About five or so years ago (realistically, it could have been anywhere between 2 and 9 years ago because I have no concept of time), my dad said something to me that stuck.
We were in Florida waiting for a shuttle to take us to Disney World. At this point, I was single and ready to mingle. By "single and ready to mingle", I really mean "single and this kinda stinks because who really wants to try to meet people and go on crummy dates?" Blugh.
Anyways, my dad said "Hey, you might meet the love of your life today."
For some reason, it stuck with me for all of these years. Why?
The coolest thing about this statement is the positivity that floats all around it. Today, I might meet the person who I will love for the rest of my life. And hey, if it doesn't happen today, tomorrow presents another "today" for the opportunity to happen all over again. Well, I'm blessed in that I met my man love and so I'm no longer on the hunt for this person. But can't this simple phrase be extended into so much more?
Today, you might get a job.
Today, you might meet a new friend.
Today, you might have an awesome workout.
Today, you might change someone's life.
Today, you might learn something new.
Today, you might inspire someone.
From time to time, I remember this little sentence my dad said to me years ago. I remember it, I think about it, and I apply it to whatever that day might hold for me. Once we all start looking at "today" as a time for great opportunities to happen, we will be golden. With this slight change of a mindset, just imagine what we're capable of.
