Are You Ready to Stop “Should-ing”?

Dear Friend,

Ah, spring again... the time for renewed life, renewed commitments and renewed relationships.

Spring is also an exciting time of year in my business. As nature begins to come out of hibernation, so do all the people who have been thinking all winter about moving. I've spent the last few months cleaning and preparing for all the new people I will help this season. For me, spring-cleaning comes early!

Another thing I did over this winter was to reflect on my priorities. I have been spending time thinking about the value of relationships and how important it is to keep in touch and appreciate the people who touch our lives.

Over the holidays I received a card from an old friend. As usual, I said to myself, “I really should call him more often.” But this year, instead of just “should-ing,” I actually did call him.

Pat and I had gone to school together, and as 16-year-olds we were inseparable. Of course, after graduation we went to college, found jobs, he got married and we slowly drifted our separate ways.

When I picked up the phone to call him, I have to admit I was nervous. Would we still have anything to say to each other?
Well, I needn't have worried!
Pat was thrilled to hear from me and after a few minutes it was just like old times. Since then we've gone out several times and talked regularly. I can't tell you how wonderful it feels to have him back in my life again.

So, as you come out of your hibernation this spring I encourage you to renew a relationship.

Take a break from spring-cleaning and call someone you care about.
Invite them for a barbecue or to a baseball game or for a cup of coffee.
You'll be glad you did!

Thank you for allowing me to share my life and thoughts with you.
