Deb's Lake Conroe Real Estate & Stuff! : I Challenge YOU...

I Challenge YOU...

I do. I challenge you to:

Believe today what will happen tomorrow....

And to make it happen...

Keep a great attitude in the face of adversity...Be strong for the weak....a bullfight

Be a leader and not just the follower...

Give up something for someone else...

Remain positive when times seem bleak...

Praise God in the face of adversity...

Work when you feel like collapsing...

Win the race even though you've been told you lost...

Smile when the clouds are heavy...

Step aside for the challenged...

Be the one you would aspire to be...

I challenge you the best you can be...never give up...follow your heart...

Let's change for the better~

Later in the rain~Deb

Ok, Deb, you've been reading my mind all week.  I have "worked" all day today to change my somewhat negative attitude from earlier this week to a more positive attitude to start the new week.  :)

Nice post Deb - I'm just wondering why you are showing me a bull fight???? What am I missing here?

JuJu, after this past week I have a feeling of hope yet confusion. I am ready for a change and I'm willing to put my best foot forward toward accomplishing our goals for our Nation! We begin our steps from right here at home. I hope to be a good "local" citizen! Keep your pretty chin up and wear that pony tail! Your friend, Deb

Mary, you are so very welcome. I needed it too. I keep repeating the words to myself that have become a part of my life over time. I hope it helps. Deb

BethAnn, I'm honored! Thank you so much for that. I just hope this reaches the people that need it.

Simon, it was the best vision I could think of for a challenge?? I know, I know, I'm weird...

Pat, if you found it uplifting...I did a good job. I do live by this. Thanks for the reading. Deb

I was so stressed out all week, with escrows falling out and me scrambling to get them back on track (happily, they did), then trying to get new clients excited about seeing property (sooo thankful I have buyers).

Taking time to relax, recharge, rejuvenate....and count my blessings. Your blog reminds me of what I should always strive to do.

Was good to read your post -- I had a sort of wacky week! Up and down for a variety of reasons.  A crazy short sale that I've no idea what is ever going to happen with it for one!  But the reminder to work when I feel like collapsing was a good one! thanks

Thank you SO MUCH for this motivation!  I think I am going to print this one out and find a special place for it in my office!
