Ground Hog Day For This Brooklyn Realtor!

What is the meaning of Ground Hog day?

What is the meaning of Ground Hog day? Well the answer is well known as,  Groundhog Day, celebrated across the  Canada and the United States on February 2, is purely a North American tradition. It is based on a belief that on this day (February 2) the groundhog, or woodchuck, comes out of it’s hole after winter hibernation to look for its shadow. If the shadow is seen, the groundhog foretells ’six more weeks of bad weather and thus a lingering winter. But if no shadow is seen the ground hog stays above ground and spring is near.

In the National Lampoon movie “Ground Hog day” Bill Murray’s character wakes up every morning only to find he is repeating the same day, every day Ground Hog day. He goes on to change one thing each day, to break the cycle, and create change and make the next day turn out differently.

Have you ever answered the question, How are you doing, or in Brooklyneze (How you doin) with the answer SOS JUST A DIFFERENT DAY! This to me is a choice, every day to repeat the day before. Most of us make our New Years resolution only to be  quickly forgotten. February 2nd is Ground Hog Day and it is a time for this Brooklyn Realtor to make a small change, a change that will impact me in a big way going forward.This change could be as dramatic as changing your career, or as simple as committing to wearing a smile on your face, saying good day, please and thank you to the people in your life. Today is the day to take that first step!

Anything to  make the day just a little different than the day before. So, “Ground Hog Day”, February 2nd, just one small change. NO MORE SOS. It is a different day! Make one change, big or small, just one little change. I promise it will grow on you, and make your life a better place to be.

If you want to join this movement, I would love to hear what changes are being made,  Start today, share the changes you will make this Ground Hog Day! Leave you comments on this page  or email Charles D’Alessandro  your Brooklyn Realtor® of Fillmore Real Estate at [email protected]. I look forward to your changes.

    Charles I love this idea and I hope other brokers, agents and people in general read this Blog. You’re correct if we make one small change for the better each day it will impact our lives and make it a better place.

    For 2010 I did not make any resolutions however I made goals and a few plans to change a few things about my life – below are some of my changes…

    I plan on laughing more, being more social – developing more friendships or relationships, giving more, etc.

  2. Natasha good for you. Spread the joy, Thank you for your input all it takes is one small change to create a huge effect on your life and others around you.

  3. Charles,
    First, I love the movie “Ground Hog Day.” I’ve watched it many times, but never made the connections you so thoughtfully made about using it to make positive changes to your life. Thank you for taking the time to point this out.

    Second, I’m joining your Ground Hog Day Movement! The change I’m committing to is eating 3 vegetables a day. I know this sounds ridiculous compared to being a kinder person, but it is important to me and by writing it here, I know Charles will make me stick to it.

    Thank you Charles for this amazing opportunity to become a better person!

  4. Kathy you are one of a kind. Brussel sprouts would be the way to go. But if not find the 3 veggies and stick to it. Thank you for your input.

    Nice Charles! I love the movie and the idea you put here. Lots of people are trapped and experience a Ground Hog periods in their life even without realizing it. Sometimes it just worth to stop and think it over for a while to break the cycle. Thank you for raising this issue! )))
