I have mixed emotions about that. I am VERY happy that we seem to be on the road to recovery, but, I'm a little sad to see the world heading back to the tight schedules, and the general frenzy of the long "to do" lists.
People to see, places to go, things to do. Even though we've longed for more of these things, I do hope that our lives can be a little simpler. That we can make do with a little less, that we can make time for the little things that bring us joy, make time to think, and appreciate the people in our lives, including ourselves. That we can continue to help each other.
And mostly, that the lineups at the LCBO get shorter. ;)
I suppose I am saying that my reflection this week has turned into more of a future plan.
I am lucky to have had a steady business throughout most of Covid, but, much of it was done online, without any face to face contact. Granted, most of those clients were people I had met prior to, but, I actually did one sale without ever even meeting the client. I really do miss meeting the people.
On the upside, I've had the time and space to take care of a few business projects I never seem to make the time for, and, I've been able to spend most evenings at home, which is unheard of in the spring real estate market usually. Our market had been working at such a frenzied pace over the past few years, that I had to learn how to manage this new normal of having some extra time in my week. And, I must admit, I am starting to enjoy this part.
Looking forward, my next project is to find ways to balance life a little better. I'd really like to keep some of this simplicity we've all found in the midst of a very complicated global pandemic.
Do you have some newfound things you'd like to keep as we continue to get busier? And, how do you plan to do that?
