It’s Saint Patrick’s Day weekend as I write this, which for many people means wearing green and imbibing too much over the weekend. For me, it means love, because on March 17, 1984, I met the guy. It was a significant day.
The guy is my husband, the one I love, and the father of our grown daughter, grandfather to our grands.
Imagine today is the day that you will look back on for the rest of your life and remember every detail because it was so significant.
I will always think of my husband when I see a shamrock or hear the word Celtics, because the Boston Celtics were playing the Atlanta Hawks in the Omni in Atlanta the night we met. It was my first night at a new part time job as an usher seating people at the basketball game.
One day changed our lives forever.
The timing was perfect. We were both looking for the right someone ready to take on the world. We were looking, expecting to meet that someone any day, someone who would love us back. Saint Patrick’s Day was the significant day.
Its as if the Irish holiday and all of its related green and celebrations are just for us.
You never know what a day will bring.
Every day has the potential for something amazing, but our outlook can derail a days potential. Our outlook can improve a days potential too. If you are looking for opportunity, then it will present itself in some form. You will recognize your great thing when you are looking for that great thing. If you are expecting trouble, well you might get that. If you are expecting a significant day, then you will get one.
You might not know on the day how significant it is, but expecting something amazing opens a door.
Today could be that day. The day you meet someone significant, the day you feel better, the day your income changes dramatically, the day you find that thing you have been looking for. What we expect, what we look for and think about is what is coming our way. Make sure what you are thinking about is something you want to see happen. Start to look towards tomorrow with expectation and a positive view.
Tell your mind and your world better things are coming.
This could be your weekend. You could end up wearing green and smiling for the rest of your life.
Make it count.
