Were We Both Viking Warriors In Our Past Lives?

By Living Room Realty, July 5, 2018

I recently had my DNA analyzed and it turns out that I pretty much descended from a single bean that sprouted in the North countryside of Germany.  My business partner bought me the ancestry test insisting that he had a hunch that I was a descendant of a Viking warrior.  Viking lore has long hinted that not all warriors were men.  Shield-laden riding a horse into battle is not exactly how I see myself, but my partner sees the two of us this way.  I liken myself to a Norse Valkyrie, which appear as the lovers of heroes.  They were accompanied by swans.  And there was that time when I was a child and took in an injured swan that became a pet. —– Where am I going with this… we’ll, the older I get, today being one more year passed, I continually think about the broad strokes of  human connections.  Whether that be through ancestry lineage or Zodiac signs.  Real estate is a spidery-web of human connection and friendship.  People and clients come into our lives for a reason.  Chris and I have spent the last few months riding into battle for clients and their transactions.   Tomorrow I turn 47……..  And while I am not a medieval seafarer who plans on raiding a country, I do plan on kicking ass this next year on behalf of all of our incredible clients.  Reflection.  My Birthday.  What an amazing year it was and the honor it was to work with so many of you.  Sword held  —- Onward we go!
