Changed scenery

Well looky here.  The walls have come down.  I love the cards and the scenes that can unfold, thus telling me a story.  Now that  the wall is out of the way, what to do? What to do?  Do I do some reading on mythical lochness monsters?  Do I take a break and get out of the wind? Go for a swim, climb a mountain, go investigate that red flow? Choice is the word of the day.

I don't often draw the Seven of Cups.  All about choices, mythical or logical. Making up my mind about what is next.  That wall that I have been beating my head against is my career in real estate sales.  I should have left it at the side of the highway in 2012.  My options after the trauma were very limited.  With injuries and my age not many if any employers would hire me.  Maybe I should have taken SS disability, I was qualified.  shoulda-coulda-woulda.  Returning to sales was the best choice I could think of.  I needed to work to pay off some of the expenses of trauma, recovery, and not working for a year and half.  Tuesday July 5th, marked 6 months till my 60th birthday and standing in front of that wailing wall reminded me I just can't do this work for my remaining days.  Maybe the real choice is the leap of faith.

  1. Hope that leap takes you into a much better, more beneficial place. Maybe that lochness monster is really just telling you that what appears to be impossible might not be. :)

    1. That is such a wonderful interpretation. Thank you for the insight. I think you are right and glad you helped me with it.

  2. ahh...could you move sideways into real estate appraisal? Is your brokerage big enough to support classes for those just entering the business. The six week course my broker provided was a wonderful leg up. We developed good relationships with other newbies, and were introduced to the actual buying and selling steps. The study for the license to buy and sell, is actually real estate law, and not much help to the day to day work. Is there somewhere in the brokerage a place for a knowledgeable person to work behind the scenes? Nessie is like an iceberg, there is much more to it than meets the eye. Are you able to do physical work? Would it be inappropriate to leave cards on the group tours for new listings, offering to help pack, or a 30 minute class in packing well? There are tons of tips, and most people just dump stuff in a box ;)

    1. Appraisal work is not for me. I did something slightly similar during the height of foreclosure market. Driving eventually will become very limited for me, because of screws in my neck. I can choose to step out of active sales into a assistant position, but not in place that I can change income. I am giving myself one year out to figure it out. Thanks for suggestions. It will work out. It always does.

  3. I am so sorry to hear this Carolyn. I do have a disability payment for more than ten years now and I couldn't have managed without it or in employment. I sincerely hope you can find your way out of this maze and soon will swim in calmer waters :)
    Hugs

    1. It's all good. I have options and a new opportunity will present itself. The Universe has always provided and will again. I just have to get to that let go place(which is what all those walls are) and allow something new to present itself. Thanks for Hugs!
