Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this week’s edition of Nate’s Monday Morning Message…yesterday I got to spend the day with my family which is what Easter is all about for me. I am filled with gratitude and appreciation for life and, I just want to take a moment to thank each of you for being a part of my life…to my past clients, current clients and future clients, thank you for your support and continued trust as your real estate advisory…for those of you reading this who are a part of RE/MAX Professionals, thank you for being a part of our organization. I would not be able to do what I do, if it wasn’t for each of you.  Let’s make it a great week!


One day a grandchild came to his grandpa and asked: What is soul?

Grandpa told him a story that he heard a long time ago from his own grandpa: “It is said that there are three ‘I’ in a human, which support and guide him through his whole life. The first ‘I’ – is the coldest. It is seen by every surrounding person. The second ‘I’- is the warmest. It is only seen by the closest people to you. The first and the second always argue for power over the man, and their discord awakens doubt and fear in us. And only the third ‘I’ can reconcile and find a compromise between the first two. No one can see it. Sometimes we are unaware of its existence, but it is always with us.”

“I never heard about it,” the grandchild said. Grandpa smiled and answered:

“The first ‘I’- is Mind. If it takes over the second one, the person becomes calculative and cold. The second ‘I’- is Heart. If it wins, we become naive. Then it is easy to hurt and deceive us. The third one – is the Soul. Only it can restore the balance in us.”



“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” - John F. Kennedy

“Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.” - Denis Waitley

“Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.” - Brian Tracy

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.” - Melody Beattie

“I write about the power of trying, because I want to be okay with failing. I write about generosity because I battle selfishness. I write about joy because I know sorrow. I write about faith because I almost lost mine, and I know what it is to be broken and in need of redemption. I write about gratitude because I am thankful - for all of it.” - Kristin Armstrong
