Since coming back from Mexico nearly 2 years ago, and especially after Houston after Hurricane Harvey, I have been learning how to have fewer and change my relationship with material possessions. During #megarelief in Houston in September, one of the items available for fundraising was a One Thing book signed by the authors, and I thought “This is one thing I know will benefit many people, myself included”. So I purchased my 2nd copy of #theonething and I am SO excited. Not only is it signed by Gary Keller and Jay Papasan, yet it is personalized for me. This is definitely one of my most prized possessions now, more importantly because I only received it by donating to help others. #lifeworthliving#kellerwilliams#kw
As I look down on my arm, I find myself wearing three bracelets lately. Not necessarily a fashion statement, just three silicon bracelets created for three unrelated events. Just a quick glance down my arm and they've become constant reminders. Each with their own significance and unique meaning to me. Each one being a continual reminder to not only remember but to live what the bracelet represents to me. They are bracelets of love, hope, perseverance, resilience, integrity, gratitude and strength. They are bracelets meaning live life to the fullest, to help other's when possible, to show up for others, to always be improving, that life gives us many lessons and it's how we deal with those lessons that determines the direction of lives. Three bracelets that represent the direction of my life. #macdonstrong#megarelief#bold#comefromcontribution#live#life#love#grateful ❤️💙

Taken from the FB album... “Welp, before 8/22/17, it never occurred to me that I would do a daily solo #FBlive (sometimes twice a day) for weeks upon weeks upon weeks... & we're still going too. I'm learning so much about people, what they need, how much they want to help, what they want to know ... and how generous people are in so many ways!!! Oh, and I'm learning about more technology... #WinWin !
Thank you to everyone who has been with us & continues to view, comment, share, & take action ... it matters to the individual human beings that need our help through these devastating fires, hurricanes, flooding, earthquakes & more fires, hurricanes, flooding & earthquakes... *Side note: leading up to (starting 8/22), during & after Mega Relief, I've now done a total of 99 Crisis Update FB Lives (blink blink) with approx 96,000 views (as of 9/26). Turns out, people want to know things.
Especially when they care!!! -----
On 9/3/17, a week before I was scheduled to go to Austin, I got a call from contacts in Austin to come help with specific tasks for the Houston relief efforts.
So, I hopped on a plane that day, landed that night & helped behind the scenes for a week.
On 9/11/17, participated in my pre-hurricane scheduled class: the powerful & impactful #InstructorDevelopmentWorkshop with Dick Dillingham & the masterful Gene McNaughton.
Huge props to Stacia Thompson, Dawn Sroka, Antoinette Perez Mona Covey the whole team for somehow making it happen in the midst of the largest natural disaster in Texas & the largest kw pivot in the history of the company
And, the next day we started kw #Meg#MegaRelief (the event formerly known as Mega Camp). #CultureInAction and we got to see lives change in front of our eyes!
