~ This is me, as a realtor, working from home, during April, in the time of COVID-19.
Working and my mind wanders to how much I miss people. Quite a strong desire to reconnect with all that influence me, improve my life and anyone that I care about. I decided its time to resume some normalcy and post new ways to work from home. I miss human interaction. I miss the energy, physical closeness, smiles, laughter, and sharing stories. We are not socially distant. This is wrong. We are physically unable to connect with each other. Not for long though, it seems that we are getting back on track! Life goes on. We are getting through this and resume the joy of being human once again.
Our real estate market is holding up. Prices are not going down, interestingly enough. People need to sell, move, buy and move on with their future. We, as realtors, are still able to practice under extreme caution here in Florida. Every day, there is a change in CDC rules and we adapt to it. We mostly connect virtually to fellow professionals and clients. I took so many learning classes about real estate that I could never do before. My knowledge expanded quite a lot. I brushed up on all my electronic skills, apps and processes. Although, I think I am overdosing on seeing people waving to each other through the screens. No, it’s not the same, as being physically present. Sometimes, I do seek privacy and solitude from all the nonstop interaction with different home professionals, but right now, I think the screen reality is over the top. I am dreaming of the country reopening. When it will be safe again, the first thing I will do is jump in our Tampa Bay warm ocean waters and visit some local restaurants and order food. May be french fries – my favorite treat. Maybe ice cream. Shopping is fun too. I just can’t wait to go out there and see crowds of people. Finally. I will never take for granted close contact among people again.
What will you do first after we are all able to resume our regular life pattern? Please share with me. So curious. We are all so different and interesting. I can’t wait to hear about your wishes.
Friends, set your thoughts to vibrate high with positive emotions and this goodness will become your own reality.
Make it a very grounding, productive, healthy and safe day.
Until next time, dear friends.
