more work than would ever make it a deal anywhere  near list price. I wasn’t phased though. I knew I would keep searching and find another deal.

Keep Going

Life keeps going. I keep having moments of absolute certainty that I can handle in and not  just survive, but thrive. Then there are moments of fear, doubt, pessimism.  The only way that I can be absolutely certain I can handle everything that comes is when I am dead. Then nothing will be coming.  Keep going.

I am grateful for dinner outside.

I am grateful for a deal being normal.

I am grateful for the Rads.

I am grateful for girls that go for it.

I am grateful for catching up.

I am grateful for a bike ride.

An Easier Time

2018 continues to be interesting. My father went back to the hospital yesterday and now they are telling him he is having kidney issues. Which means that he will potentially have to do kidney dialysis for the rest of his life. I feel terrible for my parents having to put up with all of this even though they have both worked so hard to eat and live healthy. I love my parents so much and I am grateful that they are both still here. I just wish that they could have an easier time.

I am grateful for Hailey’s smile.

Amber is Back!!!

Amber got back from her trip to Europe yesterday and I am so happy to have her back. Just getting to hold her hand elated me. Talking to her face to face. Holding her. I am the luckiest man alive.

Watching the girls as they saw her was amazing too. Both girls ran to her, hugged her, and simply would not let go. It was so fulfilling to watch. I love that my family loves each other. I wish I could fully comprehend how lucky I  am.

I am grateful for Amber.

I am grateful for walking with Amber.

Amazing women

Amber is over in Europe right now which means that I got both of the girls all to myself for the entire weekend!  We did play place, Monkey Joe’s, Drake Diner (with Mom and Dad!), Hazel came over, Deb Seth and Isaac came over, and just a ton of hang out time meant we had a great time. I am very lucky to have such amazing women in my life. I miss Amber and I can’t wait for her to come back. I will take more bonding time with my little girls though!

I am grateful for jumping.

A Day of Learning

Yesterday two things happened that made me think. I sat down with my mentor for a few hours and started to learn how he judges potential investment property. It was an incredible few hours and I was impressed by how he was able to teach me and I was able to pick up quite a bit after a few hours.  Plus we were talking before during and after and I really like how he helps me think differently.

The Impossible is Highly Probable

I am so interested in my shift in mindset. Yesterday I went in to talk to the KW Commercial department about helping my mentor out on the commercial side. They were so negative on the market for investors in general and talked about how hard it is to get into. They told me that I couldn’t do both commercial and residential at the same time.

Then they instantly told me about exceptions to the rule while still telling me I couldn’t do it. They then spent the rest of the time telling me how difficult the market is and how hard it would be.

Abundance and Gratitude

Yesterday I started the day out by deciding that I was going to live in abundance and gratitude. And then the day happens and it is filled with abundance and gratitude. Amazing how that works.

I am incredibly excited to start working with a mentor of mine and learn so much from him and from working with him and his team.  Every time that I sit down with him in the past year he is always thinking so much bigger than me. My main goal in working with him is to expand how I think and think bigger and bigger. Abundance and gratitude.
