My sister Arlene, my friend Morgan and I started a realty company named Opus Realty which we later rebranded to Oakwyn Realty. The reason we called it OPUS was because the definition of OPUS is your artistic masterpiece. As a kid, I watched Mr. Holland’s Opus with Richard Dreyfus and we wanted to create our OPUS in business and help our agents achieve their greatest work masterpiece with us as well.

I recently watched QUEEN: LIVE AID and was blown away as Freddie Mercury sang with his best friends and band. I was awestruck by his raw emotion, peacock mindset and pure presence with the crowd. I wonder if this was his greatest moment or his masterpiece that he left behind. I wonder if he knew that it was or not in the middle of doing it. I’ve been listening to a lot of QUEEN lately, I love their music.

I’m not sure if I have already done my greatest work or if it is still coming up. I’m journeying to seek answers to this question and see how far we can explore the map before time is up. I wonder if this BLOG or my POD will be the spark or lead to the idea that changes everything. I was having a lunch with an agent and the topic of purpose came up. I’ve been contemplating very much on this idea… There is this song by QUEEN: I WANT TO BREAK FREE. I’ve listened to it over and over and I want to help myself and other people break free. Freedom from the normal or freedom from judgement or freedom from helplessness or freedom from confusion or freedom from pretending to be someone your not or freedom from insecurity.

I love freedom and I love commitment at the same time which is a strange dichotomy but for some reason makes sense to me. I feel free to make decisions when I stick to my commitments, values and promises. This is not really leading anywhere but it felt good to get these thoughts down.
