I was put to the test this morning; how was I going to remain calm!
I was showing a new tenant to their apartment; we got on the elevator to come downstairs after their walk-through and then it happened!
It was obviously going to happen at some point; yes, we were stuck in the elevator at our apartment building! It (the elevator) decided it was Monday and was not in the mood to work I guess! Just so happens, it didn’t wait until we could get off to stop working! Fun Times!
For the most part, I would have freaked out, as to be honest, this is not one of the things on my “passion” list to look forward too! However, once I saw our new tenant “grab” and white knuckled the bar in the elevator, I knew I had to remain calm for her. Funny, how when push comes to shove, we can stand up to face our own fears.
We started chatting about the excitement of living in her new place, how she was going to decorate, and how many people she was going to meet. We were only stuck for approximately 5 minutes, but it seemed like 5 hours. By focusing on something positive, made her smile and before you knew it, her grasp on the bars was loosened, her breathing was slower and then, wouldn’t you know it, the doors opened and we were back in the Lobby.
The Power of Positive Thoughts and Comments! They are not just words! They help when you are faced with a fear, they help others cope in their difficult times, and they help you face each day! They help you to breathe!
