Inspirational Post 1/3/19by Patricia Feager Everyone in Texas is feeling the Flower Mound Pride. Not only did the Flower Mound Marching Band participate in the 2019 Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade on New Year's Day, but they also marched and the Band played on at Disney on January 2, 2019. Their colorful band uniforms were just as bright and beautiful as the Band Members.   Students who are drawn to music feel connected to the music and each other. They are a Team. Creativity flows like a river and when everyone is marching to the tune of their own instrument success is most likely. Playing an instrument takes practice, determination, self-discipline, focus, and listening skills. Being a member of a Flower Mound High School Band gives students confidence as they tap into their creat...

Inspirational thoughts for 12/8/18by Patricia Feager  Notes around Flower Mound, Texas Many people can continue to find low gas prices in and around Flower Mound. I filled up at $1.89 per gallon yesterday morning. When I got to Dallas, I saw some stations were selling regular for as low as $1.85 per gallon. It may be raining and cloudy out here, but people are still driving and smiling in the rain after filling up at these low prices. The 2018 Flower Mound Christmas Tree and Lighting began at 6:00 p.m. on 12/8 and ended around 9:00 p.m. The nighttime parade had lighted floats going down Spinks Road to Gerault Park for the lighting of the Christmas Tree. The ceremony offered pictures with Santa, a choir, and of course FOOD! It was chilly and raining but spirits were not dampened in Flowe...

Inspirational Thoughts 12/8/18Patricia Feager   LIVING WITH GRATITUDE My mother taught me to be grateful for everything. I can still remember rolling my eyes.Somehow, she managed to instill in me that you accept what you receive with gratitude. With time, I learned she was right. You will be happier when you give.  Love what you have. Regardless of what size, shape, location, or how much it costs, be grateful. The type of dwelling you live in, the one with the eyes, ears, nose, mouth, sense of feeling, and touch is what really counts. This is what you really need, I told my kids. They rolled their eyes. Stay healthy, is what I preached. When you look into the mirror, accept what you receive. It came from your parents and ancestors. You may not like your nose, but if you can smell, espec...

Inspirational Post 12/7/18Original story by Patricia FeagerQuotes from "It's a Wonderful Life;" & " Tom Sawyer" IT IS A WONDERFUL LIFE TO BE IN REAL ESTATE When you are in real estate, it is a "Wonderful Life!" Many people come into your life throughout your career. And just like a good book, every chapter needs editing and proofreading. There are different episodes, characters, locations, stories, scenarios, situations, and challenges. Every successful transaction has a definite and irrefutable beginning, middle, and end. But somewhere in between is never really clear as to when or if it will really close and come to an end. One man's ending is another person's beginning. When it comes to the business of real estate, everyone touches the lives of others. CLARENCE: Strange, isn't it? Ea...

In real estate in our daily work and in accomplishing tasks in our personal life do not listen to advice that you are a Super Mom or great achiever by being this multi tasker. Granted multi tasking is to be lauded as a great juggler in busy lives. But there is superior focus on "picking" one thing at a time with priority and focus and going all out to get a check mark for yourself in that area. If it takes more time than one day allocate single tasking to an amount of time and return. PRACTICE single tasking a lot, and you will become a believer in its power. Mental concentration and clarity and above allRESULTSmaterialize, in shorter amounts of time. You stop being scatterbrained and wonder where did the day go?Multitasking is a fallacy when it comes to productivity. Single tasking is ...

I got to thinking yesterday the ineffectiveness of one of our phone tools, with the question,Does Anyone Use Voice Mail Anymore?You know, the modern day equivalent of the old answering machine tied to phone. Now with cell phones, you set up a voice mail "box" to hold your messages, but is anyone retrieving them? Millennials don't ever want to pick up a call except from personal friends, NEVER seem to have time to listen to a "box" and just say TEXT me. REALTORS have "voice mail box full" recordings to drive you crazy. NOW instead of LOVING incoming calls with the advent of the phone ringing, 9 of 10 calls are robocalls. Is it any wonder people prefer text or email?SMS messaging or social media of some form??The world HAS changed. I still LISTEN to voice mail, and respond if appropriate ...

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite "chill out" holidays. It can be as stressful or least stressful as you want to make it with travel, holiday dinners, talk around the table, or life takes you a detour off traditions some years. But it does offer a "quiet pause" to reflect what you are thankful for each year amidst any turmoil in your life. For me, I like to be grateful for "GOOD CONNECTIONS". People in life, acquaintances, family, friends, associates, THOSE you know you can truly count on. They give you inner peace, they give you shelter from your storms. ALSO if you do not have enough of them, BE ONE, to others and in turn they may become one for you.Cherish people that are the special ones!!You know who they are. You just be yourself with them.Today and always, be thankful for them. ...
