The World is Your Oyster

Recently I went to a bridal shower …. I haven’t done this in a while. Most of my friends have been married forever, yep, like me!  I had that sunami of weddings; one summer I had 4 in a row! Then came the baby showers! OH MY!! Next it’ll be the Over-The-Hill parties, then to retirement parties.  I’d like to think that somewhere between now and the funerals I know loom ahead we’ll have some serious fun again.

But …. I digress …

The bridal shower.  These days, baby and bridal showers are co-ed – yup – so the men go too! This one was excellent! It was hosted at my friend’s salon that is a convert from an old house so it’s got that cozy, homey feel! There were no silly bridal games, you know the ones, where all the bows go on a paper plate and the bride has to do some awkward dance with the plate tied to the top of her head? Yeah, none of that here. Just good ole fashioned socializing, catching up with the bride-to-be and meeting her husband to be. world in oysterIn this catching up, I got to hear the story of their ‘chance’ encounter and got me to thinking.

You see, she was in Australia and, chance would have it, he was too … she lives in the U.S. and he lives in Canada, and he was wearing a Cornell University shirt. She saw the shirt, ran over to him (okay … it was MORE than the shirt that caused her to run ….) and struck up a conversation.

PRIMARY example of Opportunity Knocking and Opening the Door.

Can you believe that she found her husband to be in Australia? Half way across the world to find him and living just next door …. well … sorta, the U.S. and Canada ARE neighbors after all.

You never know when opportunity will present itself. It’s so important to keep your eyes wide, your ears alert, your heart open, and your ability to take action in prime shape!!

I see too often opportunities passed, open doors closed, and life changing decisions turned stale. How many time have you let these things happen to you? It’s almost a New Year and I encourage you to make changes TODAY! START the NEW YEAR a New YOU. Seize moments, make choices, and take decisive action! It is better to have made an attempt unsuccessfully than to not have made an attempt at all. It is better to know something didn’t work out than to wonder what if ….?

What is YOUR End of Year Resolutions?
