Great News Comes Out of Nowhere!

One of the best lessons I ever learned was that good news often can come out of nowhere. You don't see it coming, you don't know it's coming, you don't expect it at all. This has been a great lesson for me because it's always been able to keep me optimistic. No matter how bad things may look, they can turn around on a dime. So I try to remember that lesson every day.

I got hit with a little piece of good news that I did not expect a couple of days ago. As I was pulling into my bank's drive-through ATM, I got a call from the people who put out my real estate newsletter. Turns out they had seen my blog, The Price of Rice!, and wanted to use one of my articles for their newsletter. They offered me a tidy little sum, plus three months of the newsletter free. They also said they'd like to talk to me about writing some more articles for them in the near future. Well, that call was a very pleasant thing to come my way, as I said, out of nowhere.

So, as the song from Life of Brian says, Always look at the bright si-ide of life...(whistle, whistle).
