Life is like one great big condo building stretching up to the heavens: Countless communities living together under one roof, sharing the common areas and then retreating to the privacy of their own space.
And then within the great big neighborhood of the place called home are like-minded people gathering together. They're driven by a shared purpose and they find strength in numbers.
Yet people of the world are blessed with diversity in the way they think and act. There's pro-lifers and pro-choicers. There are Cub fans and Sox fans. There’s Greenpeace and Heritage Foundation. Life is full of people and issues from one end of the spectrum to the other.
In real estate the saying goes: "Location, location, location!" Find a community where you’re comfortable and you feel fulfilled. Be prepared to open yourself up to the challenges of bright people who will teach you something. Be generous in sharing your own skills and knowledge with others.
A condo building stays rooted in its foundation, its occupants move in and out. Appreciate the fluidity we have as humankind and the constancy of a glorious universe that is the roof over our heads and shelter from life’s storms.
