Living Beaverton - Your guide to everything Beaverton


Don’t stop thinking about tomorrow!

I don’t know if you remember the old Fleetwood Mac song by that title, but it was really a great song and said a lot in 5 Minutes and 19 seconds. It seems when I hear that song it gives me hope that no matter how bad today is, I should just forget about it and start thinking about tomorrow.

I think today I’ve decided that I am not going to write any more negative posts. Today is the day that I start with writing about what is good in life and real estate, and start thinking about tomorrow, instead of dwelling on the past! The past is gone, I can’t change it, I can only look forward and learn from it.

So thanks, Fleetwood Mac, for changing my attitude and to start thinking about tomorrow as I know it will be a lot better than today!

Todd, this is something that a lot of us need to adhere to. I read so many post where people live in the "negative" and it is time for them to find the "positive" in their lives and their careers.

Great song Todd, I love Fleetwood Mac.  Thanks for posting this.  It's always good to put a positive spin on things... it can turn your attitude around.

I always liked that song. I also liked those old Fleetwood mac songs when Peter Green and Bob Welsh were in the band.

Todd - Great, great stuff.  I actually love Fleetwood Mac, and that particular era reminds me of my very first girlfriend (sixth grade).  I hope you're having a terrific weekend, my friend.

And here all along I thought 'Fleetwood Mac' was the 'Cadillac' of all 'Big Macs" at MacDonalds!!! Thanks,   Fran

Nice!  I am not familiar with Fleetwood Mac, but if they can inspire someone as they inspired you, then maybe I will give them a listen!  That is quite a goal you have set for yourself.  Good luck!  I'll be watching...    :)

LOL a few weeks ago my daughter was upset that they were not playing of "her" songs in the  next band concert and that she "hated" the songs they picked - one is Don't Stop.  I'm sure she was also pushing a button of mine since she knows I like Fleetwood Mac.  I told her they had to select songs that would please the audience and I got the "huh".  I said yes, us parents!   Then the rolled eyes!

I love your outlook Todd. Positive and looking forward to better - good goals. I like this song choice too. Now it wil be ringing in my ears for days to come. Not a bad thing.

Todd, That is the only way to handle our day to day and life in general.  When we focus on the negative things, and talk about them, they start to take over our minds and hearts, and become very powerful in our lives.  However, when we chose to focus on the positve things, we will start to recognize more positive things.  When we talk about them, we strengthen them in ourselves.  Besides, people like hanging around positive people.  I think you have made a great choice.  God Bless.

Danny - I was just ready, I don't write to many negative posts, but I've decided to only post positive from now on, it was just time!

Chris - It certainly has mine and it made today a pretty good day!

Tom - That was some time ago, not saying what year they left, wouldn't want to date you - lol

Nestor or Katerina - I am actually getting a little bit more readership since I've put those up, who knows if that is the reason, but I'm going to say it is!

Jennifer - You are part of the reason for this! Your posts always seem to make me feel good and I wanted to do the same for others!

Jason - You had your first girlfriend in sixth grade? Dang, I had to wait until 9th until a girl would talk to me.

Fran - Yes, it is, they stole it from McDonalds and there was a big lawsuit. Let you in on another little known secret to the music world...Led Zeppelin was a lip sync band. (Joking people, joking)

Jonathan - Go get their greatest hits, you can't go wrong! I may have to buy it for you!

Judi - I did the same thing when I was in the high school band, I hated a lot of the song choices. Not because I hated the songs, but because I hated what we did to them. I also hated elevators for the same reason. Musak should be outlawed!

Earl - Thanks Earl, I think it has already started to change things for the better in just one day!

Hey, thanks for the comment! I believe in the law of attraction.  Positivity brings about positivity, create it even when you don't believe it, and watch what happens.  I learned last year when everyone was freaking out about the, "market" because homes weren't selling, the positive side about that was...Buyer's were and are sitting on opportunity, but because of all the negative influx of media attention etc etc, people are scared, and fear is paralyzing.  So, yeah lets collectively put out the POSITIVE and take action.

Stay young,

Hey Todd, my question is when have you been negative????  I think of you as a very Positive person, but hey, if this song, or Group gives you inspiration....well who am I to contradict you LOL :)

Todd - Excellent blog post!  We can't change yesterday, but we certainly can influence today and tomorrow in a positive way!  Joe

The song was a big hit with me when it was first released and I still love it and Fleetwood Mac today. Referring to Real Estate, I blieve there will be a brighter tomorrow. And those of us who plan to stay in the industry do need to continue with our future plans.

Whenever we decide to stay focused on the positive, no matter how things appear on the outside, we will allow God to work in and through our circumstances.  Positive thoughts begat more positive thoughts, whereas negative begats more negative.  It is our choice.  We have to make a decision and stick to it.  I would rather feel good, no matter what is happening, as oppossed to walking around mad, negative, and with my head hung low, because I have fed into the lie.  Take care.

Great song Todd, and a perfect bridge to making your point.  Thanks for sharing your wisdom, we can all use a dose of reality and learn to pay attention the the positive and ignore the negative.  Thanks

Sloane - I've had some relapses of negative, but I'm trying.

Kathy - I know I try, but even I feel from time to time the negative come out. For me it seems negative, it is good that you don't think so though.

Joseph - I'm certainly trying! Baseball season starts tomorrow for little league and tomorrow will be the first step in to changing tomorrow.

Derrick - We have to beat the negative media with positive news and if we can do that tomorrow will be great!

Earl - It is hard sometimes, but I've chosen to hang around positive people as they make me happier and because of that the people around me are happier. I try to keep a positive upbeat attitude at home as well for my family doesn't need to see the stress that can be caused by day to day life because of the media.

Denise - Have a great day and hopefully the positive vibes are still flowing today!
