Colorado Springs Realtor - Cherise's Blog: Friday Reflections – Gordon Selley, COO

Friday Reflections – Gordon Selley, COO

Gordon Selley, COO

Cherise and I have decided to devote our Friday blogs to various topics that affect all of us, whether personal or professional. The structure of these blogs is not to impose our way of thinking and living as the only or best ways for you to live. Simply, we are going to openly share our vulnerabilities and our mistakes, as well as our strengths and victories in life.

Feel free to follow along…

Although various polls seem to capture the essence of what’s happening within our socio-economic culture, Cherise and I do not believe that you have to remain bound to majority opinions and behaviors. In fact, our lives demonstrate the opposite of the majority, specifically for those who never seem to overcome oversized obstacles nor get beyond the pain and brokenness in their lives.

It seems like the overriding message these days is that change never really happens for a lot of people. And while this might appear true, the fact of the matter is that you do not have to remain enslaved to this type of conjecture.

Real life-change is possible. There is a drop of cool water for you if you’re in a desert of despair.

Thought for the day: Hope only lasts as long as you believe in it. Why not drink from springs of living water instead of crawling toward a mirage in the desert? Why don’t you first evaluate your beliefs before you simply react to the arduous trials of life?

First things first. You have to make a commitment to enter into a process of inner change before your external world can experience long-lasting hope and evidence of sustained transformation.

There are some wise words, here, Gordon.  Sometimes we get too comfortable.  Changing isn't easy but we are all capable of doing it.  We just have to want to.

Just like love does not come easy.  It takes blood, sweat and tears to become nourished by it... g

Great photo of you Gordon. And I am often the minority in opinions and behaviors, I think most of New Yorkers are too.

Nimble is a great word these days - which aptly applies to us since we've been forced to evacuate via Walden Canyon Fire... g

Change does so much originate from within Gordon. An inner force makes your external world possible. Thanks to Cherise also on the Waldo Canyon fire videos on FB to keep us abreast. Stay safe, I know it was a mandatory evacuation for your area.

Cherise and Gordon - Thinking of you during this time of evacuations due to the fires.  I hope you are safe.
