After my husband died, I didn't want to answer the phone, do showings... or anything for that matter.  That's when I decided I needed to take time off.  My plan was to take a year off.  It's been 6 1/2 years and I haven't looked back.  I'm enjoying contributing in whatever way I can, playing golf and hanging out with my friends.

I love what I do - every day a new adventure, challenge, or experience.  I enjoy meeting new people and working with colleagues - if I dreaded it, I would find something else to do.  Life is too short.  

After I finished college, I was hired by a major insurance company who moved me and my new bride from Southern California to Chicago.  They painted a great recruiting picture.  My first day my wife picked me up, and asked me how my day was.  I told her I made a big mistake, it was boring, dreary and filled with unfulfilled people.  One example of how strange it was is that everyone's phone number was in a different size type, the higher you were in the organization, the larger the type font.  It was forbidden to call anyone with a larger font than yours.

I vowed that year to not stay a year.  364 days later I joined a company I loved, that set me on a great career path.

Either way, I treat them as I'd want to be treated if I was not in the business, from speaking with them the first time to far after closing. Many have become good friends.

Dread work?

No. As long as there is work to be done, I am a happy camper.

It is that season where nothing is working well, head hurts from bouncing off all the walls, those new ideas seem to have fled to someone elses brain.  That is when I think a career positin at Waffle House looks promising.

Then I remind mayself of the 20 mile marker, that point where you are out of fuel, the body hurts, screaming "let me rest'  but I know the finish line is just a few mental victories away.  I remind myself of the meaning of life......FINSIH BIG!.....and the attitude returns.
