JULY 2021 HOMEWARD BOUND

JULY 2021 HOMEWARD BOUND

 

We assume the rights of freedom and debate its boundaries in politics, yet how often do we take time to reflect on what freedom means to us personally? Freedom is not a concept carved from stone; it is malleable and personal, always shifting shape depending on where you find yourself standing and the angle of the slanting light.

My personal definition of freedom is the ability to act based on my convictions without external restriction or retribution. It is the ability to represent myself as I see myself to be, not having to hide or disguise who I am in order to pursue happiness, fulfillment, and growth. It is the power of free self-expression.

Personal freedom is one of my top three values. Of course, there are boundaries to freedom. My actions should not hurt others or restrict their personal freedoms, and so this is the dance of conscience. Will what I want conflict with what others want or need? If so, how can I have the personal autonomy I need while respecting the freedom of those around me? I believe there is always a path for mutual free expression, when we respect one another.

Today, as we prepare to celebrate Freedom Month, I offer the following quotes as food for thought and as writing prompts:

“We must be free not because we claim freedom, but because we practice it.” – William Faulkner

“If we don’t believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don’t believe in it at all.” – Noam Chomsky
                 
And I leave you with these questions: Which, if any, of these quotes resonate with you? What do you believe about freedom and how do you describe or define it for yourself?

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Beautiful famous words. Those words really come to life for us when you consider the idea of owning real estate, especially your own home.
My guaranteed sale program is a solution to ‘wrongs’ in real estate for homeowners experiencing the Catch 22. In fact, this is how successful businesses are built. Identify something that is a problem for people and solve it.

In today’s market, many homeowners really want to make a move, but are finding themselves in a Catch 22 – whether to sell first or buy first. They don’t want to end up getting stuck owning two homes or none at all.

My solution to this dilemma is this guarantee: “Your Home Sold Guaranteed at a Price Agreeable to You or I’ll Buy It*” My own revolution, so to speak, that deals with the age-old indictment of whether to buy first of sell first.

Candlelighters, founded by families of children with cancer
FOR families of children with cancer; to be a light in the darkness . 

Their programs and services for families of children with cancer are not limited to in-patient families, but extend beyond the hospital walls. Over the years, they have learned how critically valuable it is for their Parent Consultants to be able to personally hand parents of children with cancer practical assistance such as a meal pass, parking assistance, or gas card; as well as provide opportunities for families to make memories together outside the hospital walls. “It is our greatest honor and privilege to bring this type of comfort to childhood cancer families when stress is so high and they feel so helpless.”
