When Black Friday comes
I'll collect everything I'm owed
And before my friends find out
I'll be on the road
~ Walter Becker/ Donald Fagan from "Black Friday"
Oh yes, every year when Black Friday comes, I'm feeling wiped out from work, unsatisfied by whatever happened on Thanksgiving, and wishing I could just run off to the proverbial islands.
Black Friday 2022. Multiply that by 12.
It's been a hard year in real estate for everyone --clients and agents alike. With very few exceptions, it's been a hard year for everyone everywhere. And I'm ending November with a bout of COVID 19 (my first) which is preventing me from being with my loved ones. I'm feeling extra dark this Black Friday.
So, I figure I should "let there be light" instead.
As Thich Nhat Hanh said, real happiness derives in part from noticing and being grateful for any moment of contentment: "Suffering from your toothache you get enlightened: you say: 'It's wonderful not to have a toothache.' So, how to enjoy your non-toothache? Just remember the time when you had a toothache. Suffering plays a very important role in helping you to be happy."
