    I’m sitting at my computer now, looking outside I see a beautiful rainbow, I also hear thunder, the power of mother nature — AMAZING! Mindfulness is awareness, we are not perfect, have flaws, this is a part of life but are perfect in the moment. Difficult more perhaps in the workplace where mindfulness is not known, or falsely represented. Acceptance of our heart and souls, our compassion and the realization we do not have power over the future there. Stay true to ourselves, it will work out in the end the way it is supposed to. What fires together, wires together.

    The difference is between management and real people.

    For me it’s the people who come in to look for apartments. Good Karma and energy. Nice people. A couple came in yesterday. Very nice. Showed them two apartments. I sensed they were a couple but she said apartment just for her. Not for me to ask. We had a nice visit. Today they came back. They are married but separating. He so kind to look out for her. Worried about noise with people above. The rapport between them so good and yet they are separating. I took them down to a new apartment just available after they left. Backs up to Summer Creek, a wetlands. Marvelous. Beaver, Blue Heron,White Heron, 3 varieties ducks, geese. Just to sit on patio outside calms the nerves, beautiful. She applied. Apartment not even on market 24 hours.

    The best thing, and what counts from REAL people. They are staying in motel, from Klamath Falls, and they looked at a lot of apartments. They remembered me. They said that the property was nice, but I had good “energy”/. Considering my interaction with Management this was a gift. I told ‘her’ that I so appreciated her kind words. People tend to complain. I told her/them that I truly loved the property and they said they could tell. What a wonderful gift. A blessing. What keeps me going, working in an environment that says its “compassionate management” but so negative.Wanting to stress negative and dig up problems when there aren’t any. Made my day and the reason I am still there.

    Sorry this is so long, but as Anne Frank said “I still believe in spite of everything,that PEOPLE are really good at heart”. I see this daily and am proud I project what I am, there is awareness and there is gratitude not expected but certainly appreciated!!

    Be yourself. Never waiver. Accept your flaws and embrace the good in you. It will show. Good energy is felt by others who are open to accept.

    others may walk it with you,
    but no one can walk it for you.” Rumi
